8 Ways to Make Your Mom Feel Appreciated on Mother's Day

Your mom is the ultimate star of your story — the person who most likely has been there for you from day one. She’s your biggest cheerleader and works harder than anyone you know. On Mother’s Day, it’s the perfect time to make your mom feel loved and appreciated. Here are our top eight ways that you can make your mom feel special on Mother’s Day this year.

1. Buy Your Mother Flowers

Flowers are the ultimate gift to say that you’re thinking of someone. They are also a classic choice for Mother’s Day. The red carnation is the flower for mothers on this special day, but feel free to choose your mom’s favorite flower.

2. Write a Card for Your Mother

Mother’s Day cards are easy but what makes them stand out is including a handwritten note in the card. Pick out a card that you think fits your mom’s interests or aesthetic. Then, sit down and write out a few reasons that you are thankful to have your mom in your life.

3. Take Your Mother Out to Eat

If your mom spends a large chunk of her time making food for you and your family, she’s bound to be tired of the kitchen. It can be exhausting figuring out what to make, prepping the food, mixing ingredients, and cleaning up afterward. The process of cooking is time-consuming and repetitive, day after day. Taking your mom out to eat for Mother’s Day is a great way to give her mind and body a rest while also providing delicious food.

4. Plan a Family Activity

Moms are often in charge of planning family activities and keeping everyone organized. Give your mom a break and take over. Plan a family outing down to the smallest detail and take your mom out as a surprise! Often decision fatigue by making a plan from start to finish so all she has to do is come along!

5. Offer a Hotel Gift Card

If your family spends a lot of time together, Mother’s Day might be a better opportunity to give your mom a break from family. Buy her a hotel gift card and let her go out for a hotel getaway with her partner or by herself. A night away from family obligations and stress can be a wonderful respite for moms.

6. Seek Out a Specialty Shop Gift

If you want to do something unique for your mom, check out a specialty shop. Whether online or in person, specialty shops offer unique items for gifts. Think about your mom’s favorite hobbies and purchase something that is in line with those hobbies.

7. Perform House Projects

Is there a project around the house that your mom has wanted to get done forever but hasn’t started yet? Take care of it for her. Get her out of the house for the afternoon and knock that project off her list of home improvements. She’ll come home both pampered and relieved.

8. Plan a Spa Day

A spa day is a luxurious way to spend the afternoon and if there’s anyone who deserves a peaceful, luxurious afternoon, it’s a hardworking mom. Send her out for a manicure, pedicure, massage, facial, or other spa-infused service.

Remember, your mother has sacrificed so much for you, it’s a blessing to be able to show her how much you care. Some people have terrible relationships with their mothers. If you have a good one, make sure that you celebrate her like she deserves.
