Do you know what the best synonyms are for mothers? The first is “Super Women”. The word “angel” comes a close second because of their protective nature. There is nothing they can’t do and the love they give is enough to last for at least 7 long lives. They are experts at multitasking and possess a wealth of knowledge.
That’s why the entire world dedicates one day of the year to all the mothers in the world as a way to thank them for their unconditional love, selflessness, support, and kindness. In fact, motherhood should be celebrated every day of the year. However, on this special occasion, you can make your mamma feel cherished and loved by doing something special for her.

You can’t be physically present and mentally absent and call it “quality time”. It’s not. You have to cherish every single second you spend with her.

2. Plan a special activity together
Plan a special activity that she loves. It can be anything. If she loves to paint, then take her out to museums. If she loves mountains, then go on a hike with her or spend the night camping in the woods with the entire family. Start a bonfire and roast marshmallows while enjoying each other’s company.
3. Give her a thoughtful gift
Picking out thoughtful gifts for mom on Mother’s Day is an integral part of this celebration, and you just cannot skip or avoid it. It’s one of the ways to acknowledge and appreciate everything your mom does for you. If you don’t know what to buy for your mother, you can always turn to the internet for gift ideas, both inexpensive and extravagant. Whatever gift you choose, make sure it comes straight from the heart and touches her heart.
4. Cook for her
She has always cooked for you. It’s time you make her feel special by cooking her favorite meal. You could also bake her favorite dessert. Such little acts of service are a great way to let her know how much you value her.
5. Write a heartfelt letter
Write a letter describing how grateful and blessed you feel to have her as your mother. You can also become a little creative and try to write a poem for her. Use words of affirmation and remind her she’s beautiful and no other human can match up her wisdom and intellect. This little gesture will make her smile and she will be proud of having you as her child.
6. Clean the house
Give your mommy a little break and clean the house for once. You don’t have to clean and mop the entire house. Maybe just take care of a few chores so she can relax for a while on her special day. You can do things like getting groceries, doing the laundry, or making your bed.
7. Have a family game night
Family is one of the most important things in life. You need to nurture the relationships you have with your immediate family members. Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to do so by hosting a game night. You can play all board games, try your hand at indoor bowling, and indulge in the good-old game of charades.

Mothers want to feel loved as well. There’s no better way to show this love than by buying a bouquet of sweet-smelling fresh flowers. You can also get a greeting card for her and write something special in her honor.
9. Pamper her with a day out
She has been pampering you all her life. It’s time you do the same by taking her out on a spa day. Manicure, pedicure, massage, facial, and even a new haircut. Get her a spa gift card or a coupon and you can tag along with her. Also, if your wife is a new mother, this is one of the foolproof ways to make her happy.
10. Tell your mom you love her
This is the most important part of Mother’s Day. No expensive gift or grand gesture can replicate the warmth of actually saying those three precious words to her. Tell her you love her and give her a big hug.
Mothers have always created a safe, secure, and loving environment for their children to grow and thrive. They just give and give without expecting anything in return. Do something special for her this Mother’s Day and take loads of pictures together.
