Every year, we want to do something special to make sure all the moms in our life know how important they are. And this year is no exception. We’ve been busy behind the scenes dreaming up 10 creative ways to honor mom this year that are sure to delight and surprise. We hope these ideas help inspire you to make this year’s Mother’s Day magical and memorable.
1. Send Flowers - Of course we had to start with our favorite way to say I love you! Did you know we now offer a monthly subscription service called the Uplifting Florals Club? It takes just 3 easy steps to sign up, and we’ll automatically send mom fresh, seasonal flowers every month so you can let her know how much she means to you all year round. We also have three beautifully themed Designer’s Choice offerings to make her day as bright and beautiful as she is.
2. Cook a Family Recipe
Every family has a recipe that gets passed down from generation to generation. Why not celebrate Mother's Day this year by teaching the little ones in the family the secrets to making Mom’s favorite?
3. Set Up a Virtual Walk With Her Best Friend
Surprise Mom with a video call from her bestie and let the two of them take a virtual walk together. Think of someone who she has a special connection with or someone she hasn’t been able to see in a while to make it even more memorable.
4. Have a Cleaning Party (Without Mom)
Do you know what moms really love? Time alone and a clean house they didn’t have to sweep, mop, or dust themselves. When asked what they wanted most this year for Mother’s Day, 27% of moms said alone time was at the top of their list. So this year, let mom do her own thing while the family gathers for a cleaning party!
5. Have a Self-Care Day for Her at Home
This year, moms who would ordinarily appreciate a gift card to an actual spa might enjoy a relaxing day of self-care. There are myriad ways to treat mom to a spa day without leaving the house. Have the kids help pamper her with a relaxing massage, a new nail color, a fun sheet mask for her face, hands, and feet, or a fragrant shampoo treatment.
6. Host a Virtual Brunch With Her Favorite Foods and Games
Try ordering in from mom’s favorite restaurant and eat with friends and family via Zoom or FaceTime. It’ll feel like an extra treat because there’s no cooking or cleanup. If the weather is nice, make it a backyard picnic where she gets to sit back and be waited on all day.
7. Play Mother’s Day Trivia
This is great if you’ve got a big family with grandparents, aunts and cousins. Create a set of questions about all the moms in your family ahead of time (Where was she born? What’s her favorite food?), then schedule a Zoom or FaceTime call with any faraway family members.
8. Make a Video or Slideshow Celebrating Mom
Ask everyone in the family to choose a few pictures or videos that capture what they love about mom, then have one person pull it into a slideshow or video. You don’t need fancy software to do it, you can create slideshows and videos with free software online or even PowerPoint.
9. Put Together a Special Memento Box
It’s the perfect year to make a time capsule memento box. Whether it's a shoebox or a container from your latest Amazon shipment, any box that closes will work. Let kids cover it with drawings and doodles or wrap it like a gift, then fill it with notes, trinkets, pictures, and memories of mom and Mother’s Day 2021.
10. Make Mom a Homemade Coupon Book
