It’s the last week to get your mommy the gift that will put a smile on her face and have her forget how we destroyed her once sexy body. LMAO!! (What she reminds me all the time!) Now just like you money is tight (Don’t let the job fool you), so I have found/remembered some great ideas to make mommy feel like a Queen on Mothers Day.

First let me be honest I didn’t get the ideas mi familia over at galtime.com made the list I just put a stamp of approval by posting it. LMAO!!! Now let’s keep it real we have given these gift when we were younger but as adults we think it’s about how much it cost but to be honest mommy does like the expensive but she cherishes the thought.

According to Galtime.com:

Mother’s Day Cards: Sure, they’re everywhere in the stores. They’re also pricey, unimaginative and completely forgettable. If you have school age kids, help them create a card out of colored paper and – depending on their writing skill level – a small note in crayon. Trust me gang, the standard Hallmark card will be appreciated, but it’s the jaggedy cut-with-the-kindergarten-scissors construction paper special that your child spent 20 minutes carefully writing “Thank you for being my Mommy!” in 5-year-old script that will really get Mommy bawling with pride. While the Hallmark might eventually find its way into a keepsake box, rarely to be seen again, the handmade one will be framed, hung with beaming pride in the family room, and quite likely insured.

Breakfast in Bed: A timeless, priceless classic, off the charts on the brag-o-meter scale, and loads more potential for fun stories than taking Mom out to eat in an over-crowded, over-priced restaurant. Depending on the age of your kids, menu suggestions range from toast, jelly & a juice box (don’t forget to put the homemade card on the breakfast tray!) to older kids carting scrambled eggs, a scone and perhaps a champagne glass of sparkling apple juice up the stairs. Whatever you decide for the menu, trust me, Mom will adore it – proudly taking it to new brag-worthy heights as she recalls it in perfect detail to friends, family and strangers on the street later that day.

Mommies Need Swag Too!: Whatever age the mom/grandmom/mom-in-law on your shopping list might be, chances are excellent she would love to add some new jazz to her wardrobe. Hit your local consignment stores and thrift stores (a.k.a. “Tiffany’s for Tightwads”) for a fantastic selection of jewelry, scarves, handbags and other fabulous accessories. My favorite finds at local thrift stores: Hermes scarves for $5 each, Prada and Coach handbags for $7 each and gorgeous antique diamond jewelry sets for $10. Nuff said.
