The mom coupon is an oldie but a goodie. This works especially well if the mom in your life is raising young children, or if you just need a great fallback. You can use any of the templates on the internet, or even the one pictured above! You can also write your own coupons and make the redeemable options something specific to your mom’s interests. Some of our favorites are coupons for, breakfast in bed, a certain amount of alone time, and cleaning or cooking so your mom doesn’t have to.
Emergency Mom Kit
This year, try making up for all those times you gave your mom a headache with this creative gift idea. You can put anything you want inside the Emergency Mom Kit, but we suggest some Advil, for the inevitable next headache, chocolate, because who doesn’t like chocolate, and a face mask or moisturizer to help her relax on her day off. You can even put some of your Mom Coupons in there!
A Mother’s Day scavenger hunt is a way to make this Mother’s Day memorable and certainly more fun. You can design the scavenger hunt however you want, but here are some of our ideas. You can buy, or make, several small gifts for her and hide them throughout the house, giving hints about where the others are, leading her to her big present. Or you can place hints around the house that lead your mom outside for a lovely picnic, or whatever activity you have planned for her!
Tiny reminders written on post-it notes, or whatever you see fit, and are an adorable way of showing the mother in your life why she’s so wonderful. These reminders can act as a perfect supplemental gift that can keep on giving long after Mother’s Day. Writing things like, “We love you!” or, “You’re the best mom ever!” on small post-it notes and hiding them around the house will brighten up your mom’s day whenever she stumbles across them. Be sure to hide them in places she uses a lot so she can find your kind words!
