5 Ways to Show Mom Your Appreciation

Are you tired of browsing through the same old Mother’s Day cards at Target, feeling like they just don’t capture the depth of your appreciation for your mom? While traditional gifts like flowers and chocolates are lovely, maybe you're yearning for something more personal and meaningful. At IMPACT, we understand the importance of expressing love and gratitude in unique ways, especially when it comes to honoring the women who've shaped our lives. This Mother’s Day, we’re here to inspire you with five heartfelt gestures that will truly show your mom how much she means to you.

  1. Pay Attention to Her Needs and Desires: Start by tuning into your mom's desires and wishes. Take note of any hints she drops throughout the year about things she'd like or experiences she wants to have. Whether it's a practical gift she's been eyeing or simply spending quality time together, showing that you've been listening and paying attention speaks volumes. Remember, it's the thoughtfulness behind the gesture that truly matters.

  2. Plan a Meaningful Activity Together: Instead of focusing solely on material gifts, consider planning a meaningful activity or outing that you can enjoy together. Whether it's a leisurely walk in the park, a cooking class, a spa day, or a creative workshop, spending quality time with your mom creates lasting memories and strengthens your bond. Choose an activity that aligns with her interests and passions, and use this opportunity to connect on a deeper level while creating new experiences together.

  3. Write a Heartfelt Letter or Create a Personalized Video: While store-bought cards are nice, there's something undeniably special about receiving a handwritten letter or a personalized video message. Set aside some time to pour your heart out on paper, expressing your gratitude, recounting cherished memories, and sharing your love for your mom. Alternatively, create a heartfelt video where you speak from the heart and express your appreciation in your own words. Your mom will treasure these personalized gestures for years to come.

  4. Craft an IMPACT book: Elevate your Mother's Day gift to new heights with an IMPACT Book, a personalized compilation of memories and messages from the people who matter most to your mom. Invite friends, family members, and loved ones to contribute their heartfelt thoughts and memories, creating a beautiful keepsake that celebrates your mom's impact on their lives. With options ranging from full-sized books to mini versions, you can find the perfect fit to honor your mom's significance.

*Note: Orders for IMPACT Books must be placed by Wednesday, April 24th, 2024, to ensure delivery by Mother's Day, which is on May 12th, 2024.
  1. Show Appreciation Year-Round: While Mother's Day is a special occasion to honor our moms, let's not forget to show our appreciation year-round. Make a commitment to incorporate small gestures of love and appreciation into your daily life, whether it's scheduling regular phone calls, planning surprise visits, or sending thoughtful texts and messages. Remember, it's the consistent acts of love and kindness that truly make a difference in our relationships.


This Mother's Day, let's redefine the way we celebrate and honor the women who've shaped our lives. Instead of settling for generic gifts and clichéd cards, let's express our love and appreciation in meaningful and personalized ways. Whether it's through meaningful activities, heartfelt letters, or personalized gifts like an IMPACT book, let's show our moms just how much they mean to us.

Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing moms out there—may your day be filled with love, joy, and heartfelt gestures of appreciation.

*Note: If you have a complex relationship with your mother, know that it's okay to honor her in ways that align with your boundaries and emotional well-being. We're here to support you, whatever your journey may be.
