Happy Mother’s Day! Celebrating All the Special Moms

May 3, 2021

Happy Mother’s Day!

 

Mom continues to be the heartbeat of the household, the backbone of the family, and this year we want to celebrate all the Moms and everything they do.

In addition to all the hats normally worn, Moms have become stay-at-home teachers, side-hustlers, and have had to be more creative than ever to keep their families happy, healthy. Moms have had an especially challenging year and deserve to be spoiled like never before! Whether you’re celebrating your Mom, your partner’s Mom or your friends that are Moms, this is definitely the year to show all the Moms how much we love and appreciate them, after all it is the #1 job!

Cheers To All the Moms!

There are so many “Moms” in our families and communities. Let’s show all these amazing Moms how much they mean to us and how much we appreciate them. We all know these Moms:

  • Girlfriend-Moms
  • Co-worker/Employee-Moms
  • Neighbour-Moms
  • Team Moms
  • Sister, Daughter & Granddaughter-Moms

The “Mom” role has definitely evolved over the last year, not only in terms of what Moms do, but with the impact they have on our families and communities. Let’s make all the Moms feel special. Sometimes the smallest gesture of appreciation can make the biggest impact.

Inspire and Celebrate the Moms In Your Life

How do you show Mom how much she means to you? Flowers? Her favourite meal? A day of pampering? There are so many ways to show Mom she’s amazing! We’ve put together some great ideas to inspire.

  1. Send a Card! This is the easiest and most popular way to show Mom you love her, but we suggest taking it old school by making her a card- perfect for the kids! Or, take it new school and send her a heartfelt e-card. Digital cards are a great alternative and bonus- they won’t get lost!
  2. Create a Slideshow! Fun, family memories are the best gift. Put together a slideshow collection of your favorite childhood photos and/or videos that your Mom is sure to appreciate. Add in some sentimental music, loving quotes, or voiceovers from other family members to make it even more personal.
  3. Make a Memory Jar What a wonderful way to show Mom you love her and maybe invoke a few happy tears. Write out some of your best memories on pretty paper and include memorable things you have done together, favourite family holidays and events, special things she has done for you, the best advice she has given you, and the ways that prove she is the best Mom ever!

There are so many ways to spoil the Moms in our lives. Letting her sleep in, delivering breakfast in bed, or giving her have an afternoon to herself to read her favourite book or watch her favourite movie, are great ways to let her know she’s appreciated.

We love the idea of creating  a Special Brunch, Dinner or Afternoon Wine and Charcuterie Tasting.
