Mother’s day does not always have to be about material gifts like flowers or jewelry. Sometimes the best gift you can give is the gift of time and an extra set of hands to help with household tasks.
Some of these things are especially suited for a younger person, while other are just nice ways to show your mom that you care. Either way, they are small things that will make your mom feel special on her big day.
If your mom is older, maybe she’s just coming around to using an iPad or getting onto Facebook for the first time. These tools seems like second nature to most of us, but can be intimidating to those who are new to them.
For Mother’s Day, help your mom set up her new technology or maybe fix something that’s been broken. Taking on a job like this requires a lot of patience and a sense of humor, but will be well worth it in the end.
If you have kids, this is a great opportunity for them to connect with their grandmother. Bonding over technology will build lasting connections across generations.
The weather in most parts of the country on Mother’s Day is perfect for starting to plant vegetables and herbs. This is a gift that will keep on giving throughout the summer and for years to come as the garden grows. You could even turn it into a family tradition of planting something new in the garden each Mother’s Day.
Remodeling a house can be an overwhelming task, especially for an older mom who lives alone or a younger mom who has kids to take care of. Plus, moms of all ages tend to put their own needs behind everyone else’s.
Mother’s Day is the perfect time to talk with your mom about her home ideas then take steps to make them happen. The biggest hurdles are often making time to schedule an appointment or sitting down to think about what you want to do. Help your mom in those areas by calling to schedule a consultation or setting aside some time to help her get a remodeling game plan together.
