It’s true what they say: no matter how old we get, a part of us will always need our Moms. They’re the glue that holds it all together when it seems like everything is falling apart. Their warm and familiar hugs have healed boo-boos, breakups, and everything in between. Here are 5 steps to help you make her Mother’s Day just as special as she is.
Step 1: Put it in writing
Whether you send a card with flowers or keep it modern with a Facebook post, put your appreciation in writing. She knows how you feel, but who doesn’t love a good old fashioned written sentiment?
These sweet Mother’s Day cards can even be personalized and delivered directly to her doorstep, which means you won’t have to panic and buy a generic card from CVS on the big day.

Step 2: Make it her day
Lots of Moms love to get their mimosa on, but going out to brunch isn’t mandatory! Celebrate your leading lady by doing her favorite thing, whether it’s taking a walk in the park or spending the day at the beach. Whatever you do, make sure it revolves around the star of the show: her!
Step 3: Gift her a treat
Would it even be Mother’s Day without guiltless indulgence? Make sure mom gets her fix of chocolate truffles, cheese fries, or chicken Alfredo. Anything is fair game, as long as it’s her favorite thing to treat herself to. Lindt chocolate, anybody?
Step 4: Snap a Pic
Photos are the best way to look back on the perfect day you’ve shared together. Get mom out from behind the camera and snap a few memories together; even if one of you is camera shy!
If you and Mom already have more picture-perfect moments than you can count, consider gifting her an ‘All About My Mom’ personalized fill-in book as a sweet keepsake she’ll cherish for life.
Step 5: Say “thank you”
For all of the rides, hugs, and advice she’s selflessly given you over the years. She deserves all the props in the world for being da Mom dot com.
And you know what else Mom deserves? A super sweet, personalized photo gift. Check out the mother of all Mother’s Day gift guides here!
