Every year mother’s day is a bit of a stumper. What to do, what to gift? How do you show love and appreciation on a tight college budget without seeming like it is?
Perhaps a breakfast.
Wake up early, cook pancakes or a quiche for the family.
Family get together.
Normally my grandparents, aunts and cousins all get together to have a bbq which is nice. As a family, all the mothers receive flowers and presents from their children. Every mother at least mine anyway, enjoys spending time with their children whether that be watching a movie, playing cards, or sharing a meal together.
If you’re planning on cooking for mom, she is not expecting a world class chef, unless you are one. Ha. Make it simple; a protein, vegetable and carb. Do not under any circumstances forget dessert though, it’s just as important as those veggies. This year I am making strawberry hearts.
Table Décor: Flowers. Nuts. Kisses. Hugs.
Take her out of the house for a massage or facial. Does she like activities? Not every mother enjoys flowers so think outside of the box. Play cards, board games, who knows mom best question game. Has she been asking for you to do something specific such as paint a room in the house or go through photos for a scrapbook? Whatever it is, just remember it is not about being able to repay her with expensive things, let’s be honest you’ll never be able to! Focus on spending time with her, showing appreciation, and kindness.
