This is an activity that can include the whole family. So whether you have a favorite brunch spot, a dinner venue or a lovely terrace for lunch. Since this lets Mom take a break from the cooking and gives everyone a chance to visit.

Since early May is a perfect time to go on a picnic, plan a family outing in a favorite park. Prepare ahead , check the weather pack a blanket. make some of your Mom's favorites foods. Hence if your are not the cook in the family some delis offer premade picnic baskets. Remember to include a favorite bottle of wine.
3 Cook a great lunch or dinner.
If the great outdoors is not your style you can still cook an amazing meal at home. Especially relevant If you and your Mother enjoy cooking this is the perfect opportunity to spend some time together in the kitchen. While If you don't cook ,a favorite take-out will hit the spot.
4Take her to her favorite places.
Probably most Mothers have a favorite museum, bookstore, film, play or clothing store. This is a great idea to combine both the gift and the outing. Since the bookstore or favorite clothing store could also supply the gift.
5 Take a class together.
Whether it's booking a wine course or taking a painting or pottery class .Find something different to do. Most of all this can make for creating great memories. Therefore be sure to check out Groupon or LivingSocial for wonderful activities in your area.
6 Treat her to a spa day.
This is something you can do together or you can send her. While mom's at the spa maybe you clean her house or tidy the garden. Since nothing relaxes you more than a massage, facial or mani ,pedi.
7 Send her on a short trip.
Since life can can be overwhelming we all could do with a break Therefore sometimes the best thing you can do for the ladies in your life whether it's your mother or the mother of your kids is give them peace and quiet. A couple days at a B&B or a night at a luxury hotel may be perfect,
8 Visit a local nursery.
Since Mother's Day corresponds to the beginning of spring a trip to the local nursery or garden centre is a great idea. While there you can purchase the bedding plants , make a floral basket or maybe a get special rose bush or tree.

Since many of us don't attend church on a regular basis if your Mom is a church goer attend with her. This could make her day. Since this is a short activity combine it with a brunch or lunch and make a day of it.

While we all may have good intentions we may not often get into the wilderness. Since this will depend on where you live outdoor activities will vary. Therefore it may be a walk in the park a hike up a mountain or bike ride in the country. Celebrate Mothers Day outdoors.
