Spring is in full swing and Mother’s Day is nearly here. We are loving this change in season and the warmer weather it brings. If you’re struggling with ideas to make the day special for the mother in your life, check out these activity and gift ideas we’ve gathered for you.
Mother’s Day Activities
At Home Spa Day
Cook An Old Family Recipe
Surprise her by tracking down a favorite old family recipe and cook it for her. You could also make a collection of family favorites in a recipe box or notebook. Reach out to relatives and track down ones that may have sentimental meaning behind them. She’ll love it!
Create a Crepe Bar
It might look fancy, but a crepe bar is simple to set up! Follow this recipe for the crepes (or check for pre-made ones at your local store) and then gather her favorite fillings. Some great choices are Nutella & bananas, fresh berries, whipped cream cheese, lemon curd, and so much more.
Go for a Walk
It seems so simple, but sometimes mom’s love just getting outside together for a nice walk. Feel free to go somewhere special, but even just a nearby neighborhood stroll is the simple kind of activity a mom enjoys. As long as you include a couple of other activities or gifts from our list!
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Make It Special
Homemade gifts are a favorite for mothers, but be sure to add a little something extra special to make it sentimental or fun. A collection of family photos in an album or photo book can be nice, or something that’s useful but also pretty.
This may be the best gift you can give any mother! And you know we have this category covered, but special suggestions would be our sheet sets, SLEEP kit, or a little bit of luxurious flair in our Leighton Collection. And if it’s too late to get something in time, you can always get one of our e-gift cards!
Roll up those sleeves and get to work! Plant a garden, do some extra yard work, clean out the garage – whatever it is she wants, she gets! Every mom is different, but sometimes the gift of hard work is honestly what she would love most.
We hope this guide has been helpful but whatever you choose, the mother in your life is sure to love it! Happy Spring!
