GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) - Gift giving can be tough, especially for a holiday like Mother's Day. You want to give that special woman something she'll love and use, but without breaking the bank. Show how much you care with these great gift ideas:
Family scrap book: Take the time collecting old and recent pictures to create a family history scrap book. Mom will love and cherish it and it could even become a new family heirloom. You could even leave some empty pages at the end to add more memories. Want to step it up a notch? Schedule new family portraits to be taken and added to the family history scrap book.
Spa Day: Every woman loves being pampered. The Amway Grand has great Mother's Day spa packages starting at $164. This includes an overnight stay for two and many spa treatments. Make reservations here. If you're not looking to spend that much, try putting together a gift basket for mom with foot creams, face moisturizers, and other spa items.
Special vases: Flowers are a standard gift for Mother's Day. Put your gift into over drive by picking out a beautiful vase to go with your flowers and hand paint it. This is a great activity for the kids to do (you can even use plastic vases) and it will not only be a gorgeous vase but a memory to be cherished.
Framed memories: Mother's Day cards are easy to find, but make yours more personal this year. Write a personal note and frame it with a special picture. This will keep your kind words always in thought, instead of shoved in a drawer somewhere. It's something that can be hung up and always be a reminder of your special relationship.
