Mother’s Day Ideas
Show your mother some extra love on this special day.
Our mothers are the most important people in our lives. Without them we wouldn’t be here, and they do everything they can for us to make sure all our dreams and goals are accomplished. While our mothers deserve all the love in the world, we aren’t always the best at showing them how much we truly appreciate them. Mother’s Day, however, is the day that all changes. On this day, we dedicate all 24 hours to our mother and do whatever it takes to make sure they feel happy, loved, and appreciated, no matter what else is going on in our lives. Whether you’re taking your mother out for a tasty meal, staying home and cooking her favorite dish, or showering her with love through flowers and gifts, there’s tons of ways to make your mother feel special on this day. This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 14th, so don’t forget to show your mother a little extra love! Whether you’re unsure of what to buy your mother or you need some ideas on what to do during the day, check out some of our Mother’s Day Ideas to ensure your mom has a perfect day no matter what.
MOTHER’S DAY GIFTS
When it comes to trying to make your mother smile on a special day, you can never go wrong with flowers. Head over to your local florist and pick up a bouquet of her favorite flowers – and maybe even grab a box of chocolate to go along with it! Or, if your mother loves flowers but you’d like to get her something that will last a little longer, opt for buying seeds of her favorite flower so she can grow some in pots herself. Going off of that, you can even get her some hanging flower baskets for the porch or flowers already grown that she can just transfer into the ground. If you’re going to go the seed route, this personalized flowerpot is the perfect sidekick to go with it!
We all know the saying “diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” and more often than not this saying is completely accurate! Jewelry is often a go-to when it comes to buying a present for a special female in your life, but the downside is that it’s often pretty expensive. This Mother’s Day, consider buying your mother some Paparazzi Jewelry! This site offers beautiful, trendy, and chic jewelry, and each piece is only $5! You truly can’t go wrong with a deal like that, and no matter which item you choose your mother is guaranteed to love it. Just a tip – pieces are added to the site every day but they do sell out fast, so if you see something you like don’t hesitate to purchase it right away!
Getting something personalized for your mother is a sure fire way to make her feel special. Does she love tea or coffee? Then get her a mug. Does she have a lot of jewelry? Then pick out a pretty jewelry box. Think of something that you know your mother would get a lot of use out of and have it personalized to make it extra special.
Essential Oils & Potions
We all live crazy, stressful lives, and your mother is no exception to that! Sometimes your mother just needs to sit back, relax, and calm her body and mind, and the perfect way to do that is with some essential oils, lotions, and potions. St. Larry’s is a site that offers handmade products that are pure and natural, handcrafted from the highest quality ingredients. It gets better though – the products are all cruelty free! The best way to show your mom some love is to give her the greatest gift of all – relaxation – so you’d be crazy not to show her some Mother’s Day love with one of these great products.
Money / Gift Cards
While we may love our mothers, when it comes down to it, sometimes we just may not know what the best gift is for them. Or, on the other hand, sometimes we might either forget or wait until the last minute to find them a gift they’ll really love. If either of these are the case for you, give her money or a gift card to her favorite store. Gift cards are great because you can get one for her favorite store or restaurant, and since she’d be picking out the gift herself you know it’ll definitely be something she likes. If this is the route you’re taking, but would like to make it a little more personal, make her a homemade card to give along with it.
THINGS TO DO
Go Out to Eat
Mother’s Day is all about making your mother feel special and appreciated, so why not treat her to a special meal? Bring her to her favorite spot to get pancakes for breakfast, the restaurant that makes her favorite sandwich for lunch, or that fancy Italian food place you save for special occasions. Offer to pay for the meal so she doesn’t have to, and enjoy a meal that doesn’t involve her spending hours in the kitchen on her special day.
Cook for Her
On the flipside of wanting to take your mother out for a special meal on Mother’s Day, almost everyone else in the world has the same idea. On holidays like this, a lot of restaurants get packed, don’t accept reservations, or provide a limited menu – a menu that might not even have any dishes your mother enjoys on it. If you want to avoid the crowds but still allow your mother to feel special, then pick her favorite meal and cook it for her yourself! You don’t have to be a five star chef; it’s the thought that counts (but you may want to have a backup plan such as a frozen pizza ready just incase!)
Take Her Shopping
It’s no secret that many of us girls love to go shopping – some of us may even label ourselves as shopaholics! Taking your mother shopping on Mother’s Day and offering to pay for whatever it is she likes is the perfect way to make her feel special. An added bonus – if you either waited until the last minute to buy her a gift or just didn’t know what she would like, here’s your chance to make up for that!
Spend the Day in Nature
If we’re lucky, Mother’s Day will bless us with some sunny skies and beautiful weather. If this is the case, why not spend the day outside enjoying the weather? Spending the day in nature under the sun’s warming rays has profound affects on our mood and spirits, so it’s the perfect way to spend a special day with your mother. Go to the beach, go on a walk around the neighborhood, or even just spend the day in your backyard listening to music and eating lunch outside.
Have a Movie Marathon
We all feel a little lazy sometimes, and we don’t always want to leave the house. If your mother isn’t in the mood to get dressed up in order to go somewhere, then spend the day indoors watching a marathon of her favorite movies. This is also a perfect plan if the weather outside isn’t so nice. Pop some popcorn, get your favorite candy, and offer your mom some company as she watches her favorite movies (and probably recites every line too!)
