Moms deserve to be celebrated year round, but Mother’s Day should be extra special. Check out our Mother’s Day ideas for fun, easy activities that will bring a smile to mom’s face!
Cook up mom’s greatest culinary hits.
They may not always have been Michelin-star worthy, but mom’s home-cooked meals were on the table and ready for the family every night. Pick a few favorites—lasagna, meat loaf, brownies—and whip them all up with creative twists. Make it as easy as possible for mom by doing the grocery shopping beforehand and cleaning up afterwards, so she can kick up her feet and relax.
Indulge in a spa date.
It’s a classic for a reason! A manicure or massage is the perfect way to thank mom for all she does. After all, she once changed your diapers—she deserves some major pampering.
Take a class together.
From tying your shoelaces to surviving college, chances are mom taught you some valuable lessons growing up. Mother’s Day is a great time to learn something new together: from knitting and quilting to calligraphy and cake decorating, there’s sure to be a class that piques her interest.
Mother’s Day is the perfect day to enjoy Mother Earth! If mom has a green thumb, take her to a nursery and pick out some new plants. Or, pack a light lunch and enjoy a picnic with a view at a nearby park. Hiking, biking, sunbathing…whatever you do, you’ll enjoy the sunshine, fresh air and fantastic company.
Enjoy a staycation.
You may not have the time and budget for traveling, but you can create a fun staycation for mom in just a few simple steps. Has she always dreamed of an exotic vacation to Barcelona? Treat her to an authentic meal of tapas and paella, put on some Flamenco music and watch a fun foreign film. It’ll be an adventure—no passport required!
