Let’s face it: life gets busy, especially for moms. This
Mother’s Day let’s turn honey-do lists into the honey-done lists and knock out
those lingering household projects for the special moms in our life.
While flowers, chocolate, and cards will always be a special tradition for Mother’s Day, we’ve put together ten ways the DIY’er can honor Mom.
While you’re outside there are plenty of outdoor chores that can be done for Mother’s Day like cleaning gutters, mowing, weeding, mulching, and trimming the shrubs.
Get fresh ingredients and make lunch or dinner
for her. Don’t forget to have her favorite types of food. If the mom in your
life appreciates spending time doing things with you, cook a meal together.
Use your shop vac to detail the inside of her car. You can also clean the outside with soap, a bucket, and a sponge. If you’re looking to go the extra mile, make sure to fill the tank and change the oil for her as well.
Since you’re the DIY type, put together shelving, storage bins, or mounts for a long-term organization solution.
Good suggestions for the mom on the go would be crock pots, blenders, Kitchenaid mixer, iRobot sweepers, and Keurig coffee maker. Have the new appliance set up and ready-to-use.
Pick her favorite spot in the yard and turn it into a nature sanctuary by adding a bird bath, bird feeders, and a bird house. Plant a variety of color with her favorite plants and flowers. Set up a bench, hammock, or patio set for her to sit and enjoy quiet sounds of nature in her own backyard.
When she’s rushing to put dinner on the table, she needs good, sharp knives to chop quickly and throw together a meal.
The common areas in the house get a lot of traffic and love. This helps her keep up with the house and gets rid of spots like scuff marks, finger prints, and dirt.
Safety is always top priority for moms.
Make her a custom bracelet with hex-nuts from your local Do it Best hardware store.
Every mom is different, but with these suggestions, you can give her the break every mom needs or do something that’s totally unexpected. Even the small things make a big difference and will fill her Mother’s Day with happiness!
