Looking for meaningful ways to show your mom or grandmother how much you care on Mother’s Day? When it comes to celebrating Mother’s Day with your mom or grandmother this year, you may want to explore different ways to make the day special, particularly if she’s in a senior living community or requires additional support.
For senior moms, there are many activities and gifts to choose from to help her feel loved, celebrated and appreciated. Here are some Mother’s Day gift ideas to show mom or grandma how much you care.
A photo of your family together makes a great gift for Mother’s Day. Frame a photo of the grandkids, make an entire album that your mom can proudly display on her coffee table or turn family pictures into a custom photo calendar that she can use all year long. You can also upgrade her photo game with a digital photo frame. Digital picture frames hold thousands of photos and can be updated remotely. You and other family members can share new pictures with your mom or grandmother in real-time throughout the year.
Give your mom or grandmother the gift of connectivity with a tablet device. With a tablet, your loved one gets all the benefits of a smartphone but with a larger screen. You can also pre-load the tablet with apps or games you think she will enjoy. Make sure you teach her how to use a video app so that she can easily connect with you and her grandchildren on a regular basis from her device.
A Monthly Subscription
What does your mom or grandmother love? A monthly subscription is the perfect way to continue gifting your loved one throughout the year. Some great subscription options for Mother’s Day include:
- Coffee or tea
A Day Out
Depending on her mobility, it can be fun to take mom or grandma out for a special day doing all the things she loves. This may include eating breakfast at her favorite restaurant, getting her nails done at the salon or enjoying ice cream with the grandkids at her favorite park. Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to get your mom out of the house while creating special memories together.
The perfect Mother’s Day gift will depend on your mom or grandma’s interests. For most senior moms, the very best gift you can give her is your time. If you live nearby, set up a day to have a meal with your mom. Make her favorite dish and bring it to her; or if she loves to cook, prepare it together. If your mom or grandma live in a senior living community, check out the community’s activity calendar for special Mother’s Day events or brunches that you can attend with her. If you can’t be there in person, send a card or set up a video call. Your mom or grandmother will feel special this Mother’s Day just knowing you are thinking about her.
