Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Have you decided on just the right gift to show Mom or the mother of your child(ren) how much you love and appreciate her and all she does, all year long?
If you’re leaning toward the standard fragrant, colorful bouquet and dinner out, consider adding a little something to the tradition this year. Or maybe it’s time for an entirely new approach. Either way, vow to make this Mother’s Day an extraordinary occasion in her life.
Make her something: Who doesn’t love a handmade gift? A homecooked meal, her favorite dessert, a personalized card, a piece of décor for the home. The possibilities are endless. Don’t worry about perfection, because the thought, time, and energy that go into making something for that special mom will overshadow any imperfections in the finished product.
Lighten her load: There’s a lot of truth to the proverb—“A mother’s work is never done.” Show her you understand that by lightening her load on Mother’s Day for sure, but even better, for the entire weekend. Take over the cooking. Tidy up the house. Do the laundry. Tend to the kids.
Think pampering: Consider her personal preferences. Pampering to her may mean an afternoon snuggled up with a good book followed by a long nap. Her choice for an indulging activity might be a massage or a manicure/pedicure. Maybe her greatest wish is a relaxing, quiet day home alone or breakfast out. Think about her preferences, not your own, and choose accordingly.
Give her your time: In our hectic, race-here-and-there world, just spending time together without a thousand interruptions can be a difficult task. Let Mom choose a together-time activity. Whether it’s an afternoon at the park that concludes with ice cream or an exciting adventure at the local amusement park, tuck away all electronic devices and enjoy being together.
Donate in her name: What cause is near and dear to her heart? It could be that Mom would appreciate nothing more than a monetary donation made to an organization that she believes in and to which she feels connected. If you’re short on ideas, talk with friends and family.
