Mother's Day in New Jersey: Top things to do to make it a special day for Mom

This year Mother's Day will be celebrated on Sunday, May 9, 2021.

It's a time for saying "I Love You", for breakfast in bed, flowers, cards,  or for a family gathering at home.

NOTE: In response to this unprecedented crisis that is affecting our health concerns, all aspects of lives, and in particular with all New Jersey Leisure events and activities, we have removed events that we know have been cancelled.
With this in mind, we have listed a number of tips that will not be impacted by mandated closings.
Nonetheless, our viewers are advised to check in with each of the venues, activities, and events that are listed in our webpages to ensure that they have not closed or postponed.

Ideas For Mothers Day Gift Ideas

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.

Your favorite restaurants closed this year because of the Coronavirus Crisis?   Have a special mother's day breakfast & dinner prepared and delivered to Mom (see list below).

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

Ideas For Things To Do For Yourself (Mom) For Mothers Day

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 getting out to a store to shop.
