TOP GIFT THIS YEAR: Write her a poem, frame it and gift it. ( order alternatively ready made one from Amazon)

    1. Make her photo book. Gather all the images that illustrate the best of her, print them, add some meaningful text, bind them and voila! Perfect mother’s day gift that costs nothing more than some photo paper and some printer ink. Alternatively, you may still gather the same best photos and get a book making inline service to do the printing and binding for you. Read more about this option here.
    2. Start taking photos of the meals that you cook based on your childhood memories (that is her recipes) , write the recipe (maybe add your own twist to it) and using the same methods as above, make a recipe book.
    3. Give her an experience. Your mom probably has enough material gifts, more than she needs by now so why not buy her an experience. A trip to Paris, a day at the spa, a manicure, a massage – something that she always dreamed of doing.
    4. A service voucher that she can use anytime during the year. Offer to be her personal assistant for a day or more, offer to sort out her garden or clean her oven or the whole kitchen if you wish, a foot massage, be her driver for a day, be her personal shopper, the possibilities are endless depending on your skills and abilities and it’ll cost you nothing but some of your valuable time. However, it’ll mean the world to her.
