Mothers are arguably the most important women in our lives. From dropping us off at school all those mornings to coaching us through adulthood, we all have a reason to show our moms some love.
Whether you’re celebrating this day with your wife, mother-in-law or the special person who brought you into this world, Mother’s Day is a time of appreciation for the influential figures in our lives. With such an important day coming up, it only makes sense for us to start planning ahead to make the moms feel rewarded for a lifetime of dedication.
So without further ado, here’s our list of Mother’s Day ideas for the perfect way to spend this holiday.
Take a DIY Class
We’ve always known our mothers as the crafty ones in our lives. If we wanted our shirts hemmed or needed help with our school art projects, we always turned to the person we believed knew best. That’s why we suggest taking a DIY class with your favorite person in the world to get a small idea of what it’s like to be in her shoes.
Fortunately for those who love to use their hands, there are plenty of options for creating some sentimental keepsakes. If your mom is all about scents and essential oils, you can sign up for a candle-making class to have your home smelling like her favorite fragrances. Or maybe she’s more into accessorizing – join a knitting or leather-crafting class so she can take home a cute scarf or personalized wallet. The best part is that you’ll end up leaving with more than just a souvenir, you’ll be leaving with memories of bonding with the person who helps bring out your creative side.
Sometimes it’s best to step outside of our comfort zones, and growing up, some of our own mothers have encouraged us to do so. Which is why planning an adventurous outing for Mother’s Day can be fitting if your mom is the daring type!
For those families that live close enough to a large body of water, take a drive out to the nearest beach or lake and go parasailing for that much-needed adrenaline rush. If that’s not really your thing, there’s always a way to embrace your adventurous side without going extreme – like camping out in a treehouse! It’s always a rejuvenating experience to be tucked away from the rest of the world (yes, that includes Wi-Fi) and seclude yourselves with nothing but your loved ones. Weekend trips like this always leave room for some quality bonding time and re-kindle any adventurous spirit.
We know that not everyone is in the mood for venturing out of their homes; sometimes, you just need some time to relax outside of your busy schedules, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make Mother’s Day any less special. We believe in the importance of self-care and pampering yourself (and your moms, of course!) over anything. Whip up a DIY face mask by just applying egg whites to your skin – trust us, it has its benefits. If you’re not up for at-home remedies, you can just purchase any pre-made face mask for more convenient use.
You and your mom can also just turn on a feel-good playlist, pour yourselves a glass of wine, and rearrange certain parts of your home. You might actually find it therapeutic to work on bringing in more feng shui to your humble abode. Plus, a collaborative effort between you and your mother – the ultimate power duo – can leave your space with an aesthetic reminder of a relaxing yet productive day.
Before we let you roam free to your jam-packed Mother’s Day, we can’t let you forget one of the most heartfelt gifts any mom can receive. That’s right: flowers! No Mother’s Day is complete without a farm-fresh batch of vibrant petals, and we want to make sure that the one special woman in your life receives only the best that The Bouqs has to offer. Our vibrant roses are the most classic way of showing off your love and really go “above and beyond” the typical bouquet, but if you’re looking to switch things up from the traditional route, we’re sure that our collection of lilies, carnations, and tulips will get the same message across!
For those who can’t physically be with their mothers or motherly figures for the occasion, we still want to ensure that distance isn’t enough to stop you from spreading that love over state lines. Our scheduler is perfect for planning ahead for those days you know you’ll miss and showing your loved ones that they’re in your thoughts.
We hope that our ideas for a fun-filled Mother’s Day helps convey your sincerity and show off your appreciation for a lifetime of unconditional love.Shop All
