Paint a Room for Mom

I made a gift certificate on my computer saying "I will paint the room of your choice" and gave it to my mother with a $25 Home Depot gift card for paint (the card even had paint brushes pictured on it). She loved it!

From Mel: Great combination of the gift card and the volunteer labor! You may be able to get the whole family in on a plan like this and accomplish some big jobs for Mom such as:

cleaning carpets

prepping the garden

washing all the windows

building something

organizing all her photos into books/slideshows

What would your mom appreciate help with? Add your thoughts below...
