Photo of a wrapped gift for Mother's Day.With Mother's Day approaching, I thought I would suggest a few of the gifts I have received through my many Mother's Days that I have truly appreciated.

From free to more expensive, not in order however:

Remember a gift is always nice, but it really is the thought that counts, just being remembered by the children they choose to have is what means the most to any Mother.

Following my 70th birthday, my four grown children got together and sent me a beautifully hand-decorated box of little slips of paper where they'd written a Thank-You for something I'd taught them.

For Mother's Day, after quizzing my mom about what she wanted/needed, one of the things my mom requested was a joke book. I considered checking a used bookstore for a unique and inexpensive joke book but am making one myself for cheap!

So here is a really neat idea for making Mom a happy camper when she comes home after working hard and has sore feet. With a little adult supervision, this could be done by children and would be no problem for a teenager.

Soothing aching feet for Mother's Day.

A wonderful gift for Mother's Day would be to go clean an area and plant some flowers at a walk-way, right outside a window where she can enjoy the view, or at the mailbox.

Last year, I wanted to give something to my adult children on Mother's day to show them how much their mother loves and appreciates them. I made them coupon certificates for 4 hours of baby sitting. They loved it.

I read an article in Ann Landers from a girl who said she was always too busy to take time out for a visit for her Mom. It says; "One of these days will never come because Mom has passed away.

With Mother's Day and Father's Day coming up, the best gift you could ever give is your presence. But if this is not possible, send them several prepaid calling cards so they can keep in touch with you and their grandchildren more often than maybe their budget will allow.

One of my favorites is "Grandma Knows Best But No One Ever Listens!". The author is Mary McBride. Lots of advice for Grandmas with a lot of humor.

It would make a great gift for a new Grandma-to-be or Grandma's gift for Mother's Day.

With Mother's Day right around the corner I thought I would send a tip that I like to use. We live several hours away from the closest relative so we need something easy to send.

You could give her homemade coupons for vacuuming, dusting, doing dishes, a spa night (you run the bath, put in bath beads, light candles, play music etc). Anything that your mother does that she doesn't have to do anytime she presents one of the coupons that you make her.

Tell her to give you a list of 5-10 things she would like, then pick one. Anything homemade also wins points.

Hi Amanda,
My Mom isn't young anymore, but neither am I! She has just about everything I can think of. I got a cardboard box, wrapped it for Mother's Day and filled it with special cookies, snacks and things she wouldn't buy for herself, but I know she loves AND I made a special card to tell her how much I love her and am so glad she is my Mom.

Love and respect are what Mother's Day is about.
