Thoughtful Ways To Surprise Mom This Mothers Day

thoughtful mothers day ideas

Flowers from Bloompop’s Mothers Day collection

After too much time spent cleaning up messes and dropping the kids off at school, say “thanks, mom!” with a thoughtful gift just for her. Sure, you could just buy chocolates and flowers and leave it at that - but how about something more creative but just as easy?

We’ve done the dirty work creating thoughtful ideas for you, so show mom how much you love her this Mothers Day!

1. Win her heart with food

Wake up just one hour earlier to prepare a Sunday brunch for mom. Especially if you plan and prep your food ahead, it’ll be a snap. And to make cooking up brunch even easier, this guide by Southern Living has ideas for different types of moms (do you have a chocoholic mom, or maybe a surf and turf mom?).

Cooking not in your skill set? Mothers Day brunch at a restaurant is always appreciated! All you need to do is figure out a restaurant she’ll like. Don’t forget to make reservations!

2. Send her on a local adventure

Adventures don’t need to cost an arm and a leg, and you don’t have to spend hours and hours planning. Send mom on a local adventure to places you visited with her. Create a scavenger hunt using small notecards or sticky notes leading her to her favorite section of the library, an often-visited spot at the park, or even around the house. Ideas for the scavenger hunt prize location: a bubble bath just for her, a loved one holding her favorite flowers in her favorite colors, or her favorite restaurant!

3. Show love from a distance

Living miles apart can make celebrating Mothers Day even sweeter. If you can’t celebrate in person, send mom a handwritten note and a flower arrangement that you helped create. Florists love creating one-of-a-kind designs to show how special moms are. With Designers Choice flowers by Bloompop, a few mouse-clicks will let our top-notch florist partners know what kind of flowers and colors your mom prefers, and then have them sent anywhere in the USA. Easy peasy and the perfect way to make mom smile.
