Top 10 Mother's Day Ideas
Breakfast In Bed
If she would love nothing more than to catch a few more zzzZ’s and wake up to a gourmet meal in bed (or, you know, a bowl of cereal), then treat her to breakfast in bed! Add a freshly picked flower, bugs removed, for an extra touch of pizzazz.
Let the kids make mom cards. Homemade gifts from the heart are the best kind, after all!
If it is a nice day, make some lunch for mom and get out in the fresh air for a picnic! Bonus points if you pick a scenic spot or a place that holds special meaning. Don’t forget the blanket and sunscreen!
Kid-Drawn Family Portraits
Have your kids draw your family portrait. Your family may receive a wild make-over in the pictures, but mom will love it no matter what!
Even if you can’t send mom out to a luxurious day at the spa, you can give her the gift of relaxation at home. Treat mom to a foot massage, a bubble bath, and a quiet place to relax. The kids could even make a list of services and let mom pick her favorites! She may skip the manicures from the kids, but she is sure to love being pampered by her favorite people.
Quiet Time for Mom
Never downplay the bliss of a couple of uninterrupted hours of peace for mom. Spend some quality time with the kids, letting mom read, sleep, or do whatever she wants!
Clean the House
You may very well be the one that keeps the house in tip-top shape, but if mom is oftentimes cleaning up around the house, surprise her by making it sparkle for her special day.
Fine Dining Experience
Create a special meal for mom with an elegant table setting. Use a white tablecloth, cloth napkins, and the fanciest tableware you can find. Put some flowers and a candle on the table, dress up, and practice your best table manners. It doesn’t matter if you eat filet and lobster or PB&J; the experience will mean the world to her.
Not sure how to celebrate mom? Ask her! Let her pick some activities or make special requests for the day. Then you know exactly what she would like - that’s a win-win!
Family Photo Session
Treat mom and the kiddos to a photo shoot at home. They can be sweet, serious, sassy or silly - she will cherish them all for years to come! You can even print her favorite pictures and frame them.
