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 14, 2023.

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

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

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

Give a gift of a Spa Treatment. If mom loves spa treatments, check out our list of the best day spa's in NJ or if getting away for Mother's day weekend is more to her liking, check our list of the best hotels with spa's in NJ.

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.

Note: Sometimes conditions require cancellations or changes of dates, times and location which are not reflected in the original schedule.
