We think moms should be celebrated everyday, but it’s nice that there’s a day dedicated specifically for them. The question arising now is what does she want for Mother’s Day? Does she want jewellery, a new watch or a beautiful picture frame? Well, we can start with the basics: a happy life and a healthy family. These are the things that really matter. But if she already has that, here are some good ideas to remind mom just how much she’s appreciated.

Start Her Day Off With Delight

Surprise your mom with a pair of comfy, cozy pyjamas the night before and let her know she doesn’t need to set that morning alarm tomorrow. Include a card with an outline of all the things you plan to check off her list for her the next day, or some creative hint to what she can expect.

Complete the surprise with a bedside bunch of flowers in the morning and breakfast in bed, or make a reservation for the family at your mom’s favourite brunch restaurant.

Plan a Surprise Activity Together

Mother’s Day is the perfect time to spend quality family time together. Try a new hiking trail, take a day trip to explore a new town, visit a museum or hit an outdoor concert everyone would enjoy. A pre-planned day of “together time” can be the perfect gift.

Give Her Me-Time With Spending Money

Sometimes, moms can be the hardest people to shop for. Opt for the practical side to a gift and get her a certificate for some much needed mommy time.

If you’re worried about giving mom the idea that you were last minute gift shopping here’s what you can do: give her a day to shop for herself. Make a lunch reservation at her favourite restaurant near her favourite store where she can meet her girlfriends for a mid-day rally. The gift certificate, plus time to herself, plus coordinating with the other dads, makes this an amazing Mother’s Day surprise.

Take Care Of It

Do you know which phrase can be music to a mom’s ears? “I’ll take care of it.” So here’s what you can do to make it happen. For all those things she’s been nudging you to do, before Mother’s Day, make sure you have done them. Take care of the grocery shopping, laundry, meals and cleaning if you need to. That’s how you’ll make sure your mom relaxes completely on her day.

Tip: Don’t ask her questions. If you need help or advice, ask someone besides Mom!

Create Something Just for Mom

Finally, if all else seems to fail, show Mom your household can work as a team to create something unique and special that she will keep forever.  Try something arts and crafts related, or make extra-special Mother’s Day cupcakes, ‘I love you Mom’ bookmarks if she loves to read, or write a poem together and frame it. There are lots of great DIY gift ideas with step-by-step help on Pinterest.
