This Mother’s Day, this important time, show how much you appreciate everything she has done for you.
Among the main things to do on Mother’s Day is to treat your mother with all the kindness and courtesy she deserves. Here are some things to do for Mother’s Day that will assist you in making this one of the best she has ever had.
Grow your relationship
A Mother’s Day bouquet, beautifully arranged in a vase, adds to the sweetness of the day. Take it to another level by helping her get started, nurture and cultivate her backyard. This will be one of the best ways to nurture your love for each other.
Add to her backyard. Give her a fresh flower, plant or shrub to improve her garden. If your mom is the outdoor gardening kind, she will cherish a brand new rose bush, shrub or tree that will grow and remind her of her children.
Design a herb garden. If your mother loves to cook, she’ll love an outdoor or indoor herb garden. Label each herb and include instructions on how to best care for them.
Pick a meaningful gift.
When it comes to deciding on a Mother’s Day gift, here are a few classic and meaningful gifts to show your mother how much you love her.
Give her a special gift.

Design a collage. Put together a collage of photos from your family’s past and let her enjoy reminiscing about her life.
Write a heartfelt thank you note. Collect a list of things you’ve heard from her over the years. Or, write a thank you letter letting her know how you feel about all she has done for you and your family over the years.
Monogram an item. Give her a product, such as a scarf, with her name on it. Add you’re and your other siblings’ birthdays to make the product more personal.
Personalize a keepsake box. For a mom who likes to collect and preserve keepsakes, give her a unique engraved box.
Give your mom a gift that lasts all year. Consider giving her a personalized coupon book that she can pull from and redeem at will each time.
Plan a trip away. Help your mother get away for a few days. Even if you can’t be a part of it, she’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness. Cover all expenses and gratuities, so there are no unexpected costs.
Book a spa day: She’s taken care of everyone else, now it’s time for her to be pampered at a local day spa. Let her choose from several services, such as hair styling, massage, manicure and pedicure. Don’t forget to include suggestions when booking gifts.
Make a special meal: Cook one of her favourite, most decadent meals for your mother, including dessert. She’ll appreciate the thoughtfulness and the many delicious gestures.
Shopping spree and dinner: If your mom loves nothing more than a day at the mall and lunch at her favourite restaurant, this will delight her and give her something to look forward to.
Cleaning her home: You’ll be able to take on this job or give her a gift card for a cleaning service so she can schedule it on her own time.
Car wash and detail: It’s a pleasure to have a clean car, but it may not be one of the luxurious services your mom buys for herself. Your mother may enjoy this splurge.
Spend quality time together
While everyone’s lives are busy, the best gift is spending quality time with loved ones. Give your mother the gift of your time by planning an activity, or just let her decide what she wants to do with that precious time together.
Try a new recipe together. Cook a meal together. Keep the mood fun and take pictures to make new memories.
Play a game together. Have an afternoon board game marathon or a night of games with the whole family. Or, host a special game night for your mom, but let her choose her favourite game for everyone to play together.
