There’s nothing a mother enjoys more than feeling appreciated. Most days, we don’t really consider how much of a blessing moms really are, but that’s why there’s Mother’s Day. Mother’s day is dedicated to showing how much we care and appreciate our mothers. Here, I have written out some of my personal ideas for mother’s day activities and gifts, and while some may prove to be quite common, others are exotic and interesting.
A Morning Breakfast – Whether it’s going out to IHop or serving a homemade meal, both of these choices make a mother feel special. I personally recommend the homemade breakfast, because most mothers appreciate seeing the hard work and effort put into trying to make her happy.
A Hand-Made Card – This idea is preferable to people who prefer to sleep in and for younger children who don’t want to spend a lot of money. Include some of the things that you appreciate about your mom, and put a good amount of effort into it. Try to include a picture that will make her smile or a few words that just touch her heart.
A Picnic at the Park – Moms who enjoy the outdoors and the sunshine will definitely enjoy this idea. Bring along some sandwiches and other snacks and just sit back and crack a few jokes, or play a board game. There’s nothing more enjoyable than a whole family sitting together and enjoying a meal.
A Trip to the Movies – Let your mother pick a movie that she really wants to see, and take the entire family out on a movie trip. Beware, my fellow lovers of action movies, this idea is not wise if you know your mom loves the romantic movies that go against your DNA.
A Family Sport Competition – Invite a few of your mother’s friends over to partake in an enjoyable tournament between the moms and the children. The sport could be basketball, football, soccer, volleyball or whatever your mother prefers. I would not recommend this Mother’s day idea to older moms or moms that faint at the very sight of exercise.
Party at Mom’s House- This is another idea where you invite your mother’s friends over to a party. You can organize some games, buy some finger-food, and maybe watch a movie at the end. You can also have all of the children say the things that they love most about their mothers, which always ends up with hugs and kisses.
Go out to Eat – This idea is similar to the first one, except you want this meal to be around lunch or dinner. Please don’t take your mom to McDonalds or Burgerking, because you don’t want you mother thinking you’re trying to be a cheapskate. Try to take them out to somewhere at least a little special like Applebee’s or Chile’s.
A final recommendation to all of my fellow children of all ages who just want to make their mothers happy – make sure to put you heart into whatever you do for your mother, and don’t just do something just to do it. Put your heart into what you do for you mother because you love her, and she loves you too.
