Tribute to your Mother on Mother's Day

At a loss on how to pay a perfect homage to your mom? TheHolidaySpot recommends 6 small steps that would help you take a giant leap towards giving her an ideal Mother's Day tribute. Don't moon around now. Put these to good use.

  • Start the morning by giving your mom a nice Mother's Day card. It would be best if the text of your card is in the form of a song or a poem. Have your card apologize to her on your behalf for all your past misdeeds and thank her for all the pains she has taken for you right from the day you were born.
    (Many families begin Mother's Day with breakfast in bed. Get up before she does and if you are a kid, with a little help from your Dad, you can sneak into the kitchen and prepare her favorite meal. A Mother's Day breakfast can consist of anything your mom likes. You can hand over a pretty Mother's Day card when she has finished her breakfast.)
  • As soon as she has finished reading it, give her a bear hug and plant a big kiss on her cheek. Even if you're no longer the little kid that you used to be, it won't be a problem. It'll rekindle for her the memory of those happy-ol'-days when you were in your diapers and often times threw your arms around her neck.
  • Present her with a bouquet of flowers. It is the easiest and cheapest way, yet probably the best way to tell your mom what she means to you.
    A Tribute to a Mother on Mother's Day
  • If possible, give your mother a break. Let her take the day off. If you want to make it big, send her off to a resort on her own or with friends. Or gift her a package at a parlor or a spa (accompany her if possible). If you want to celebrate the day at home, prepare a nice recipe for her (one that she likes) in the afternoon/evening and give her a treat.
  • If cooking is not your forte, take her to a first-class restaurant in the evening and order a table for two. Set the day aside just for her and go out to a quiet lunch or dinner. Choose a place she has fond memories of, if you can arrange it. Order her favorite dish and give her a treat.
  • You know her choices and preferences. So hand over to her a gift that she'll like after the supper is finished. Watch a big smile light up her face.
  • Post dinner, take her to a favorite haunt, any place that was frequented by you with her in your childhood (a park, a former residence, a street etc). Re-live the memory of those golden olden days when her hand held your little fingers to protect you from the big bad world. It's sure to make her nostalgic, making her wonder how far you two have come since
  • Culminate your Mother's Day celebrations by handing over to her anything that has been achieved by you (say a trophy, a medal or a certificate). Dedicate it to her and say that it is she, not you, who has acquired it.

Things to remember :

  • Fighting with your mom on Mother's Day is a strict no-no. Restrain yourself even if you disagree with her on some point. A quarrel on mother's day will spoil the whole day for both of you.
  • Your M-Day celebrations should be planned and executed keeping in mind her preferences, not yours. It's her day, remember?
  • Plan ahead of the big day. Choose and collect flowers and all from beforehand. Reserve a couple of seats at your preferred restaurant ahead of your M-day celebrations. This will ensure a smooth execution of all your plans on the big day, just as you want it to be.
  • As for the gift, get her something that she'll cherish, even if it's not tangible and is utterly indulgent such as a spa treatment or a vacation with her friends. Do not present her with utility clothes or gifts that take a lot of effort to assemble. Spend some time and thought in choosing the right gift that will suit her tastes. A well thought-out gift will make your mom remember the day every time she uses it.
  • Last but not the least, be sincere in your celebrations of this day. Think yourself lucky to have got the chance to pay a tribute to that special person who cared less of her pains to let you see the light of this world. How many can have it?
