Cards, flowers and breakfast in bed are staples of Mother’s Day. But if you’re looking for something mom will really treasure all year long, here are five gift ideas that last far beyond the holiday.
Mother's Day Gifts That Keep On Giving
Keeping a family organized is a tough task, and options for planners, calendars and organizers galore are everywhere. But it’s not the fancy or expensive calendar that Mom really wants — what she needs is a reminder of why she works so hard all year long. Companies like Shutterfly and Mixbook allow you to customize a calendar just for her.
If a personalized calendar isn't an option, you could gift a faith-based calendar that offers inspirational Bible verses and reminders about God's love daily.
