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

Mother’s Day is right around the corner–May 8! We think moms deserve to feel special every day, but that’s especially the case on Mother’s Day! From sending flowers to writing a special card to gifting her a special experience, there are so many unique ways you can celebrate your mom this year. Whether you’re going to spend time with your mom in-person, or send her a gift from wherever you are, we have some ideas on how to make sure she feels special this Mother’s Day. 

Grab Her a Mother’s Day Crown

Of course, no Mother’s Day celebration is complete without fun party accessories like party crowns! Perfect for reminding her that she’s the “Best Mom Ever” or give her permission to be the “Queen of Everything” for the day with one of Festivegal’s adorable crowns! Not only will these crowns make her smile, but they’re perfect for everyone to get in on the celebration! Buy several and hand them out to your family before your Mother’s Day brunch as a fun surprise for your mom, or get a custom one made just for her. Party crowns also make a great memorable keepsake for mom to put in her scrapbook or a shadow box! 


Plan a Mother’s Day Brunch

Mother's Day Brunch

Brunch and Mother’s Day celebrations just seem to naturally go hand-in-hand, don’t they? If you’re going to be spending Mother’s Day with your mom in-person (or via a virtual Zoom-type situation), plan a Mother’s Day brunch! You could take this several different ways: at-home brunch cooked by you, a brunch outing at a local favorite restaurant, or a virtual brunch. We love easy brunch food like scrambled eggs, bagels, waffles, and mimosas, of course!

If your family lives nearby, invite them to brunch too and celebrate all together! Don’t feel like cooking/cleanup? Keep it simple and invite everyone out to a local restaurant for brunch. One tip- make sure you reserve WELL in advance, because popular brunch spots tend to get booked up for Mother’s Day. Nothing is worse than showing up with the whole fam, expecting to just get seated, and being turned away because you don’t have a res! 

Write Her a Sweet Letter

If your mom isn’t a fan of being the center of attention, or if you won’t get to spend Mother’s Day with her in-person this year, one of the best things you can give her is a heartfelt letter. Not only will she love receiving a handwritten letter (I mean, who writes or receives handwritten letters anymore), but she’ll love that she can read it over and over again whenever she needs some sweet words or loving reminders. Feeling extra creative? Add some hand drawn designs on the back, or include some photo prints (Polaroids or standard-size) to the letter to add even more personalized touches! 

Get Her a Thoughtful Gift

Mother's Day Gift ideas

Finding a Mother’s Day gift always seems to be a little tricky, especially because it’s already hard enough to find the perfect birthday and Christmas gift. So, we’ve got some easy, thoughtful gift ideas that are perfect for Mother’s Day. If your mom is the sentimental type, we love gifts like a custom hand-painted home illustration, or a cute beaded bracelet with a great saying, like this one! Is she more the pampering type? How about a super cozy bathrobe she’ll want to wear all day, a bougie towel warmer, or our favorite Vitamin C serum? And finally, if your mom is a culinary aficionado, she’ll love receiving a goody box of all sorts of elevated pantry essentials, or the Insta-famous Caraway cooking set
