Bring your mom to a spa to have either a relaxing Swedish massage, coffee body scrub or manicure and pedicure (perhaps even all of the above if your budget allows). She needs time to unwind and enjoy a relaxing “me” time since your mom is always busy taking care of the family.

Travelling is one of the best gifts you can give to your mom. If your budget is not limited, take her to a trip to the beach, the mountains or go on a road trip to a nearby travel destination. Perhaps bring her to luxury resort or join a sightseeing tour at a local destination or a country she wants to visit ever since you can remember.

Dinner Cruise

Do something unique instead of the usual dinner at a restaurant or hotel. Have dinner on a cruise as you enjoy devouring sumptuous meals with the relaxing ambiance of the ocean and the city lights. Even better if you can have sunset dinner cruise so she will love the view of the sun setting while dining.

You don’t have to spend so much and as they say, “It’s the thought that counts”. Make her a scrapbook full of photos of your family. Gather photos from travels, celebrations, dinners, etc. and add some decorations like stickers, ribbons, ticket stubs or whatever you feel like adding. She will for sure love it and feel touched by the sweet gesture.

Cooking Class

If your mom loves to cook, enroll her in a cooking class so she can master more delicious dishes. She will also meet other mothers during the class. It is a good way to destress and enjoy her time while learning new dishes and having new friends.

Treat your mom to a shopping spree and let her choose anything she wants to buy whether it’s clothes, shoes, bags or beauty products. If your budget is not a problem, then she will have fun treating herself to things that she loves.

Let her take the day off and do the household chores instead for Mother’s Day. Clean the house, take out the garbage, do the laundry and do the other things she does everyday. For sure, she will appreciate it and will have time to relax instead doing things she doesn’t get to do because she’s so busy at home.
