Celebrate Mother’s Day this year by getting creative! Show you love and appreciate the moms in your life with thoughtful gestures and gifts. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Is your wife or mom an animal lover? Maybe she’s passionate about the arts. Show that you know what she finds important with a donation to a charity that she’d love. It’s a very thoughtful way to express your love.

Have your kids put their hands in paint and make a handprint t-shirt. It’ll be something mom will cherish forever as her kids grow.

Have a scavenger hunt that leads to a picnic. Leave clues around the house leading her outside to a lovely picnic lunch you and kids have prepared.

Does your mom love flowers? Or wine? Or chocolate? Sign her up for a membership to a club that’ll mail her what she loves every month.

Encourage the kids to make a “love book” where they write down why they love mom. Or have them write poems and frame them.

Is your mom out of this world? Name a star after her! The International Star Registry let’s you do just that!

If your wife is a technophobe set up all her gadgets for her today so she’ll be ready to go when she feels like updating her ipod or loading pictures.
