Enjoy a Budget-Friendly Mother’s Day | St. Johns Bank

Can you believe that Mother’s Day is right around the corner? It seems like this year is flying by, as May has already arrived.

If May 8 has snuck up on you, don’t worry! Our team at St. Johns Bank has some ideas for how you can throw your mom the ultimate Mother’s Day celebration without going into debt.

Celebrating Mom

Are you looking for different ways to celebrate your mom this Mother’s Day without breaking the bank? Take a look at our Mother’s Day ideas that are out of the box but not out of the budget!

First, you can tell your mom how much you love her by creating an “I Love You” jar. Decorate a mason jar—and inside, you can write all the things you love about her, such as her smile, her cooking, how she is always there to support you, on slips of paper. The great thing about this jar is that it is something she can keep and look at any time over the years to bring a smile to her face.

Second, does your mom enjoy doing things for others? Why not consider volunteering together this Mother’s Day? Not only is volunteering a kind act, but both the giver and the recipient benefit. And there is nothing better than giving back to your community as a family!

Finally, you can consider giving your mom the day off. However, this has to be a true day off, not a case where her “to-do list” simply waits until the next day.

When giving your mom the day off, take care of those to-dos. Conquer her task list for the day, including cooking for the family, tackling the laundry and cleaning the house.

Many times we give mom a day to herself, but it ends up creating more work for the next day. By giving her the day off and completing her chores for the day, you are giving her a real gift by giving her time for herself!
