Celebrating Mother’s Day on a Budget

by Shea Homes Arizona on May 7, 2015


By now most of us know that the key to Mom’s heart isn’t always a pricey gift. More often than not there are other ways we can honor our Moms that mean so much more than 15 minutes spent in a department store.  Here are a few tips and ideas to get you started.

First, figure out what makes your mom feel special and loved. A good place to start is thinking about how she likes to celebrate, encourage and show you love.

Does she always write long notes in her cards or leave a long voicemail on your birthday? Chances are, caring words mean a lot to her and maybe a handwritten letter would send her over the moon. If you’re not sure what to write or how to start, here are some tips for writing a great heartfelt letter to Mom.

Does she love to linger and chat or give gifts that include spending lots of time together? If quality time together is how she chooses to show love, then she probably would love for you to give her the gift of your time. Here are some ideas you can try: find an item on her bucket list you can cross off together, schedule a spa day together, try out a new restaurant together, or pick out a book to read and get coffee to talk about it when you finish.

Remember when you were a kid and your mom was always thrilled when you brought her little drawings and crafts because you made them for her? Keep in mind she is still the same mom today. Whether you get a more traditional gift this year or try something new, your mom is sure to love anything with a little thought and effort behind it.
