Mother’s Day is traditionally all about appreciating mom, giving her those carefully selected cards and presents, treating her to a nice breakfast or brunch, and then? Well, often after that, the festivities tend to slow down. This year, why not recognize her all day long, with activities you both can enjoy. Think about treating her to a day of shopping much like she did for you when you were a kid. Or, if your mom is the sporty type, join her on a bike ride or trail run and include a fun place to stop for beverages or lunch. And how about the gift of relaxation, especially if you’re a mom yourself? Yes, we all know being a parent is rewarding, but it doesn’t always come easy – let her know you understand and enjoy an afternoon spa session together. If your mom loves to be in the kitchen, there’s nothing wrong with embracing her culinary interests and working together on a fun dinner – just make sure she doesn’t have to do the dishes!
As a suggestion, let your mom know to keep her day open and present your special plans for Mother’s Day in a customizable, print at home card. It’s easy and she is sure to appreciate your thoughtfulness.
