Yes, this is simple, but put your heart (not literally) into writing it. Choose your words wisely, instead just saying “I love you, mom,” maybe you can write a poem or some details that you remember the most.
2. Make a collage.
Collages are good to refresh your mom’s memories on the good times you spent together. Select some pictures you have with your mom and write a neat caption under each one, thanking your mother for the good times. It will definitely bring tears to her eyes.
3. Buy small gifts.
This will not cost a lot. Buy something like hand sanitizers, and lotion, and make-up, earrings and other small things. I recommend buying things from Bath and Body Works because their fragrances are super good and they last longer than you think! At Bath and Body Works, you can create a package of a pair, and it’s cheap so what you can do is make a package, add a small card and you’re done.
4. Buy a book.
Buying a great book for your mother is a good idea. First, you need to know your mom’s “taste” in books. What does she like the most? Adventure, Fantasy, Beauty or Romance? Aside from buying the book, you also need to give her time to read. So I suggest you take up a couple chores during that day and give her time to read books and drink tea!
5. Make a basic craft.
This is super-simple and plus, it’s DIY (do-it-yourself) and you get to be creative! Make a necklace, a bracelet, an art canvas, rainbow loom, anything related to DIY. Your parents will absolutely love it because YOU made it and THEY love YOU.
This may cost a lot. Try to bring your parents somewhere that they always wanted to go, or somewhere they didn’t expect. I personally think that everything that you would end up paying under $40 will be fine. They will enjoy it a lot. I would not suggest romantic restaurants because they always tends to be expensive!
7. Buy some flowers.
You will be thinking “this is easy.” Every flower has a language or meaning. I strongly recommend Primroses because they mean “I can’t live without you” and also Daffodil is a good one because it means the sun is always shining when I’m with you. You can choose your own flowers by going on http://thelanguageofflowers.com/ because it gives you almost all flower meaning.
9. Make breakfast in bed
My family does this every Mother’s day. My dad and I wake super early and we make toast, eggs, fruits and milk. We bring it upstairs and we wake her up and wish her a Happy Mother’s Day. I suggest picking her favourite food and fruit to surprise her. Think of what to say, to surprise her, but don’t scare her, that might ruin her day
10.Give them a hug and kiss.
