Unconventional Gifts for Your Mom this Mother's Day
May 05, 2022
We can’t stress enough how excited we are for Mother’s Day! It’s just around the corner and we know that you are probably already preparing the best day that your mom can only imagine in her wildest dreams. It’s been a long time since you’ve done something special for her so you’d want this day to be extraordinary. Since moving out of home, you haven’t stayed in touch with your mom everyday because of your busy schedule. You haven’t been seeing her for the longest time and you don’t even know what haircut she sports now. Your older sibling has also moved out to marry the love of her life. Your younger brother is in college on the other side of the country. Your mother has been left to her own devices, because your father passed on about two years ago. Your life has changed completely but it doesn’t change the fact that your mother is your mother. She carried you in her womb for nine months, endured six to eight hours in the labor room, and took care of you for the next 18 years of your life. Yet you somehow drift apart because of this new life that you are trying to build as an adult. There’s still more time to catch up. There are more years to build new memories for new stories to share at the dinner table. You don’t even have to live under the same roof again for a renewed relationship. You just have to commit time and make sure you are aware of what happens in your mother’s life. May 8 this year is the perfect opportunity to patch things up and rebuild what has been lost. One of our suggestions is to go home and clean the garage together. It’s unconventional, rather silly and funny to suggest, but imagine the clutter you’d clean and the memories that it will bring up. You’d reminisce about the good old days with the family, how you used to bond before, the things you kept and the memories behind them. So first things first, fly a ticket back home. Surprise your mom and suggest to clean the garage. Go through every piece you fund together and share stories that you’ve probably never told each other. Decide what you should keep, sell, donate, or throw away. After you’ve piled everything up, clean the garage and give your mom the gift of space and convenience through installing smart storage solutions. Here are three products from FlexiMounts that you may install to maximize the space in the garage.
