She cleaned up your spilt milk and comforted you
when you were down. May 12 is your opportunity to show her how much you care.
Even if you're married, you shouldn’t neglect your mom. So mark it in your
calendar or PDA.
Here are a 10 ways to rock your mom’s world
this mother’s day. She'll surely love the following suggestions:
1. Yes, buy her a gift…
Consider chocolates or tea/coffee gift basket (if she's a tea-time
enthusiast). Pick a book from her favorite bookstore. Or how about a gift
certificate for a massage, a day at the spa or whatever suits her fancy?
2. Send her a card…
You'd be surprised how many people (especially men) skip this simple little
step. She'll love a warm and fuzzy Mom's Day card from her favorite child. And
it's OK to get a little mushy.
3. Serve breakfast in bed…
This is probably the best thing you can do for your mother. It proves that
you're willing to wake up early enough just to serve her breakfast. Just fix up
a tray with toast, eggs, fruit, a muffin or croissant, juice, tea or coffee, and
if you want to get fancy, put a flower in a vase. You can also try cooking some
of Lutongbahay.com’s breakfast recipes like Salted
Fish Fried Rice, Chili Con Carne Omelet or Banana
4. Do a family brunch…
An alternative to breakfast in bed is a family brunch for all to enjoy.
5. Surprise her…
Treat your mom to an adventure --- take her on a bike ride or introduce her to
rollerblading; take her on a picnic or on a daytrip to a local resort.
6. Take her out…
Escort her to a matinee -- either a movie or a play. Or you can treat her to a
great lunch or dinner at a nice restaurant.
7. Fire up the grill…
After spending the day with your mom --- with or without your family --- cap
it off with a family barbecue. 'Tis season once again, and what better way to
end a perfect day than by eating chicken, burgers and hot dogs with family and
friends? Get some music playing, food on the barby, and invite loved ones to cap
off a memorable day.
8. Give her a souvenir…
Make sure to take some family pictures as a souvenir, and to really impress
your mom, place a developed picture in a new frame and give it to her.
9. Tell her that you love her…
This may be the sweetest thing that your mom will ever hear for the day. You
may tell her every single day that you love her but these three words are still
the sweetest for her.
10. Flowers never hurt…
There isn't a mom in the world who can
resist beautiful blooms. So go ahead and purchase a bouquet of flowers for her.
