Fun and Creative Activities to Celebrate Mother’s Day

Dedicate the Day to Doing What She Loves

If you’re wracking your brain trying to come up with a million different ideas for what to do on Mother’s Day, a word of advice – don’t overthink it. Moms spend so much time looking out for everyone else, making sure that all is accounted for and everything is running smoothly. Somehow they manage to remember every nitty gritty detail, all while keeping up with the countless school activities, play dates, soccer practices and little league games. And she does this all so flawlessly and consistently, as though it’s second nature to her. Which is why it’s so important to always appreciate the amazing things she does and give her proper recognition for routinely, and readily, keeping everything on track. And with the constant hustle and bustle of the day to day, it’s no surprise that the best gift you could give her is a day spent enjoying the simple pleasures in life. So, without stressing about how to celebrate Mother’s Day this year, simply consider her favorite things to do for fun and dedicate the day to doing that.

Prepare a Picnic in the Park

Mother’s Day conveniently falls in spring, one of the most beautiful and scenic seasons of the year, making it ideal to include an outdoor activity in the day’s plan. Nothing promotes a more peaceful and relaxed state of mind quite like spending time outside, soaking up some sun, unwinding under a tree and taking in the refreshing sounds of nature. Pamper mom with a planned picnic, providing the perfect way to enjoy a pleasant day in the park. Remember to pack the essentials, such as sunscreen, park games, a picnic blanket, basket, and a few favorite snacks and items for lunch. It’s important to pick elements that can be eaten and enjoyed with ease while sitting on a picnic blanket. A classic cheese and cracker combo is always a reliable recommendation, made even easier when you opt for a soft spreadable cheese or a buttery block of baby swiss. Bring along your favorite box of crackers to pair, and for an extra superior snack, snag some savory sausage or smokehouse meats to top off the gourmet picnic. Mom will be thrilled with the tranquil treatment of being able to enjoy quality time away from the chaos and commotion of everyday life.

Host a Brunch

Moms seem to almost always assume the role of the host for every occasion, holiday and dinner party. However, this is no easy task and can be extremely exhausting. This Mother’s Day, takeover her role and surprise her with something special. The best start to any Mother’s Day is to spoil her by letting her sleep in, a seemingly foreign concept to most moms. While she enjoys some much needed and well deserved z’s, fetch the rest of the family to help pitch in with the plan to produce the perfect brunch. She’ll be blown away with the surprise feast to start the day. Ensure a complete brunch spread delivery with a full selection of scrambled eggs, mouthwatering meats, popular pastries, baked breads, fresh fruit and her favorite juice. Most importantly, make sure to get a fresh pot of hot coffee ready for as soon as she wakes up.

Reserve Some Time for R&R Relief

Give her some time to rest and recover this Mother’s Day with a well-deserved day that’s dedicated to doting on her. Schedule a serene spa session or a mellow massage to help her relax and rejuvenate. Her unwavering devotion and constant support for everyone else deserves to be returned with equal recognition, and what better way than to spoil her with something special. Extend her spa relaxation and recovery time with some gifts and goodies that continue to pamper her post treatment. Light some candles, draw her a warm bubble bath and top it off with a few perfect products to keep her mind at ease and peace.

Make it Memorable for Mom

Whatever the activity of choice ends up being for the day, make sure it’s one that will be most meaningful and memorable for mom. There aren’t many days dedicated to celebrating her and it’s important to take full advantage of every moment to return the selflessness and thoughtfulness that she bestows on everyone else, every single day. Shower her with special surprises, fill the day with her favorite fun things to do, give her sweet gifts and goodies, and above all, show her how much she’s loved and appreciated, not just on Mother’s Day, but every day.

Unique Mother’s Day Gifts She’ll Love

Give Mom the Thoughtful Gift She Deserves

No matter how old, young, tall, short, this or that, there’s one extraordinary thing we all share – the amazing individual who gave us the gift of life – mom. And, considering that her bringing us into the world is not an easy task to repay, it’s important that we take full advantage of the one day a year that’s dedicated to celebrating her. This Mother’s Day, make mom feel extra special with something unique that shows her how meaningful she is to you. To help make this Mother’s Day one to remember, we put together a few of our favorite gift ideas, from custom creations to personalized presents, that will fill her heart with love, happiness, and joy.

Create a Custom DIY Gift Basket

From the very first art project we ever did as kids to our most recent masterpiece, her unwavering pride and admiration for everything we’ve ever created has made her our biggest fan since day one. So, evoke some of that same excitement and enthusiasm from her this Mother’s Day with a self-assembled DIY gift basket, handpicked and created by you. A thoughtful do-it-yourself option is the best way to show her how much you know and love her with a custom creation, filled with special surprises that are uniquely hers! Here’s how to select the individual items to help create an authentic ‘made with love’ feel.

Fill it With Her Favorite Foods

For the moms with food palates to match the pros, here are a few gourmet goodies that will speak right to her heart. We stand by the notion that a gift basket isn’t complete without each of the following components:

  • Some savor nuts
  • A flavorful cheese
  • A tasty meat option
  • And of course, something sweet

This fool proof approach ensures a beautiful and balanced basket that’s complete with the personalized picks that moms prefer.

Step 1: Select the Snacks

Begin by selecting a salty snack. Small snacks and finger foods provide a variety of wonderful uses that moms love. You’ll find everything including tasty appetizers for hosting a party, accommodating sides for any meal, and perfect post meal palate cleansers. A few of our favorites are found in these deluxe nut options and premium popcorn packs, full of flavor and variety. And don’t miss the selection of fine fruits to find something that will add a little extra boost for a bountiful basket.

Step 2: Choose a Cheese

Cheese, perhaps the backbone of any well-rounded gift basket, is an essential element due to the variety of textures and tastes it offers. It’s important to determine complexity, consistency and character when making your cheese selection, as each type delivers different flavors and uses. Our selection of artisanal cheeses has something to suit every mom, including sharp aged cheddars, soft creamy spreads, buttery baby swisses, gorgeous gourmet goudas, and so many more!

Step 3: Mix in a Meat

Moving on to the meat, it’s important to keep in mind the different tastes when determining the best fit for your basket. You’ll want to make the selection based on which of the flavorful options will best complement the existing elements in the basket. We recommend starting with our collection of savory sausages and smokehouse meats. With every item seasoned to perfection and slow cooked for a perfect smoky flavor, these are guaranteed to be a hit with Mom.

Step 4: Select Something Sweet

Lastly, top it all off with one of mom’s favorite sweet treats that she can’t resist. Whether she prefers a batch of rich and creamy fudge, a premium box of decadent chocolates, or an assorted variety of fun and fruity candies, these tantalizing options offer something sugary for every mom.

Assemble it All

Now that each part of your present has been picked, sit back and relax while it gets delivered right to your door! In the meantime, get your creative juices flowing. As soon as everything arrives, you’ll need to assemble it all. The best way to wrap it all together is in a large basket. Fill the basket with each of the gifts, spacing them out proportionately. Fill any large empty spaces or gaps with colorful tissue paper, keeping everything securely in place, and complete your creation with a fancy ribbon or large bow. She’ll be overwhelmed with joy as she opens her gift, full of the delicious delicacies she loves most, and custom created by you.

Make it Meaningful With Something Personal

Another great gift idea is to give her something special that’s made specifically for her. A personalized present not only gives her a gift she loves, it’s even more meaningful by the fact that it’s made exclusively for her with her name on it. It becomes so easy to fall into the habit of giving the same gifts, year after year, that are frequently forgotten about. Surprise her this year with the sweet sentiment of a personalized gift. Here are a few of the most popular products that can be personalized just for mom.

Giving a Personalized Gift She Loves

When choosing a personalized gift for mom, it’s important to start with something near and dear to her heart. This assortment of meaningful mementoes is filled with collectables that mom will cherish for years to come. Watch as she proudly displays family photos in a personalized frame, or cooks up her signature recipe in a custom casserole dish. If you still don’t know what item to opt for, our compilation packs are exploding with generous portions of delicious treats and is sure to be such a hit!

Show Mom How Much You Care

As Mother’s Day quickly approaches, let’s all remember the important reasons to celebrate mom. Shower her with the love and appreciation that she deserves and make the day as special as she is to you. And even though we can’t come close to repaying her for everything she’s done, surprise her with sweet sentiments and gifts of gratitude. So whether you choose a creative DIY gift basket, a personalized gift, or some other memorable Mother’s Day gift, the most meaningful items are the ones that come from the heart and let her know how amazing she is. After all, she’s the reason you’re here in the first place.
