14 Ideas for Mother’s Day
That Cost Time, Not Money
By Ellen Freudenheim
- From the heart: Tell Mom you love her, however you do it; with a hug, a note on the fridge, a letter in the mail, or straight out “I Love You!”
- Play Mom to mom: Cook mom a meal — and make sure you clean the kitchen up afterward.
- Make her home beautiful: Clean your room (and maybe the whole house) to perfection.
- Make her proud: Get an A on your next test or paper, if you’re in school.
- Give her some of these funny printable coupons, for instance, “share the remote controller.”
- Teach her something useful: Offer Mom two or three sessions of computer assistance; you know more than she does, and most women over the age of 40 could use an upgrade of their computer skills.
- Make a handmade momento: make a card, write a poem, take a photo, make a photo frame, make a memory.
- Do the laundry or ironing, if that’s a job that usually falls to Mom.
- Share your energy: Invite her for a walk that lasts for at least a half hour, or a bike ride.
- Share her interests: Is there some volunteer activity your mom cares about? Help her out with her envelope-stuffing, money collection or phone calls, whatever needs doing. Does she like to read? Get a library book out by her favorite author. Does she like to dance or laugh? Put some music on, tell a joke!
- Lend a hand: Help her with a project whether that’s spring cleaning decluttering, painting the bathroom, or reformatting her resume.
- Share some e-love: Send her a sweet email.
- Share your life: Tell her the last names of three of your new friends, or something about your life that she’d like to know (Mothers do want to know).
- Share your dreams: Tell her what you want to be and how you’d like your life to look when you grow up (even if you’re not sure), or move out.
