Another Mother’s Day has come and gone and hopefully you remembered to honor your mother or mother in law with a special card, gift or bouquet of flowers. These are busy and stressful times and no one could fault you for letting this May holiday go by without remembering each and every special mother in your life. However, if you traditionally honored more than your mother or mother in law on this special day and this year it just slipped your mind to pay homage to all the special Moms in your life,you can still let all those special Moms know how dear they are to you. This article will offer several simple Mother’s Day gift ideas for all those amazing Moms that have touched your life, but that you didn’t get a chance to acknowledge on the actual holiday.
A Phone Call. Don’t let embarrassment keep you from placing a phone call to that wonderful Mom the week after Mother’s Day. Pick up the phone and tell that person that you are sincerely sorry for not seeing or talking to them on Mother’s Day but that you hope they enjoyed their day. The first few minutes of the phone call may be a bit uncomfortable if this is the first year you didn’t shower that Mom with attention on Mother’s Day, but that will quickly dissipate once you realize how happy that special lady is to hear from you and the conversation quickly shifts into comparing stories of both of your Mother’s Day celebrations.
A Non Mother’s Day Card Expressing Your Feelings. Pick up a greeting card that simply shares your love and admiration for that special Mother that tells them how you feel about them every day of the year, not just on Mother’s Day. Your recipient will surely be touched by the fact that you have chosen to still send a beautiful card this year, and the gesture will soothe any hurt feelings caused by your omission.
Take That Special Mom Out To Lunch Or Dinner The Week After Mother’s Day. Apologize for missing the actual day and let her know that you would still like to honor her with a relaxed and enjoyable meal at the place of her choosing. That special lady may actually enjoy having her Mother’s Day festivities spread out during the week of the holiday. You just may start a new tradition that brings you both very happy memories for years to come!
An Unexpected Visit. Drop in on that special Mother for a surprise visit. You can bring a small bouquet of flowers for her and a few cups of specialty coffee or a nice bottle of wine. Better yet, bringing along some takeout or homemade muffins or cookies will enable you both to enjoy a nice visit without that special Mom having to worry about refreshments.
Don’t let the fact that you are a few days late keep you from honoring that special Mom in your life! Take the time today to let her know how special and important she is to you every day of the year.
