Ways to Pamper Mom on Mother’s Day

1. No Chores

Take a load off Mom’s back and do all the chores for her on Mother’s Day. No cooking, no cleaning, no laundry, no decision-making. That sounds like an ideal day to me!

2. Brunch

A nice brunch is my favorite meal out because I don’t do it often. It always seems like such a treat. Take Mom out to a delicious brunch. Mimosas, anyone?

3. Involve the kids

Involve the kids somehow either by having them make a craft for Mom or baking a sweet dessert. Sentimental ways to pamper Mom on Mother’s Day are truly memorable.

4. Afternoon to herself

One of my favorite ways to pamper Mom on Mother’s Day would be having an afternoon to myself. As much as I love my husband and kids, sometimes I just want a break and alone time, where I can relax, read a book, and just have some peace and quiet.

5. Beauty supplies

Honest is my new favorite brand for cosmetics so I know I’d love one of their beauty sets. The Best Sellers Kit contains all of Honest’s best selling products – Gel Cleanser, Hydrogel Cream, Extreme Length Mascara + Primer, Tinted Lip Balm, and Makeup Remover Wipes. I’m sure the mom in your life will love this too!

6. Doing nothing together

My family is always on the go, and I’m sure yours is too. Whether it’s work, school, kids’ weekend activities, it seems that we don’t get much time to just sit and relax together. Plan some time where you talk and have some quality time.

7. Sentimental gift

Sentimental gifts are some of the best ways to pamper Mom on Mother’s Day. I love curling up under a comfortable blanket so I would love this plush blanket with sweet sayings for moms.

8. Cook her favorite multi-course meal

What’s Mom’s favorite meal? Cook it for her but make it a delicious multi-course meal with her favorite appetizer, entree, and dessert. Moms do a lot of cooking so it’s always fun to have a break from that!

9. Spa experience

I would love an afternoon at a spa but it’s so hard to make the time for it. Treating Mom to a spa appointment or two would definitely give her the pampering experience that she deserves!

10. Do an activity she has wanted to do

I’m sure that there is some kind of activity that Mom has dropped hints about doing. I know I say things like “One day I’d like to…” or “We should go to…”. Organize an outing that Mom has wanted to do. When my husband takes charge and does the planning it is much easier for me to relax and enjoy myself!

11. Clean/organize the house

Hire a house cleaner to give Mom a break from cleaning. If you want to surprise her and do some of the cleaning or organizing yourself, start with a decluttering checklist!

12. New outfit

Surprise Mom with an outfit to wear for the Mother’s Day outing. MEROKEETY is a brand that I have been buying a lot of lately. They have great dressy and casual options.

13. Spa gifts for home

If an afternoon at the spa isn’t an option then encourage Mom to have a spa experience at home. The Pamper Me Kit comes with 7 different 15 minute masks for the eyes, face, hands, hair, and feet.

14. Mani/pedi away or at home

I always say that I want to go for a mani/pedi but everything else seems more important so I rarely go. Treat Mom to a mani/pedi, or if you think she’d prefer to just do it at home get her a Pedi in a Box set!

15. Massager

A massager is a great pampering option when your body is feeling tense, and what mom doesn’t feel tense? I have the RESTECK neck and back massager and I love it. It really helps with easing the stiffness in my neck and shoulders.

16. Yoga accessories

Yoga is an active way to pamper the body and mind. A yoga set is a great way to get Mom started on a yoga routine. The Clever Yoga set comes with a yoga mat, 2 yoga blocks, yoga strap, mat towel, hand towel, and carrying bag.

17. Painting class

If Mom has a creative side, treat her to a painting class. If you think she would prefer to just paint at home then get her a painting set. I find painting so relaxing but it’s hard to find the time to do it. Sometimes we just need some encouragement!

18. Breakfast in bed

In my house, we’re on the go from the moment we wake up. It’s rare that I get to relax in bed in the morning. Breakfast in bed is one of the ideal ways to pamper Mom on Mother’s Day!

19. Dinner and movie

Give Mom a break and take her out to dinner at her favorite restaurant. Top the date off with a movie of her choice. You can also try some other date night ideas for parents.

20. Hiking/biking

If Mom has an adventurous side plan out a hiking or biking family date. Choose the path and make sure you pack all the supplies too so she can just go along and enjoy herself.

21. Family outing

Plan a fun family outing that everyone will enjoy, such as to an amusement park, zoo, aquarium, or anything else you can think of! The pampering part for Mom will be not having to pack the diaper bag or handle any of the other preparations.

22. Cooking class

If Mom enjoys cooking treat her to a cooking class. Sur la Table has in-store cooking classes and sometimes offers virtual classes too.

23. Hammock

I love hammocks! A hammock is definitely one of the more relaxing ways to pamper Mom on Mother’s Day. She’ll get to lounge outside on warm summer days. It’s the type of gift that the whole family will likely enjoy.

24. Beach day

Plan a fun beach day! Mom will feel pampered if you pack all of the beach chairs and other supplies. I love the outings where I don’t have to do much thinking and preparing and just get to enjoy myself.

25. Special treat

Ferrero Collection chocolates are one of my favorite special treats. Spoil Mom with her favorite sweet treat that she will savor.

26. Picnic

Treat Mom to a picnic at a local park. Pack the picnic basket with a delicious lunch and bring along some outdoor games for the family to enjoy. Again, the most pampering part for Mom is not having to do any of the prep and packing!

27. Gift basket

A mom self-care kit is a one-stop shop gift containing many items that will spoil her and help her relax for some “me time”. You can also build your own gift basket with some great self-care gifts for moms. Mom will definitely feel pampered!

28. Make a video/album

I’m always taking photos and videos of my girls but I hardly find the time to organize them. Go ahead and make her a sentimental video or photo album. I’m sure she will love it!

29. Overnight getaway

One of the ultimate ways to pamper Mom on Mother’s Day is with an overnight getaway. As much as I love my kids, when I’m able to have a night away, not having to worry about bedtime and middle of the night wake-ups, I can relax with a much-needed break, and come home refreshed and ready to get back to mom life.
