Before any one writes anything negative or mean on here I just want to say what a great mum you have and what a beautiful daughter you are 💜
Write her a letter or invite her to visit for a few days and pamper her at your home. Paint her nails, give her a blouse you have that will look great on her, give her a kitchen facial or hair treatment... you could make her some bath bombs, skin cream, body scrub. you could bake something. You could frame a couple photos of you 2.over the years....
Maybe you and the kids could make her a thank you collage/artwork with all the things you love about her on it?
Make or buy her a card and write her a thank you letter. Make a chocolate or lolly bouquet. Pinterest has a heap of thank you gift ideas that you can make. If your Mum lives close by you could make up a book of vouchers for her...for things like mowing her yard, dinner at your place, picnic in the park, home massage or pedicure etc!
Get a bunch of sheets from the op shop (just single flat sheets) or big bits of cardboard and some paint. Then paint on them "Thanks Mum" and some cute stuff like hearts and flowers and stuff. Find places she frequently passes and hang them up for the world to see. You don't have to say any names on the signs. Then tell her to "look for a sign of how grateful I (you, obvs) am!"
Or make a list of all the things she's done for you that you're grateful for and send it to her via snail mail. Don't pre-warn her it's coming, it makes the surprise so much nicer.
