She’s the woman who does it all—the one, the only: Mom. This year, show your love and appreciation with a memorable Mother’s Day celebration that’s all about her. These DIY ideas are thoughtful, personal, and easy to pull off with any budget and a little imagination. Whether it’s a rejuvenating afternoon of self-care, a night in with her favorite movie, or a picnic in the park, these ideas are certain to make this Mom’s Day the best one yet. 

1. Let Mom sleep in and make an easy family breakfast

For many busy moms (is there any other kind?) an extra hour under the covers is priceless. While she snoozes, take care of breakfast with a celebration-worthy grazing board that’s easy to assemble with store-bought biscuit dough, pastries from your store’s bakery, and an array of sweet and savory spreads. And don’t forget to clean up after so she can enjoy that breakfast stress-free! 

2. Plan an easy picnic in the backyard or park

Celebrate spring and the woman of the hour with a picnic outdoors. Let kids weigh in on the menu and enlist their help to prepare outdoor-friendly dishes for a memorable meal and activity in one. No sunshine? No problem. Arrange blankets and pillows on the floor and serve a rainy day picnic inside on trays or sheet pans.

3. Make an edible bouquet

Little ones can help assemble these delicious bouquets that are a gift, appetizer, and centerpiece all in one. A medley of colorful veggies are the “flowers” attached to crunchy celery and carrot “stems” inside a glass jar with ranch “soil” for dipping. 

4. Clean and organize your home

Lightening the workload is a thoughtful way to show you care. Tidying up around the house is a great place to start. If it seems like a big job, start a week or two in advance and devote just a few minutes to tackling each room or task. It will add up to a big gesture that she’s certain to appreciate on Mother’s Day.

5. Spoil her with relaxation time

You don’t have to visit a fancy spa to pamper mom this Mother’s Day. Give the gift of relaxation in a jar with DIY bath bombs customized with her favorite scent. Set the mood by lighting candles in the bathroom and eliminating noisy distractions so Mom can have a few hours of well-deserved relaxation.

6. Treat her to a night at the movies without leaving home

Curling up on the couch with Mom’s favorite movie might be just the ticket for a family activity she’ll love. Create a red-carpet theater experience at home with a concession stand of popcorn and her favorite treats.
