How well do you know the momma you’re celebrating? 


Some would love to have a gift to open others would love to have the gift of time spent together, yet others would appreciate acts of service.


If you know this, your gift will be so much more appreciated.


If you’re not sure what that means, it’s a concept called the 5 love languages outlined in a book by Gary Chapman.  In it he describes 5 ways people like to receive love.  His first book was written with romantic love in mind, but now he has a bunch more specific to relationships with your kids, your teens,and more like these.

The cliff notes version –


  1. Acts of Service – they like things done for them even just filling their gas tank

  2. Physical Touch – holding hands and hugging and of course sex, but we’re talking our moms here so, yuck, lol jk

  3. Words of Affirmation – telling them they’re appreciated or celebrated

  4. Quality Time – spending time with them

  5. Receiving Gifts – giving them stuff, though could be picked flowers or found seashells, doesn’t have to be monetary


Pair it with their hobby and you’ve got a winner.  I have broken the gift ideas down by hobby, but then added ideas from acts of service and time added in with the gifts to purchase.
