8 Spring Clean Gift Ideas for Mom on Mothers Day
A great gift for Mom on Mother’s Day is spring cleaning. With a few cleaning supplies and elbow grease, you can spring clean your Mom’s house for her. This is a Mother’s Day gift that your Mom will not only appreciate but costs very little to give to her. Mother’s Day arrives right in time for a good spring cleaning.
1. Fix a Snack Tray and Drink as Mom’s Present
If your Mom is anything like many Moms, she’ll want to jump right in there and help you with this Mother’s Day gift. Set up a snack tray and drinks for Mom. Sit her on the couch and let her relax while you do all the work for her.
2. Give Mom a Movie to Watch as Part of the Gift
One way to get Mom to relax while you clean is to get her a movie. Pop the movie in and let her watch it while you clean the other rooms of the house. This will keep her occupied and be a nice part of the present for Mom.
3. Strip the Beds and Wash the Sheets First
Since it takes time for bed linens to wash and dry, start with the bedding first as part your gift for Mom. If she has spare sheets, you can let the bed air out a little, spritz with linen spray and then place the clean linens on it. Put the old sheets in the wash and let the machine do all the work while you spruce up the rest of the house.
4. Bathrooms Next for Mom’s Gift
Next, tackle the bathrooms. This is an area that’s not usually very pleasant to tackle. Just go ahead and get it over with first. Don’t forget to check and refill Mom’s drinks and snacks periodically. Even if she protests a little, you know she’s going to love a sparkling bathroom.
5. Surprise Mom with a Sparkling Kitchen
As part of Mom’s present, wash and put away the dishes. If cabinets have become disorganized, surprise Mom with arranging them back the way she had them. Remember this is Mom’s present for Mother’s Day, so don’t be too tempted to re-arrange the cabinets as you want them. Follow how she normally has them.
6. Tackle the Refrigerator
Take the food out of the refrigerator and place in a large cooler. Remove the refrigerator shelving and door shelving. Wash with a light mixture of vinegar and baking soda. Replace everything back in the way Mom normally likes her cold items.
7. Next up, Cabinets
Wipe down the fronts of cabinets and cabinet door handles. For wooden cabinets, use a small amount of wood furniture polish on a rag and polish up the cabinets. Mom’s gift for Mother’s Day will amaze her at how much newer her kitchen looks with the cabinets so well-cared for.

8. Dusting and Vacuuming
The final step for Mom’s gift is dusting and vacuuming. Save this for last. You Mom can enjoy the movie, snacks and drinks without noisy cleaning equipment bothering her. By the time you get to dusting and vacuuming, Mom should be done with or close to done with her movie. If the movie isn’t over, sit down for a break and watch it with her.
