Creative Ways to Show Mom Some Love This Mother’s Day

Posted on 01 May, 2020

There’s no gift more special than one that comes from the heart. Whether your Weston home is shared by multiple generations or your mom lives at a distance, you can celebrate Mother’s day in special ways that show your love. Here are some ideas that will warm mom’s heart this Mother’s Day.

Create a family trivia game.
Family game nights are all the rage – both at home and online. For Mother’s Day, put a personal spin on yours by creating your own family trivia game. Everyone can get involved in designing a game with inside jokes, legendary holiday stories and long-lost relatives’ names. Surprise mom and get ready for the laughs!

Get artsy.
What mom doesn’t love handmade art from the kids? If mom’s a gardener, make handmade garden signs by painting wooden stakes or rocks. And create a wind chime by stringing buttons, beads or shells onto fishing wire, and then attach it to a wooden or metal rod. The finished product will add a special touch to your Weston home’s outdoor living area.

Or, try a virtual painting class in your backyard or living room. The kids can create a masterpiece for mom, or schedule a group class for the entire family. If you aren’t feeling your inner Picasso, consider creating a photo book instead. Pick a theme – Spring 2020 or Beach Vacations – and then spend time together perusing photos and organizing them into your visual story. Mixbook and Shutterfly are great sites to help you step by step.

Make music together.
Music is therapy for the soul. Why not create a playlist for mom with all her favorite tunes? An app like Spotify makes it easy. Or, take the music gift theme a step further with a one-on-one virtual concert of her favorite tunes played by a Guitarist on Video Call.

Personalize a puzzle.
Puzzles are a great way to bring multi-generational families together around the table. For Mother’s Day, surprise mom with a puzzle created from a favorite family photo. Order one from a site like Piczzle or Zazzle. And as a bonus, once you complete your puzzle, you can frame it and add it to your home gallery.

Share a meal.
Order grocery delivery, set up a Zoom or other video conferencing call and get to cooking together. Or, if the family is all together, take it outside with an al fresco Mother’s Day brunch in the backyard.

Give mom the spa treatment.
Treat mom to a day of pampering in the comfort of her home with a spa gift bag. Fill a basket with bubble bath, bath bombs, essential oils, candles and more treats, and deliver it right to her door.
