Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples – this is a great time to teach children how to show love and gratitude to others – and Mom is the perfect place to start!

1) A framed photo 1

A framed photo is a personal, sweet gift that you can customize to fit your mom’s personality. Pick an inexpensive frame at the craft store and use paint, beads and other accessories to make it your own.

2) Cashmere scarf
Everyone loves a bit of luxury and moms are no exception. Cashmere is soft to the touch and it’s also one of those things that Mom probably wouldn’t buy for herself.

3) Personalized jewelry
You can make your own token of appreciation, or look online to have pros make it for you. You can get it personalized or do it on your own at a jewelry shop.

4) Custom mug1
Make Mom feel special with her own hand-painted mug. She will remember this gift for ages to come as she sips on her hot bevy.

5) Upscale looking handbag
Your mom will love this gift; few things beat a new handbag. She might not normally buy such a thing for herself so spoil her with something she’ll love

6) A day out
When was the last time your mom got a pedicure? Take her to the nail salon for a bit of pampering, then out to lunch for some one-on-one time.

7) Framed notes1
You want to let Mom know how much she means to you, but you know your Valentine’s Day card will only end up misplaced. Frame your notes and let her put them on display. A heartfelt letter is even more personal with your touch added to it.
