Here at Alder&Owl, we LOVE Mother’s Day! It’s a beautiful occasion that allows us to express our deep appreciation and love for the remarkable women in our lives. Our moms, aunties, zias, nanas, and all mother figures deserve to be showered with affection and gratitude. This year, let's go the extra mile to make them feel cherished and adored. Here are five cute ways to show Mom you care that will surely bring a smile to her face.
1. Send Personalized "Why I Love Mom" Videos
There's nothing quite as heart-melting as receiving heartfelt messages from your loved ones. Gather the entire family, from the youngest to the oldest, and ask them to record a short 30-second video expressing their love for Mom. Encourage everyone to speak from the heart and share their favourite memories, qualities, and reasons why she is so special to them. Compile these precious clips into a heartfelt montage and present it to her on Mother's Day. Watching her loved ones shower her with affection will definitely bring tears of joy to her eyes.
2. Reconnect with Loved Ones
Mothers often find immense joy in spending time with their extended family. Take this opportunity to reach out to family members she hasn't seen in a while and plan a surprise visit. Think of relatives she may have missed, like her cousin who recently had a baby. Coordinate with these family members to arrange a gathering, ensuring it aligns with her schedule. When she sees the door open and her loved ones walking in, the joy on her face will be immeasurable. This gesture not only brings the family together but also reaffirms the strength of the bonds that surround her.
3. Host a Movie Night
Moms often prioritize the happiness of their loved ones, sometimes putting their own desires aside. This Mother's Day, take the opportunity to ask her about her favourite movie. Plan a cozy viewing party with a few of her closest friends, complete with snacks and cozy blankets. Create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere where she can unwind and enjoy her favourite film. Bringing her friends together allows her to cherish moments of laughter and connection with her loved ones. The shared experience will make her feel cherished and appreciated.
4. Cook Her Favourite Meal
One of the most heartfelt ways to show Mom you care is by cooking her favourite meal. Take the time to learn the recipe and put your heart and soul into preparing it for her. Decorate the table with her favourite flowers and candles to create a cozy atmosphere. When she sits down to enjoy the delicious meal, she will feel appreciated and loved.
5. Surprise Her with a Gift
Whether it's handmade or store-bought, the thought and effort behind the present will make her feel special. Consider gifting her an Alder&Owl Box, like our "Sunshine Box”, which includes a Positive Affirmation Stacking Block Set, UV Blocking Sun Hat, Interactive World-Adventure Colouring Book, a versatile Touch Light, and SPF 30 All Natural Canadian-Made Sunscreen. We guarantee she will love the thoughtfulness of this curated collection of items that are perfect for the sunny day ahead. Be sure to check out Alder’s Market for more gift ideas!
