Simple Ways To Make Mother's Day Special

    Published on Aug 21 2016

    Mother's Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate everything your mom has done for you. You don't have to break the bank or pull out all the stops to make Mom feel appreciated. Here are a few simple things you can do to make your mom's Mother's Day special:

    1. Make a memory book.
    Moms have documented every moment of our lives and a way to make her day feel special is by creating a scrapbook of memories for her. Try to get as many photos of her in different stages of her life as a mother. Get more creative by printing out some of your favorite pieces of advice from her or a recipe she passed on to you or quotes from your family on what makes her a wonderful mom. It's the ultimate ode to the woman who brought you into this world.

    2. Arrange a get-together of all moms in your family.
    Why only celebrate your mom on Mother's Day when you can celebrate all the moms in your big family. Plan out a Mother's Day celebration by gathering the moms in all generations — your lola, your titas, and your cousins. It's also a way to celebrate all the things that the moms have learned from generation to generation. Here are some great ideas for what to prepare on this day.

    3. Create a "favor coupon booklet."
    Our moms have taken care of the whole family ever since and she could definitely use a break. Get creative and print out a coupon booklet for your mom where each coupon is good for different favors such as, washing the dishes, cleaning the living room, walking the dog, cooking dinner, or even cooking her a special meal.

    4. Exchange vows as mother and child.
    You're bond as mother and child was made ever since she gave you life. Sometimes, you forget to tell each other how much you mean to one another. So on Mother's Day, remind each other how special you are in each others life by having this small ceremony with the whole family.

    No matter what you give or do on Mother's Day, remember that no gift is too big or too small for your Mom. Spending quality time together and making happy memories is the gift she appreciates the most.
