Sure, cards and flowers are nice but why not make it a unique Mother's Day that Mom won't soon forget? Show your appreciation by planning ahead and spending some much needed quality time together. With a little prep and creativity, you can create wonderful memories for years to come.
Plan a picnic. Weather permitting, avoid crowded restaurants and take Mom to a local park or beach for a quiet and enjoyable meal. Assemble her favorite lunch menu, packed neatly in a basket. If you don't cook, take-out works just fine. Don't forget the wine!
Visit a museum. Take in the sights at a local exhibit for a fun cultural experience you both will remember. Afterward, treat her to lunch at a nearby café.
Host a brunch. Plan a festive buffet for two or better yet, for the whole family to enjoy. Create a lovely tablescape and present Mom with a beautiful bouquet to double as your centerpiece. Browse our selection of grocery coupons to take advantage of valuable savings. Be sure to have a mimosa ready for her arrival!
Create a garden. Visit a local flower market and have Mom pick out some beautiful blooms to take home. Then spruce up her garden by planting them for her when you return. Take it a step further by weeding, mulching and watering the flowerbed while she takes a well-deserved break.
Spa day. A no-brainer Mother's Day gift that will leave her feeling refreshed. Go all out with a gift of an hour long massage at her favorite spa. While she's busy being pampered, treat yourself to a quick mani/pedi! Check sites like Groupon for deals and special offers.
Wine tasting. Visit a local vineyard to sip a little wine and even tour the grounds. Remember to splurge on a bottle for her to take home.
Take a hike. If Mom enjoys the great outdoors, pack some trail mix and water bottles and go explore a local nature preserve. There is no better way to catch up (and get some exercise) than taking a long walk together.
