Breakfast with oatmeal and fruit

Make a Healthy Breakfast

One of the best ways your mom can start the day is to a healthy breakfast that she doesn’t have to cook. Consider getting up a little early to start making her favorite breakfast foods. Don’t know how to make something? Follow some recipes or cooking tutorial videos online. If you got kids that are old enough to help, consider having them give you a hand. Prep the table for a nice breakfast or deliver the food to her in bed.

Order Flowers Online

The most iconic way of showing your love is through a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. Thankfully, many flower shops are still open and are offering pickup and/or delivery services. If you decide to get your mom some flowers, order them ahead of time online or over the phone so they will be ready on time.

Give Mom a Manicure and Pedicure

Your mom will want to keep her nails looking great. Unfortunately, with spas closed, setting up an appointment to get a manicure and pedicure isn’t possible this year. Instead, consider giving her a relaxing manicure and pedicure right at home. Want to make the occasion extra special? Have her pick her favorite nail polish color and paint her nails for her. Don’t know how to start? Online video tutorials will help walk you through the entire process.

Let Mom Choose the Activity for the Day

Did everything you planned? If the day is still young, offer some flexibility in the schedule. Maybe she’s feeling creative and wants to make some crafts. Perhaps she wants to relax with a romance movie or laugh with a comedy show. It’s always a good idea to let mom choose the next activity for the day. After all, that day is all about her and you will want to make the day as special as possible.
