Moms will appreciate these unique, savings bond themed gift ideas that are practical, useful, and may even provide an unexpected bit of excitement about the possibility of recovering a lost treasure.

SavingsBonds.com has announced two unique Mother’s Day gift ideas that will surely delight Moms this holiday. This year, skip the typical boring flowers and surprise Mom with a complimentary Savings Bond Inventory Report, along with the possibility of locating a lost treasure of savings bonds for her. Both of these gifts will cost less than $15.00.
Over $15 billion worth of savings bonds have reached final maturity and are no longer earning any interest. Many of them have been lost, stolen, destroyed, or likely forgotten about. There’s a chance that some of those bonds may be your Moms. It only takes a few minutes online, at the Lost Savings Bonds service, to start the hunt for a possible treasure of savings bonds that could create a wonderful, unexpected, financial surprise.
“I filled out the easy, online SavingsBonds.com lost bonds form for my Mom while she was sitting next to me," says Susan R., of Chicago, IL. “She wound up receiving over $4,100 worth of U.S. savings bonds that she didn’t even know existed. It was such a thrill for her. It was almost like she won the lottery.”
While Mom may have been the family Multi-task Master, she probably didn’t properly manage and organize her savings bonds. In the past, many owners, like Mom, stuffed paper bonds into shoe boxes, drawers, or safety deposit boxes, and didn’t monitor them. When they needed cash, they arbitrarily grabbed a bond(s) from the bottom of the stack. They didn’t know what the bonds were worth, if they were picking the correct one, or if they were cashing in at the right time. They were guessing and often making financial mistakes.
Over the past decade, SavingsBonds.com began offering a complimentary, easy to use, online calculator to help value, better organize and manage savings bond investments. Depending on the number of bonds, it takes only minutes to build a personalized, color-coded, helpful Inventory Report. The report clearly identifies important financial amounts, timing, and taxation issues that will help avoid common, costly mistakes, and provide a better understanding of how savings bonds work. There is even an option to print the report for Mom, which is a clever gift idea to put inside a Mother’s Day card.
Without proper financial information, Mom could make irreversible financial mistakes that could affect her tax bracket and possibly even her social security benefits. An Inventory Report will spell it out for her and give her a little peace of mind.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, Moms will appreciate these unique, savings bond themed gift ideas that are practical, useful, and may even provide an unexpected bit of excitement about the possibility of recovering a lost treasure.
