10 Mother’s Day Ideas that Won’t Break the Bank!

Seriously. Whether she gave birth to you, adopted you, or just loved you like a daughter or son, May 8th is the time to celebrate the women in your life who have mothered you. We have lots of ideas:

  1. Make her a meal (and do the dishes).
  2. Give her flowers — hanging baskets last a long time and are on sale.
  3. Jewelry is almost always a hit. And you can make it at the Tacoma Art Museum May 8 during the Mother’s Day Brunch at the museum. Tickets include museum admission and a jewelry-making workshop headed by a local artist!
  4. Make her a card, and share your love with words.
  5. Frame a photo that will make her smile.
  6. Do something she needs done off her “to-do list.” Or hire someone who can!
  7. Take her for a walk or hike (hold her hand).
  8. Buy her something sweet, like The Cookie at Metropolitan Market!
  9. Buy her a FitBit, Kindle, or something else she always buys for other people. If she already has a device, load a book or song onto it. Mom’s are cool, too.
  10. Give her a hug and simply say “thanks.”
