Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to celebrate the incredible women in our lives who have shaped us into who we are today. While traditional gifts like handbags, jewelry, and cute trinkets are always appreciated, why not take it a step further this year by creating meaningful experiences that will be cherished for years to come? For those Quality Time mamas, starting new Mother’s Day traditions centered around shared experiences can be the ultimate way to show your appreciation and make Mom feel extra special. 

Here are three meaningful Mother’s Day traditions to start this year: 

  1. Breakfast in Bed: Who doesn’t love breakfast in bed? This year, skip the long restaurant wait and surprise Mom with her favorite homemade breakfast on a tray with fresh flowers. It’s a simple gesture that shows her just how much she’s loved and appreciated. 
  2. Flower Shopping Date: Flowers have a magical way of brightening anyone’s day. Instead of just gifting Mom a bouquet this year, why not turn flower shopping into a memorable bonding experience? Spend the morning together at your local Meijer, sipping coffee or matcha as you browse the colorful blooms. Choose your favorite flowers and create unique bouquets that reflect your personality. Not only will you create beautiful arrangements, but you’ll also make memories that will last a lifetime. If you need a little guidance on arranging your bouquet, we have you covered!

  3. A Gift Basket with Her Favorites: Show Mom how much you know and appreciate her by putting together a thoughtful gift basket filled with all her favorite things. Whether it’s gourmet chocolates, scented candles, or her favorite skincare products, curate a selection of items to make her smile. 

These traditions are thoughtful and heartfelt and provide the opportunity for quality time and lasting memories with Mom. If you’re looking for more floral-inspired tips and tricks to brighten your everyday life, be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook!
