Sees chocolates. A two-pound box, to be exact. For the last three years of my Mother’s life, I knew the drill. Forget Godiva, or Russell Stover’s, or Dove or Hersheys. Sees made her Queen for the Day, be it Mother’s Day, birthday or any occasion.
Not everyone has it so easy. If you’re stumped about what to buy your aging mother for Mother’s Day, you’re not alone. Today I polled professional staff and residents from Evergreen Court Retirement and Assisted Living Community, in Bellevue, Washington. I asked, “What are some great Mother’s Day gifts?”
Here they are, in no particular order:
2. homemade goodies (especially when you prepare their own recipes)
3. flowers (fresh or plants)
4. a cozy throw
5. framed pictures of family members
6. an electronic picture frame
8. stationery and postage
9. a mini-vacuum
Happy Shopping! Can you add to the list?
