Wonderful Ways to Spend Mother's Day

Blog Categories

It’s time to start planning a special day for your mother to show her just how much you appreciate all that she does for you. While you can buy gifts (or make your own), it’s the personal touches that let her know just how much you love her. Here are some great ideas for making Mother’s Day special.

Staycation

Give mom a home holiday this Mother’s Day weekend and make sure she doesn’t have to do a thing. Take care of all her chores, cook the meals and do any shopping that needs to be done. Make sure the house is clean, the laundry is done and the yard has had a spring clean.

Make her staycation extra special with sleep-ins, hot baths, a good book and some fun family activities that you know she will enjoy. Give your mom a Mother’s Day ‘staycation’ that’s not only a well-deserved break, but also helps you to realize just how much she does for you.

Movie Night

Mom gets to pick the flick this time and you can augment the experience by building a pillow fort, making popcorn or taking your movie experience outside if you have a projector. You can also organize a family outing to the cinema and a picnic to round out the evening.

Acting Out

Does your mum like music or the theater? Gather your friends and family members and put on a show for your mom. Write a song, do a play, perform magic tricks or do a standup comedy act that will be fun for the whole family.

And the Oscar goes to…

Create a tribute video where friends and family members all say what they love best about your mom. You can ask distant friends and relatives to do a video phone-in or send videos they make on their smart phones. Compile the clips into a mom love-fest that will make her day.

Gardening

Does your mom love her garden? Plant a new flower bed or get some really colorful spring flowers that you can plant for a splash of color. You can also plant her a new vegetable garden or create a raised garden bed that will make it easier for her to enjoy her favorite hobby.

Class Act

Enroll yourself and your mom in a class you know she will love. Whether it’s painting, flamenco dancing, pottery or skydiving, do something together that you know she will love.

Recipe Rewards

Does your mom love cooking? Make her a personalized cook book that has her favorite recipes from all of her friends and family members. Get each person to write out their recipe and a little note to her and compile them into a book. You can scrapbook these recipes or go online to find a printer that makes recipe books to order. Include photos of friends and family eating some of your favorite holiday meals.

Your mom works so hard all year round, so be sure to show your appreciation on Mother’s Day and make a fun, relaxing day that she is sure to enjoy.
