Dear Dish-It: No Money for Mother’s Day

Dear Dish-It,

I love my mom with all my heart but I have no money so I can’t get her a really nice gift for Mother’s Day. I feel really bad; what can I do?

Broke Kid

Dear BK,

Sounds like you and your mom have a wonderful relationship – I’m sure that as long as she knows that you love and support her, she won’t care whether or not you can afford to buy her a fancy present for Mother’s Day.

Fab & Free

The best gift – your love – doesn’t cost anything. There are lots of other ways to show your mom how much you care without having to spend a cent:

  • Make dinner for her one day – or even just a sweet treat for dessert!
  • Offer to babysit your little brother or sister so that she can have the afternoon off.
  • Make her a card that tells her how much you love and appreciate her.
  • Cook breakfast in bed and surprise her with it on Mother’s Day.
  • Clean your room – or even the whole house – without waiting for her to ask you to do it.
  • Make a date to have a stay-at-home movie night – just you and her!

Have Your Say

Got any good advice for Broke Kid? Leave your comment below!

Thanks,

Dear Dish it
