If there’s one person on earth who we owe our very existence to, it is our mom. Mothers are truly special beings who carried us safely for 9 months in their womb and then paved the way for our existence in the world.
A day dedicated to her is totally worth it because this ‘superwoman’ of ours surely deserves it. So, as you start planning on how to make her feel special on Mother’s Day, we thought of coming up with a small list to help you out.
Prepare a Buffet of her Favourite Meals for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Throughout the year, your mom spends her time at home planning your menu every day, which you enjoy hogging and posting on social media all the time. So, it’s time to reverse the role for a day to make your mother feel special. Plan a menu with her favourite dishes and create a full-course meal for her to devour. We bet you have her genes, so don’t worry about the cooking part.
Create a Story-telling Photo album with all the Pictures from her Childhood till Now
Get in touch with all your aunts, uncles and grandparents, and collect pictures of her childhood and college days, and get the remaining pictures of her post-marriage life from the albums at home. Write down the stories related to each of the pictures, and create a photo album. Reminiscing all those good old memories in the treasure album will definitely bring a smile on her face.
Surprise her by doing a Special stage Performance which is Solely dedicated to her
Write down a beautiful song on your own for her, or perform a famous movie song which can be dedicated to her. Recently, Sunfeast Mom’s Magic took this amazing initiative of taking in ideas from people on how to surprise their mothers, and they finalized on executing this idea. The participants got to perform with Bollywood musical trio Shankar, Ehsaan & Loy. You can try something like this too, actually even at home!
Work on a Home-Decor Project that she has been Dreaming of for a long time
Most of the times, it is mom who does the project planning at home. But on Mother’s Day give her a break and take on the role of the decision maker at home. It could be a vegetable garden, a mini-library or even an attic revamp, give your home a makeover and surprise your mom. This activity is going to be time-consuming but seeing the look of happiness on your mother’s face is going to be totally worth it.
Scoot her away on a Weekend trip to a Beautiful, Relaxing location away from the City
Pack her bags and pick her up from her workplace, and scoot her away to a relaxing destination which she will love. You can do this like a family trip, only mom-dad trip or even a solo trip (if mom agrees to that). Since her usual weekends are always packed with stuff at home, this will be a great time to unwind.
Team up with your dad and siblings to clean up the house and finish her to-do list for the day
This is pretty do-able, especially if you forget to plan something special for your mom on Mother’s Day. Pick up the broom early in the morning and sweep the whole house, cook or order meals, wash and dry the clothes, tidy up the rooms and just spend quality time together. The idea is to make her feel like a queen because she is the queen of the home after all. Read More…
