6 Ways to Give Back ... to Your Mom!
Moms are the best. They share in our joy on our best days, love us through our awkward days, and are waiting with open arms on our worst days. They give us so much and this Sunday, it’s our turn to give back! Here are 6 Ways to show your Mom some love this Mother’s Day!
- Share one of your favorite memories with her
Have a favorite family video or childhood picture that captures a great memory you had together? Take it out and take some time to remember together.
- Offer her a piece of encouragement
Moms need encouragement too! This could mean a card with a great quote, a hand written letter, or a piece of inspirational art to hang on the wall as a reminder to your mom that she is loved and appreciated! The "Primitives By Kathy" inspirational signs that we carry in both stores would be perfect. *see above*
- Take Care of HER
Think of how much of our mother’s lives have been spent taking care of us! Use this opportunity to turn the tables and do something to take care of her. Do her grocery shopping, get her car washed, clean her house, or cook her a meal! She deserves it.
- Pamper Her
Moms also deserve a little pampering! If you’re confident in your abilities, you could pamper her at home with a massage, manicures, or even a facial! If you think you’d only make her day worse by doing those things yourself, then maybe you should consider getting her an appointment with a professional.
- Spend time together but get creative!
While going out to eat is always an option for celebrating, try to be a bit more creative in the time you spend with your Mom on Mother’s Day! What does she love to do but doesn’t get to do enough? For a slow paced evening, you could plan a movie night with one of her favorite films and plenty of her favorite snacks. Want to do something more adventurous? Maybe you could go to the Farmer’s Market together, pick out some fresh food, and cook a yummy meal together. Stop in and say Hi to us at 5 Pound Apparel while you’re at it!
- Say Thank You
While Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to do fun and thoughtful things for your Mom, sometimes, an intentional “Thank You” can mean more than any spa kit or bouquet of flowers!
