May is officially here which means it’s time to start thinking of ways to spoil mom this month and show her how much you love and appreciate her. If you’re looking for ideas on how to treat mom during this year of unique challenges, check out these suggestions below.
If You Live with Mom:
Let Her Rest
When you ask moms what they really want on Mother’s Day, it usually involves a day of rest and relaxation. So give mom what she’s been dreaming of by taking care of everything for the day so she can sleep in and lounge blissfully in peace.
Cook for Her
Take it a step further and spoil her by making breakfast in bed or a homemade brunch set up on the patio. Just remember to clean up the kitchen afterwards so she doesn’t have to lift a finger!
Get Her Flowers
When in doubt, flowers are always a lovely gesture that will brighten mom’s day and make her feel loved. And with spring in full swing, you can easily find the perfect bouquet filled with her favourite flowers.
If You Don’t Live with Mom:
Deliver a DIY Spa Kit
If you can’t physically be there to pamper mom, make an at-home spa kit and drop it off on her front porch while keeping safely distanced. You could include a few face masks, a body scrub, bubbles for the bath, a mani and pedi kit, and any other items that you think she’d enjoy.
Get Her a Gift Card to Her Favourite Local Business
Local businesses need our help now more than ever, and one great way to treat mom while supporting local is to get her a gift card. This way, she can get something for herself that she really wants and loves, whether it’s from her favourite restaurant or boutique.
Virtual Wine and Cheese Date
You can also make a homemade tote bag with her favourite bottle of wine and some delicious cheeses. Drop it off and set up a virtual wine and cheese date to enjoy together. When it comes to spoiling mom for Mother’s Day, giving her lots of time to unwind and relax is the winning combination. Whether you live with mom or not, there are many simple ways to show how much you appreciate all that she does for you each andevery day.Is mom thinking of downsizing anytime soon?
