Mother’s Day is the one holiday where the very best gifts are priceless. It’s time spent with those that matter most, with all the fun that goes along with it. I’m lucky in that my mom lives literally a block away. We’ll be able to gather together and celebrate each other in person. And the kids can shower their grandma with in person hugs and kisses.
But it hasn’t always been that way, and so I understand how hard it can be to be so far. Even when she may live far away, though, it’s decidedly true that home is where your mom is.
Should your mom happen to be overseas this year, and your Mother’s Day gift comes with a price, you can still make sure that she’ll be able to purchase a gift that she’ll love for herself. Xoom, a PayPal service, powers international payments to friends and family in more than 40 countries around the world. Today, the primarily cash-based system of sending money abroad can be time-consuming, insecure and expensive, but Xoom offers a secure, safe and fast alternative. Xoom also provides peace of mind as you can track each payment via SMS alerts and receive a text message when the money is received.
As a mom to 3, sticking to a budget and making sure we’re set financially each month is one of my most important duties. So when I need to transfer funds, I want to make sure it’s safe and secure. Because the last thing I want to do is worry about where my money may have gone when I would rather spend time enjoying my kids and family.
This year, I truly believe that Home is Where Your Mom Is, wherever she may be. As such, I made a quick Home is Where Your Mom Is free printable as part of our Mother’s Day gift.

The kids then built a house out of craft sticks. We settled on just drawing a door and windows with a black marker for a more classic feel, but add as much color and embellishments to your craft stick house as you want!
