You’ve started a family; now celebrate it – plan a memorable Mother’s Day for New Mom!
In addition to presenting her with a beautiful bouquet and helping with the little one, here’s how to make the holiday special:
Create A Memorable Gift
Her first Mother’s Day is all about celebrating the birth of your first child. Gifts should focus on keepsakes to remind Mom of her tiny, precious baby.
Have a framed photo collage made of snapshots taken during the baby’s first few months of life.
Instead, give your Mom the gift of the past, present and future by creating the ultimate homemade Mother’s Day gift: a Time Capsule.
It’s heartfelt and sentimental, and gives Mom the opportunity to enjoy some of her most cherished memories.
Here’s how to make a time capsule of your own:
By planning a personalized scavenger hunt, you can tailor a gift to be as unique as Mom is – at any price that fits your budget.
All you need are some cleverly written clues, some imagination and the ideas below to give her a Mother’s Day she will be talking about for years to come.
For example, how about a scavenger/adventure hunt centered around a day out for Mom:
Every Mom deserves to enjoy her special day, but what if you don’t have a big gift budget this year? No worries, Mother’s Day is not about the amount of money you spend on your hero and most treasured friend. Plenty of fun Mother’s Day ideas don’t involve dipping into your piggy bank.
Instead, focus on how spending time with Mom doing something memorable will create the perfect day. After all, what your trusted confidant wants most on Mother’s Day is to bond with the ones who gave her the title of Mom.
