Mother’s Day falls just once a year (don’t forget May 10!), but it’s important to remember that moms never stop being moms. They love us every day, and they never stop worrying about us, no matter how old we get.
When we stop and think about all our moms have done (and still do) for us, devoting just one day a year to show them our appreciation seems insufficient. So at least we can show them a thoughtful day that celebrates how truly incredible they are.
Making your mom feel relaxed and stress-free is crucial on this day—she shouldn’t have to lift a finger. So whether you deliver her a luxurious breakfast-in-bed or organize the brunch of her dreams, we’ve compiled the mega mother’s day guide to end all mother’s day guides.
From a full-fledged brunch menu (cocktails included), to DIY mother’s day gifts, we’ve gotcha covered.
This is to all the moms who drove us to and from sleepovers, and birthday parties, and soccer, dance, and swim practices. It’s for all the moms who are still the first person we call when we have news, both good and bad.
We love you mom, and we’ll never stop needing you.
Now let’s celebrate MOM!
