Ideas For Mom On Her Day

In this Friday Flop Shot we’re loving Mom. Sunday is Mother’s Day and I’d like to offer some thoughts and ideas of how to honor her.

Our family is comfortable moving dates around to accommodate schedules and practicality. We may not go out to eat Sunday so we can avoid the crowds. Meeting together at 4:00 pm Saturday would be a choice we could agree on.

And we might not do a meal event at all but opt for a celebration at ours or one of the kids homes and have some light snacks. But that’s us. Perhaps your family does a big Mother’s Day function.

Gift items run the gamut. A few ideas:

1. Make a hand-written card, not typed. We use colored paper and it’s become a tradition for most special occasions. It saves money over those high-priced store cards and your own words really personalize the message.

2. Go with the old standbys of a meal and/or flowers. Either is OK, but would you consider something more creative?

3. Book a winery tour, either a day trip or stay at a B&B overnight. Add a round of golf.

4. Take a golf trip to a resort you’ve not previously visited. Make sure it has a spa and additional attractions besides the golf. I think every Mom would enjoy some serious spa time, being pampered head to toe! I know Linda does!

5. Select a gift item from the unlimited selection and prices. This is a golf blog however, so I’m going there. Fun golf items that Linda likes are the beautiful colored golf gloves offered by Footjoy-FJ Spectrum Women in 12 colors and the Calloway Women’s Opticolor Gloves in 3 colors and she really likes the Calloway Chrome Soft Truvis Yellow Golf Balls. I kind of like the red since it almost looks hot pink. Those yellow and black are easy to see though.

Happy Mother’s Day! Mom we really appreciate all you do. Love you!

See you on #1 tee, loving your Mom… Sam
