10 Ways to Celebrate Mom this Mother's Day

Posted In: DIY

We’ve learned everything we know from our moms and this Mother’s Day, let’s show her we know how to treat her right! We’ve compiled 10 of our very best ideas for showing mom just how special we think she is.

1.  Set up an at-home spa experience

Who doesn’t love an opportunity to relax, unwind and indulge? Give mom the gift of an at-home spa, so that she can take some time for herself, even if she only has an hour to spare. Put a gift together with some candles, a fragrant bath bomb (limited edition Rose Bombshell is a perfect choice), and a great book – and most importantly, give her some uninterrupted privacy!

2. Make her home sparkle

It ain’t easy bein’ mom, as most of our own mothers love to tell us! Thank her for all she does by cleaning the house from top to bottom. We’ve got some green cleaning solutions that will help you get it done in an environmentally-friendly way! A few simple ingredients and those floors, counters and mirrors will be shining in no time, while mom puts her feet up and enjoys some much-needed rest.

3. Take her on a surprise adventure

Pick mom up and surprise her with a quick trip. Across the border or across the city, discovering somewhere new will be full of unexpected excitement. Do your homework and check out places and activities she might love and put together a fun-filled itinerary. Don’t forget your camera!

4. Walk down memory lane

Put together a scrapbook just for mom. We found one that we love from A Beautiful Mess with a step-by-step guide to creating an awesome, personalized gift using recycled materials and your favorite photos.

5. Take a class

Search out a fun class that you and mom can do for the day. Spend quality time together getting active with yoga or a dance class, or do something more hands-on like a pottery or woodworking workshop. There’s sure to be something to suit every mom’s taste at a local shop, culinary school or college.

6. Give to other moms 

Local shelters dedicated to mothers and children are always in need of support. You and mom can give back to other mothers with a donation of your time or gently-used items. Call your local shelter to find out what they need the most, or when you can volunteer. Or, give your mom Charity Pot Hand and Body Lotion and you’ll do a world of good for charities like Amarok SocietyAlice Housing, and Generation Her that do a world of good for moms in need.

7. Long-distance date

Can’t be with your mom on Mother’s Day? Have a Plan a Skype dinner date with to catch up, or even watch her favorite movie at the same time on Netflix. You don’t have to be in the same room to spend quality time together – you just need a bit of creativity!

8. Get your bake on!

Sometimes the best gift you can give mom is your time. This Mother’s Day make some memories and sweet treats with some of our Lush-inspired edibles. They’re a delicious way to spend the afternoon chatting, laughing and baking up a storm.

9. Wine and dine

Take mom out for a fun night at a winery or brewery. Most local places open up their doors and offer tours, which often include a tasting of their best brews. Be sure to call ahead first and see if they have a dining option as well.

10. Let her choose

It’s mom’s special day: let her decide how she wants to spend it! Reserve the day and let her know you’re ready to do anything she wants to do – and if all she wants is to spend time with you, have a backup plan like brunch, a hike or a movie so that you can have some quality time together.
