Mother's Day

Some Creative Ways to Show Love this Mother’s Day Here on the Suncoast

| Angela Naff |

Mother’s Day is next weekend, Sunday, May 8, 2022. If you haven’t figured out something you might like to do to celebrate the mom in your life, we have helped by compiling a list of creative ways to show someone appreciation this Mother’s Day. As love, cherishing moments, and memories are the most important parts of our relationship with our moms, mom figures, and other amazing female caretakers, these are simple ideas that won’t cost you anything – and are great for all ages to participate in.

Picnic for Everyone

Fresh air and blue skies elevate even the simplest of sandwiches. Make your picnic extra special by whipping up Mom’s favorite treats and taking her to a quiet spot with a fantastic view. Tuck a few mother-son and mother-daughter quotes into the basket so she can read them over lunch.

Cupcakes Decorate with Little Hands

These cute cupcakes will be a lovely surprise for mom. Kids can help by stirring up the simple sponge mixture and decorating it with a swirl of buttercream. Get creative with food colorings and edible sprinkles for a special finish. This is sure to be a winner for mom and fun activity for kiddos to participate in as well.

Digital Mother’s Day Scavenger Hunt

This Digital Mother’s Day Scavenger Hunt is one of the most fun virtual Mother’s Day activities for moms and kids of any age. First, invite groups of mothers and their children to a virtual meeting. Then, read off the prompts one by one. Players rush off to retrieve the object. The first participants to virtually raise their hand and show off the item or perform the act wins a point. This allows a bigger group to participate in this cool activity.

Creative Photo Coasters

Here’s an inexpensive yet adorable idea that any mother would love! Keep her tables neat and her heart happy with a handy set of mod photo coasters. They make a fantastic idea for handmade gifts for mom this holiday. Remind her of your favorite moments together whenever she’s having her preferred beverage at home!

Home Spa Day

A spa day at home is just right if your mom has been super swamped with chores and could use a respite from the everyday hustle and bustle. Here’s how you can go about it…

  • Step 1: Put together a playlist of soothing melodies and shop a few scented candles to create a spa-like ambiance at home. If you want to take it up a notch, consider getting mom a soft robe too.
  • Step 2: Make your spa water (BTW, champagne works just fine too) and put out some snacks.
  • Step 3: Treat mom to an at-home facial, a mani/pedi, and a nice massage!

Did you pick up some inspiration for this coming Mother’s Day? Whether scavenger hunting or baking together to just crafting some new memories, we hope everyone enjoys this day. We know that it is a joy to have family, friends, and others around on these important occasions and hope that even those that maybe don’t have their mom with them this year can commemorate this holiday with joy and happiness in their hearts.
