Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate your mom, but everybody will be taking her out for a meal. While it’s nice to give Mom a break from cooking, there are lots of different ways to show her how much you appreciate her. From picnics to makeovers, your mom will love doing something unique for her special day. Here’s our list of fun things to do this Sunday.

Get some professional photos taken with your mom. You’ll get to create a memory and a keepsake that will last for years to come. Keep the theme lighthearted and have fun with the shoot.

Take your mom on a shopping spree. Sure it’s great to buy your mother a gift from her favourite store, but with this idea, you get to spend quality time with her as well. Take her somewhere she loves and offer to pay for anything she wants.

Give her a spa day. Mothers love being able to relax. Give her the space she needs by getting her a day at the spa. Your mom will love being pampered and taken care of. You can also create your own home spa for the same luxurious feel without the heavy price tag.

Go on a picnic. Skip all the hassle of reserving a table at a restaurant and take your mom on a picnic lunch. Make her favourite foods, grab a comfortable blanket and head to a pretty park to spend the day. If Mother Nature doesn’t want to celebrate her day with nice weather, change your picnic to a fancy five-course dinner made exclusively for your mom.

Give her a makeover. Set up an appointment at the most fashionable hair salon. Book your mom a consultation, colour and cut to completely change her look. Make sure to add a beauty consult and makeup touch-up afterwards. Your mom will look and feel like a new woman.

Take her on a day trip. Pack up her things and head out somewhere she wouldn’t usually go. For low key events, look into visiting a museum, an art gallery or tourist spot. If your mom’s more adventurous, you can go horseback riding, hiking or climbing.

Learn something together. Pick a class for a hobby that your mom has always wanted to know. It can be anything from oil painting to sushi making. This is an experience that both of you will remember and you learn something new at the same time.

Take a vineyard or brewery tour. Local wineries and beer makers usually offer an assortment of tour packages. Choose her favourite beverage and see if you can get a behind-the-scenes look at how its made.

Go to a concert or musical. There are plenty of shows to see on a daily basis. If you know her favourite band will be in town at a later date, surprise her with tickets and some tour merchandise before the big day.

Ask her what she wants to do. It may seem simple, but it’s easy to forget that Mother’s Day is all about Mom and what she wants. If she’ll have the most fun just staying at home and catching some sleep, do everything you can to make it happen. Your mom will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
