Its All About Celebrating Your Mother
Mother's Day is a special occasion for you to show gratitude for everything that your mom does for you. It is one day where you get to reverse the role a little bit, and make her feel special, a day revolving around her needs. Even though you never really could repay her for all the love and care you receive, here are some ideas as to what you can do to make this Mother's Day extremely special.
Spending the Day: Things You Can Do with Your Mom
We all know that in today's virtual world where we all stick to our phones more than anything else, real conversations matter so much.
So this Mother's Day do not just gift your mom something, instead go beyond that and plan things which will strengthen your relationship with her through some quality time. Here are some ideas for what all you can do with your mom this Mother's Day:
A Community Cooking Class with the Cuisine of Her Choice!
Each day, our mothers care to cook whatever we like, whether they like it or not. You could actually change it! Make your Mom fall in love with what she likes to cook or eat.
Bonus point, she does not have to do it alone. You can do it with her as a supportive push, where you encourage her to try something new, something that she would enjoy doing. It could be a well-spent day, where you cook with your mom, a better space to bond with her and also to make her see some new beginnings.
You can either choose to find a class where only the two of you cook together or a group experiential class where she also gets to meet and interact with other people. Usually these classes can be found online and cost around Rs. 1,000-1,500 per person.
Take Your Mom Out for an Experiential Day
You could also go out with your mom for a not so typical experience. These days a lot brands and eating places are always doing something or the other for every occasion. Otherwise also, there are other experiences you could take her out for.
For instance, you could take her out for an Outdoor Movie Screening experience by Sunset Cinema Club. They are usually priced at Rs. 399 per person and you can follow their page for an update. If you're someone who'd rather want to be a part of a private screening, you can request for the same as well. You could also check for other events happening around you, or exclusive events at restaurants which you could book beforehand like Karaoke nights, a dine and paint session etc.
Book a Spa Session for the Two of You
We all know how tiring it can be for our Mothers - be it for working moms or the home makers, it is definitely not easy to be a mother, it is rather challenging and exhausting. Our Moms have always put our happiness above their own and if nothing else, they definitely deserve a day filled with relaxation, but not alone.
Book yourself and your mom a special Spa session for two, where for once, you get to take care of her and her fatigue, giving her a day filled with pampering and self-love. You can find Spa's around you and book it with great deals on Nearbuy.
Switch Off That Phone and Give Her Your Attention
Let's face it, our virtual lives, to a very good extent, has taken over face to face conversations with people who are not on the other side of our screens, especially our parents.
They might be exploring and getting used to the idea of technology for virtual conversations, but still when it comes to their children, virtual cannot replace the old school conversations which we barely provide them anymore. So this Mother's Day, do this. Take her out for a coffee, an overnight getaway, a simple meal or a movie.
As a simple gesture, focus more on spending quality time with your Mother rather than your Social Media Apps, and see how happy such a simple gesture could make someone feel.
