Celebrating Your Mother
Your Mom is one the most important women in your life. So this Mother’s Day, treat her to a surprise celebration. Here are some heartfelt and affordable ways to honor the upcoming Mother’s Day that are other than the classic bouquet of flowers or box of chocolates.
1. Classic Game Night
For a great group activity, invite family over for a night of backgammon, Scrabble, chess, and Yahtzee. Mom will love having the house full of laughter and teasing again.
Spend the day with Mom and learn how to make all those dishes that she cooks so well. Meat loaf, fried chicken, spaghetti… learn all the subtle secrets of pinches and smidgens to cook like the pro.
Bring over new photo albums and scrapbooks to start going through Mom’s old pictures with her. As you put the books together, you’ll create new lifelong memories while listening to her retell old stories.
Head outside with your green thumbs for the day. Bring plants and tools to get dirty while planting with your mom. Every day after, she will smile as she looks out over her new blooms of bougainvillea or roses.
5. Help Around The House
Dedicate the day to helping Mom with all the items on her at-home to-do list. Whether you’re changing the printer’s ink cartridge, cleaning out the garage or taking old clothes to Deseret Industries or Goodwill, your mom will be endlessly thankful that you came over to lend a hand and spend quality time.
