How to Celebrate Your Mom on Mother’s Day 2022

  1. Start by calling or texting her

How long has it been since you last called or texted your mom? If you live far away from your mom and are wondering how you can celebrate Mother’s Day with her from a long distance, you should consider getting in touch with her. Since Mother’s Day falls on a Sunday, you most likely don’t have work or anything else to do. So, call or text her.

To celebrate your mom on Mother’s Day and make her feel special even long-distance, set aside time on that day to have a long phone or video call with her. Talk about anything and everything. If you can’t reach her on the phone, sending her a heartfelt text message about the things you love about her and telling her how much you love her will work too.

  1. Buy or Make her a DIY gift

Everyone loves gifts, and your mom is no exception. To celebrate the special day this year, there are numerous Mother’s Day gift ideas available to inspire you when choosing what to get your mom. And who knows your mom better than you? You can get her that thing you’ve heard her say or that you know she would like. For example, you can get her favorite perfume, flowers, a pretty dress, extravagant jewelry, essential oils, cozy socks, or a Mother’s Day card with a personalized message.

Another way to know what your mom might like is by getting her a thoughtful, practical Mother’s Day gift. For instance, you can buy her a replacement for something that is broken at home; such as kitchen gadgets and gardening tools, or something she can use in her line of work.

A great gift is not determined by the amount of money you spend on it, it is the thought and emotion behind it that matters. If you have the skills, you can try some DIY Mother’s Day gift ideas such as a painting, knitted sweater, handwritten card, or anything else you can make by yourself. DIY items are not just unique, but they are also great if you are looking for Mother’s Day gifts that you can get on a budget. Knowing you made the effort to make her a gift will make it even more special to your mom and she will be incredibly happy.

  1. Invite her to a virtual lunch/dinner date

Another great way to celebrate your mom on Mother’s Day if you live apart from each other, for whatever reasons, is to make plans for a virtual date. Living in different parts of the country or the world doesn’t mean you can’t be together on Mother’s Day.

To celebrate Mother’s Day with your mom this year, you can invite her to a virtual lunch or dinner. You could also get together on a video call and cook or bake the food she loves, all while catching up on things you have missed in each other’s lives.

  1. Make her favorite meal

Since Mother’s Day is the special day set aside to honor moms, you should do something special to celebrate and show her how much you love her. If you live in the same house as your mother (or close by), one of the best ways to celebrate your mom this Mother’s Day is to take over the kitchen and make her favorite meal.

Everyone loves a home-cooked meal, and your mom is not an exception. The good thing is that you don’t even have to be the best cook or to try out some complicated recipes. Whatever the result, your mom will love knowing that you put in the effort to make a meal for her on this special day.

  1. Plan a day out

If you are lucky enough to live with or close to your mom, another way to celebrate her on Mother’s Day is to take her out on a picnic. It could be to a nearby park or even the backyard of your home. It will be a great time to bond with each other while sharing a meal surrounded by nature.

If you are near a beach and the weather allows it, head there with your mom on Mother’s Day. You can spend the day doing some fun water activities such as swimming, surfing, or paddleboarding. You can also choose to relax while sunbathing and reading a book.

  1. Make a scrapbook

When is the last time you took a real photograph? Not the digital ones you take with your phone, a printed one. It has probably been a while. Do things differently this time. To celebrate your mom this Mother’s Day, print out your family pictures and make a photo album or scrapbook together.

You could also get the photos framed and display them on the walls of your home. If she would like one, you could also make a vision board for her together to help manifest her ideal future. It is never too late to make dreams come true!

  1. Join her in doing something she loves

What does your mom like to do? Is she a fitness enthusiast? Does she love gardening, cooking, or reading? On this day designated to celebrate motherhood, join your mom in doing something she loves. If this means getting your hands dirty planting, weeding the plants in the garden, or reading, do it. Have fun doing activities your mom loves and enjoy each other’s company while strengthening your bond on Mother’s Day.

  1. Help out with chores

Mothers are the most hardworking people on earth. They have to juggle many responsibilities at a time, all while making sure they remain sane. However, your mom is only human, and she deserves a break. What better time to give her that opportunity than on Mother’s Day?

One of the best ways to celebrate your mom on Mother’s Day is by reducing her workload and taking over the chores for the day. Let her have some time off to rest. In the meantime, cook, wash dishes, clean the house, or do the laundry while she gets to sit back and be the ’Queen’ for the day. 

  1. Play some fun games

Mothers also love to have fun, and playing games will provide just that. To celebrate your mom on Mother’s day, have the whole family join in to make this day special for her. Go to the backyard and play some fun Mother’s Day outdoor games such as tennis, volleyball, ring toss, giant Jenga, or Ultimate Frisbee.

You can also play some fun indoor family-friendly games such as solving crossword or Jigsaw puzzles, playing charades, Bingo, Scrabble, Monopoly, board games like chess, and Mom trivia/get-to-know-mom games.

  1. Karaoke or a dance party

If you are looking for fun ways to spend Mother’s Day with your mom, you should try karaoke. Sing along and dance to your mom’s favorite music. It doesn’t matter if you are out of tune; no one will judge you.

If you have no karaoke machine at home, don’t worry. You can find free karaoke music with lyrics on YouTube from channels such as Sing KingStinGray, and EdKara.

  1. Hold a Mother’s Day award ceremony

The past few years have been tough on everyone – and especially on mothers. She has been doing all the chores all year, and her responsibilities have probably increased. She is also the one who plans and organizes all other activities and holidays for the family. Don’t you think she deserves some recognition for all her hard work?

On Mother’s Day, make your mom feel special and appreciated by holding the Mommy Awards ceremony in her honor. This will be a fun activity to do on Mother’s Day, especially if you come from a large family. Have everyone come up with their own award name ideas and trophies such as The World’s Greatest Mom, Best Cook in the World, The Best Gardener in the World, or whatever other remarkable things your mom has done.

  1. Plan a staycation

Though most places and airlines are back to business after the pandemic, going on a trip or a family vacation to faraway places may not be possible on Mother’s Day. It is not an official public holiday and thus Mother’s Day is celebrated for only one day, Sunday, May 8. Nonetheless, almost everyone has had a difficult time for the past few years, and we all need a break from work and our daily routines and responsibilities. This is where a Mother’s Day staycation comes in.

You can do it without having to leave your city or even the comfort of your home. Recreate the vacation feels on the Mother’s Day weekend by planning a staycation to relax and unwind. Some activities to do to celebrate your mom on the Mother’s Day staycation include;

  • Start by bringing her breakfast in bed and wait on her hand and foot.
  • Recreate the spa experience for your mom at home – Get her a spa kit with essential oils, and candles, and play soft music to set a relaxing mood. Bring cleansers, moisturizers, masks, and toners for facials. For a relaxing bath, she will need some bath salts and lavender oil. Do some manicures and pedicures on each other. Finish off with a 15-20 minutes massage.
  • Plan a mindfulness meditation session.
  • Bring the vacation destination to her – Play music or prepare foods from the place your mom would have loved to visit if you had been able to travel.
  • If you have a swimming pool, apply sunscreen; put on your bathing suits; and sun hats; and head there. Spend a leisurely day doing nothing but sipping mimosas and eating snacks while sunbathing and swimming.
