Make this year’s Mother’s Day extra special for all the wonderful mama’s out there who are lovers, fighters, dream makers, friends, and mentors and utilize the list we’ve put together of creative ways you can show the Mom (or Moms) in your life just how much they mean to you – and best of all – you can do them all without leaving your new Lennar home!
Brunch in Bed
Mom should start feeling appreciated as soon as she wakes up. Let her sleep in! Then surprise her with some delicious brunch in bed. Get the kids involved too! Spelling out “MOM” with bacon strips, sausages, an egg, fruit, pancakes, and even whipped cream! They’ll really enjoy sharing with their Mom how much they love her!
Get Stuff Done
Have you given your home its annual spring cleaning? (We shared some tips on that too!) If not, this is a great gift for Mom – and the whole family – and you can get started while Mom’s enjoying her brunch in bed! If Mom has a to-do list laying around, get some of those things like laundry, cleaning, shopping, etc. out of the way. Mom will love having “nothing to do” in a fresh clean home!
Buy Her Flowers
Not the standard flowers from the grocery store, or delivery services online. Take your Mom to the local flower nursery, and pick out her favorite flowers to add to a garden in the backyard. Whether you’re just starting a garden, or revamping the one you already have – it’s one of the most rewarding things one can do. Everyone can benefit from getting their hands a little dirty, especially when planting beautiful fragrant florals! Making this a group effort rewards not only Mom but everyone with beautiful visuals and colorful blooms, perfect for springtime!
Cook Something Yummy
Instead of spending the evening at a loud crowded restaurant, with inflated holiday pricing, consider turning the day into an event with family and friends who also want to avoid the madness. You have everything you need, after all: an Everything’s Included® kitchen and spacious backyard! Fire up the grill, put on some music, and impress her with her favorite dish and time to enjoy her new flowers! Plus, one of the best things about Mother’s Day is the spring weather, so why not take the party outside?!
Photograph the Memories
When was the last time you printed a photo? In an age where social media is our public “album”, there’s nothing like the feel of printed photos. It’s easier than ever to make personalized photo books using services nearby that Mom will love looking through over and over again.
Do you know the story of when you were born? What you were like at 2, 5, 10 or 15? What are some of your mom’s favorite memories about you? What about her? Do you know how and where she grew up and her fondest memories of her childhood? Who are the funny, quirky, or best-to-avoid members of your extended family? What’s on her bucket list? Can you help fulfill any of her dream to-dos?
Relaxing Bubble Bath
Take advantage of the spa-inspired bathrooms in every new Lennar home, and help Mom’s worries float away with a lavish bubble bath to end the day! Buy some beautifully scented bath bombs, light some candles, and draw a bath for Mom. Lay out her favorite book, play some soothing music, and pour a glass of wine! Make sure to hide the kids away, so Mom can truly unwind uninterrupted in her personal relaxed spa atmosphere at home.
