Mother’s Day is in one week. Here are some out-of-the-box gift ideas to show your Mom just how much you love her:

•    Prepare her favorite dinner. Arrange the table extra special with rose petals and a few wrapped gifts.
•    Take her on a scavenger hunt to a few of her favorite places- give her clues to the next place inside a gift box.
•    Buy all the necessities for a pedicure/foot wash and spoil her with a spa night at home (or schedule a professional spa out)
•    If you have kids, make a homemade card with them. (Write a poem or the “Top 10 reasons why I love you”). Buy poster-board for $.79 and fold in half to make a big impression as a card.
•    Write a favorite “memories of mom” book or create a video. (for print books: blurb.com, lulu.com, snapfish.com)
•    Print out a few digital photos and create a scrapbook, put them in a frame, or photo calendar
•    Monogram her initials onto something: jewelry, purse, stationary, etc.
•    Buy a gift-certificate to her favorite clothing store
•    Visit a museum or concert together
•    (Spouse) Clean the house while she is out or hire a maid to do it all.
•    (Spouse) Give her a coupon to keep the kids one evening.
•    (Spouse) Make your wife sleep in one morning and get the kids ready- take them to school.
•    Give her a magazine subscription
•    Give her an I-tunes Gift card
•    Put together an emergency box (fill with things like lotion, relaxing CD’s, movie tickets, chocolate, etc.)
•    Buy favorite specialty items: favorite candle, perfume, boutique cosmetics, shampoos, magazine, special chocolate, etc.
•    Frame a family portrait (blow it up to an 8×10)
•    Frame a really nice picture of Mom
•    Buy Customized Stamps (use stamps.com) to create a special stamp (a photo of you together, children, wedding, baby, etc.)
•    Plan a surprise picnic to local park with good scenery
