Five Fun Ways You Can Make This Mother’s Day Special
by Carolyn Lee May 2, 2022
When it comes to treating mom on Mother’s Day, brunch, spa treatments, or tangible gifts are some ideas that immediately come to mind.
Mother’s Day is almost here, and while many of us have the perfect gift in mind for mom, we also want to ensure that she enjoys her day.
So, how do you want mom to spend her special day?
You already have a good idea of what she will love, and we’ve got a few ideas you could consider that she may also appreciate.
Use a talent she loves to create something memorable.
Do you remember how proudly your mother would show off your childhood drawings or how she praised your talents? Tap into your creativity and use it to create a unique gift for mom. Give mom a beautiful handwritten poem, sing to her, bake/cook her favourite food, or draw/paint her. If you plan to do a song, you can get other relatives to join in the fun by teaching it before Mother’s Day. Using your talents to make her feel valued is a gift she won’t forget easily, and she’ll love that you tried.
Recreate a fun memory.
Growing up, you’ve danced with your mother around the room, listened to her hum her favourite tunes, or cuddled with her to watch movies. She enjoyed those activities, so why not recreate one you all loved? Design a plan for Mother’s Day activities and use the latter part of the day for family fun. Put on some of her favourite music, invite her for a dance or impersonate her go-to dance moves. Set up a photo booth for funky family photos to ensure you capture fun moments. You can cool things down with a movie, karaoke, or game she enjoys.
Use your knowledge as a partner to gift her with a delightful experience.
Yes. Husbands, boyfriends, and partners can provide some Mother’s Day treats. Plan the activities with your children, suggest gifts mom may need, or create an atmosphere of relaxation before her special day. As her partner, you have insight into some of her secret desires. Let her enjoy a long, undisturbed bath the night before. Take over the chores on Saturday, so she can sleep in or be treated to breakfast in bed. Offer to wash her hair, clean her car, or fold the laundry. Some of the simplest gestures of love can put her in a great mood to enjoy Mother’s Day.
Drink to her.
What beverage does your mom love? If mom is into teas, invite her to high tea where she can enjoy her favourite tea and delicious sweet and savoury treats. You can treat her to her beloved brand of coffee if that’s what she prefers. Some moms enjoy a drink at the end of a long day or on the weekend, so you won’t go wrong selecting a premium brand for the wine, liquor, or spirits she likes. Older children can even join mom for a drink on Mother’s Day while regaling her with some of her favourite memories.
Contribute to a cause that is dear to her.
Mothers expect to be treated lovingly on Mother’s Day. So, buying her a tangible gift or treating her to an experience she will enjoy are non-negotiable. Take things up a notch by contributing to a cause/charity she passionately supports. Donating to her favourite charity is also a good idea. Does she love flowers and plants? Add to her garden by planting a flower or tree in honour of her.
Some of the best gifts come from the heart and being present with your mom is a gift she will treasure. We hope that these suggestions will resonate with you for Mother’s Day.
