Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12 and we’re so excited to celebrate all the beautiful mamas in our lives. Moms are real-life superheroes. If anyone deserves a day to be pampered and spoiled, it’s definitely them. Here, we’re sharing five great ways to treat your mom this Mother’s Day that go beyond the classic flowers and box of chocolates.
Cook her a beautiful brunch spread
It’s almost impossible to snag a reservation at a restaurant on Mother’s Day. Skip all that madness and instead give the breakfast-in-bed tradition a fun twist by toasting the moms in your life with a home-cooked brunch. Go all out to show them how much they mean to you and that you value everything they do. Indulge them with a sumptuous spread complete with fruit-topped waffles, almond flour pancakes, and freshly squeezed orange juice.
Surprise her with a thoughtful gift
While you’re busy spoiling your own mama on Mother’s Day, don’t forget to share some love with the new and expecting mamas in your life. They too are working hard at making and birthing babies and nothing will make them feel more pampered and well taken care of than a thoughtful gift. Our New Mom Care Kit will do just that. It’s filled with all the natural and effective essentials they’ll need after giving birth including organic cotton overnight pads, natural feminine wipes, period panties, and sheet masks. Bonus points: It already comes packaged in a cute box.
Write your mom a letter
Whether your child is a toddler or a grown up with kids of their own, moms never get tired of hearing how much their kids love them. This year, ditch the generic Mother’s Day card from the drugstore and write mom a heartfelt letter instead. It’ll be something she treasures forever. Write it by hand on nice stationery to make it extra special. Fair warning: You might prompt some happy tears.
Have a spa day at home
Spending quality time with your kids on Mother’s Day really is the best gift. But, it’s safe to say that quality time during a spa day at home is even better. Give each other manicures and pedicures. Put on an anti-aging Collagen Sheet Mask to plump up your skin or a Vitamin C Sheet Mask to give you and your mama a nice glow while you nosh on popcorn and watch a movie. And if you’re feeling fancy, you can even splurge on at-home massages.
Mother’s Day is the time to treat your own mom and the moms in your life, but it’s also a great opportunity to nourish the mamas in your community who also deserve some TLC. Find a women’s shelter in your neighborhood and donate feminine hygiene products or donate your time and spend the day making the moms there feel special. Our partner, #HappyPeriod, has chapters across the country that are always looking for donations and volunteers.
