6 sweet gift ideas for Mom
A subscription to her favorite magazine is seriously the gift that keeps on giving…all year long! You can score a pile of issues for about 10 bucks on Amazon thanks to their great deals. Head to your local newsstand to pick up the current issue to give her on the big day.
Something she’s been wanting for ages. No, we’re not talking the gorge necklace at the local jeweler’s. We’re thinking more on the home front. Has she been bugging you to clean out your closets? Do it now, without saying a word. Is she sick of you and your bro fighting? Call a ceasefire.
A mix CD of songs she never knew she would like. Give her soft rock and oldies faves a 2011 update. Toss in some artists you know she loves, or some fresh covers of the songs she knows all the words to.
Her fave dinner…made by Y-O-U. Enlist your sibs and other family members to help you grocery shop, chop veggies and wash the dishes. Don’t let Mom lift a finger, though! Even if the meal isn’t exactly right, she’ll love the show of thoughtfulness and effort.
An IOU for something super useful.
Does Mom hate ironing? Offer to do it for the month of May. Did she just get a cool new smartphone that she has no idea how to use? Tell her you’ll give her a tutorial—and surprise her by inputting all of her contacts.
A gift basket filled with something you two could do together. Think a spa day with cucumber masks and perfect pedi goodies, or movie tix and your fave candy for a cinema outing.
