9 Thoughtful Gift Ideas that Won't Cost a Dime

1. Create a coupon book
             Create a coupon book just for mom.  This is a great idea for little ones.  Be sure to include coupons for free hugs because sometimes Mom just needs a hug.
2. Relaxing Bath
             Run a nice, warm bath for mom.  Bubbles to the max, if she likes.  A couple drops of her vanilla to scent her bath and a drop or two of baby oil to leave her skin feeling silky smooth.
3. Breakfast in Bed
           I am pretty lucky as hubby serves me breakfast in bed practically every Sunday morn.  This Mother's Day is a great day to treat mom to breakfast in bed.  A nice mix of her favorite breakfast items, some fresh fruit, perhaps a breakfast casserole and her favorite beverage.  Don't forget to clean up the kitchen.  After all it's Mother's Day and it's HER day.
4. Shhh... Don't Wake Mom
           Mom's sure to appreciate a little extra rest on her special day.  Pop in a DVD for the kiddos and let mom sleep in today.
5. Hand over the Remote
           NBA Playoffs are in full swing but today is mom's day so let her have reign over the tv just this one day.  Watch her favorite movie with her or let her catch up on some of those DVR recordings. 
6. Spruce up the Mom-mobile
           Mom's ride gets an extra workout.  She's in charge of shuttling kids to and fro and she's got little time to wipe up that icky, sticky candy residue stuck to the side of the rear window near the car seat.  Maybe you can find the source of that lingering odor in mom's car.   
7. Super clean the house
          Three simple chores sure to put a smile on mom's face: make the bed, vacuum the carpet and sweep the kitchen floor.  Trust me mom will notice and if you spray a little air freshener or light a candle she'll have to do a double take when she enters the house.
8. Laundry Free Day
           Seems like I am doing laundry every single day of the week so a day of no laundry would be an ideal gift for this busy mom.  Just one day sans loading, drying, folding, hanging up, oh the thought makes my heart flutter.  Oh, if the clothes could make it off the floor and into the laundry basket.  OMG!!! What a day!  What a day that'd be!
9. A Family Play Day
          Spring is here and what better way to celebrate Mom and the glory of Spring than with a day of play.  Visit your favorite park and snap a few pics of Mom against a backdrop of the beautiful colors of Spring.  Check out an outdoors game kit from your local park and challenge the kids to a game of volleyball.  Grill a few hot dogs and kick back and watch the sunset.
These are just a few fab FREE gift ideas for Mother's day.
