Food for Thought
Some of the more obvious things to do on Mother’s Day revolve around food. Take Mom out for a Mother’s Day brunch. Or, if you’re celebrating with your wife or partner, serve her breakfast in bed. The kids can curl up next to her while she enjoys her coffee or tea, a favorite pastry and anything else you can whip up or bring in. For dinner, prepare her favorite meal. And if the kids are keen, let them put on a show for Mom. There’s nothing quite like dinner theater in the comfort of her own home.
Some of the best ideas for Mother’s Day are ones that will allow her to relax, rejuvenate and recharge. Send Mom to the spa or schedule an in-home massage. Afterwards, she can use her American Express Gift Card for creams, balms, masks, candles, scents and anything else that will help bring her back to her happy place long after Mother’s Day is over.
Take Mom out of town for the weekend or present her with an American Express Gift Card and let her choose a time to get away on her own. Mother’s Day Gift Cards can be used virtually anywhere American Express is accepted and will help give her the break she deserves.
The Art of Doing Nothing
Moms rarely get days off or enough time to themselves. If you’re still trying to figure out what to do on Mother’s Day, consider taking on Mom’s to do list and keeping the kids occupied. Let her sleep in, curl up on the couch, read, binge watch a TV show, melt into a bubble bath, eat ice cream right from the carton, or do whatever she needs to do to make her Sunday a true Mother’s Day… even if that means doing nothing at all.
Shop, Drop and Roll
Not all Mother’s Day activities are right for every Mom. But it’s hard to go wrong with a Mother’s Day shopping spree. Present Mom with an American Express Gift Card. Include a personal message and suggestions for how she might use the card. Then send her to her favorite stores and let her pick out what she wants.
Here’s to Mom!
