Celebrating Mother’s Day!

Share This Post

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you might be cutting it a little close with buying a gift online, if you haven’t already. The good news is that spending quality time with the wonderful moms in your life on Mother’s Day is just as, if not more important than getting her something special. This, just like picking the perfect gift, depends on what she enjoys doing in her free time.
Sometimes just acknowledging that you know and appreciate her interests is enough to make her feel loved. A good place to start is to think of her favorite hobbies, such as reading, gardening, shopping, hiking, or kayaking and using that to pick a destination or activity for the day.
Make a reservation at her favorite place to get brunch or dinner because sometimes there’s nothing better than NOT having to decide what to cook and then actually having to cook it. However, if she prefers something more close to home, you can always get some takeout from one of her favorite places and spend quality time together at home. If you do decide to enjoy a meal at home, it’s also important that you don’t leave her with a bunch of dishes and cleaning up to do. Show her that you can take care of her the way she has always taken care of you.
Based on her hobbies, you can also reserve a spot at a nearby spa for some pampering or if she enjoys arts and craft, you can take her to a Paint and Sip studio or Color Me Mine. Wherever you decide to go, make sure that you participate along with her to show interest in the things that bring her joy and that you want to share in those experiences.
Some activities which require a little less planning in advance, include outdoor activities. If she enjoys gardening or the outdoors, you could take her to a local farmers market; a picnic at the Morton Arboretum; or a walk at the Anderson Japanese Gardens. Make sure that you capture as many of the memories as possible on camera and have them printed out as a gift. Without underestimating the thoughtfulness behind a gift, memories made with loved ones can often be more precious to hold onto.
