Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

There’s still a few weeks to go but you should be thinking about Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for that awesome Mom in your lives.  I know, your Mom says “Don’t get me anything”  or “I have everything I need”  or “Just being together is enough”…..anyone heard those ones before?  It’s not the thought that counts either.  We should be thoughtful of our Mom’s on Mother’s day, even if it might be difficult. A gift is an outward symbol of appreciation.  A note or letter is a symbol of the depth of our appreciation. So whether you do one or the other, or both, here’s some Mother’s Day Gift Ideas that can help make the task a little easier.

Fondness for Past Mother’s Day Gifts

Before I get to the ideas I have a cute story to tell about a Mother’s Day gift I got from my youngest son years ago.  He was in kindergarten and they made the classic hand print in plaster of Paris.  My boys gave me their gifts they made in school Sunday  morning before we headed off to church.  I get emotional about being a Mom as it was one of the greatest desires of my heart when I was young (um, it still is) I opened his little present and tears overflowed from my eyes as I looked at his small handprint and then at him, bursting with pride at what he’d made.  Off we went to church.  They must have talked about Mother’s day in their primary class that day.  A few hours later I got a call from my friend.  “Thanks a lot” she said (rather sarcastically)  “What for?” I asked.  This was her reply (to the best of my memory) “When I opened Sam’s gift for Mother’s Day today (another kindergarten aged boy who’d also made a handprint) he was disappointed I didn’t cry.  He said “Evan’s Mom cried when she opened her present”  We laughed and laughed about it and it still brings a smile and chuckle from me.
