Top Gifts for Mom
A bubble bath sounds quite __________ but it makes for perfect alone time.
Hi, I'm Lauren Gores for About.com. Today, we're talking about the perfect gifts for mom because, as you know, she deserves everything-- and probably a little more. Let's start with something from the heart -- your heart. Bottom line, mom would love anything that is made by her kids. Cards, pictures, artwork, coffee mugs, gifts, you name it. If the kids made it, mom will want it, and want to frame it. Next best thing to giving from your heart, is giving mom a hand. Nothing says “I love you” like offering to do the chores you know she dreads. Tell her to kick back and relax, while you do the stuff she normally gets stuck doing. It will be a gift she won't forget-- and may ask for again next year. And while you're at it, how about making mom a meal. It doesn't need to be a four course dinner. But a simple breakfast, lunch or dinner at home, made with your loving hands (and maybe a little mom supervision depending on what kind of chef you are) will make the outcome sweet. If you're looking for something else to help mom relax, think about a set of fleece pajamas. Warm, comfy and cozy. And she'll think of you every time she pulls them from her closet. And before she gets into those jammies, make sure mom has the makings of a great bubble bath. It may seem cliché, but a quiet bath makes for the perfect alone time. And mom always needs just a little more alone time-- especially if she takes care of a bigger brood. And that's a brief look at gifts for mom. I'm Lauren Gores.
