How to get your mom to relax on Mother's Day

Breathe in, breathe out

The hardest gift in the world to buy is a Mother’s Day gift. How do you repay the woman who raised you? Because that’s nearly an impossible task, we recommend giving her the gift of relaxation. Here are a couple helpful hints to make sure your mom has a lovely, restful day this Mother’s Day.

Take the reins

It’s a mother’s instinct to be the one taking care of everyone. Don’t let her! Let her know that it’s Mother’s Day and you are here to take care of everything she needs.

Come prepared

Make sure you have everything planned before Mother’s Day. Don’t wait for Saturday night to make reservations or spa appointments. Planning ahead will ensure that Mom doesn’t have to lift a finger the whole day. And you won’t have to spend the day waiting to be seated for brunch.

Keep it casual

The most important thing is to spend time with your mom. You don’t need a jam-packed day of activities or gifts to show her how much she means to you. A day in the park or an evening stroll to reminisce are relaxing ways to spend some quality time with Mom.

Cater to her

As much as they love their little darlings, some moms also love being alone. If this sounds like the mom in your life, be sure to remember that on Mother’s Day. Pack up the kids and take them away so Mom can do whatever she pleases, without having to stress about practice, lunches or which kid has scraped her knee this time.

Show your gratitude

Mother’s Day comes down to showing Mom how much you love and appreciate her hard work. Make sure to remind her any way you can that she did a good job and that Mother’s Day is a day where she can sit back and enjoy the fruits of her labor. Allow her to relax and enjoy the day dedicated to her because, come Monday, she’ll be back to saving the world, one kid at a time.
