Flowers: Very traditional, but always appreciated. This classic gift is sure to please your mom and make her feel special. Good places to get flowers would be Trader Joes or Sprouts, or if you’re looking for an actual arrangement, call Alan’s Flowers at 928-445-5131.
Household Chores: We’re sure if you’re short on cash, mom will understand, but that doesn’t mean you have to do nothing. Many of the women in our office have mentioned how much they appreciate extra help around the house as a Mother’s Day gift. Yard work, cleaning, doing the dishes, doing the laundry, and the list could go on and on because we all know how much our mother’s do to keep things running smoothly. Try taking over some of these tasks this weekend as a gift to your mom. She will love the extra help and the extra time she’ll then have to relax.
Gift Card: Don’t underestimate the good gift that is a gift card. When mom receives this, she gets a gift card to her favorite store and is able to buy whatever she needs or desires. This may seem less personal, but we promise you it’ll be well received when paired with some flowers, or another personal gift, or even on its own with a great card!
We hope this article gave you some good ideas on how to celebrate Mother’s Day in Prescott this weekend and again, Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there! We hope you have an amazing day!
