Mother’s Day is coming up, which means that it’s high time to start thinking about how you want to celebrate. Planning the perfect celebration can be a bit stressful. After all, how are you supposed to thank your mother for everything she’s done over the years with a single celebration? It’s challenging, but not impossible. The most important thing is to pay attention to what your mom enjoys doing, and base your plans on that. To get you started, though, we’ve put together a few helpful ideas.

Visit a Museum

For families with an appreciation of the arts, a museum visit is one of our favorite ideas for Mother’s Day. It makes for not just a great activity, but a great gift as well. Rather than gift your mom something material, give her the gift of a fun family day out. 

Of course, planning a museum day does take a bit of extra legwork, but it’s no big trouble as long as you know what you’re doing. First of all, consider what your mom is interested in. A specific period of art? History? Science? Then, check the museums in your area to see if any of them tailored to your mom’s interest. If you’re able to find one, take a look at the area around it as well. Are there any other fun activities nearby? What’s the dining situation like? 

Once you have a good handle on the museum you’re visiting and the surrounding area. You can plan a full museum visit day complete with drinks, dining, and shopping if your mom would like. Giving the gift of a carefully tailored experience like this is one of the best ways to make your mom feel truly seen and cherished.

Attend a Wine Tasting

If your mom is into the finer things in life. There are few Mother’s Day ideas better than attending a wine tasting. They’re a great chance for you and your mom to expand your culinary horizons and gain a greater appreciation for the art of fine wine. You’ll learn about many types of wine, what they go well with, and how to best enjoy them. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon with good food, good drink, and good conversation. It is sure to make your mom feel more special than ever.

To get sign up for a wine tasting, you’ll first need to make sure that there are, in fact, wine tastings happening in your area. Keep in mind that because of the holiday, seats are likely to get booked up quickly. So you’ll need to act fast if you want to attend the tasting on Mother’s Day itself.

Get Crafty

For a fun at-home Mother’s Day, try doing some paper crafting with your mom. Paper crafting is an extremely popular hobby that isn’t too difficult to pick up. So whether you and your mom are total beginners or experienced crafting veterans, you can have a very special day of creativity together.

To get started, you’ll need to make a plan. Figure out a few crafts your mom may enjoy working on with you. Determine whether or not the two of you can complete them with your current level of crafting knowledge. Be sure that it’s not too difficult to avoid frustration. Once you’ve decided on a craft, (or several crafts!) put together a list of crafting supplies like premium cardstock, crafting scissors, glue, and the like. From there, it’s just a matter of getting all the supplies together, and you’re good to go! Your mother will appreciate not just the activity, but the time spent with her children as well.

Just Ask!

While it does somewhat spoil the surprise, one of the easiest ways to figure out what to do on Mother’s Day is to simply ask your mom. While grand gestures and fun experiences usually appreciated, your mom knows what she needs and wants best. Maybe she doesn’t want a museum visit or a fancy brunch. Maybe she just wants to have a simple day at home with close family and friends, or maybe she wants to try making a new recipe she found with you. Knowing exactly what your mom wants is a surefire way to make her Mother’s Day a great one, and hey, it can be nice to appreciate the simpler things in life. We hope that no matter what you decide to do, you and your family all have a very special Mother’s Day this year!
