5 Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day 2019
Flowers and spa dates are great, but this Mother’s Day, we’re skipping traditional gifts in favor of experiences that celebrate mom’s unique spirit. Not sure how to treat the superwoman in your life? Our team of Busy Girls created a list of ideas to spark your imagination. But no matter how you celebrate, remember that the best gift you can give the special woman in your life whether it’s your mom, aunt, or grandmother is your love and time -- two things we know all Busy Girls can get behind.
1. Take a Hike
Exploring nature releases endorphins, reduces stress levels, and provides lots of time and space for deep conversation. So what are you waiting for? Find your closest national park and get moving. Don’t forget to surprise mom with a Boho Bangle to showcase her colorful personality -- and keep a hair tie closeby during your adventures.
2. Sing Your Heart Out
You know mom likes to rock out -- so grab a pair of tickets to see one of her favorite bands! Don’t worry if the show is a few months away; there are lots of ways to amp up the anticipation. Create a Spotify playlist, treat her to band merch, like a t-shirt and vinyl, or start making dinner plans for the big night. Show off her love of heavy metal with classic bangles in gold, rose gold, and silver.
3. Treat Your Sweet Tooth
Sure, you could pick up her favorite cupcakes. But where’s the fun in that? Beef up your baking skills and indulge in your favorite treat by tackling a new or favorite recipe together. Pre-portion out ingredients ahead of time to simplify or check to see if there are cooking classes offered in your area. Pair your baking adventure with a pack of hair ties to keep your locks out of the final product.
4. Catch a Flick
An oldie, but a goodie, dinner and a movie is a great gift for the movie buff. Make reservations at her favorite restaurant or hit a high-end theater that offers dinner and drinks delivered to your seat. Not seeing any new movies that strike your fancy? Independent theaters often show classic and art house films that offer something unique. Pay homage to her favorite black-and-white flick with a set of Ebony and Ivory bangles.
5. Make Some Memories
Grab a hot glue gun and get to work! Collaborative crafting is an amazing way to make something beautiful together that you can enjoy for years to come. Scrapbooking is a fun place to start. Stock up on essential supplies like colorful paper, watercolor pens, and stickers, while you ask mom to bring over some of her favorite photos and mementos. Designing your book is easy! Layout photos on each page, interspersed with accents, then glue everything down. Make it extra special by getting the kids involved -- Busy Kid bangles will make sure their hair stays out of the glue.
