This is your friendly reminder that Mother’s Day is only 9 days away! Whether you have a perfect surprise planned or a Mother’s Day card and gift wrapped, at the end of the day, remember you don’t always need to splurge on your mama to show her just how much you love and care for her. The little thoughtful things go a long way! Today, we are rounding up ten ways that you can celebrate your mom this Mother’s Day without breaking the bank!
1. Give her a call
Have you called your mom in a while? Why not schedule a time that you can both sit down and chat, whether that’s over the phone or on Facetime with a bevie in hand.
2. Send a heartfelt text
If you can’t catch your mom on the phone for Mother’s Day, why not send her a heartfelt text message to tell her how much you truly care! We are positive this will have your mama grinning from ear to ear.
3. Make your favourite meal
There is nothing more comforting than coming home to a meal prepared by your mom. Why not return the favor and make her your favourite dish? If you’re unsure where to start, scoop up the Fraiche Food Full Hearts cookbook (currently 40% off) and pick a meal to make together.
4. Help her with her garden
If your mom is an avid gardener, there is a good chance that she would love nothing more than some help weeding or even some help with planting new seeds. What are you waiting for? Get in there and get your hands dirty! 🤪
5. Plan a virtual workout
If your mama is a fitness enthusiast, why not plan a virtual (or socially distanced) workout the two of you can enjoy? Stretch things out in a yoga session or sweat it out with a quick and dirty HITT workout.
6. Send snail mail
Is there anything better than receiving a handwritten note in the mail? Why not make or buy your mom a Mother’s Day card and write a sentimental note telling her just how much you care!
7. Plan a picnic
Kick things up a notch and plan out a little picnic lunch or brunch for the two of you to enjoy surrounded by beautiful scenery (mimosas in hand, of course 😉)!
8. Get some fresh air
Weather pending, find an outdoor trail that the two of you can enjoy. Spend this one-on-one time catching up and bonding!
9. Make a photo album
Since we don’t tend to print photos out anymore, it would be so sweet to have a few of your favourites printed out and framed or added to a cute little book.
10. Help with chores
Have you ever wondered how your mom does it all? With a back-to-back schedule, they always find time to clean the house, organize dinner, grocery shop, and so much more. Why not lend your mama a helping hand this Mother’s Day and help her tackle that to-do list? After all, two is better than one!
Well, there you have it! Our top 10 ways to show your mom or guardian just how much you care. In the comments below, let us know how YOU celebrate your mama!
