Unique Ways to Tell Mom “I Love You”

Get ready to shake things up for Mom’s special day! Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 12, and the whole family has the chance to shower her with some extra love. Also, all moms are different, so why stick to the same old routine of chocolates and breakfast? Here are some unique ways to say “I Love You” on Mother’s Day.

For the Sentimental Mom
Create something she will want to cherish forever! Head to your local Marshalls or craft store and grab some supplies like pretty paper, markers, colored pencils, fake flowers, and stickers. When gifting to the sentimental mom, consider creating a memory jar, writing a beautiful letter, or even making a DIY scrapbook with the kids. 

For the Quality-Time Mom
Some moms want breakfast in bed, a quiet bath, and silence, but the active Momma doesn’t want any of that! Treat Mom to some quality time outdoors with a nature walk, or get your hands dirty planting a garden. If the Colorado weather doesn’t agree with your outdoor adventures, take out the nail polish and a big bowl for a DIY Spa Day at the house. Volunteering at a local nonprofit is also a fun and meaningful gift and a way to spend time together. 

For the Foodie Mom
Everyone loves food, but foodie moms especially love a good meal on Mother’s Day! Cook up a storm together at home. Note: Snag the ingredients beforehand because grocery shopping is not on Mom’s to-do list. If the family doesn’t want to cook, plan to go to her favorite restaurant or a new one that’s just opened up. Because nothing says “I love you” like a delicious meal shared with the family. 

For the Boujee Mom
Give her the royal treatment with a customized gift basket fit for a queen! Whether it’s a skincare/relaxation set or a basket full of blinged-out car accessories, make it as fabulous and extravagant as she is. Because, let’s face it, she deserves nothing but the best. 

This Mother’s Day, go beyond the traditional gifts and make it an experience that fits her uniqueness.
