Select a picture of your kids or a family picture and then record a message where your kids say something like, “We love you mommy.” This is a gift that she will treasure for the rest of her life. Also this is a very affordable gift allowing you to buy other wonderful gifts for Mother’s Day.
Thoughtful Mother’s Day Gifts #2: Breakfast in Bed
Breakfast in bed is not only a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift, but it also helps you to teach your children how to cook. Choose a simple menu such as bacon with stuffed French toast, fresh fruit and fresh squeezed orange juice. Allow your children to do preparations that are appropriate for their age, for example, let extremely young children wash the fresh fruit while the older children cut the fruit.
Thoughtful Mother’s Day Gifts #3: Homemade Card
A homemade Mother’s Day card is another thoughtful gift that will be treasured forever. Young children will love this project because it allows them to express their creativity. Allow each child to make their own card or suggest that they work on the card together, which would help to avoid rivalry. Give them all the supplies they will need including crayons, markers, constructions paper, scissors, glue, and any other creative supplies they may want.
Thoughtful Mother’s Day Gifts #4: Flowers
Flowers always make a thoughtful gift. Whether you buy flowers for your wife on Mother’s Day or send a large bouquet to your mother this is an important addition to the special day. To make this gift even more thoughtful, buy flowers that can be planted. Tulips, for example, are easy to plant and bloom every year, always reminding your wife or mother of you and the children.
Thoughtful Mother’s Day Gifts #5: Thank You Letter
Thanksgiving is not the only day to give thanks. On Mother’s Day give your mother a letter that thanks her for all that she has done to make your life more enjoyable. It’s best to actually give examples and show her how much those specials times still mean to you. For example, thank her for allowing you to stay out late on the night you met your wife or thank her for encouraging you to go to college which led to your dream job. Don’t be surprised if your mom cries after receiving this thoughtful gift.
Thoughtful Mother’s Day Gifts #6: Scrapbook
If you make this thoughtful gift for your wife, choose pictures of the children and family. Include items that are mementos from special days, such as those tickets from Disney World. You could place those next to pictures from the vacation. If you’re making this for your mother, contact your father and ask him to gather items that your mother has hung onto, such as drawings and old photos. Fill the scrapbook with all the drawings that she’s kept over the year. Include homemade cards from past Mother’s Day celebrations and any other memories your mother has been holding onto. This is truly a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift that will stand the test of time.
