Mother’s Day is a beautiful day that’s set aside to honor the courageous women who have sacrificed their lives, bodies and time to care for others. I love my mother and rely on her often for wisdom and advice to this day. And of course with five kids, motherhood is one of my main identities right now. Here are some ideas for ways to celebrate the mothers in your life.
1. Spa Day
Rest and relaxation are always welcomed components of an excellent Mother’s Day celebration. This is especially true for a woman who spends a lot of time on her feet. Find the swankiest spa in town and enjoy massages, mud wraps and facials together. If you’d like to make it a weekend experience, book a hotel suite for the weekend. Order room service and enjoy the beauty of kicking up your feet to relax.
Even making your own spa bath experience can be a treat for a busy mother!
Consider hosting a brunch and invite a few of the other mothers you know. You can host it at your home and cater it with delicious brunch food. Remember that the other mothers will want to spend time with their families as well. Knowing this, schedule the brunch to last an hour and a half (max). This will the ladies enough time to eat their food, get second helpings and connect with one another.
If the mother in your life loves to shop until she drops, take her to her favorite mall and let her do her thing. If she prefers to shop alone, get her a giftcard to her favorite store so she can have the freedom she desires. Many women look at shopping as a dose of much-needed retail therapy. Plus, many stores are open on Mother’s day and have excellent sales.
Between the live music, great acting and celebratory atmosphere, it’s always nice to enjoy a night at the theater. If you live near a major city like New York City, there are tons of shows on Broadway at any given time. Many dance troupes travel throughout the country and produce excellent performances. If you prefer a great musical concert, double check to see which of your mother’s favorite celebrities will be in a city near you on the weekend of Mother’s Day.
Last but certainly not least, tangible gifts like gift baskets, stunning floral arrangements and jewelry are special gifts for any mother on this special day. Mothers day gift baskets are wonderful options because they come filled with tons of unexpected items. Floral arrangements are intentionally beautiful and are meant to be that way. They’ll easily light up the room and add elegance. If your mother is a fan of expensive jewelry, consider purchasing a lovely diamond necklace or a breathtaking pair of jeweled earrings.
