There’s no denying it: moms are pretty special. From deftly managing grocery store tantrums to juggling after-school activities, grocery shopping and somehow keeping track of everyone’s belongings (all while often balancing their professional life, too), it’s clear Mom deserves to be celebrated. However, if your old tradition of going to a prix-fixe brunch no longer interests your mom, you're going to have to get a little more creative and plan an out-of-the-box celebration this year. So, we’ve composed this list of 50 Mother’s Day activities she's sure to love.
There are plenty to choose from, whether you’re looking for something to do after that Mother’s Day brunch in your backyard or searching for something to complement that Mother’s Day gift you got her. For the moms who love the great outdoors, why not do some gardening or hiking together? Or if your mom is more of a homebody, there are a ton of things she can get into in the comfort of her own home—from painting to taking a cooking class. (And here's another great idea: send this list to your partner…you know, just in case they need some ideas.)
