Financial gifts can brighten anyone’s Mother’s Day

   It’s almost Mother’s Day. 
   This year, in addition to flowers or candy, why not make some financial gifts to your mother? And if you’re a mother yourself, you can do the same for your children.
   Here are a few possibilities:
   If your mother is still working, you could write her a check to help her fully fund her IRA for 2019.
    Many people can’t afford to “max out” on their IRAs each year, so any help you provide will be valuable. 
   One more suggestion: Introduce Mom to a financial advisor, if she doesn’t already have one.
   Now, if you’re a mother, you might consider some other valuable financial gifts for your children. You could, for example, contribute to a 529 plan, which can offer tax-advantaged savings for college. 
   Or, to get your children interested in investing, you could give them a few shares of stock. 
   To encourage their philanthropic interests, you might donate to a charity in their names.
   These types of gifts can help your loved ones move toward their financial goals – and even provide them with some valuable life lessons.
