The homemade gifts we used to make for mom were made from love, and mom loved them more than anything! As we get older, those homemade gifts are traded in for for more tangible items. But more than likely most moms don't  treasure  them any more than the homemade ones from when you were just a kid. 

They may prefer such gifts of love even more now. That’s why we’re presenting five ways to give a Mother’s Day gift from the heart. 

  • Schedule a one-on-one girls’ night out: Sure, you might see your mother all the time, but do you ever find yourself always “doing for,” and seldom “being with?” Consider setting aside a date night with your mom: get dressed up and go to dinner, get mani-pedis, catch a show – anything to break from routine and do something you’ll both enjoy.
  • Help with photo albums and scrapbooks: If your mom is like many of us, she probably has a stack of mementos and photos that she has just never gotten around to organizing. How about dedicating a day – or one day a month for however long it takes – to help her? Not only will it give her an excuse to tackle the project, but strolling down memory lane is so much more enjoyable when you’re with someone you love.
  • Help her start a container garden: Whether your mom is a perennial green thumb, or this is her first go, container gardens are an easy-to-maintain way to bring some new life into the picture – and they can be adapted to any environment. All you need is a pot, some seeds or seedlings and a patch of sunlight to get started. For more tips, click here.
  • Make being present your present: This goes beyond just physically being there to help, but actually committing to being mentally and emotionally present, too. We are always so distracted and rushed that sometimes it’s easy to let our minds wander or get impatient when we’re around someone with a quieter, slower lifestyle than our own. Instead, try to be in the moment when you’re with your mom. She will appreciate it and your own peace of mind will probably benefit from the calm.

We wish all mother's a very Happy Day!
