AMERICAN GREETINGS OFFERS MOTHER'S DAY TIPS

 AMERICAN GREETINGS OFFERS MOTHER'S DAY TIPS
 CLEVELAND, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- It's often the little things


mothers do that mean so much. Whether it's taking the time to fix dinner after a hectic day at the office, proudly displaying the children's art work on the refrigerator or knowing exactly the right words to say at the right time, a mother's role in the family is very special.
 This Mother's Day, May 10, a little creativity and an extra measure of thoughtfulness can go a long way toward making Mom feel like a queen. According to Brian Grant of American Greetings, it's not necessary to "break the bank" to show your gratitude in a big way. "Gifts from the heart and simple tokens of appreciation are often appreciated most of all," Grant said. He offered the following tips for Mother's Day:
 -- Indulge Mom with breakfast in bed. Try your hand at something exotic like Crepes Suzette or Eggs Benedict. Surprise her with fresh- squeezed orange juice or gourmet coffee served in a new Mother's Day mug.
 -- Most mothers are sentimental about their families. Why not give yours a keepsake to add to her collection of bronzed baby shoes, finger painting "masterpieces," report cards and graduation announcements? Pick out your favorite snapshot of the two of you, and mount it in a pretty ceramic Mother's Day frame. American Greetings offers two styles -- each priced at under $6.
 -- Add a "personal touch" to Mom's gift. Tuck a lace sachet inside the gift box or pin a pastel ceramic pin to a new designer scarf.
 -- Compose an original poem just for Mom. Write it on an erasable memo board, hang it on the kitchen wall and wait for Mom to discover it.
 -- Prepare Mom a full-course gourmet dinner...Don't forget the candlelight! Charming glass swan votive holders add an elegant touch to the table and Mom can reuse them for other special occasions.
 -- Take a little time to make Mom's gift look extra special. American Greetings offers fashionable Mother's Day gift bags, dramatic rose bows and floral gift wrap printed on recycled paper.
 -- Don't forget the card! Is Mom a comedian? Then she'll love the humorous Just My Style(R) line focusing on the lighter side of motherhood. If she's a nature enthusiast, she'll appreciate a recycled card. If Mom's a music lover, surprise her with a musical card! American Greetings also offers three-dimensional pop-outs, fancy satin finish cards and special cards for Hispanic and African- American mothers.
 Don't forget Grandma on Mother's Day. Slip an I.O.U. for a favorite activity the two of you can enjoy inside a special commemorative mug for "Grandmother."
