Mother's Day Celebrations in New Jersey
Tips for making Mother's Day 2017 a special day for Mom
Mothers Day is a time of recognizing how special Mom is and for making it a very special day for her.
This year Mother's Day will be celebrated on Sunday, May 14, 2017.
It's a time for saying "I Love You", for breakfast in bed, flowers, cards, brunch out to a family restaurant, or for a family gathering at home.
Ideas For Mothers Day Gifts
Prepare a Meal for Mom - Do it at your house and take it to mom so that she will not feel the need to help clean-up.
Create a Home Made Collage - Get the whole family involved and include memories, quotes, and photos to create a lasting remembrance of of years as a mother.
Create Your Own Flower Arrangement - Even if you live in a city you can do this by collecting leaves, twigs, or going to a craft shop for items to include.
Clean Mom's House - Get some help from other members of the family and make it a collective event. There is always something that needs maintenance --- fix the broken shelf, appliance, a chair. Organize her coupons, her closets, etc.
Donate to a Charity in Mom's Name. This not only gives her recognition for being associated with a worthy cause, it passes down a lesson to the younger children, and supports others in need. Children's charities are always worthy causes.
Bake Mom a Cake - Baking Mom her favorite cake using your own time makes this a special gift
You can give your Mom the day off and make her day special in your own way by taking her out to brunch or for dinner.
If mother loves spa treatments, or if getting away for Mother's day weekend is more to her liking, treat her to an overnight stay in a hotel with spa.
Ideas For Things To Do For Yourself (Mom) For Mothers Day
Single Moms' With Young Kids - Join up with other single moms and their kids for a fun event that every one can enjoy.
Create a Journal of the Past Year - Reflect on your year as a mom, by writing a letter to your self about the ups and downs of parenting that you experienced in the past year.
Sleep Later - Give your husband and kids the opportunity to do something you want. They might even extend the event to include breakfast in bed.
Spend Some Time Away From the House . After you’ve celebrated your day with the family, get a few hours alone to do something for yourself like meeting up with a friend of getting out to a store to shop.
