Mother's Day, a day where we celebrate motherhood whether it's our mom, our aunt, our grandmother, or even our dad.
Every year, most people flock to the flower shops and Hallmark for their Mother's Day gifts. Those with a little more money to spend might take advantage of Macy's free shipping to mail their moms a new piece of jewelry or a new designer handbag.
But after years of buying the same generic gifts, ever wonder if there's a better way to show appreciation for one of the most important women in your life?
Ashton Kutcher may have just given you the best idea yet. The 37 year-old actor recently teamed up with Houzz to remodel the basement of his childhood home for his mom, Diane. He wanted to surprise his mom as a way of thanking her for all that she has done for him throughout the years. Most celebrities might just buy a multi-million dollar mansion for their moms, but this guy went above and beyond to make his mom happy.
To get Diane out of their home in Homestead, Iowa, the star told her to stay with him and his fiancee, Mila Kunis, in Los Angeles to take care of their newborn daughter, Wyatt. For 27 days, Kutcher coordinated the entire home improvement project from Los Angeles with his stepdad, Mark, through Houzz, an online design site in which he is an investor of.
Upon seeing the brand new basement, Diane tears up and exclaims, "Oh, this is beautiful!" Kutcher had transformed the basement into a cozier living area and made more display space for his mom's antique collection and her homemade salsa cans.
This is how the basement looked beforehand:
This is how it looked afterwards:
Now, not many of us have the resources to transform our mom's homes into something as extravagant as this. But that shouldn't stop us from going the extra mile to show our queens we love them.
