This is a strange and special year...the last I'll have to celebrate other moms in my life before becoming one myself. While I've had some time to reflect on the meaning of motherhood, I know it will take on hugely new significance in the next few weeks. Before my world is turned upside down in this wonderful way, I want to take the chance to celebrate and thank the one(s) who showed me the way. Here are six fun ideas for doing just that.
1. At-Home Brunch
If I lived near to my mom, my first choice would be to honor her with a home-cooked meal. My favorite go-to's? Spinach quiche and raspberry lemon muffins with grapefruit mimosas. Add some cheesy grits in and she's sure to feel extra appreciated.
2. A Week of Meals
Not close-by to do the cooking yourself? Send a box of healthy meals straight to her door! A Green Chef box comes with 3 ready-to-cook healthy meals and offers plenty of options. Plus, you can get some $ off your first order.
3. A Little I'm-Thinking-of-You Gift
A thoughtful remembrance doesn't have to be fancy. A candle, bar of chocolate, or bag of specialty tea are sweet tokens to communicate to a mom in your life just how special she is to you. I love the options at Greetabl and the way that you can incorporate personalized photos and a message right into the cute packaging.
4. Treat Herself
Package up a little self-care bundle with some bath salts, face mask, nail polish, and lotion. Or, if you have the option, give her the full treatment with a spa service, like the mask bar at Chicago's natural skincare stop, Scratch Goods. You know what? She may want some company. You should probably just go with her.
5. A Thoughtful Card
I wouldn't be doing my diligence if I didn't remind you not to forget the card! Take a few minutes to express in writing just what you admire about this woman. Include a poem or photo. Gratitude is the essence of this day, after all, so make yours known.
6. Far-Away Flowers
A hand-delivered bouquet is a great option for those that don't live within visiting distance of family. I've long admired Farm Girl Flowers for their artful arrangements—a perfect choice for sending a tangible expression of your love.
