3) Mom Coupons: Redeemable Any Time
Making your Mom a book of coupons for chores, family outings or even dates is a great way to let Mom feel the love all year round.
Whether it’s a coupon to do the dishes or take her out for a movie when she needs it most, she’ll love it. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
4) Mother’s Day Picnic
Especially if the weather’s nice, pack some sandwiches, pasta salad, and some freshly cut fruit and take Mom to your local arboretum for a day outside.
Remember to pack a blanket for stretching out on the grass. For a touch of sophistication, bring a bottle of a light wine in tow.
5) Make A Collage
Using photos and memories from the years past, ticket stubs, or whatever you can fit on a small poster board, capture your family at their happiest.

6) Mom’s Choice
There’s not a single one-activity-fits-all when it comes to moms. The mother in your life is a special and unique lady, so try to customize your activities to her interests and hobbies. If your Mom’s an avid gardener, bring her some seedlings or the beginnings of an herb garden and offer to spend the afternoon planting with her. If your Mom loves to read, offer to take her to the book store for coffee and book browsing. Give her a chance to do something she enjoys with you.
If you think you don’t have what it takes to be a good sport as your Mom’s partner in crime, let her fly solo. Getting aggravated or impatient will ruin the mood. Let her enjoy her day!
7) Don’t Let Mom Cook
Dinner doesn’t have to be fancy, but it shouldn’t be up to mom to feed the family today. Whether you take her out out for dinner or you team up and make dinner for mom together, let her know she’s taken care of.
Going out of the way to make her favorite meal will go a long way. Dress up the meal with a homemade sangria or a nice wine.
8) Clean Up
364 days out of the week, mom is constantly behind the scenes cleaning up after everyone. This Mother’s Day, don’t let her lift a finger. After dinner or breakfast, wash the dishes, take out the trash, and don’t leave a mess behind your activities today.
As much as she’ll appreciate your hard efforts, leaving the responsibility and stress of cleaning up to mom may put a damper on your grandiose Mother’s Day plans. Give her a day off.
