I always get in a weird space when Mother’s Day is approaching. Mostly, because I am a mother and I have a mother. It’s always a struggle between making my mother feel special and appreciated but then again I just want to be selfish and stay in bed all day. Am I the only one? I am? Fine, I didn’t like you that much anyway. Below is my list of 5 completely free Mother’s day gifts that she will actually love. Unless, your mom really likes expensive gifts. Then, by all means, buy her something, Mother’s Day Gift Shop
Okay, here is my list of the things that moms would actually appreciate on Mother’s Day. You don’t have to spend absolutely any money. These are free and I promise just as special as any expensive gift.
It’s the simple things. Most moms live in a home that in some way needs to cleaned, dusted, mowed or swept. To wake up or come home from work and have nothing to clean or have one less thing to clean. Literally ecstasy. I’m not joking. Ask your mom.
As a mother of teenagers, my goal in life right now is to just get these kids graduated. Whether it be from high school or college, to get a present that is just a copy of a diploma would literally make me jump for joy and cry real tears.
Leave Her Alone
Some moms are introverts too. We enjoy our alone time. Especially if you have a mom that is always putting others before herself. Those moms that are constantly nurturing, care, cleaning, loving, worrying, I could literally go one forever, for someone else. There are a lot, probably thousands, of mom that would love a day to themselves. Even if that means staying home in bed watching Netflix, eating high calorie foods and napping with no guilt.
Spend Time With Her
I know, I know. I literally just explained why your mom might want to be left alone. But, some moms just want to spend more time with their children. I know weird right? Indulge me. When was the last time you spent a day with her? She misses your face. She might nag you about your life choices. She might hate your boyfriend and tell you that every chance she gets. She might think your outfit is too revealing, too modest or just plain stupid. Either way, love on her in person and let her love on you in person.
Do that thing she spent so much time/money/stress on
So, when you were 8 years old, you were completely obsessed with yo-yoing. So, Thelma, your mom’s name is Thelma in this scenario. Thelma, went out and bought you a yoyo. Thelma, spent countless hours watching you practice this yoyo. Thelma also spent time taking you to the yoyo guru conference that arrived in the city near you. Thelma watched you completely suck at yo-yoing but positively encouraged your horrible yo-yoing dreams. When you turned 9 you ditched the yoyo for baseball. This Mother’s Day, you better pull out that yoyo and do the best yo-yoing you have ever done in your life. Bust those dope yoyo moves, son. She will remember. And she will love every terrible minute.
That’s it. Remember you only get one mom. Appreciate her now. It’s important. Love you Lydia.
