Mother's Day is all about making mom smile
Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate anyone in your life who you consider a mother or a motherly figure. Like many holidays, this is one that should showcase a time to give thanks to a special lady by giving her a gift or celebratory party. If your mother is someone who doesn’t like gifts, spending the day with her is a great way for her to know how much you care and she means to you.
And if you do not have a mom in your life (a reality some have to face early in life), Mother’s day is a great day to wish any mom you do know. Tell her that she’s doing a great job and should feel proud of herself.
But really, Mother’s day is to pamper your mom if you have the luxury of having one! And if you are a mom, it’s a day to relax and take it easy if you can. Show yourself some love momma!
Here are some ways you can creatively thank mom for all she does...
Flowers !! Who doesn’t love flowers? A simple yet very loving gift for a mother close to your heart is flowers. Flowers light up the room they are in with aroma that instantly makes women smile. And, the best thing about flowers is the option to choose from various colors and sized bouquets.
If you have a small budget of $15-$20, you can still get a very nice bouquet made and delivered. Have a larger budget? Tell the florist her favorite colors, flower arrangements or show them a photo you found online.
Florist are known for creating customized flower arrangements so don’t be shy in letting them know what you have in mind. Top your chosen bouquet with a cute card or note and you’re sure win big brownie points with her heart!

Make a handmade card for mom this Mother's Day
Homemade and DIY gifts are a great way to show your mother how much she means too you. If she has young children help them make a homemade card for her with drawings, notes, and even crafts. Nothing warms a mother’s heart more than her children and seeing the time and dedication you took to make her something special, will surely bring a huge smile to her face!
And add some flowers to tell her how much you love her.. Flowers say it best !
Make her breakfast or take her our for dinner ... or better yet do both.
Other than her kids, food is a great way to warm your mother’s heart! Let her take the day off by ordering take-out from her favorite restaurant or by making dinner for her so she can have the night to rest.
If your mother is a state or city away and you’re not able to spend the evening with her, sending her a gift certificate to her favourite restaurant for the next time you are in town or for an evening with her friends on you, is another great gift idea.
This is a sure shot way to making her Mother’s day special.
And add some flowers – moms love flowers!! 💐💐
Picnics make for great afternoons out with mom
If you’re in an area where the snow has lifted and it’s a sunny day, why not spend the day with your kids or family by having a picnic in the park. Picnics are a great way to give any mother some time to lay back and enjoy the sun with family and friends.
If you have a neighbourhood full of mothers, choose one house for everyone to go to and host the picnic there. Then everyone can bring their families and while the kids play, the mom’s can also have some time enjoying neighbourly company. It’s a win-win!
And even when you’re planning the picnic make sure to send mom out to get a manicure or some time alone so she does not feel the need to help out on her day off.
A night out sans kids - She also needs a break !
This is more for mother’s who you are friends with or husbands. If you have a special mother in your life and you know she would love to have a night for herself, offer to take her kids and babysit for a night (free of charge, of course!) while she spends the evening doing anything she wants. Mom’s do a lot for their families and having a little break away from their kids to get some relaxation is a great way to spoil her without you needing to spend any money on a gift.
Giving some time to mom and her partner alone might be the perfect Mother’s day gift to her… Not only will she enjoy herself and relax knowing that her kids are in trusted care but she will also remember to do the same for another mother later on.
