Celebrating Moms in Your Home

  • Take mom out to enjoy a local event. Organizations are hosting family-friendly events on Mother’s Day weekend. Check out our round-up of things to do and plan a fun way to make memories together.
  • You can never go wrong with a classic breakfast in bed. Make mom feel like she’s in a five-star hotel with an indulgent experience. Just be sure to clean up the kitchen too!
  • Or, order a special meal from mom’s favorite restaurant. Nothing says “we love you” like a cooking- and cleaning-free day! Here are some reader-recommened OKC area restaurants serving brunch.
  • Offer mom some time alone to soak in a tub, read a book or take a nap (or all three!).
  • Brighten mom’s day with a fresh bouquet of flowers or kick the flower game up a notch and get out in the garden together!
  • Get outside and take a family hike together.
  • Set up a salon at home for a mani/pedi or book mom a session at a local spa.
  • Game night – let mom pick the game!
  • Flex your finest Pinterest skills and enjoy a craft-ernoon together or have the kids make a special keepsake craft. Here are five simple, but useful Mother’s Day craft ideas.
  • Bake something sweet together.
  • Pick up Mother’s Day-themed craft kits from a local art venue like Unpluggits and create together.
  • Have a family picnic with mom’s favorite foods.
  • Is there a local shop that mom loves? Gift mom a shopping spree at a shop you know she’ll love.
  • Give mom control of the remote.

Celebrating Moms From a Distance

Can’t be with your mom or mother figure on Mother’s Day? Here are a few ways to celebrate from afar:

  • Write and mail a letter.
  • Find a recipe you both love and set up a call to virtually bake or cook together.
  • Get out the old photo albums and share them through a video chat.
  • Find a local florist and send flowers!
  • Have the grandkids make a special craft and stick it in the mail for a special mail surprise.
  • If mom is within driving distance, pick up a special meal or treat from a local business. Or, order delivery from mom’s favorite restaurant!
  • Is mom a reader? Sign her up for a book of the month subscription.
  • Create and send a playlist of songs that remind you of your mom. Services like Spotify makes it easy!
