      For the very young children, handprint letters are always a hit with
      mom and grandma’s. In between children can make photo frames and use
      handprints to cut a hole in for the photo or make a nicer wood frame
      if money allows. For the teens, a good weekend or day of housework
      and maybe nreakfast in bed would be a wonderful mother’s day gift.
      Possibly one good heart to heart over lunch served by the teen would
      be worth more than any gift ever thought of.
      To me it is more about time spent than the gift itself.

      Something
      like a lovingly cooked batch of cookies from my daughter would be
      worth more than thousands of dollars worth of storebought flowers or
      gifts.
      For the craftier children, you can make windchimes out of many
      different items. Anything that sounds pleasant when clanked together.
      You can also make a mobile for indoors out of little found items.
      Maybe a mobile with mini photos of the child through the years to
      hang in the office over mom’s desk or something?
      Burned discs of photos and slideshows are great ideas.

      I am thinking
      of putting together discs for each family member of my children’s
      photos over the last year for Christmas this year.
      Just remember to have fun with it and help the kids choose gifts that
      fit them and the mom 🙂
