A Tween’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide: 8 Thoughtful Gifts that won’t Cost You any $$
She doesn’t have to be a mother to be celebrated. Every woman contributes to the well-being of the community. While Mother’s Day can be a difficult holiday for some to celebrate, there are ways you can say, “thanks,” and “I love you.”
Don’t run out and spend a lot of money on a generic gift basket or perfume. Put some thought into what she likes to do. Does she have any hobbies? Does she collect special things? Would she just like to have some alone time?
Most females could use more time. Arrange for her to have the day off from everything she ordinarily does. That may mean doing her chores while you do your chores. You will not only give her the gift of time, but you will come to truly appreciate everything she does for your family.
Depending on the groceries you have available, you could make her favorite dinner and cleanup afterwards. Make sure you have other adult supervision.
Make her a coupon book of services, then fulfill them faithfully. Maybe do some of those services without being asked.
Do your own laundry for a month. If you’re over 8 years old you could take that chore on permanently. Learn how to do it correctly.
Write her a thank you note, a letter of appreciation. This is something she can keep for years to come and give her a lift when she gets discouraged.
Give her a foot rub. If that grosses you out you can wear vinyl gloves. They are sold at Sam’s Club and Costco in bulk. And remember, she probably did many grosser things for you.
Let her have one day where no one argues, no one even talks. Shh! The gift of peace and quiet is rare indeed.
Be kind to her. This gift could keep on giving. You can be kind every day.
