7 Ideas of What to Get Mom for Mother's Day

You want to get your mother the perfect gift for mother's day. You have probably spent enough time with her to know some of her likes and dislikes. Here are some suggestions to think about.

1. Coupons- do you have more time than money? Is there a service that you are willing to provide for her? How about a book of coupons that she can redeem to have you take her shopping or clean her house (or car) or weed her flower gardens.

2. Flowers or houseplants- this is a sure way to brighten her day.  If you have flowers growing in your yard or garden, pick them and put them in a nice vase with a beautiful bow tied around it.

3. Candy or chocolate- does she have a favorite candy?  If she enjoys chocolate- how about giving her a gourmet chocolate gift basket.  If money is tight, you could even buy a basket, some chocolates and other items to make it yourself.

4.  Girl's day out- if she likes that kind of thing, take her out for a nice lunch or to a tea room for some tea or coffee and cookies. Afterwards you could go to a movie theater and catch a movie you know she would enjoy.  Make it memorable for her.

5. Shopping- does she enjoy shopping? How about a gift certificate to her favorite store and if she needs (or would enjoy) a ride, make plans to take her.

6. Photos- many mothers enjoy pictures of their children and grandchildren. How about a photo greeting card.  These usually cost around $3.  You could also get a family photo taken and enlarged and put it in a nice picture frame. 

7. A pastime gift-what is her favorite pastime or hobby?  Does she like to scrapbook- how about filling a cute basket with all types of scrap booking supplies.  Does she enjoy working outdoors or in the garden? Buy a planter and fill it with gardener's gloves and things she can use in the garden.

8. Plan a family dinner or reunion- does she enjoy being around her family? How about arranging a time for everyone to get together and bring a dish. Do everyone a favor and keep it simple. Use paper plates and cups so it will be easy to clean up afterwards.
