Send her flowers with a card saying something along the lines that everything you did to help us could not be expressed in a card?

@VintageSparkle:  I think your Mom has a great idea. You don’t have to get a special Thanksgiving card.  Just write a note saying that Thanksgiving does remind you that you have so much to be grateful for, and one of those things is having her in your life. Summarize what she did for you and thank her profusely.

You need not make any explanation or reference to not being more effusive in your thank- you note.

She will be pleasantly surprised and pleased to receive a separate letter.

I like flowers (or a bottle of wine, or a coffee date) and a card or verbal thanks!

What about just sending her another note (different style than the first) saying, “DUH, we meant to thank you for all your extraordinary help that day etc etc etc!” ?

@VintageSparkle:  I would just phone her and say something like, “I was just writing my thank you cards and I realized that I wanted to give you a call for being so incredibly helpful during the wedding.  It really means a lot.”

If you don’t feel like this is enough you could bake her cookies, or bring her flowers, etc.  But I think your heartfelt thanks is enough.
