Mothers sacrifice much of their time and devote an immeasurable amount of energy toward their families. Because of this, Mother’s Day is a day to honor your mother and thank her for all that she has done for you.  Mark your calendars because Mother’s Day is not a day to forget. This year, Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 13.

On Mother’s Day, the universe flips. Typically, our mothers are busy spoiling us. So what can we do for her for a change? A lot of teenagers and husbands aren’t exactly sure what to get the most important women in their life on Mother’s Day.

There are many things that your mother or grandmother will appreciate. First, your mother will simply appreciate you remembering that it’s Mother’s Day, so whether you have an extravagant gift or not, she will appreciate the fact that you took the time to think about her.

As for physical gifts, mothers tend to appreciate flowers, or even chocolates. Right here in Delphi we have a local Flower Shoppe, and it would be quick and easy to get your mother some flowers and chocolates. You could consider a necklace, or a bracelet, jewelry of any kind. You may even consider something your mother has said she has wanted/needed in recent months. Mothers also tend to appreciate gift cards to their favorite restaurants or even a Visa gift card.

Often, moms are easily pleased with simple, thoughtful gifts. A simple card can mean the world to any mother. You may want to treat your mother to a cup of coffee and sit and talk for awhile, simply catch up. Cook her a homemade dinner or take her out to her out to eat. Consider giving your mom the day off of all cooking and housework, along with planning time together to do something special.

The ultimate thing a mother wants is your time and your appreciation. Whatever you decide to do, big or small, just know, it’s the thought and attitude that counts.
