How to Make Your Mom Feel Special for Mother’s Day 

Give Her Backyard Seating Area a Makeover

All Weather Folding/Armless Chair Textured Cushion

By this time of year, most of our backyards are looking a little unloved after winter. Because of this, there’s a lot of work to be done to get it ready for all those long summer evenings. Whether your mom likes to entertain friends or simply sit outside with a good book, why not give her backyard seating area a makeover so she can enjoy it now?

You can start by cleaning the area, adding some new plants around the patio or deck, and updating the furniture with comfortable outdoor chairs and a table. If your mom enjoys reading, consider adding a cozy hammock or a comfortable reading chair. A backyard oasis is a perfect gift for any mom who loves spending time outside.

We’ve got 7 simple backyard renovation ideas you can use for inspiration if you want to take things up another level.

Give Her a Gift Card and Take Her Out to Dinner

Free People eGift Card - how to make your mom feel special on mother's day

Moms often forget to give themselves the same love they give their family. So, give the woman in your life a chance to upgrade her wardrobe and then take her out so she can show it off. A gift card to her favorite clothing store, such as Free People, followed by dinner out at her favorite restaurant will make her feel truly loved.

Bonus points if you give her the gift card soon. As a result, she can order her clothes and have them ready for dinner on Mother’s Day.

Want to level up this idea? If you’ve got a little cash to spend, combine the gift card with a weekend getaway. That way, you can show your mom a fun time and make new favorite memories with her!

Buy Her Quality, Long-Lasting Jewelry

Aquamarine and Micropavé Diamond Stud Earrings in 18k White Gold (5mm) - how to make your mom feel special on Mother's Day

Jewelry is always a great gift for Mother’s Day. Choose quality, long-lasting pieces that your mom can wear for years to come. We love pieces like these Aquamarine and Micropave Diamond Stud Earrings in 18k white gold from Blue Nile.

If you really want to go the extra mile, design the jewelry yourself by customizing the necklace and gemstone with jewelry from Brilliant Earth. This way, your mom will have a unique piece that she can treasure forever.

Send Her Flowers and Chocolates or a Meal

If you’re not able to spend this Mother’s Day with your mom, send her something so she can feel extra special. Can’t afford jewelry or your mom doesn’t like it? Send her a large bouquet of flowers and some chocolates. If that’s a little cliche, order her a meal from her favorite restaurant or arrange for breakfast in bed!

Buy Her a Spa Day

Moms deserve to be pampered, so why not treat your mom to a spa day? Book her in at a great hair salon or buy her a spa day or weekend at a local retreat. If your mom prefers to stay at home, buy her all the products she needs to pamper herself, from bath bombs to face masks and new skincare products. Your mom will appreciate the chance to unwind and relax.

Show the Mother in Your Life Some Love

Mother’s Day is a time to show appreciation to all the amazing moms out there for their hard work, love, and support. By giving your mom a gift that shows how much you care, you can make her day an unforgettable one.

From a backyard seating area makeover to quality jewelry or a spa day, there are plenty of ways to make mom feel special for Mother’s Day. Whatever you choose, remember to tell your mom how much she means to you and how grateful you are for everything she has done for you.
