Your mom, she’s your rock and you would move the moon and stars for her in a heartbeat. She taught you many life-lessons and most importantly, she told you the boogie man is not real. If you are on a cash-strapped budget and you want to show her your love and appreciation with a Mother’s Day gift – look no further.
Planning Mother’s Day on a cash-strapped budget: six easy-to-follow tips for any budget
1) Treat your mom to her favourite meal. Go grocery shopping for all the special ingredients needed to prepare your mom’s favorite meal. Nothing says, “I love you,” more than creating your mom’s favorite dinner with your own two hands.
2) If your mom lives out of town and you are unable to visit her this Mother’s Day, you can show mom you care by bringing everyone to her-on a video call. Don’t forget to include all your siblings and the grandkids too. She will be so excited to see everyone at once.
3) Let your mother take a load off her feet and give your mom the day off. Relieve her of all her responsibilities, obligations and tasks. Let her relax and catch up on some sleep or even some of her favourite television shows. She deserves the break.
4) Don’t forget to tell your mom, I love you. Nothing beats hearing those three special words any day, but even more so, today. There are so many ways to tell your mom you love her. You can write a letter, mail a Mother’s Day card or simply place a note in her purse. And sometimes, just telling her is the best thing you can do.
5) Create a scrap or memory book. Your mom will enjoy walking down memory lane and re-living family events filled with love and fun. After all, what mother doesn’t love a book of photos!
6) Set some time aside on Mother’s Day to do your mom’s favourite activities. This day is about her, and with a little planning, you can show her how much you appreciate her by doing the things she loves to do.
Whatever you plan for your mom this Mother’s Day, she will appreciate it. Just remember to create a manageable budget for your Mother’s Day plans and stick to it.
