All moms love to be appreciated.  Be it just a little note, an “I love you Mama” or even a gift, I love receiving these little tokens of gratitude from my own kids.  I realize now that I need to do more of these things for my own mom… especially since we live in different cities.  I always want to show my mom how much I love her.  I just tend to procrastinate and then not have enough time to prepare.

My Mom loves cards.  She sends my kids cards for every major holiday. Every Valentines Day, Easter, Halloween and Thanksgiving when I was growing up, my mom would have a card for me waiting on our kitchen table.  When I became a camp counselor at summer camp, I knew I could expect a card in the mail from my mom every week.   Cards mean a lot to my mom.  She gives them frequently and treasures every single card she receives.

I am not the best at sending cards.  In fact..gulp… I throw cards away.  To say the least, my mom doesn’t like this.

My mom is an amazing, selfless and strong woman. This year, I plan to show my mom how much she means to me, not just on Mother’s Day, but all throughout the year.    And I’m doing it with cards.

My plan:

Get a Mother’s Day Present…Now

My mom needs relaxation.  She always thinks of me, my sister and my kids, but doesn’t always find the time to do stuff for herself. While at Walmart this past week, I checked out the One-Stop Shop display by American Greetings.American-Greetings-One-Stop-ShopNot only was I able to find a card for my mom’s Mother’s Day present, but I also bought lotion and lip balm to give my mom some spa time at home and a purple gift bag-my mom’s favorite color.  Best-Moms-Day-giftI’m also including a candle as well as a gift certificate for a massage. Gift-Bag-Best-Moms-Day

Do you procrastinate like me?  Order a gift for your mom, NOW.  Along with a card, some other awesome gift ideas are:

  • Jewelry with children (or grandchildren’s) birthstones
  • Subscription Box present – You know how much I love Stitch Fix! There is also Blue Apron or Ipsy.  The list of possibilities for subscription boxes are endless.
  • Hire a professional cleaner to clean your mom’s home
  • Flower delivery – Always awesome!
  • New case for her iphone or ipad with grandchildren’s photos on it
  • Quality water bottle to stay hydrated (this is a great present here in AZ!)

Put major holidays in my cell phone

I always have good intentions, I just forget.  That’s why I will set a notification to alert me one week prior to each holiday.  This will give me enough time to get a card and pop it in the mail.

Holidays I am logging in my phone for the remainder of 2015 are:

May 10: Mother’s Day, June 21: Father’s Day (need to get my dad at least one card!), My Parent’s Anniversary and September 13: Grandparents Day (so I can remind my kids).

Stock up on Note Cards

Sometimes I like to get notes… just because.  My mom does too. Now I will have some pretty note cards for whenever I want to write to my mom.


This is the year I plan to rectify myself as a the forgetful daughter.

  1. I am also terrible about giving cards and I throw away cards – yikes! I love your tips and these will help me get back on track. American Greetings always has such great cards, too. I think I’ll stop by and pick up a few today! #client

    1. I honestly don’t think there is anything wrong with throwing away cards… especially if you’ve given them a good home for a few weeks displayed on your mantle and then you recycle them. Your old cards can go to create many new and useful items! (At least this will be my argument from here on out when I get in trouble for throwing away an older card)

  2. Great ideas! I always send my mom flowers and a card because she always said although the flowers may die, I’ll always tuck one inside (the card)…awwww!

    1. That’s a sweet idea on how to keep flowers you receive. That may just give me an incentive to keep more cards.
