If your mother is away on duty or deployed for the holiday, why not make her a box filled with her favorite goodies? You can use a mailing box if you have one, or you can make one yourself and decorate it with her favorite decorations. The first thing to do is find a box that you want to send - this will determine the amount of items you can include. Then think of the theme you want to go with for example all pink - and then you will hunt for all pink items to include. Decorate it with loving sayings and meaningful pictures that you know she will love. Check out these Mothers
