Helping your child choose the right Mother’s Day gift will depend on the age of your child. The older they are, the responsibility they can handle and it’s up to you to help them figure it all out. So, here are some Mother’s Day gift from children ideas.
Since your baby cannot do anything from themselves, you cannot expect them to do or make anything for mum. The best gift from children this age is to include their name in the card and make sure that mum gets to spend quality time with her family. That said, dad should step up and take over things like diaper duty to give mum a much-needed break.
Now that your child is older, they have a bit more dexterity but you still don’t want them playing around with sharp objects. So, it’s time for finger painting and similar crafts. You can always cut out some paper flowers and have your child decorate them, for example. You can also buy some chocolates (individually wrapped) and stick them to the middle of each flower for mum to enjoy. This is a great gift from children this age because it gives them just enough responsibility that they can handle.
From young children
Young children learn to read and write which means that they can write a very special note for mum. You might like to lend a hand as far as spelling goes but you should also let them write whatever is on their hearts since this will be the most sincere. This special gift from children is in fact their love and heartfelt thanks for all mum’s love and help. You can also let them give you hand and deliver the fresh bouquet of flowers or a delicious chocolate hamper on your behalf. Even if you bought the Mother’s Day hamper, they will experience great joy in presenting.
From older children
Older children might have some pocket money saved up and they may insist on spending a certain amount on mum. You can help them shop for a thoughtful pamper hamper or chocolate basket online or even some fresh flowers. Make sure you do so when mum is not around! When you place the order, make sure that you include only your child’s name so that mum knows they bought it themselves.
Remember, the best gift from children to their mothers is love and affection. Not to mention a helping hand around the house. If you plan on cooking, you could have your child or children help with the clean up, for example. Mum will really appreciate the day off.
