3 Unique Ideas to Help Celebrate Mother's Day

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you might be wondering how best to celebrate your mom. You might think there is no way to show your mom just how much she means to you and thank her for all she’s done for you over the years. After all, you quite literally wouldn’t be here without her.

Don’t stress! There are plenty of creative ways to show your gratitude for your mother. Create personalized experiences such as taking a class or going on a trip together, plant flowers in the garden together, or simply spend quality time with your mother. Remember that the gestures don’t need to be big, they just need to come from the heart.

  1. Celebrate with a unique, personalized gift.

Spoil your mom with a gift chosen just for her. That might mean giving her a new book, that sweater she’s been eyeing, her favorite bottle of wine, a basket full of spa and wellness goods, or a piece of customized jewelry. This also could include gifting your mom an experience together, such as a spa day, a cooking class, or a day of pottery making. Spend time finding something that fits her tastes and shows her that you are thinking of her.

If you decide to go with a piece of jewelry, why not go sustainable? Avoid the potential of buying something that includes controversial gems and be confident that the necklace or earrings you gift your mother will be sustainable and conflict-free. Jewelry companies, like Agape Diamonds, create one-of-a-kind jewelry from synthetic diamonds (also known as lab grown diamonds). You can ensure that every purchase from Agape is ethically sourced and has just as much sparkle as any natural diamond would. If you have any reservations, read through Agape Diamonds reviews to ensure that you are purchasing a high-quality piece of jewelry. This Mother’s Day, buy your mother a handcrafted, timeless necklace, ring, or pair of earrings sparkling with synthetic diamonds and set in classic white gold that she can cherish for years to come.

  1. Treat your mom to her favorite flowers.

Give your mom a bouquet of her favorite flowers this Mother’s Day, a classic gift you can’t go wrong with. For a bit of flower inspiration, explore Mother’s Day flower colors meaning to help find the bouquet that bests represents your mom. If your mom lights up every room she walks into and embodies happiness, yellow might be the color for her. Buy her yellow roses or sunflowers, maybe accented by lavender and other purple flowers. Does compassion and unconditional love come to mind when you think of your mom? If yes, an arrangement of pink flowers, such as roses, carnations, tulips, and peonies might best fit your mom. Or, if your mom is outdoorsy and spends her time in nature and in the garden, pastels flowers such as orchids and lilies, with lots of greenery will make for the perfect bouquet. With a bit of inspiration, personalize your mother’s favorite flower to make an extra special bouquet this year. To make the gift even more personal, consider buying some flowers to plant in the garden together, rather than buying your mom a bouquet of flowers. This will make for quality time together and create something you both can look back on and enjoy together.

  1. Surprise your mom with a getaway.

Spending quality time with your mom is one of the best gifts you can give her, for Mother’s Day, or any day of the year. Why not plan a short getaway to create new memories together? After a year of staying home, everyone could use a bit of adventure in their life. Traveling during the COVID-19 pandemic isn’t the easiest, as there are many travel restrictions in place, but it certainly isn’t impossible either. Regardless of where you go, always remember to comply by policies recommended by the CDC, including practicing social distancing and wearing masks, if you do travel.

Maybe you feel more comfortable taking a day trip somewhere. This way you don’t have to hop on an airplane and can still enjoy travel without having to adventure too far. Take a drive along the coast and set up a picnic on the beach or in a mountain valley. Hit up small towns with boutique shops, unique restaurants, history, and maybe even a winery. Or, do some research and maybe further outside of town and make a long weekend out of it. Whether you explore a national park, go winery hopping in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, or check out the history and music of Memphis, find an experience that both you and your mom can bond over. You can even take a one-of-a-kind Mississippi trip, and discover country music history, civil rights history, breweries, and statuesque homes together. In the end, the destination doesn’t matter that much and rather it is the time you spend with your mom that will be remembered the most.
