How to Celebrate Mom – And Not Just on Mother’s Day!


It’s no secret – motherhood is tough. With all the time and love each mother dedicates to her children, moms deserve celebration every day for being superheroes. With Mother’s Day upon us, it’s the perfect time to reflect on why Mother’s Day is an annual event in the first place, and how to show love and support for mom, who is likely the first influential woman in your life. Here are some ways to celebrate mom on Mother’s Day and throughout the year.

Show Your Appreciation

What is a better way for your mom to feel loved than to show your appreciation for her? While many already do this for Mother’s Day with gifts and cards, keep that appreciation going well after Mother’s Day.

Showing her your gratitude doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive either. It can be as simple as sending a text or making the effort to phone your mom every week to show your appreciation for her.

Also, the next time you head home to visit your family, relieve some stress from your mom’s shoulders by offering to make a meal for the family. Or, the next time you go out for lunch or dinner with your mom, take care of the bill. Doing little things that show acts of appreciation won’t go unnoticed and will make your mom feel all the better!

Do Something Fun and Unique with Her

While Mother’s Day is normally a celebration with the whole family, use it for one-on-one time with mom. Whether it’s before or after Mother’s day, doing something fun and unique with your mom will make it special.

A spa day, for example, is the perfect excuse to not only spend quality time with your mom but also get in a little bit of pampering. Another fun thing to do with mom is dying your hair together, if you do so. As your mom is most likely to have a traditional hair color such as brown or blonde, adding a fun shade of hair color to both of your hairs will be an experience your mom will never forget.

If you really want to do something different, plan a weekend getaway for you and your mom. It’s a great way to get in some mother-daughter bonding time, while also enjoying the luxury of relaxation. No matter what you decide to do, planning a fun activity with mom will give you both memories for a lifetime. And she’s sure to appreciate your thoughtfulness!

Celebrate Mom with Something Homemade

We all made greeting cards and presents for our moms as children, right? So why not continue the trend and show off your more artistic side to your mom as an adult? Sure, some of us are more crafty than others. But it’s making the effort to do something homemade for mom that she will cherish for many years to come. There are luckily so many Mother’s Day DIY gift ideas out there, so no matter how crafty you are or aren’t, there’s an option available for everyone.

A few DIY gifts for Mother’s Day are:

  • A crocheted blanket
  • Homemade piece of jewelry
  • Homemade body scrub

Making a homemade gift can be a great present for Mother’s Day. But if you’ve already gotten her gift then consider giving her something DIY after the day has passed. It might even mean more to your mom that you gave her something handmade with it being Mother’s Day.

However you decide to show her appreciation, just making the effort will make your mom feel like the rockstar she is!
