Spring has officially arrived! April showers bring May flowers...just in time for Mother’s Day!
We know we don’t have to tell you how much Moms love flowers. And, are sure that you already have them on your list for Mom (hint, hint!). But, when it comes to Mother’s Day, it’s all about the sentiment. Although jewelry and other fancy gifts are always nice to receive no matter the occasion, Mother’s Day is all about showing your Mom how much you care for and appreciate her with your actions and words!
In addition to giving her a gift she will love, such as beautiful flowers delivered straight to her door every month, it’s so very important to express your love and gratitude. For example, in the gift message, be sure to tell her how you really feel!
Ready for some other ways to show Mom how much you and the kids care about her this Mother’s Day? Read on!
Breakfast in Bed
There’s a reason why “breakfast in bed” goes hand in hand for Mother’s Day! What Mom doesn’t want to wake up to a breakfast tray full of love? Making Mom her favorite breakfast, serving up her coffee the way she likes it, and adding a special handwritten notes and drawings, is such a lovely Mother’s Day tradition. Don’t forget the flowers!
Bring out the glue and pom poms! Homemade gifts made by little hands--or big ones!--are such a heartfelt way to show how much you love Mom. She’s sure to treasure them for years to come. Need some inspiration? Just search Pinterest for Mother’s Day crafts! Have little ones?

A Special Home-cooked Dinner
Want to really impress Mom? Get the whole family involved in cooking Mom up a special dinner. Pick a dish you know she loves, and search for recipes online using modifiers such as “quick” or “easy”.

Go all out with a beautifully set table adorned with lit candles, fresh flowers, and her favorite wine.
A Night Out
