If you are a college student living in an apartment in Blacksburg, VA don’t forget that Mother’s Day is this weekend! Do you need a fast, easy and inexpensive Mother’s Day gift idea? Here are a few:
Pick up one of those "[your university name here] Mom" t-shirts or sweatshirts from the campus bookstore. Let her be proud of you and show everyone she knows where you're going to school!
Take a picture of yourself holding a big piece of paper or poster saying "THANKS!" in front of your school. You can put it on the front of a homemade card or put it in a frame.
Make a "coupon" redeemable for some quality time together when you're not in school. It can be good for a cup of coffee, lunch, dinner, or dessert (all with you treating, of course!).
Make a "coupon" good for a homemade dinner you can cook for her when you get home. Even if you're just learning to cook or are limited in the kitchen, there are plenty of easy recipes for college students.
Go for an old classic: send her flowers. You can find an online seller or contact a local florist in your mom's hometown.
Make a donation to your mom's favorite charity. It will show you really are doing good while in school.
Hand make a really thoughtful, sincere card. Most moms would rather have a genuine, handmade gift than another generic necklace anyway.
Last, but not least: if you're celebrating Mother's Day, don't forget to call!
