Last Minute Gifts for Your Mom
This Sunday, here comes the Mother's Day. When you woke up on Sunday and suddenly thought, "No!! I have not bought my mother any gift.” What will you do? Rush to the nearest store and pick up anything you can get. Do you think it really can show your appreciation to your mom? Why not try something new to show your love? Instead of giving presents, you can do something for your mom.
1. Prepare a breakfast for her
Mom is usually the earliest one that gets up in a family. She prepares breakfast for the whole family around the year. This time, you try to get up early and make a breakfast for her. Having a sweet sleep definitely lightens up her day. The aroma of baked toast and coffee and the time you spend together will be a sweet memory for her. If you are a green hand, you can get help from Blue Apron.
2. Take her to the theater
If your mom loves drama, music or show, you can buy a ticket for her. Whether she likes comedy or tragedy, classical, rock, pop or jazz, you are sure to find premier tickets on StubHub. Most tickets can be printed directly from your home computer, so even though you waited until the last minute to buy a gift you can still present her with tickets on Mother's Day. For an extra special touch print out a calendar and draw a heart around the date of the event.
3. Organize an excursion
4. Subscribe TV & Movie channels
If your mom just enjoys staying at home and loves to cuddle up on the couch with a soft blanket and watch TV, Direct Now, Hulu and Netflix subscriptions make great gifts. Whether your mom loves to watch movies, old television shows or new series, she's sure to find something enticing. Both services offer gift subscriptions with welcome information that can be printed out, wrapped and presented immediately after purchase.
5. Write a heartfelt letter
How long haven't you spent time chatting with your mom? Do you have some heartfelt words to her but just feel embarrassed to tell? What about writing a letter to her? Think back on your childhood and reflect on your favorite memories with your mom. Tell her about the time she picked you up early from school, the time she helped you when you were sick or simply the way she made you feel cared for and loved. Cherry pick your favorite mother-daughter or mother-son moments and try to capture the emotion and love you shared in those events. While other gifts may come and go, a heartfelt Mother's Day letter will be stowed in a special place and treasured for many years to come.
Whatever you prepare for you mom, the most important is always the time you spent with her.
