You did this, right?
HOW COULD YOU FORGET YOUR MOTHER LIKE THAT?!? AFTER ALL SHE'S DONE FOR YOU?
Just kidding. As a mom, I'm a firm believer that while having a special day is nice, there's really no need to make a special fuss on Mother's Day.
I demand recognition of my hard work, sacrifice and dedication on a daily basis. Just kidding! Sort of. Mostly. 95% kidding, okay?
Anyways, if you are in the mood to do something different from the usual card/flowers routine for your Mom this year, Martha has some great ideas.
Is your Mom into movies and Hollywood glamour? This ticket stub sentiment would be perfect for her:
Better yet, have a family movie night in honor of Mom and be sure to let her pick the movie:
Is your Mom the crafty type? Give her a package with everything she needs to complete a craft. Then, and this might be the most important part of the package, give her the TIME to do the craft. Seriously, go mow the lawn or do some laundry. Maybe clean the house. Just sayin'.
Unless she specifically asked for a Big Ball necklace. Seriously, Martha has a TON of great crafts on her site, but I just cannot get behind this.
In summary: for Mother's Day, a movie night or craft package is great. Big Ball necklace? Not so much.
At least, not for this mom! Happy Mother's Day!
