Some great gift ideas for Mom on Mother's Day:

  • Make a photo book with pictures of you and the family, or
  • Make dinner for your Mom. Ok, so you can't cook? Buy dinner at a restaurant that has a great to-go menu and get instructions on how to reheat it. Lola's Cafe in Poughkeepsie, Adams Fairacre Farms
  • Help her out around the house. Inside with laundry or cleaning, outside with yard work, this is a great inexpensive project. Want to spend a few $$? Go to the store and pick up flowers in her favorite color and plant them or get a pre-made hanging basket. She will think of you every time she sees the flowers.
  • Offer to clean her car, both inside and out. Don't forget to do the interior windows and vacuum it for her too. Want to have someone else do the detailing? In Poughkeepsie try, X-Treme Detailing, they will come to  you. In Kingston, go to Hoffman Car Wash on 9W, for about $40, you can get the interior and exterior washed, they even clean the car mats.
  • When you can't think of anything else, offer to leave her alone the entire day. Sometimes, Mom's just want a day of peace and quiet.
