1. Give Mom gifts from the heart with kids’ DIY projects at Walmart May Market.

Nothing says “I love you Mom” like a DIY gift from the heart. Walmart is celebrating moms the entire month of May during which kids can make three different free gifts for Mom at 32 Walmart Supercenter locations. The Mother’s May Market has all the supplies kids will need to make the following gifts for Mom:

  • Egg carton flowers
  • Popsicle stick frame
  • Fingerprint magnets

If you’re in Georgia, Texas, Minnesota, Arkansas, Tennessee, or Oklahoma, you’re in the Mother’s Day sweet spot. Check the event listings to find out exactly where a Mother’s May Market is happening near you.

 

2. Indulge your mom on Mother’s Day with a monthly wine subscription.

How about a wine subscription for Mom this year? A Winc subscription is super flexible and you don’t have to commit to it forever. Simply text them at (855) 282-5829 or email support@winc.com to cancel your account whenever! Winc also offers a satisfaction guarantee, so if your mom doesn’t care for a flavor, reach out to their customer service. For your first month’s order:

  • Most of the wines start at $13 per bottle and range to $35 per bottle.
  • You get $20 off your first month (automatically applied during checkout)
  • First month’s grand total: $27
