Mother’s Day 2019 is right around the corner! While you might already have a special gift or outing planned for your own mother, there’s another wonderful woman that we shouldn’t forget: grandma!
Here are a few ideas to help you (and your children!) celebrate grandma this Mother’s Day:
A Coveted Gift
Every grandmother has that “one thing” that she’s always wanted. Is it a Kitchen Aid mixer in her favorite color? A first edition Jane Austen novel? The final part to finish her classic car restoration?
For Mother’s Day 2019, use your best sleuthing skills to discover what it could be that your grandmother really, truly wants to have as a present.
You are typically always safe buying a nice card, a springtime bouquet, and some chocolates as a gift for her. But this year, you should go above and beyond.
Check Off the “Honey Do” List
We all have them. And whether or not grandpa is diligently working his way down the list or not, there are always one or two neglected requests that never seem to be completed.
So, for Mother’s Day 2019, complete them.
You could hire someone to powerwash the driveway because it’s been bothering your grandmother for months. Maybe set up Netflix on her iPad like she’s been trying to do for ages. Or finally take her car to the shop to investigate that strange clicking sound or for a long delayed detailing.
One of the best things you can do for your grandmother is simply to make her life easier.
So yes, on top of flowers and chocolates and jewelry, this year, be sure to go out of your way to make sure that she knows just how much you care about her.
You know what your grandmother (or mom, if you’re helping your little ones) likes best. So, whether you choose to treat her to a nice lunch, an evening at the theater, or a manicure and pedicure session with all the bells and whistles, just be sure that you will be with her. If time and distance make being together impossible, schedule some FaceTime or a time for Hangouts. For grandmas who love their landline, arrange a time for your whole family to pass the phone and declare your love.
Of course, it’s always nice to receive a gift, but life can get so busy that it’s important to remember that sometimes the most important gift is simply the presence of loved ones.
