For some great Mother’s Day celebration ideas, check out Melissa and Betsy’s tips after the jump.

  • Serving breakfast in bed? In addition to preparing her favorite eats, add fresh flowers to the tray along with a handwritten note detailing your favorite memory of having breakfast together.
  •  

  • Take an interest in hobbies or activities she enjoys and create a lasting memory of sharing in them together. Spend time in the garden and start a tradition by planting a new bloom each Mother’s Day. Exchange your favorite books and plan a date for the following month to discuss them over dinner at her favorite restaurant.
  •  

  • Make Mother’s Day an annual day of storytelling. Ask your mom to share stories of her mother and grandmother and record them on video or in a journal to pass along to your own children someday.
  •  

  • Get mom out of her comfort zone! The best gifts are often ones of experience. Surprise her with surfing lessons, a cooking class or even skydiving! Make a pact that every Mother’s Day you’re going to try something new and adventurous.
  •  

  • Continue the spirit of Mother’s Day all throughout the year! Motherhood is a 365 day a year job so don’t wait for merely one day each year to make her feel special. You can never tell your mom enough how much you love and appreciate her.
