How to Celebrate Mom
May 11, 2015
Chances are you have been influenced by a mother figure in your life. Whether your own mom, an aunt, teacher, or a grandma, Mother’s Day is a perfect opportunity to let them know how you’ve appreciated them. And, if you have a soon-to-be mom or a first-time mom in your life, do not let this day pass without letting them feel special. Here are some ideas that are sure to make them feel just that:
Breakfast in Bed
Let mom catch some extra shut eye while you whip up a breakfast for her in bed. A card and fresh flowers are a great touch to make mom feel extra special!
Not just your run-of-the-mill Hallmark card, but a card that tells her how many reasons why she’ll be a wonderful mother!
I don’t know about you, but I LOVE jewelry. There are so many elegant pieces available now, especially necklaces and bracelets that are monogrammed. If you already have a name picked out for baby, put all of your initials together. That way she’ll have her family close with her anytime she wears it.
Even if mom can’t get away-away, let her take an afternoon to go shopping and out to lunch. Any chance she can get to go run errands without an extra child with her will feel like a treat!
Isn’t it nice when someone takes care of YOU? Especially for someone who is always taking care of someone else. So, book a massage, pedicure, or even a manicure for her. She’ll LOVE being able to relax and be pampered!
But, not just your everyday bouquet, with May and Mother’s Day come the perfect time to plant flowers in a garden or in planters to adorn your house with. She’ll love seeing fresh blooms decorated around the house. This is a lovely idea that any mother would love!
Words are powerful. Write her a card expressing how you feel about becoming a new parent (or how you’re currently feeling as a new parent). Or, share with her your favorite quote about moms. We love this one in particular:
“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”-Abraham Lincoln
As you can see, there are so many options to let mom know you care about her. Either option you choose, she will love a gift! Especially extra time for HER to take care of herself.
Happy Mother’s Day!
