Young Child Giving Mom a Gift for Mother's DayThis Mother’s Day, why not get the family together to treat Mom to a day that’s all about her! Moms spend a lot of time and effort making our lives better and it’s great to take some time to show the mom in your life just how much you appreciate her. Whether she likes to stay in and relax or go out and explore, these fun and sweet activities will make her Mother’s Day extra sweet.

Host brunch or dinner at home

Mother’s Day tends to be a very busy day at restaurants as families clamber to give Mom a break from cooking duties. Instead of fighting for a table, host a meal at home! Keep the meal simple and feel free to use store bought items to make it even easier. You can even make it a bigger celebration by inviting other family members and friends to join the fun.

Explore the great outdoors

The weather is usually nice around this time so take advantage and head outside for some quality family time. Whether you’re talking a causal walk around the neighborhood or heading out for a long hike, getting outside and moving will make everyone feel good. Make a day out of it by packing a picnic lunch!

Take her to her favorite places

Let your mom’s interests set the agenda for the day. If she has a favorite museum, store, or activity she likes to do, share it as a family!

Have a relaxing day in

If the mom in your life is usually on the go, take a break from the hustle and bustle of her usual schedule and have a relaxing day in. Have dad and the kids handle any requests and chores. Let her start the day by sleeping in, enjoy an at-home spa day or some coveted alone time, and then finish up the evening with a family game or movie night.

Make a difference together

Mother’s Day is a great time to give back to others. Consider donating some clothes to a local charity or women’s shelter or volunteering together in the community. You can also pick a cause or program she’s passionate about to make a donation in her name.

Whichever activity you choose to celebrate Mother’s Day, your efforts will be greatly appreciated. Even simple gifts and tokens of your love and gratitude will fill your mom’s heart. These sweet activities will make this special day one to remember.
