(StatePoint) With Mother’s Day around the corner, you may be thinking of ways to show your appreciation for mom.

If you’re on a budget, you’re in luck. The discount experts at Dollar General are sharing helpful advice.

• Breakfast in Bed: Every mom deserves some time to relax. Why not begin Mother’s Day by pampering her with breakfast in bed? Don’t forget to make the meal complete with a card and a cup of coffee.

• Watch it Grow: Spend Mother’s Day afternoon making memories with Mom and see your love grow all spring and summer. Pick out a beautiful new planter with gardening tools, soil and seeds. Work together to plant something beautiful. As the plants grow, she will be reminded of you!

• Bake and Make:  Update and brighten Mom’s kitchen without over-spending. At a discount retailer such as Dollar General, colorful new oven mitts and kitchen towels are available for $1 dollar each. Look for her favorite colors or the ones that best complement her kitchen.

Give Mom an opportunity to use her new gifts by packaging them together with an easy cupcake or brownie mix and kitchen utensils. Baking together is a great way to spend quality time while providing yummy treats to celebrate the big day!

• Tell the Birds:  Get Mom a themed birdhouse with bird seeds, or consider making a birdhouse together as an afternoon arts and crafts project. Either way, you can help her find the best place in the yard to enjoy the colorful and beautiful birds that will soon be frequent visitors.  They’ll be singing all season!

Everything from lawn and garden items to birdhouses, as well as great recipes and mixes to celebrate Mom this Mother’s Day can be found at more than 11,000 Dollar General stores or online at www.DollarGeneral.com.

This Mother’s Day, show Mom how much you care and make memories you can cherish for years to come.
