Mother’s Day is around the corner but again you have no idea what to do for your mother, sisters, aunts, cousins and friends. At the same time you want to have your own mother’s day with your husband to celebrate in your own way. What to do?
I personally pick the weekend before Mother’s day or the weekend after to celebrate with my mom. Some years I may invite my sisters to celebrate with us. Some years its just me and my mom (some years they want to do something one on one with our mom). Same thing with friends and relatives. Pick a day to celebrate. It doesn’t have to be on Mother’s Day! The day of Mother’s Day I like to spend home relaxing or whatever my husband has in mind.
Some great ideas on what to do that I have done in the past and new ideas I plan to do are:
- Manicure and pedicure
- Brunch at a restaurant or at home
- A fun restaurant like Hibachi
- Walk your local state park
- Spend the day looking at baby pictures with appetizers and a movie at home
These are just some ideas and not all require spending a ton of money. After all its about appreciating what you have with your mom. Not about the amount spent. With that being said depending on the outing, also depends on the gift! If you are spending a little more on the outing you can spend less on the gift. Vice versa. It becomes harder as well to shop for adults. For example, I feel my mom has everything! And as adults we can buy what we want. Therefore I like to go for thoughtful gifts or things they may need.
Some gift ideas for the mom:
- Bouquet of flowers
- Easy care green plant, like a peace lily
- Wallet, if you know for sure the style
- Manicure/pedicure gift certificate
- Favorite perfume
- Massage certificate
- Restaurant certificate
- Arts and craft supplies
- Yarn for the knitter
- Food delivery service like HelloFresh or Blue Apron
- Grocery store gift certificate
- Favorite store gift certificate
- Cook together
These are just some fun ideas to spend the day together and celebrate! Depending how nice it is, there is always something to do!
I hope every mom out there has a wonderful and relaxing Mother’s Day!
