How about flowers for Mother’s Day? Pick up the phone or hop online and in a few minutes you can have a lovely arrangement sent with only a medium hit on your credit card. But maybe you’d like to do something a bit more personal. Which flowers do you think a mom would rather have: the professional arrangement or the posies in this photo? Yes, I think so too.
Young children often make special handmade presents for mom in school to give her on her day. But if your kids are older, or you’re the adult kid planning something for your mom, you may feel obligated to do more. Or you want to make something with your children as a family to let the mom or moms in your life know that they are important.
You happen to be in luck. Even if you are fairly clueless on what to do or make, you have an amazing resource for ideas: Pinterest. Just do a search for Mother’s Day handmade gifts, or – better yet – visit the Fulton Homes Mother’s Day Pinterest board. You’ll find ideas, printable cards and pictures to color, simple yet attractive crafts, recipes, and even some fun ideas for photos for mom.
Here’s one idea to get you started. Cut some hearts out of colored paper or scrapbook prints and spell out something special for mom to discover when she comes downstairs on Sunday. You could hang it like this photo to the right or just tape them on the refrigerator.
Above all, think of something personal, something that takes a bit of effort, and something that acknowledges how amazing life is because she’s in it. You can do this.
