In fact, it’s nice that you’re looking for ways to celebrate your mom before Mother’s Day arrives. No doubt, you’re probably looking for some interesting and fun ideas. If that’s the case, you’re in the right place. Whatever you settle on, your mother will be pleased that you want to celebrate her on her special day. After all, it’s the thought that counts. On that note, here are a few options to consider for Mother’s Day.
1. Send your mother some flowers.
The right kind of flowers have a way of putting a smile on someone’s face. This means that choosing the right Mother’s Day flowers will be a great way to celebrate your mother this year. Find a bouquet your mom loves, or fashion a bouquet with blooms that depict her character or her personality. If you’re unsure which ones, you can visit your local florist for advice on the best flowers for a Mother’s Day bouquet.
You could have a beautiful bouquet of sunflower, lilies, tulips, orchids, or carnations in a vase sent to your mother through a day delivery florist service. You could also send her some beautiful succulents as your Mother’s Day gift to her.
2. Prepare a spa day for her.
If your mother is the kind that barely has a break from taking care of your family, you might want to help her relax with some pampering. You could either book an expensive or affordable spa treatment at the nearest spa center or, better still, pamper her with a spa treatment at home.
You can start with a homemade face mask, scented candles, dimmed lights, and calming music. Then help her relax with a deep tissue massage with some essential oils or skincare products from credible brands like the Nicole Kidman skincare line. The Big Little Lies star recommends hydrating creams for dry skin and sunscreen from SeraLabs as her favorite skincare products. You can top it all off by preparing a hot bath for her.
3. Celebrate her with a handwritten personal message.
There’s nothing more touching than a heartfelt message to your loved one. You can get a lovely decorated paper, a beautiful colored pen, and write down lots of special messages. Tell your mom how much you appreciate her and love her. Don’t hold back. Think about how much your mother means to you and write your message in a way that celebrates her qualities. You can throw in some specific moments between you and your mom that have greatly impacted your life.
Remember, mothers feel very happy when their little actions (that sometimes go unnoticed) are appreciated. So you can, for instance, thank your mom for taking up multiple jobs, which ultimately helped her pay your college fees. How about the many days she took off work to come and watch you play at the school games? She did this all for you even during the hard times.
If you’re struggling to find something to write, try making a list of things you love and respect about her and start from there.
4. Take her out to her favorite restaurant.
Mom deserves a nice day out with lots of fun activities. But what will be more exciting is taking her to a fancy restaurant she probably hasn’t been to before and have her try some exquisite meals. Your mother will definitely appreciate a break from kitchen duties. You can plan this with your father and siblings (if you have any) and surprise mom with a beautiful night out. If she can’t go out with you (maybe because you live miles away from her), you can order the meals and have them delivered to her. The important thing is that she should feel celebrated.
