May is an amazing month. It is the begging of summer, kids are out for vacations, you can finally get ready for that trip, but one of the days that we love the most is May 14: Mother’s day. Mothers all around the world are special in their own way, they are the most amazing beings and they always deserve the best.
In Adopt-A-Contractor.com we love to celebrate each holiday in our own special way. This day is very important because we acknowledge the hard work that mothers, grandmothers, wives and aunts make everyday. Family is everything for us so we came up with some easy but amazing ideas to make moms day even more special. You can also check out our ideas on Pinterest in case you need an emergency gift.
3 easy DIY gifts for mom
Involve your kids. The gifts that mom most appreciate are the ones made by the kids, you can do a paint session with them and write some nice words so you can surprise her with a breakfast in bed with beautiful homemade cards.
Make your own mugs. Making personalized mugs is easier than you think; first of all buy a mug without any text or image, you can get them at the Dollar Store. The next step is to buy some sharpies or paint and start writing your message; once the paint is dry bake the mug at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. You can make many mugs and after you are done add some flowers to give to mom.
Create your own photo album. For this project you can either select old pictures or make a day of it and snap some Polaroids, you can add personalized messages that mom will love or add paintings from the kids, she will be thrilled.
You can go out or make a special day at home!
Every time we have a big holiday chaos occurs. Traffic goes crazy, restaurants are always full and you will get millions of people in shopping malls or touristic places. If you are thinking about going out that day make your reservations with anticipation because most places fill up and you don’t wanna keep mom waiting for hours, you can find a cool new spot or just stick with her traditional favorite places.
If you decide to stay in, maybe you should consider putting those cooking abilities to work. You can find recipes so easy now that you have no excuse to surprise mom with some amazing breakfast on bed or a beautiful brunch. These are our top 3 recipes for mom:
