Mother's Day 2014 Freebies, Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is a long-celebrated tradition where moms in the United States are honored and remembered by their children for the contributions and self-sacrifice that moms make in our lives.


In the U.S, Mother's Day is always celebrated the second week in May which was made an official American national holiday by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914.  So if you are asking, "When is Mother's Day in 2014?"  Mother's Day in 2014 falls on Sunday, May 11, 2014.  

Gift for Mom who doesn't have a cell phone:


One viewer offered this gift idea for the mom who does not use a cell phone.  Buy a pre-paid cell phone with a camera.  Add photos of the children and/or grandchildren to the phone.  That way mom will always keep the phone charged and with her  to show off the pictures.

 



Gift Ideas For Younger Children To Give On Mother's Day:



For younger children, Mother's Day often means crayon drawings or hand-made arts and crafts for mom. Sometimes accompanied by a well-intentioned (but novice) attempt at making breakfast in bed for mom. 
When drawing a Mother's Day card, kids could list all the things mom does for them that makes them happy.
 

Older kids can always make sugar cookies, shape them into a heart or flower, and decorate the cookies for mom.
