12 creative ways to treat your mom

12 creative ways to treat your mom

Although every day should be Mother’s Day, let’s make this one extra special. Extra appreciation, gratitude and spoils for the woman who has your back, nurtured you and loved you since the first time you met. The comfort, grace, and love of a mother is incomparable. The safe haven of her arms and the loving touch of her hands. The same hands that feed you, clean up after you, reach for you and pray for you. Let’s give back to these superhumans we call mom.

While this may be a distant celebration for some due to lockdown, we are dedicating this post to the mothers, grannies, mothers-in-law, foster moms, all maternal-figures in our lives. We recognize the incredible influence they have on our lives and in society.

Here are some great ways to spoil your mom or guardian that can be done from the comfort of your home:

1. Let mom sleep in, make sure the room is dark and the house is quiet. This will allow her to start her day on a good note. As the saying goes, “if you love them, let them sleep”. A cup of coffee or some hot lemon water will be great as she wakes.


2. Make her a special, personalized card.


3. Add to her garden or gift her with a new plant. Plants are great ways to spruce up the energy of a space and beautify it – to lift one’s mood and cleanse the air.


4. Fill a jar with her favourite candies and treats. Wrap it with a ribbon and a special card or notes of love.


5. Set up a spa day for your mom. Create a station at home where she can soak her feet and get a foot rub. In the bedroom or on a comfy couch, set up another station for massages. After that, let her rest and recline with a face mask and some cucumber slices to soothe her eyes.


6. Get some beads, charms and jewelry supplies and make bracelets or necklaces together. Get creative and make things for one another.


7. Plan a movie night where Mom gets to pick her favourite movie. Make sure you have the popcorn and drinks sorted. Grab lots of comfy pillows to be extra cosy!


8. Get some canvas, paint and some wine. Invite your mom’s closest friends or family and have them enjoy a paint and wine evening (with lots of snacks).


9. Find an online yoga or pilates class that your mom will enjoy. Set up some mats and make sure you both will be undisturbed while you embrace the class.


10. Create a favourite moments book for her where you write down all your fondest experiences shared together. Include pictures and small tokens you may have. She will cherish this forever.


11.Create a picnic in the garden, on the balcony or simply on a soft carpet. Pack a basket full of your favourite snacks, fruits and treats. Lay down a blanket and bring along some games and a speaker playing some of her favourite music. Enjoy simply spending this time together.


12. Lastly, make your mom breakfast in bed or treat her to some delicious lemon chia breakfast muffins!
