Over the past few days I’ve heard more than a few men express concern about Mother’s Day. They want to take this opportunity to do something special for their wives or mothers, but aren’t sure exactly what to do, especially on a budget.
I thought I’d do a post with an open thread where moms could offer their thoughts on the subject. Not that anyone should feel pressure to do anything elaborate — I know that most of us moms feel like just hearing “Happy Mother’s Day” would be enough — but I thought that we might be able to provide some ideas for the guys who would like to do something but don’t know where to start.
Some questions for consideration:
- What was the best Mother’s Day gift you ever received? (Using the word “gift” loosely — it doesn’t have to be a material possession.)
- If your husband or children wanted to make Mother’s Day special for you, what could they do?
- Any other thoughts you’d like to share for husbands or children who are reading this post looking for ideas?
Bonus points for ideas that involve little or no money. 🙂 I look forward to hearing your thoughts! I’m looking for some ideas of ways to honor my mom and Yaya as well.
