With Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s time to show the special woman in your life how much she means to you. With an endless assortment of gifts, what your mom wants most is to know she is loved and appreciated. Here are seven ways to show your appreciation this year, whether together at home, on family travel or miles apart.

 

  1. Write a letter to tell her what she means to you. It may seem like no one writes letters anymore, but on Mother’s Day, dare to be different and put your feelings for your mom on paper. Often, we can write things we aren’t able to say, and the effort will not only touch her heart but will also create a memento she can cherish for years to come.
  1. Say it with flowers. What woman doesn’t love flowers? Send her a bouquet or create one from blooms you hand picked just for her so she can appreciate something as beautiful as she is.
  2. Take a trip down memory lane with a photo album curated just for her special day. Fill it with family photos to bring a smile to her face now and in years to come.
  3. Give her a break from mom duty. Let her take the day off by handling everything for her that day. Moms spend so much time doing things for others, so let her get in some me time, catch up on some res, or spend time with her family without having to worry about any responsibilities.
  4. Explore someplace new. Whether you take her to explore a nearby town she’s never been to or visit an exotic location halfway across the world, the memory of discovering someplace new with her family is one she will cherish forever.
  5. Curate a playlist just for her. Put together a list of songs that remind you of special moments in the past, songs that put your feelings to music or her favorite songs. Let her playlist be the soundtrack for a day on the road or background music at a family gathering. Your hand-picked choices will keep her smiling all day long knowing you took the time to select each one just for her.
  6. Plan a picnic on the go. Whether at home or on the road, an impromptu meal in the great outdoors is sure to be appreciated. The meal can be as simple as a loaf of French bread paired with some meats and cheeses from a local deli. When a mother is surrounded by her loved ones, every bite will be like a gourmet meal, whether enjoying a local park or sitting on a riverbank in Paris.

A Day at Nickelodeon Universe

If your family travel brings you to the greater New York City region, opt for a taste of nostalgia (or the grown-ups and fun and imagination for the kids at American Dream’s Nickelodeon Universe. Since I don’t have children, I recruited my best friend and her 6-year-old twins, Declan and Delaney, to help me check out the Nickelodeon-themed theme park and all the ways it brings to life favorite characters from cartoons both past and present, like Rugrats!, which I watched as a child, and Spongebob Square Pants, which is more Declan’s speed.
