Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

They wipe away our tears, attend our recitals or games, and when we get older, moms are always there to support us through thick and thin.

Although mothers deserve to be appreciated everyday of the year with al that they do, Mother’s Day gives us a chance to go all-out and make mom feel really special.

When you are part of the military family, however, distances can get in the way of being there for mom on this special day.

But have no fear, there are many different ways you can still share this special day with mom even when you can’t be together.

Video Chat Date

Feel like you’re together on mom’s special day even when thousands of miles apart by carving out some time for a video chat date. Make it an extra special occasion by getting dressed up for the date, planning an activity while video chatting or just really giving your mom some quality one-on-one time.
