Mother's Day is a celebration of women who devote so much of their effort and energy to their families. Celebrating Mom on Mother's Day lets her know all of her efforts haven't gone unnoticed.
Mothers may perform similar tasks, but no two moms are the same. Finding ways to celebrate Mom's uniqueness can make the day that much more meaningful and memorable.
The Crafter: Mothers who are avid crafters may enjoy a craft-themed Mother's Day. A family crafting project can make for a fun afternoon and produce mementos Mom will cherish for years to come. Dads and kids can plan the project in advance, without Mom's knowledge, arranging all of the materials ahead of time and setting up the crafting station the night before or while Mom is relaxing on Mother's Day morning. Kids can even get a head start on the day, by making their own craft for Mom and giving it to her as a Mother's Day present. Dads can keep the craft theme going at dinner and get a laugh out of Mom if he made one of the side dishes Kraft dinner.
The Reader: A 2017 survey, from the Bureau of Labour Statistics, found, women read more than men. Women read an average of 19.8 minutes per day, which can make a Mother's Day, focused on Mom's love of books, an ideal and unique way to spend the day. Kids can write Mom their own books, and Dad can help put them together. Dads can visit rare bookstores and look for original copies of Mom's favourite books she might not find elsewhere. If it's a large family celebrating Mom or Grandma and they want to go all out, they could have a theme party and dress as some of the characters from her favourite books, for dinner time.
The Nature Lover: Fishing and other outdoor activities might have a reputation as predominantly male hobbies, but studies show that's not really the case. A 2016 report, from the Outdoor Foundation, found 46 percent of people who participated in outdoor activities were women. If Mom is a nature enthusiast, families can plan a Mother's Day enjoying the great outdoors, even giving Mom a new fishing pole, hiking gear or other items aligned with her favourite nature activity.
The Relaxation Specialist: Of course, some mothers may want to simply unwind with a relaxing morning at the spa on Mother's Day. A relaxing morning at the spa can be the perfect way for moms to begin Mother's Day, before they enjoy a brunch or dinner out with their families.
Mother's Day celebrations can be as unique as the women being celebrated.
