With Mother’s Day just around the corner, do you know how you’re going to celebrate the mom in your life? If gifts and flowers aren’t exactly in your budget this year, we have a few suggestions to make mom feel loved and appreciated on her special day–no purchase necessary.
Here are 10 nice things to do for your mom (or wife, sister, daughter, etc.) this Mother’s Day that don’t require buying gifts:
- Make her breakfast in bed
It doesn’t have to be extravagant. Try this easy egg muffin recipe for a yummy Mother’s Day breakfast.
- Do the laundry
If laundry is a recurring task on her to-do list, pitch in for the day so she can take a load off.
- Wash the dishes
Clean up after everyone else so she doesn’t have to.
- Fetch the groceries
Are you starting to notice a theme here? Take the chores off her hands and she’ll appreciate you for it!
Watch the kids while she pampers herself. Sometimes peace and quiet is the best gift you can give.
- Take her on a mini roadtrip
Drive to a scenic park to have a picnic. Or take her down memory lane and visit places you know are meaningful to her.
- Clean her car
Wash and wax the exterior. Vacuum and dust the interior. The next time she gets in, it will feel brand new.
- Make a memory jar
Write down some favorite memories you’ve shared together and place them in a jar or small box.
- Write her a poem or “thank you” letter
However you choose to express your love and adoration, they’re words she’ll remember.
- Call, email, or text
If you can’t be there to tell her in person, just make sure you find a way to tell her: Thanks, Mom!
