Mother’s Day is an important celebration for families to appreciate and bond together. This is a time for fathers and children to work as a team to create memorable moments for their living inspiration – mothers.
Beyond than a celebration, Mother’s Day serves as a day for mothers around the world to take their deserving rest. So, when planning for this special occasion, ask them what they want or what they want to do instead of assuming.
But, be sure to be as discreet as possible to not diminish their anticipation of what you have planned.
So, Dads around the world, mark your calendars and read on to start planning for Mother’s Day that falls on May 9, 2021!
Why is it Important to Celebrate Mother’s Day?
We want to give our tender-loving mothers a break from their exhausting routines. Constantly worrying about other people, not getting enough rest, caring for their young children’s academic performance, keeping tab on house supplies. The worries and responsibilities are never-ending!
3 Mother’s Day Themes
Walking down the memory lane is perhaps the most fitting theme for this celebration as it allows mothers to smile as they remember how far they have come in life. So, think of gifts that can achieve these goals.
Idea #1: The locket
A locket is a small metal container holding images of someone dear to the owner of the locket.
So be reflective and choose images, that you think would evoke her strongest emotion of nostalgia.
Images that will make her feel young and alive!
- Pictures of your marriage
- Pictures of your family
Idea #2: A Hands-on Activity
As the name suggests, hands! Get a white t-shirt, paint and towels, because things are going to be messy from here!
What you want to do is fairly simple. Every member of the family shall paint their hands and paste it on the t-shirt.
You can also include a caption on the t-shirt
Give several options that you think they would enjoy. This way, you’re not subjecting them to one type of activity. More importantly, it helps make the celebration more personalized for them.
Idea #1: Gift Cards
When we mention gift cards, we mean specific ones that would make her feel pampered and happy.
Idea #2: Decorate the house
Without breaking the bank, adding a few statement pieces of art that could create a more sophisticated element to living space.
Idea #1: Pizza and Netflix
The subtitle says it all!
Idea #2: Create a Mom Playlist
What songs make you get reminded of her? Make a music playlist out of her!
You could try, Spotify Duo, to create the foundation of the playlist.
Idea #3: Breakfast in Bed
Nothing beats a hearty and warm breakfast to start the day. She would love something that has your added effort and initiation. What better way to cook a meal.
Here is a visual cookbook that has simple and comprehensive recipes.
At the end of the day, these are just ideas, and what really matters is what our mothers/ wives value. And how do we plan to give them that on Mother’s Day.
No gift would compete with the gift of love. And love means listening to them and providing them assurance and tender loving care.
