A Teen's Guide to Giving a Great Mother's Day Gift

If you are like me, teens or young adults may be in abundance at your house.  Now that they are older and might have a j-o-b, you may be able to get a Mother's Day gift. Wouldn't that be nice?




But how do you let them know exactly what you want?  I've put together a quick guide just for them. You can thank me later. ;)



Hey there, I'm Stacie and I'm a mom of teens, so I know a thing or two about Mother's Day.  Mom's big day is coming and you want to give her something nice, right?  I have a few ideas that can help you out in this area. Ready?



A Teen's Guide to Giving a Great Mother's Day Gift




*What is your mom's favorite color?  Start there.  An accessory like a scarf or earrings in her favorite shade would always be appreciated.


*Is your mom into makeup?  Gift cards to Ulta or Sephora are sure to make her squeal.


*Flowers and candy will always brighten her day, just make sure that the flowers are not brown or old looking.


*My favorite gifts to receive for Mother's Day are gift cards.  My kids often buy gift cards to my favorite stores like H&M.  Got siblings? You can all pitch in to give her a bigger gift card.


*If all else fails, cash inside a nice card can easily get the job done.  Trust me, she know's just what to do with it!



If you are short on cash, try these Mother's Day gift ideas



*Make mom a hand-made card.  Check out Pinterest for some snazzy ideas.  Remember, It's the thought that counts.


*Give mom the day off and offer to clean the house for her.  Let her rest while you and ask dad to help you cook dinner.  She'll love that!


*Think outside the box. One year my kids made a funny picture collage from Walgreen's that was actually free (or really cheap), and I absolutely loved it!


Hopefully these tips are helpful to ya!

  8. I have trained my kids very well. They know Mommy loves cards, Target and anything with lips on it. Oh and flowers are a big NO.

  9. The best gifts aren't the expensive ones. All you got to do as you have said is think outside the box.
