It’s almost Mother’s Day, and hopefully you’ve had some time to check out these great Mother’s Day gift ideas. Now I’m back to share some great ideas for spoiling your mothers, the kids’ grandmothers! I don’t know about you, but both my mother and my mother-in-law do so much for my family. I love taking the time to let them know how special they are to us!
1) Have the kiddos make Grandma something homemade.
Handprint gifts are really great keepsakes. Here are 10 DIY Craft Ideas, and here are some more handprint ideas. Cookies or other baked goods can be a nice homemade treat. Get the kids in the kitchen to help with the baking – Grandma will adore hearing how the little ones helped!
2) Give Grandma the pampering she deserves!
She works hard, and is always willing to help with the kids. Give her the gift of a massage, or a manicure and pedicure. Find out her favorite spa or salon, or talk with friends and look at reviews if you aren’t sure which one to choose.
3) Surprise her with tickets to a concert or show in your area.
Last year, we splurged on Mother’s Day for our moms, because they helped us out so much with the baby when I had to go back to work for six weeks. Also, because they’re awesome! We gave my mom tickets to see Carrie Underwood, and she asked me to go with her! Thanks Mom! For my mother-in-law, we got tickets for her to see the American Idol concert. Maybe these concerts aren’t right for your mothers, check StubHub to find shows in your area. You could check out local theaters for plays, or even look for local sporting events.
4) Show her you care with some Grandmother keepsakes.
One year, we gave my mother this Loving Family birthstone necklace. We were able to add to it when our second child came along with her birthstone. This is a great gift, because it can grow as the family grows. I also love the saying, “The only thing better than having you as my mom is my children having you for a Grandmas.” This rustic wood plaque is the one we got my mother a few years ago. I also love this cotton print which you could frame, or even place in a shadow box with some photos and other keepsakes. Or, maybe you’re announcing a new baby to the family this year, this would be a great way to share the news.
5) Spend time together.
More important than any of the gifts I mentioned above, take time to be with your mom. Celebrate her and all that she has done for you over the years. One of my greatest joys of parenthood is watching my children with their grandparents, it’s a wonderful love that is like no other.
Happy Mother’s Day! Don’t forget to pin these ideas, and comment below with your own ideas too!
