Saying that mom deserves the world this Mother’s Day is an understatement, but purchasing a gift sometimes still slips the mind…oops! If you’re in a time crunch figuring out just how you’ll make mom feel special this Sunday, check out some of our ideas below.
Recreate an old family photo.
Have you ever seen those photos floating around online where grown siblings will recreate a family photo from when they were just young toddlers? From the pose to the outfits, everything looks the same aside from the fact that they’ve grown much older. This is a cute and funny way to show mom how far you’ve come, all thanks to her!
Swap roles for the day.
Your mom was really a superhero growing up, always making sure that you had a warm dinner on the table and clean clothes in your drawers. You might take care of your own meals and laundry these days, but how about also taking care of mom’s this Sunday? After all, she totally deserves it!
Create an at-home spa day.
It’s a bit pricey sending mom to an actual spa for the day (and a bit late for reservations, anyway), but you can give her this blissful feeling right at home. Set up a hot bubble bath, play some tranquil music, and grab a soothing sheet mask for her.
Watch her favorite childhood film together.
Mom will really appreciate knowing you’re curious about the things she enjoyed growing up. After all, she spent countless days supporting all of your interests! Ask mom what her favorite movie was as a child, then spend some quality time watching it together while eating all of her favorite snacks.
Make a recipe she passed down to you.
Is there a favorite dish that mom always cooked you growing up? One that totally made you feel all warm and cozy inside? This Mother’s Day, show mom how much that homecooked meal meant to you by whipping it up for her. It’s sentimental and delicious!
Spend time reminiscing together.
Crack out the old photo albums and dust off the old home videos. It’s time to take a trip down memory lane! Mom will love looking back on all the fun family time you guys have spent together through the years—from the time you were a baby up until now!
Create a PowerPoint presentation highlighting your appreciation for her.
There’s only so much love you can fit into a Mother’s Day card, but – honestly – mom deserves more than that. How about putting together a whole presentation on why you love her? Complete it with funny memories, family photos, and specific examples of why she’s the absolute best.
