Does mom really do not want anything?

Most moms will tell you, "I do not need anything" - what possibly can or cannot be true - there are some things that moms value more than gold, and any of this thing is not tangible. Ask a mother with young kids when she got peaceful, uninterrupted full-night sleep, sleep in, or time for herself when she wanted or needed it. Would she put a price tag on that?

For whom is this article? Daughters, Sons, Husbands that have to organise in place of their young kids, Daughter-in-Law, Son-in-Law. No matter if you cannot spend money right now or you want to do something more, something SPECIAL. That's the place. Let's make the best Mother's Day, with no mone.

WHAT IS A PERFECT GIFT for Mother's Day with no money?

How do you make your mom feel special? Regardless of the age, most mothers’ wishes will fall into at least one of the following categories:

#1 – Do Something Together

Quality time together. A nice addition is when moms can share that hobby or interest with other family members. Does your mom have no hobbies? For sure, there is something she likes to do! Maybe she is a PRO in baking? Let her sit, and you do the work this time. Let her teach you to make her favourite cake. Sharing moments like that will not feel awkward, and you will have something delicious to eat!

Another idea would be to serve her a nice cup of tea or coffee and look through the photo albums she has. Chose one from your or her youth and let her tell you the stories behind those pictures – Easy way to bring favorite memories. You can create a digital photo collage for her too.

Do something in the garden, from BBQ to potting plant in her herb garden, that she waited for somebody to help her forever! Do not do her work, though 😉 .

Plan a movie night! Choose a family movie she loves or let her choose. Do you know her favorite movies, by the way? Bring popcorn or any tasty treat she adores.

It can turn into Family game night. Why not?

Is your mom sporty? Go for a family bike ride or walk. That makes things more comfortable if you are not up to constant talk.

#2 – Acknowledgment

All mom wants most is acknowledgement and appreciation for all she did. Most of those details go unnoticed. Like you, she wants her hard work to be noticed and value. Gratitude should be a daily habit, but especially on her events as birthday or Mother’s Day. 

Lack of appreciation creates a lot of resentments in moms. That added even more stress to everyday life. 

Mom, I don’t always take the time to tell you how much I am thankful for you and everything you have done. I love you.

#3 – Freedom!

The idea of “me time” and finally do what she wants, when she wants. One thing that you may want to specify is if she wants to be alone, with her friends, at home or outside. Every woman has her own preferences.

So what’re the options:

a. “Me time” as quiet time alone at home 

b. “Me time” outside the home, as it can be a constant reminder that there is something more to do.

#4 – A Day Free Of Duty

Moms handle a billion things every day. To get everything under control, she often is in a rush, giving up time for herself, feeling anxious about all the things, she feels responsible family, house, job, cleaning, cooking, washing, picking up, dropping off… a lot of things. Make her day task free. You can clean, cook and pick up her tasks. She still may mentally be connected to those duties. It’s why you may hear “Do it like this…” or “it’s not like that” from time to time, but it’s not her bad intention but a habit and deep feeling of responsibility.

Think about the top 5 things that stress her most and do them. You may finish your day more tired than usual, but use this time to see and appreciated all things she does DAILY for family.

For some parents, it seems weird to spend Mother’s or Father’s Day without kids. Given that children are the reason anybody is a parent. Lots of mom want to spend a nice day with their children.

Which options we have here:

a. Family outing where mom can decide what is the adventure of the day, where everybody gets along together and with the plan to make this day a valid gift for moms.Not the next chore 😉

b. Family time that mom doesn’t have to plan or do anything. She just wants to come along for the ride and expect everything ready. So plan the day ahead. Take her on a sentimental tour around the city. Where you can share memories of places and adventures, you had together. Visit the shop she was buying you candies every Wednesday. Listen to her stories. Make her the centre of your attention.

If you don’t want to get too sentimental or it’s just uncomfortable. Plan B – take her to visit some nice places around the city. Maybe some historical tour? Make it a fun day for mom.

#6 – To Be Pampered

They are two types of moms: one that they love to take care of themselves and moms that are not used to self-care or pampering. You can make an appointment for her to SPA, manicure or massage. If money is an issue, then DIY. Clean and prepare the bathroom or living room. Make it cosy: scented candles, set out her favourite magazines and her favourite music. You can give her a foot massage or back massage, make her nails (if you know or learn how). Give her space and time. Perhaps bring her a tea or favourite drink as she relaxes. Make her feel cared for and pampered.

#7 – Do Something New

What she always wanted to do but never had time? Maybe she wanted to visit another city, or have a walk on the beach, botanical garden or forest? Time in Nature may be what you need to connect. Has she mentioned learning anything new? Play a new card or board game? Play badminton the same as she was a girl? If you are creative, you may even not spend any money! To have some new ideas, ask others women what fun new things they have done recently. Surprise her. She’ll love it, especially if she likes adventures. 

Adventurous! That brings ideas. How about home karaoke night?
