Mother’s Day Ideas that are Better
than Scented Soap and Dead Flowers



There are many creative ideas to make Mother’s Day special and show your love and appreciation for your mom. Here are a few suggestions:

—Plan a special brunch or dinner: You can cook her favorite meal or take her out to her favorite restaurant.

—Make a homemade gift. You can create a scrapbook of cherished memories, make a piece of jewelry, or create a personalized photo album.

—Give her a day off. Let your mom relax and pamper herself by doing all the chores and errands for the day.

—Plan a family outing. You can plan a picnic, hike, or any activity that your mom enjoys doing.

—Organize a spa day: Arrange for a relaxing spa day at home or take her to a nearby spa.

—Write a heartfelt letter. Write a letter expressing your love, gratitude, and appreciation for all that your mom has done for you.

—Gift her a subscription to her favorite magazine, streaming service, or any service she loves.

—Create a personalized card for your mom, using your artistic skills. Write a heartfelt message telling her how much you love and appreciate her.

—Mother-Daughter and/or Son Painting: Get creative with your mom and take a painting class together. You can paint a picture of a special memory, or just have fun experimenting with colors and textures.

—Plant a Garden: Spend the day planting a garden with your mom. Choose her favorite flowers or herbs and spend time together outdoors.

—Mother’s Day Movie Night: Choose your mom’s favorite movies and have a movie night at home. Make popcorn, dim the lights, and snuggle up together on the couch.

Regardless of the gift, the most important thing is to spend quality time with your mom and show her how much she means to you. Happy Mother’s Day!
