It’s time to show Mom our appreciation! So we thought of a few little things to spoil her on Mother’s Day.
A Cake to Spoil Her
Homemade gifts are very popular with moms. What better way to express our love than a cake prepared just for her? Simply let the children’s creativity run wild as they decorate the cake with candy confetti or small chocolate eggs. You’ll find a ton of ideas online, or at the craft supply shop and bulk food store. Plan to make the cake while Mom is out getting a massage. You’ll have another surprise in store for her when she gets home… Yummy!
A Card to Move Her
Create a memory that will last a lifetime by having the kids prepare a handmade card with a special note inside for Mom, or have them make her a simple drawing that illustrates all the love between mother and child. Plan a secret crafternoon to prepare these memorable gifts to surprise Mom on Mother’s Day. She’ll be so proud to keep this card made especially for her in her memory box.
Flowers to Make Her Feel Special
Although flowers are the traditional option, they are always a great idea. What a pleasant gift, especially when they are chosen carefully. Plan a fun family visit to the florist, without Mom, of course, to buy her flowers that the children will have picked out for Mother’s Day. Be sure not to choose just any flowers! Here’s a hint: peonies or Ranunculus flowers are great options, plus they will look beautiful on your living room coffee table.
Breakfast to Pamper Her
Oh my! Breakfast in bed is hard to beat on Mother’s Day! And it’s a very easy and fun activity to do with the kids: a bowl of yogurt with chopped fruit served with toast and jam. Place everything on a stylish tray and voila! We can only imagine Mom sleeping in her big cozy bed and being woken up nicely by the gentle kisses and cuddles of her children, who serve her a delicious meal prepared with love. Mom will feel pampered as soon as she opens her eyes!
There are many options to thank Mom for everything she does other than homemade gifts. Subscriptions to magazines, weekend getaways, gift boxes; the possibilities are endless! In the end, it’s the thought that counts! The important thing is to shower Mom with love to celebrate Mother’s Day and show her how much she’s appreciated.
