Whatever you decide to do for your mom this Mother's Day, remember to say "Thank you."

10 Free or Low Cost Things You Can Do For Mom on Mother’s Day

Vincent Schilling

We’ve been doing a lot of fun and lighthearted lists here at ICTMN and at first, I thought of doing a similar list for moms. But considering they had to put up with our antics, bad attitudes, skinned knees, trips to the doctor requiring stiches, broken bones or being sent home from school—I thought they deserved something on the nice side of things.

I also didn’t think we needed too much help in buying stuff for mom, because flowers and breakfast are pretty much standard fare on Mother’s Day.

So instead of listing 10 gifts for mom that you could have found with a Google search, here are 10 things you may not have thought to do—and they don’t necessarily cost a whole lot. But in the “it’s the thought that counts” department—these gestures could be worth a million bucks. Besides, these women had to raise us, they deserve good thoughts that count.

Create a Coupon Book

If you take a bit of time, this could be a nice and thoughtful gesture to show mom she can always call on you for help if she needs it. Staple a stack of slips of paper together and make each slip worth a valuable task. Examples are: This coupon good for one lawn mowed… or good for raking the leaves or good for a lunch at your favorite restaurant. Be creative.
