I like my Mother's Days pretty simple: a yummy breakfast, a day of gardening and lots of sweet kisses from my daughters. We're past the diaper stage, but it was also always nice to get a day off from that duty.
How do you like to celebrate Mother's Day? What gifts, if any, are you hoping to receive this year?
Give that some thought, and then close your eyes, moms, and pass the computer to the kids. I'm about to round up some ways the family can honor you on Mother's Day.
Ways to celebrate Mom:
- From intangible to luxurious, here are some Mother's Day gift ideas from the Kids' Parties archives. Apryl Duncan, About.com's Guide to Stay-at-Home Moms, has a great mom-gift list on her site, too.
- Follow this general advice for involving kids in a Mother's Day celebration.
- Get your craft on. Check out these Mother's Day craft ideas from Sherri Osborn, About.com's Guide to Family Crafts.
- I also love Martha Stewart's ideas for Mother's Day gifts kids can make. I know just where I'd put these cherry blossoms.
- The Tip Junkie has some cute Mother's Day ideas on her site, too, as does The Crafty Crow. I seriously would wear this heart necklace every day if my kids made it for me (found via The Crafty Crow).
OK, moms, now go draw a warm bath, pour yourself a cup of tea (or wine, if you prefer) and get ready to enjoy your special day.
