Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. Get a head start on making sure the day is perfect for your mom by starting the planning now. Here are six fun and creative ways that you can celebrate Mother’s Day this year.
Offer Your Services: There is a good chance that your mom feels overworked or stressed these days. You can take a bit of the load off by offering your own services to help her around the house. Perhaps you want to present her with a gift certificate for a house cleaning? Or maybe you want to surprise her by sprucing up the front yard?
Treat Her to a Special Meal: The way to mom’s heart may be through her stomach. If so, a special meal out may be in the cards for your family this Mother’s Day. If you do not want to head out for a meal, consider spoiling her with a home-cooked dinner prepared by the family. Or go all out with a brunch at home and a dinner out at her favorite restaurant.
Get Creative with a Homemade Gift: Moms delight in homemade gifts, making this a great occasion to get creative and make her something from the heart. Good ideas include a music playlist, a piece of artwork, a photo calendar, or a home video of her favorite people. You know best what type of homemade gift your mom will appreciate the most.
Get Outdoors: May is the perfect time to lean into the beauty of the spring season. This makes an outdoor outing with your mom a natural fit for this special day. Fortunately, Mother’s Day in Estes Park is easy with its close proximity to the many outdoor recreational opportunities at nearby Rocky Mountain National Park. Go for an easy hike around Bear Lake or simply take a drive through the rolling meadows.
Go Virtual: If you do not live near your mom, you can still celebrate her on this day. Consider organizing a virtual video call with the whole family. You can take this one step further by signing up for a virtual museum visit, an online board game, or any other activity that everyone can do together.
Movie Night: If your mom wants to stay in for her day, consider planning a movie night for the family. Prepare a smorgasbord of snacks, rent her favorite movie, and get cozy with all of your loved ones for a night of family fun. You can even tie a gift into this theme, presenting mom with a comfortable blanket to snuggle up with and a bottle of wine or a new tea mug.
Show your mom how much she is loved and appreciated by taking the time to plan a special day in her honor. These ideas provide a great start in your planning process.
