Moms make the world go around. From taking care of us as infants, toddlers, and young children to helping us navigate through life in our later years, our moms, or the mother figures in our lives, are there to teach us valuable life lessons and support us as we pave out our own path.
Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and while the celebration may continue to look different this year, the important thing to do is make the mother figure in your life feel special and appreciated for everything she does and has done over the years.
Senior Solutions Management Group has senior living communities throughout Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Tennessee, and we love having the opportunity to honor and celebrate individuals. We want to share some fun Mother’s Day ideas to help you celebrate this special day with Mom.
A Budding Mother’s Day Idea
While you may have brought flowers to the mother figure in your life in previous years, this may not be an option for this Mother’s Day. Fortunately, you can still keep this tradition alive and ensure Mom has flowers by having them sent to her.
This alternative ensures that your mother gets to see the bright, beautiful blooms in a safe way. If you are concerned that sending flowers is not as personal as delivering them yourself, worry not. Flower shops allow you to pick out which flowers you want to create a bouquet that is as unique as you and your mother. Additionally, most give you the option to write a personalized message on a card to accompany your selections.
We understand that this is not exactly the same, but having flowers delivered to your mother is still a personal way to help make her feel special on her day.
Like with any holiday or special event, it is common to get together with loved ones to celebrate the occasion. Even if visiting in person is not currently an option, host a virtual celebration. Applications such as FaceTime, Zoom, and Skype make it easy to connect and see one another face to face when physically being in the same space is not possible.
Coordinate ahead of time and plan a game to play, have food prepared and share a meal, or watch your favorite movie together with Teleparty. Whether it is just you and Mom spending quality time together or the whole family joins in on the virtual fun, this is a great way to get together with the mother figure in your life and help her feel appreciated.
Share Your Memories
Like sending flowers to Mom, this is a Mother’s Day idea that is extremely personal and meaningful. Create a keepsake box, scrapbook, or memory book and send it to the mother figure in your life for her to open on Mother’s Day.
Go through old photos, sift through your memory, and compile all of those experiences into one creation. Not only will this be a sentimental keepsake for years to come, but it will also be fun to reminisce with your mom and reflect on pleasant moments that you have shared. Furthermore, this meaningful gift is the ultimate way to show your mom that you care for and appreciate her.
Mother’s Day is all about spending time with the mother figure in your life, making her feel special, and showing her that you appreciate all that she does for you; however, doing so is important on more than just one day out of the year. You do not need to send flowers every day, but make sure to spend quality time with Mom whenever you can and tell her how much she means to you.
At Senior Solutions Management Group, we work hard to show our residents that we appreciate them. Through the compassionate care we offer in Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Tennessee, we support individuals in achieving their desired lifestyle and go above and beyond the norm to help each and every one of them feel special.
