* Create a "Memory Jar". If you are a first time mom, your mother will really appreciate a jar filled with all your favorite memories that you have shared with her. Also fun to share- special things that your mom did for you that you plan on doing for your child. Put these thoughtful ideas on slips of paper and present them in a pretty Mason Jar or a fun decorative jar.
* Name a star after your mom...after all, growing up she most likely was the "celebrity" that you coveted.
*Did you make friends with some ladies in a lamaze class or prenatal group? If they just recently gave birth, put together a basket with some yummy treats or a collection full of menus with a gift certificate to your favorite restaurant that delivers. Still an expectant mom? Send her some flowers, after all, this is technically her first Mother's Day.
* Offer your mom a "girl's night". Sure, she will always be your mom but as your get older it is nice to transition to friendship as well. Make your mom feel special by inviting her over for a movie marathon or try a new restaurant out together. Sharing in bonding activities are ways to strengthen your relationship and will make your mom feel special.
* Your mom is sweet and deserves some sweets. Treat your mom to a fun day of trying your city's best confections. Do a little research on sites like yelp.com and create an agenda like going on a "cupcake crawl", "chocolate tour" or an "ice cream lover's journey" and trek to the best spots for these delicious treats.
Have a wonderful day!
