Although one day a year really isn’t enough to honour the person that gave birth to you and raised you, Mother’s Day is a great way to show mom how much you appreciate her. It turns out finding the best gift for mom is easier than you think! Here are five ways to add some laughter, sweetness and love into your Mother’s Day celebration. —Vita Daily
cook for mom. There truly is nothing like a home cooked meal by mom and it is time to return the favour. Cook your mom her favourite meal, buy her favourite wine or cocktail and even have siblings or partners act as hostesses and waiters. Give her a five-star dining experience at home, one she will never forget.
play games to celebrate. If food isn’t her thing, then why not liven up the party with some games to keep the crowd engaged and make cherished memories. Ideas like karaoke, mad libs and bingo are always fun. We all know mom deserves a break from daily chores. You can create your own game like a “give mom a break” game that you can create for the day. Let mom be the center of attention by offering to do all household chores. This can be a wonderful way of showing gratitude while mom puts her feet up on her special day.
something sweet for mom. Who doesn’t love ice-cream? Skip the flower store and head straight to dessert with the new Tall Stack Cake from Baskin-Robbins Canada. Customize with mom’s favourite cake and ice cream flavour topped with a special message to let her know how much she means to you.
watch a movie together. A budget-friendly way to stay in and avoid crowds is to let mom cuddle up on the couch in her pajamas! Yes, we’re talking about streaming a movie! We all know that the best Mother’s Day gift is quality time, so make plans to catch up and then press play on the TV with some of her favorite movie treats.
get pampered. At some point on Mother’s Day, mom may want some time alone or a chance for a little rest and relaxation. A few ideas include a 60-minute massage to help her unwind, or by bringing her to the hair salon and treating her to a cute new cut and blowout or take her for a manicure and pedicure at her favourite nail salon. And if your mom is in the mood for a glass of wine, then why not? It’s her day, after all.
