can't afford to pay for this special service,
don't despair. You could do the cleaning for them
yourself as a present and take your older
children along as your helpers. It would be
"Mommy's Cleaning Service", and you
could make a
Gift Certificate like a professional service with
your phone number and have them confirm their
a background that your mom would like at one of

books, Journal, Dictionary, Book cover,
magnifying glasses, one of those little night
lights for the bed......you are only limited

NEW Tea Cup and Saucer, make sure to include some
special herbal teas. My mom had a
collection of beautiful tea cups and saucers, but
no two were the same. It made tea time or
having company much more fun. I always liked to
set the cups out for Mom, that way I could
see which one was my favorite. You would almost
never get the same tea cup. They were all
different colors, shapes and sizes. Mom would
also buy the really special sugar cubes with
designs on them. For some tea information and
links visit: Annie's Teatime Page
Ideas for the
children: You might want to
encourage the children to make their own greeting
cards. They are also a treasured memory and will
be put on the coffee table for the visitors to
look at. This is a way to teach them that it
isn't always an expensive gift that will touch
someone's heart. For some more ideas visit: Annie's Mother's Day
is a Great Photo House from Billy
Bear to print & make. It is a gift that can
for both Mom and Grandma!
T-shirt Printing - If you have an
artistic side, think up some designs that would mean
to Mom and have one printed on a t-shirt. If youre
better with words, try and think
of something meaningful you can have printed.
A New Gift Idea from Annie:
Mother's Day Bath Basket: You can make a Mother's Day
Bath Basket!! Just put
soaps, bubble bath, scented candles and a few other
things that your Mom likes
in a basket with a big bow on top. Of course you can put
more in it or less.
Just do what you feel is best for your own Mom. I'm sure
she will love whatever
you do for her!! Related Craft Idea Pages: Bath Salts for Mom & Bath Tea Bags

and joyfully sing of your righteousness."

Book or even a binder. Don't
forget to decorate the cover. You can use fabric or
stickers. Be Creative! Don't limit your
creativity. They have special pages now that you can
slide paper in and it will protect it. That
way you can type and print the pages on the computer.
Special fonts and graphics will make
it even more pretty.
forget to put some blank pages in it. This way you can
encourage your child to continue
the book you started for them and it can be a project you
can do together for the future.
You can also make a "Memory or Treasure Box".
Take a shoe box and cover it with wrapping
paper. Use letter or stickers on the top to include their
name and the year. This way they can
keep other treasure that won't fit in the "Memory
Book". Make sure you encourage them to
write what the treasure is and where they got it. It will
also help to teach them to become
a little more organized.
