8 Ways to Celebrate Mom

Hey, beautiful! If you’re in the US, Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It’s the perfect opportunity to toast the amazing women who brought us all into the world. Sure, it shouldn’t take a Hallmark holiday to shout out to the (s)heroes who nurtured, loved, and shaped us. So for everyone else who’s celebrating at a different time, while we're poppin bottles on the second Sunday in May in the US (and loads of other places), why not join the party and just treat her anyways, just coz? She deserves it.

So, whether you're here to spoil your mom, a mom-friend, or hey, even yourself (Meltdown Manager employee of the month) - you've come to the right place. We’re about to dive into a whole bunch of unique, fun, and utterly unforgettable ways to show the leading ladies in our lives just how much we adore them. Let’s make this Mother's Day ridiculously memorable!

Memorable Mom-ents: 8 Ways to Celebrate Mom this Mother's Day

Literally from the moment we're born, moms often put their needs and wants on the back burner. Mother's Day is our chance to flip the script and shower them with the love and appreciation they deserve. Whether it's with a thoughtful gift, or a heartfelt activity, let's make this day one to remember, forever.

Bring Her Breakfast in Bed

Start her day off right by serving mom a gourmet breakfast in bed. Or, a mixing bowl full of her fave sugary cereal, paired with a massive mimosa – whatever she’s into! It’s her day after all.

Accompany her favorite dishes with our super-cute, heart-shaped-sprinkle adorned "Mom I Love You" candle, filling the room with a gorgeous fruity-floral fragrance. It’s sure to make her feel truly cherished.

Dinner at Her Favorite Restaurant

Book a table at her favorite restaurant and take her out for a scrumptious meal. Remember, it’s all about her, though. That chain restaurant opposite the mall might not be your cup-o-tea, but it’s best to pick some place she feels comfortable, and can be treated to food she really loves. It’s a simple yet effective way to make her feel pampered and understood.

Build Her a Thank You Basket

Craft a personalized Thank You basket filled with things your mom loves. Chocolates and candy are always a safe bet, but including thoughtful things that relate to her hobbies and interests are a great touch. You can always theme it around a theme that she loves too, like gardening in the spring, or crafts in the fall.

Don’t forget our “Mom, Thanks a Bunch!” candle, topped with an extra special, sculpted wax flower. It smells like a whole bouquet's worth of flowers. She’s 100% gonna say “it’s far too pretty to light”, which it is… almost. But whether she lights it or not, it’s going to be the perfect reminder that she’s loved and appreciated.

Take Her on a Shopping Spree

Have some spare cash to spend? Why not treat mom to a shopping spree at her favorite store? It might not end up as expensive as you think – It's not really about the purchases, it’s more about spending quality time together, learning what each other likes and dislikes, and discovering things in common.

Treat Mom to a Girls Night In

Organize a girls night in with mom. Grab some tasty snacks, snuggle up in your fave PJs, and settle in for a nostalgic, memorable movie marathon. Maybe turn it into a good old fashioned sleepover too! Chances are she hasn't done that for a long time and could really bring her back to her youth.

Bonus points for lighting up our “Who Runs the World? Moms” soy candle, with sparkling girlie notes of mandarin, coconut and amber. Forbes included ithis cute candle in their list of "Best Mother's Day Gifts" and E! News raved about it in their"Mother's Day Gifts For Self-Care To Help Her Pamper, Relax & Chill" article. It’s a cozy way to bond and make new lowkey memories.

Take Her on an Adventure

Whether it's a local day trip or a mini-vacation, planning an adventure with mom can be an exhilarating way to celebrate. You don’t have to jump out of a plane together (but you can!), it can be way more casual than that. It’s about the novel experience and the stories you’ll share for years to come.
