Mother's Day is a time to show appreciation for the mom in your life! This day should not be an overwhelming experience. It should be one filled with love. Use the following ideas as a guide in your preparation.
Ideas for Mother's Day:

For just about any mom
  • Purchase a spa package
  • Purchase gym membership or yoga classes
  • Prepare breakfast in bed or afternoon tea
  • Create gift certificates that she can redeem during the year (ex. You may redeem this cert. for a day off from household chores and/or driving kids around. Duties will be performed by dad and kids.)
  • Get crafty and make mom a gift (t-shirt, clay hands)
