5 Creative Ways to Make Mom’s Day

All our lives, our mothers have been our biggest cheerleaders and our most ardent allies. Want to go beyond the traditional Mother’s Day greeting card and flowers this year? Here are some creative ways to celebrate mom on her special day.

  1. Write a beautiful letter to her. Whether you are young and still at home with mom, or grown with your own children, you likely have many examples of the ways that your mother is special. The letter needn’t be long, but it should be personal and specific. Not sure where to start? Sometimes creating a themed list can loosen those creative juices and get your writing flowing. List the ways she’s helped you over the years; her delicious recipes; or most quotable quips and sayings that have saved you/inspired you/made you smile. She’ll likely want to save this letter, so write it on pretty stationery, such as the Anthony Letter Sheet.

  2. Plant flowers. Cut flowers from the florist are lovely, but try something different and give her a living plants she can enjoy this summer or all year long. Help her set up a container garden, filled with tomato plants or herbs. Create a window box filled with colorful annuals. Research native plants that grow in your area that attract special wildlife, such as butterflies or hummingbirds.
  3. Shhhhh….kidnap her and take her on a picnic.┬áTell her to be ready at a certain time for an “outdoor adventure.” Pack a picnic, and bring her to a pretty natural area or park for dining al fresco. Bonus points if you go for a walk or bike ride. Remember to take a selfie with her, then put the photo in a pretty frame, such as the Mother’s Day Picture Frame.

  4. Bake together. Even if you use a boxed mix and store-bought frosting, you can create a pretty layer cake or mini cupcakes. Don’t forget the sprinkles. This is especially fun with little kids. Serve cupcakes or cookies on the Valentina Cutting Board personalized with her initial.

  5. Donate or volunteer to help women. Sometimes the most meaningful gifts are the ones we spend in service to others. Sign up to volunteer at a food pantry or shelter. Knit baby caps or quilt baby blankets for drug addicted or sick babies. Ask your community’s women’s shelter what they need and go shopping for sanitary supplies or clothing.
