Birthday Gift Ideas for Your Mother

My mother is coming 42 on May 5, 2014. Actually we're just poor. She doesn't like any spa, make-ups, and any fashionistic things.

We're just living in a very simple life. She is a farmer honestly. And I don't know what to give to her. I really don't have an idea. Can you guys help me?

Think of the things she does like but can't afford, then make her some "coupons" that you and her friends/family can provide. If she loves to plant flowers but can't, offer a coupon for one whole day of planting flowers...or if she wants a nice afghan for the cold weather coming, have someone or someones make a square a week then put them together.

Can she still clean the windows? If not, someone can make a coupon for that. Does she love Italian food but can't afford it? Do any of her friends want to make her a dish a month for a year? How about a hug a day? A nice massage? Does the car need to be washed? Offer to photo graph the belongings in the house in case of a disaster?

There are always things we can do that can be made into coupons that she can "redeem" when needed. I hope that helped.

As a poor mom myself (my income not my parenting) I would suggest something simple. Make her her favorite dinner or dessert. Get a movie from the library that she loves or has wanted to see and watch it with her.


Clean up the dishes,bathroom,laundry etc as a surprise for her. Write her a heartfelt letter. Make a collage of old pictures of you and her. It is really the simple thins that mean the most.

Hi, being poor or rich doesn't matter to a mom. You can gift her a handwritten card in which you can express how thankful you are to have such a supporting and lovely mother.
