5 Ways to Pamper Your Mom on Mother’s Day

It’s possible to make the most special woman in your life feel extra loved without leaving your home


There's no denying that our moms play an important role in our lives—it's only fitting that we make her feel extra special on her day. While we try to make her feel extraordinary each day, Mother's Day should still be a one-of-a-kind celebration. If you're tired of the usual dinner reservations at a staple restaurant, try something new this year by pampering her in her own sanctuary—after all, there's no place like home. 

1. Bond over gardening. 

There are a few things moms love more than their children and one of those is gardening. If you have a patch of land that needs a little bit of TLC, you can spend quality time together reviving your green corner. You can even take it a step further by setting up a little gardening nook for her that's complete with different plants, fertilizers, and tools.

2. Let her indulge in dessert. 

Does your mom have a sweet tooth? Spoil her on Mother's Day with her favorite desserts or better yet, bake them together! This will give you a lot of time to bond and share stories over delicious treats. 

RL Tip: If you're set on surprising her, try putting together a fancy tablescape for serving the dessert. Click here for ideas.

3. Surprise her with a hearty breakfast in bed. 

The smell of coffee combined with a plate of her favorite tapsilog will surely wake her up on the right side of the bed. You can even use dinnerware with little sayings that will remind her of how special she is. 

RL Tip: No statement dishes? No problem. Make her morning meal fancy by using the China you save for special occasions. 

4. Binge watch a new show or your favorite movies together. 

Bring out your inner movie buff by holding a marathon with your mom! Share the tissues while watching sappy rom-coms and laugh your hearts out during the comedies. Make your living area extra cozy for your all-night session by adding a few throws and pillows to the mix. 

5. Arrange a candlelit dinner.

For something more intimate, try cooking a complete three-course dinner for an elegant dining experience at home. Put together a memorable setting with candles, fresh blooms, and a bottle of the most expensive champagne. Make sure to prepare her favorite dishes, too!
