Mother’s Day is fast approaching. With mid-May on the horizon, it may be a good idea for servicemen and women to consider what they will do for their moms on this holiday. Remember, your mom likely doesn’t want you to break the bank if you plan on getting something, but you can still do a nice thing for her if you are short on cash.
Tips if you live near Mom
If you are in close proximity to your mom, there are many affordable things you can do to celebrate her day.
- Bring your mom out to dinner – A great option is to bring mom out to dinner. Going to a relatively inexpensive spot may be a good choice, as it is the thought that counts. Try to go to a place that has her favorite food type.
- Get her a small gift – A small token of gratitude is sure to make her smile. Even if you just go to the store and find a flower arrangement you think she will like, it could make her very happy. Also, don’t forget a card!
Ideas if you are far away
If you are on the other side of the country, or the other side of the world, giving your mom something for Mother’s Day can be quite special.
- Send Mom a care package – One great way to send your mom something is through a care package. Just like she may have done while you were far away, doing the same for her can mean a lot.
- Personalize your gift – Flower delivery can be expensive, but you can send a nice gift. A package including a letter, a picture of you (or possibly one with you and her), may be exactly what she is looking for. Whatever you send, there are many services that offer flat-rate boxes to help save cash.
