You can get caught up in the hype of buying expensive presents on Mother’s Day. Now we’re not saying that your Mother isn’t worth it, but commercialism has taken away some of the true meaning of Mother’s Day. Your mum is more likely to appreciate something you have taken the time and effort to make rather than a shop bought present chosen without any real thoughtfulness.
Here are 5 Mother’s Day gifts you can make for free which tell her you love her.
1. Make a coupon book and honour them
Make a coupon book with things specific to your mum. Here are some coupon ideas:
- A BIG hug

2. Make a list of the top 10 reasons what you love about her
Hand write or cross stitch a list of 10 reasons why you love your mum and give it to her on Mother’s Day. To make your list a bit more special, frame it in a pre-loved picture frame.

5. Give her time to herself
Mums usually have a pretty busy schedule. Give her some time to be on her own doing what she wants to do. Adult partners / older children – encourage Mum to have a lie in one day then gather the family, explain you’re giving Mum a rest and split the general tasks she usually does. Once all the chores are done, take the children out for a few hours so Mum can sit and do whatever she likes.
