Gift ideas for mom on mother’s day
Some find Mother’s Day gift ideas a breeze. For others… well, we settle for what we have to work with. For the past few years, ever since I discovered “gift cards,” that’s been my easy way out of gift giving. Yes, easy and predictable if done repeatedly over the years.
Why not give her a gift that will surprise and delight her with that special touch of adding a poem to it? If you decide not to be predictable (like I did) this year, then ask yourself these questions:
What is my mom passionate about? What are her hobbies? What are the likes and dislikes of it? He likes art? Films? Flowers? comedy? Read? Craft? What about traveling? Does she have any special needs? What language does she feel most comfortable speaking?
If she feels more comfortable speaking in Spanish, then a card with poetry in that language will probably move and surprise her. She knows that you are not a poet and that she will probably even more appreciate the effort to find that special in her own language.
The surprise part will be that it was so unpredictable! So go ahead and get him that poem. It can also be written on your card to accompany your gift.
Also, try to avoid last minute purchases! We all know how stressful it can be to bump into people or be jostled by other shoppers walking past you.
Happy Mother’s Day Gift Finding Adventures!
