5 Ways to Spoil Mom on Mother’s Day + HoneyBaked Giveaway

This is a partnered post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Mother’s Day. Growing up it was a day that I presented my mom with masterpieces of art that consisted of construction paper with dried beans or pasta glued to it. When I got older it was often a card or coffee mug. I still honor my mom on Mother’s Day, but my attention has also shifted to honor the mother of my three children. Giving her a paper with pasta glued to it just isn’t gonna cut it. So, here are a few ways you can honor the mother of your children this Mother’s Day in ways that will make her feel very appreciated.

5 Ways to Spoil Mom on Mother’s Day

  1. Flowers: The flower thing…I don’t get. But, it’s not about me nor do I need to understand it. Women get it though and from what I know most all moms are women. So, what does this mean? It means moms dig flowers. So pony up some pennies for some petals and get mom some flowers this mother’s day and make her day.
  2. Spa Day: What better place for mom to go than somewhere that revolves around making her feel and look even more beautiful than she already is. Buy mom a big gift card and set her free so that she can get whatever she wants. Manicure and pedicure? Done. Relaxing massage? Done. Weird body scrub? Done. Funky face mask? Done. They will take care of mom. Especially her uni-brow.
  3. Cook: Most of us know that the kitchen is usually mom’s domain, like dad’s is the garage…or that second bathroom. Day in and day out mom is serving up breakfasts, pumping out lunches, and delivering dinners to her family. It takes a bunch of effort to do it and she deserves a day off. With the help of HoneyBaked, take her place for the day. Let HoneyBaked do most of the work, and you can take all of the credit.Β  Cook it up, serve it up and most importantly, clean it up!
  4. Clean: Now unless you have really deep pockets you probably can’t really get her a new house that is spic and span. What I mean is you need to try to take the house she is already living in and get that thing all gussied up! Now, you can seek out a company that comes in and takes care of everything from washing and changing the sheets to washing the floors but, what if mom came home and knew that YOU did all that work yourself? What if she knew that you used your own elbow grease to clean those baseboards and scrub that toilet? Either way I bet she’d dig it.
  5. Rest: Get all those loud kids out of the house, take them somewhere dad has to wrangle them for a while, and let mom do whatever she wants to do in peace and quiet. If she wants to sit around and eat sushi while watching reruns of Saved by the Bell in mommy pants…then she can. Doesn’t matter what she does or doesn’t do, she can do it without having to hear “mommy!” Silence is golden.

A little bit of spoiling doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Show mom how much she means to you with one of these Mother’s Day gift ideas.

      I’m Mom so how my husband can make ME feel special on Mother’s Day is by BEING the masseuse and giving me his OWN spa services! I’d really like that. Save the dough and just spoil me at home!

      We used to try to TAKE HER OUT for Brunch or dinner… BUT Mom and Dad are very very Old School and they would say- oh pooh why go out and pay the inflated PRICES the restaurants charge cause it’s mothers day?? (for indeed, majority of restaurants DO charge higher prices on that day- they know people do go out more!) Mom INSISTED on having everyone over to her house for the day! No kidding! She, unlike me, actually LOVED cooking and all! We would help out, but she always wanted us over.
      We would bring the wine and chocolates!

Usually with both sides of the family and either doing one of her two favorite places for dinner (pickup as by going out in the morning she wants to stay in at night) or making dinner. (Let’s be honest she’s a trained culinary professional so it tends to be picking one of her two favorite places. I might make a few passable dishes but its her day for taste buds to be happy not just OK) πŸ˜‰

      I give my mom pictures of & by her grandkids! Also just taking as much time to talk to her as she wants is a treat. πŸ™‚

      I call to say I love my mom

      She likes flowers for outdoors.

      We have a really nice brunch for our mom with gifts and flowers!

      I cook her a meal and maybe run out to get her a dessert

      I always get my mom a gift for mother’s day and we have a cook out for her at my house.

      I just like to spend time with her and pamper her with gifts and flowers and love.

      When my Mom was alive, we three girls would cook her a very special meal. It would be at her house, so she wouldn’t have to travel. Just all of us and our families being together meant the world to her.

      We’d make breakfast and a home made card of course.

      Cards and call or spend time with them.

      Derek Timm on May 5th, 2014 8:07 pm

      I get her a gift and take her out to lunch.
