Out-of-the Box Mother’s Day Tips and Ideas You Probably Never Considered
Aside from bottomless mimosas, booking massages, and boxes of MD GLAM, these thoughtful tips and unique ideas will make Mom feel super special and deservingly spoiled.
This Sunday is Mother’s Day. With temps starting to (finally) rise and flowers beginning to bloom, what better month than to celebrate the most special woman in your life – your mom! When we contemplate about all the different, fun, and caring ways to wow the moms in our lives and show them how very much they means to us, the typical Mother’s Day ideas come to mind: serving her favorite breakfast/brunch in bed (following a much-deserved sleep-in, of course), booking a massage appointment or full, all-inclusive spa day, sending a bouquet of beautiful flowers with a box of her favorite candy or chocolate, or just letting Mom kick back while chilling on the couch eating a box of Bon Bon’s and binge-watching all of her favorite shows. And while all these ideas are the tried-and-true Mother’s Day gift go-to’s, we’ve compiled a list of five, fun, and unexpected ideas to make the matriarch of your family feel extra appreciated, loved, and special.
Create a Collage
Channel your inner schoolchild and get crafty with a custom collage creation featuring all her favorite family pictures. You can even have the final masterpiece professionally framed to match Mom’s décor. Finishing touch tip: attach a handwritten note to express how much you love her. (P.S. Practice your penmanship beforehand!)
Give a Green Thumbs Up
If Mom is an avid gardener, what better way than to surprise her with a few extra seedings of her favorite flowers, fruits, herbs, or veggies added to her growing garden?
Be a Class Act
Attend an arts and craft class, a flower arrangement class, or get tipsy with a wine and painting class and get a stroke of creativity coupled with some laughs and silliness.
Plan a Weekend-long Getaway or a Beach-filled Staycation
Depending on your budget, whisk Mom away for a weekend-long getaway in a city she’s been looking to visit and book accommodations at a cozy, quaint bed and breakfast for the perfect mother-daughter trip. If getting away isn’t a possibility, plan a daylong excursion to a nearby city or town and take in all the sights and sounds the city has to offer. While they’re, drop into an art museum or grab a bite at a causal café. If you live close to the coast, slip on the swimsuits and head to the beach to soak up the sun, sand, and sea with a beach bag full of snacks, sweets, and refreshing sips in tow. And, don’t forget to slather your MD GLAM Sunshout 50 SPF before your sunny getaway and re-apply every two hours.
Blow Her Away with a Luxurious Hair and Makeup Appointment at the Salon
Very little comes close to making any mom feel like a million bucks like a bouncy, beautiful blowout from the salon. Bonus points: gift her a total beauty day with a professional makeup application followed by a glamorous mother-daughter photo shoot that’ll make her feel like the star she is.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg! There are countless, “out-of-the-box” ideas that will make Mom’s special day fun and unforgettable. And, don’t forget to gift her with the beauty of healthy, gorgeous, glowing skin with the MD GLAM skincare essentials created by celebrity plastic surgeon and skincare guru Dr. Cat.
