How to Pamper Your Mother on a Budget For Mother’s Day

List: Posted: 04/28/11

With Mother's Day just around the corner, it's important to begin considering the perfect gift for the woman who gave you life.  Even if you are on a budget, there are still some great things you can do for your mom.

 

If your mother is a wine lover, take her to a wine tasting for Mother's Day.  Contact your local winery to see if they offer wine tastings, then make an afternoon of it.  Many coupon websites, such as Groupon.com or SocialLiving.com offer plenty of courses locally that will make it a memorable day.  Some wineries won't charge you unless you buy a bottle, so be bold and have some fun.

 

Most mothers slave away in the kitchen all day to provide tasty meals for their family, without considering their own needs.  Instead of taking her to an expensive brunch, opt for making her breakfast in bed so she can enjoy a lazy morning.  Create a home-made menu with items that include waffles, pancakes, yogurt and granola, cereal, oatmeal or a fruit bowl.  Make sure you do the dishes for her afterward and even offer to clean the kitchen, so she can begin the day ahead.

There’s one Mother's Day gift that won’t cost you a dime.  Free up some of her time by running errands for her.  Do all the week's laundry, grab her grocery list and hit the store. She'll really appreciate it!

 

If you want to go all-out, then get the kids to pitch in and help you clean her whole house.  Keep it a surprise so it's more of a gift, and rent her favorite movie so she can relax and enjoy her free time afterward.  Put fresh-cut flowers in a vase on the kitchen table, or buy a few small flowering potted plants and scented candles, and arrange them all around the house to brighten up each room.  For a finishing touch, make her dinner and top it off with a freshly made chocolate cake from your local bakery.  Your mother will think she's died and gone to heaven!  

For quality time together in an artistic way, take her for an afternoon at the art museum, or even take an art class that you'll both enjoy and be able to bond over.  The options are limitless - all it takes it a bit of creativity to give your mom a Mother's Day she'll always remember!
