Mother's Day Celebration Ideas, Gifts for Mom, Activities for Mother's Day

How should you honor your mom — and all that she does — this Mother’s Day? Let us count the ways. Maybe it will be with handmade treasures, a tasty brunch, or thoughtful words of appreciation. Explore our list of ideas to get your creative juices flowing and make mom happy this year. Get planning because Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 14th.

Bring a Bouquet. Vibrant blooms and fun garden gifts are the perfect way to say “Happy Mother’s Day” to your very special mom. Flower arrangements from the garden are as special as they are easy. Tip: Dress up your special delivery by creating a memorable holder with these tips. 

Give a Living Gift. Give mom a present she can plant outside by putting a blooming bulb inside a vase (or even a simple can) and wrapping it with decorative paper. Tip: Pinked edges, a bit of ribbon, and a stamped tag make the gift extra special.

Plan a Picnic. Make mom a special picnic place in the yard. Set up a comfy spot to relax outdoors and gather her favorite snacks and preferred drink. Tip: Fresh flowers and plush pillows make a picnic spread feel so decadent.

Make a Meal. Whether it’s a surprise breakfast in bed or a relaxed afternoon tea, there’s no sweeter way to say “I love you” than with a homemade Mother’s Day meal. Here are a few simple recipes that will impress any mom. Tip: Don’t forget to clean up the mess in the kitchen!

Take a Pic. Moms love family pictures but it rarely happens without a lot of planning and complaining. Gather the family and plan a photo shoot for mom in the backyard or at the nearest park. Your mom will treasure these photos forever. 

Create a Card. Use your crafting skills to create a special card for the mom in your life. Try creating Memory Links by writing memories–both old and new–on strips of pretty paper and attach them together with glue. You will both enjoy reading them together. Tip: Mom will appreciate any handwritten note.

Movie Night. Create a special night for mom by bringing the movies to her. Pop some kettle corn, grab her favorite snacks and let her pick the flick. If it isn’t your favorite genre, or even if you’ve seen it 100’s of times, offer to watch it with her again — without complaining!

Make Mother’s Day Last. Why not go back to the classic “coupon book” that worked so well for us in the past? Make a coupon book offering to complete chores around the house, meal prep, tech help, or quiet time.

Say Thanks. It may sound simple, but your mom loves to be cherished and would feel like a queen with a genuine hug and “Thank You” from you.

The most important thing to consider on Mother’s Day is your mom. What does she like to do with her free time? Does she prefer a quiet movie night with take out, a day working in the garden or an afternoon indulging in spa services? Whatever you choose to do to treat the mom in your life this year, enjoy – because we all heart mom! Happy Mother’s Day from the team at Signature Homes.
