With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to think about how you’re going to celebrate all the moms in your family! Whether it’s your own, your grandma, your wife, your sibling, your co-worker who just had a baby, or your loving neighbor, all the moms deserve a thoughtful and meaningful surprise on this special day. Check out these simple and yet amazing ideas to surprise the mom in your life on Mother’s Day!
Surprise Homemade Dinner Party
To celebrate all the moms in the family, how about making a surprise homemade lunch or dinner party? Invite all the mothers, not only your mom and grandmother, but also the in-laws, siblings, neighbors, and all the moms around you to celebrate in a fun dinner party. Prepare some delicious recipes, organize some emotional moments and voilá: the best mom celebration they’ve ever seen!
Mother’s Day Picnic
Early May is one of the best times of the year to throw a picnic. So why not organize one for Mother’s Day? Bring a picnic blanket, a basket filled with delicious dishes and a nice bottle of wine. Every mom would love it! Just make sure you check the weather beforehand and pick somewhere bug-free (or at least, bring a little mosquito repellant). With care and planning, you’ll easy throw a nice and warming picnic that will provide you plenty of time for nice conversations and memory sharing.
Mother’s Day Video
For an amazing surprise, make your mom a video to show her how much she is loved. Use a small camera or even your cell phone to record her children, siblings, husband, and all the special loved ones in her life saying things that they love about her. To make it even more special, ask your out of town relatives to record themselves and send you their thoughts for your mom, too. You can put the videos together in a simple editing on the computer (here is a free tool if you need it) and post it on YouTube or show her directly. Your mom will definitely not expect such a heartfelt demonstration of love, specially made for her.
Want an interesting and creative surprise that will bring out many emotions? Hang balloons around the house with personal, thoughtful messages written on them and add nice family photos to the mix. She’ll surely have an amazing time going through each of them! On the notes, try to be as specific as possible: think of mom’s best qualities, positive characteristics, and write all the nice things she does for you. Avoid generic phrases and try more personal messages - instead of simply writing “Happy Mother’s Day”, try adding “Thank you for being there at our soccer games” or “We love the delicious dinners you cook for us”.
For the pictures, include nice family photos and also those spontaneous ones that have funny, loving, and happy stories.
Homemade Thoughtful Gift
By making a thoughtful, homemade gift yourself, you’ll take the special day to the next level! For a simple idea, you can try making a scrapbook filled with pictures, personal notes, and memories that would bring out many emotions when opened.
