We love celebrating the special women in our lives and Mother’s Day (Sunday, 8 May) is no exception. So how do you go about showering your mom with the endless amounts of love and appreciation she so deserves? It’s often the most simple and thoughtful gestures that mean the most. Whether you are lucky enough to be spending the day with your mom in person (treat her like a queen!), or celebrating virtually, here are a few ideas to make it a Mother’s Day to remember:
Make a playlist of her favorite songs
Whether your mom was a flower child, a disco diva or loves country ballads, create a thoughtfully compiled playlist to show how much care. From Aretha Franklin to Adele and everything in between, pick songs that have a special meaning to mom or lyrics with sentimental value.
Capture the moment
Take a fun selfie that you can keep for years to come or re-enact an old photo from years back and frame them side-by-side for a cute keepsake. Dig out old family photos and go through them together so mom can reminisce about her growing up years and all her life adventures (before you came along!).
Help mom relax and get her glow-on with a relaxing bubble bath. Create the perfect ambience with candles, fresh flowers and turn on her favorite playlist (the one you specially created for her!). Most importantly, don’t forget that glass of bubbles! Book a visit by a masseuse or manicurist for an all-out pampering session in the comforts of her own home.

Prepare a delicious brunch or dinner
Cook one of mom’s favorite meals and set a spring table with pretty linens and gorgeous fresh flowers. Use her favorite color or flower for inspiration. Shop Fresh Flowers.
Or throw a virtual brunch, tea or cocktail party (all at once depending on the time difference!). Send mom a basket of goodies or a fun cocktail recipe in advance and settle in for a much-needed catch-up.
End the special day with at least one feel-good movie, a giant bucket of popcorn and snacks. Whether you’re looking for a great comedy, a family classic or something a bit more sentimental, here’s a list of movies to consider. Just be sure to let mom choose the movie and the snacks!
