10 Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day

Looking for ways to celebrate that amazing mother in your life? Here are 10 ways to celebrate Mother’s Day:

 

1. Breakfast in Bed

On a day devoted to celebrating mothers, make sure you start it off right by showing her from the moment she wakes up how much you love her. Serving her breakfast in bed is an easy way to set the mood for the rest of the day. 

 

2. Host a Mom “Show and Tell”

Have each member of the family gather an item that reminds them of mom and tell stories and memories about her. For example, a child might grab a stuffed animal that their mom bought them for their birthday. 

 

3. Help Mom with the To-Do List

Moms labor selflessly every day to do the tasks and million little details that keep the family functioning smoothly. Today is an opportunity to give back by helping to wash the dishes, fold the laundry, and clean up the house.

 

4. Maker her a Handmade Card

More than the flowers, the chocolate, the balloons, more impactful than any physical things are words of love and encouragement. Write what you appreciate about your mom and specific ways that she has impacted your life and watch her smile light up.

 

5. An Outing of Mom’s Choice

Take time off from regular work, school, and chores to do a fun activity of mom’s choice. A picnic, trip to the zoo, outing to a local museum, hike in the mountains – the possibilities are endless! 

 

6. Create a Coupon book 

Not only should the family help mom out with her immediate to-do list today, but a coupon book to help with future chores is a great gift. For example:

  1. This coupon is good for: Unloading the dishwasher.
  2. This coupon is good for: Vacuuming the stairs.
  3. This coupon is good for 2 hours of quiet time.
  4. This coupon is good for: Control of the TV.

 

7. Photo Album Surprise

Create a photo album of your favorite memories with mom. These can include baby photos, special moments with mom, beautiful pictures of her, and silly photos too.

 

8. Cook Mom’s Favorite Meal

Mom has been cooking for the family for years, so a great way to make her feel loved is to cook her favorite meal. 

 

9. Spa Day for Mom

Craft a Spa Day for mom by lighting some candles, playing soft music, giving her an exfoliating face mask and a shoulder massage. In a day full of celebration and noise, set aside some time for her to relax and be still without interruption or distraction.

 

10. Movie Night and Cuddle Time

A great way to finish off the day is to gather the entire family for cuddles, snacks, and a movie night.

 

No matter what you end up doing today, make sure your mom feels valued, loved, and seen for all the ways that she pours out to her family each day.
