In this day of selfies and digital photography, it’s true that we all have thousands and thousands of images in hard drives, flash drives, and cell phones. Very rarely do we actually print them out. Do something special and find a favorite picture of your mom, alone or with family, maybe with her grand children. Any picture that she particularly loves. Take it to the nearest drug store and have it printed. Get a photo frame in the same store that compliments the image and voila… a personal gift that she will cherish and see on a daily basis. Guaranteed to bring a smile to her face daily.
Total cost? Less than twenty dollars.
Salon Manicure and Pedicure:
Most moms are just too busy to indulge themselves in what they consider a luxury. They are conditioned to be nurturers and end up sacrificing themselves for others. What better way to pamper and show them that they are in turn appreciated by having them get a proper manicure and pedicure. Even though it lasts only a couple of hours, it is cherished. For just a bit, they have some alone time, away from the house, the chores, the screaming kids and whatever else.

What do l mean by time? I mean actual time spent with them doing whatever it is they want to do. That might even be nothing. A lot of kids grow up, leave home and only call on occasion. While it’s true that you deserve to live your own life, it is also important to your parents to spend time with you. They may irritate you, but that is par for the course. Take time to talk to them, listen to them. Enjoy her company, watch the movie she wants, refrain from rolling your eyes, and save the arguments and anger for another day. It’s her day, let her enjoy it.
Total cost? $0
