Mothers day gift ideas that are completely free!
Isn’t Mothers Day the best??? It’s one of my favorite days of the year. I love being showered by my kids and husband with thoughtful gifts and notes. I love celebrating all moms out there for the love and work they do every day of their lives. Being a mom is without a doubt the most difficult, yet most beautiful thing I have ever done. It is my favorite title and the thing that brings the absolute most joy into my life. Because of this special job we all want to show our moms that we appreciate everything they have done for us. And you know what! Gifts do not need to cost any money! I believe that some of the best gifts are free! The most important thing with gift giving is that it comes from the heart. Check out this list of Free Mothers Day Gifts.
Free Mothers Day Gifts
1. Write a Sweet Note
Write your mother a sweet note to tell her what you love and admire about her. Let her know the impact she has made on your life. You could make a card by hand, just use lined paper, or buy a pack of cards from the dollar store.
My love language is words of affirmation, and nothing means more to me than receiving a kind and genuine note of love. This is my favorite gift ever to receive!
2. A Bouquet of Fresh Flowers
Give your mom a bouquet of fresh, spring flowers! You could pick flowers from your own yard, or find some wildflowers. Put your flowers in a mason jar or tin can, tie a pretty ribbon around it, and you have a beautiful gift!
I had a friend pick sunflowers for me off the side of the highway and it brightened my day so much! Plus, it didn’t cost her a thing!
3. Make Her Dinner
Your mom would love a break from cooking! Why not offer to make her dinner?? If she refuses, make it anyway! You could invite her over to your house for a nice dinner together or bring it to her home. Make sure to include a few of her favorite foods!
4. Mom and Daughter Book Club
Does your mom love to read? Invite her to have a book club, just the two of you!
Check out two copies of the same book from your local public library. Tell her you will both read the book and get together every week to discuss it. She will love having a mini book club with her daughter (or son!). A good book club always includes treats (at least for me they do…. ;) )!
5. DIY Hand Sugar Scrub
Give your mom some pampering with a homemade Hand Sugar Scrub! All you need to do is mix 1/2 cup coconut oil with 1 cup white sugar. Add a few drops of essential oil (I love lavender oil!). Mix it all together and you’ve made your own sugar scrub! Put it in a mason jar, tie a cute bow around it and you have the perfect gift!
6. Make a Top Ten List
Show your mom some extra love and attention with a Top Ten List! This is easy, just list the Top Ten things you love about your mom. Be sure to use some cute scrapbook paper or fancy fonts to give the list a little extra flare.
7. Favorite Memories E-Mail
Send mom an e-mail with a few pictures of the favorite memories you have together. Explain to her why those moments are so special to you.
You could even make it a little more fancy with a video montage, complete with pictures and music. This is something your mom could watch over and over again. It’s sure to bring a few tears!
8. Weed Her Flowerbeds
When spring comes, so do the weeds (unfortunately!). Give your mom the gift of service by weeding her flowerbeds. Moms deserve a little break every now and then!
Don’t ask for her permission to do this! Just show up one day, and start weeding!
9. Homemade Cookies
Does your mom have a favorite cookie or treat? Make it for her! My dad loves homemade snicker doodle cookies, so we make those for him a lot. Try to think of a yummy treat your mom would enjoy. Remember to wrap it up in some saran wrap and a pretty bow.
10. Wash Her Car
Maybe surprise mom with a car wash. Show up at her house one day ready to wash her car.
You can even go the extra mile by dusting and vacuuming the inside.
11. Gift of Time
What better way to show your mom that you care than to spend special one on one time together. Invite your mom to do something just the two of you. This could be by going on a walk, playing a game, doing a craft, or attending a free community event.
12. Give Her a Pedicure
Give your mom a pedicure! Bring your nail polish over to moms house and paint her toes and fingernails. She will love having the extra bonding girl time.
13. Make a Quote Jar
Does your mom enjoy motivational quotes? Cut out a bunch of your favorite inspirational quotes and put them in a mason jar. Tell her she can pull out a quote each day to help her feel loved and inspired.
If you’re feeling crafty, give the jar some cute decorations!
14. Crafty Gift
Do you like to craft? Find an easy craft you could make for mom. This might be a decoration for her home, an accessory to wear, or something else you think she will enjoy. Try to only use materials you already own!
15. Be There for Her
Take the entire day off from other commitments and just be there for your mom. Spend the entire day with her. Help her around the house, share inside jokes, and show her you care making her your priority for a day.
