Making Mom Feel Like a Queen

For those of you who haven't even thought about Mothers Day yet (it's Sunday!), here are a few ideas to help. You can get your mom:

-a manicure or pedicure gift certificate (maybe you should go with her and get one yourself!)

-a relaxation set, complete with tea, bubble bath, a soothing CD, and a scented candle (or Bath and Body Works has some fun aromatherapy sets available this time of year)

-a special "Mom" movie (shhhh! Don't tell my mom, but this is what I'm getting her!)

-a long, appreciative letter

For those of us whose moms have passed away, this may be a good time to make a donation in her name to a charity she would have supported. Or you may want to honor another mother in your life--a friend celebrating her first Mothers Day as the mom of a new baby or a person who has been like a mother to you.

Happy Mothers Day, everyone!
