With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I know that many of you are looking for something different, and outside of the usual gifts. Not that flowers or jewelry is ever a bad idea, but as a mom, I’m always a fan of a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift idea, especially if it involves my kids making something for me vs. buying it, no matter how old they are.
This idea came to mind because the kids and I put something together for my husband’s (gulp) 50th birthday, and I thought it would be perfect as a Mother’s Day gift as well. It’s easy, inexpensive, and something any mom would love. This post contains some affiliate links.
Here’s what you need:
The kids and I divided up the 50 cards among ourselves and wrote things that we love about Dad, and why we’re glad he was born. I took a peek at some of their cards, and they’re so sweet, funny and thoughtful – I love them!
So obviously you don’t need to do 50 Things – we did that as a birthday-specific idea. How about 10, 20, 25 things maybe? Dad could add things to the list, and if the kiddos are little, have them draw pictures, cut out magazine photos, or something along those lines. Dad could even write down what the kids say if they can’t write yet. Use your imagination! I think I speak on behalf of all moms, that we love Mother’s Day gift ideas that are thoughtful and creative, right?
