Being spontaneous has its advantages. But when it comes to special occasions like Mother’s Day, it is best to plan ahead of time. So, this Mother’s Day, plan something unique to make your mother feel special, such as fun-filled indoor activities or making her nostalgic.
Breakfast in Bed
Another traditional Mother’s Day treat. Make something from one of her favourite cookbooks to take it to the next level and start a day with a surprise of breakfast in bed.
Turn your home into a movie theatre
All you need is a project, a blank wall or sheet, and your favourite movie to recreate the cinema experience. Don’t forget to bring the popcorn!
Having a candlelight dinner
Turn off all the lights for the evening and do everything by candlelight to create a super romantic atmosphere. Cell phone flashlights are also not permitted!
Play classic card games
Poker, UNO, and many other card games are available; all you need is a deck of cards, and you’ll have a full night of competition ahead of you. You can also play these games online if you want to make it a double date and invite some friends along.
Have a deep conversation
Play games like ‘Never Have I Ever’ and ‘Truth or Dare’ during a sleepover with your mother. Your responses will almost certainly organically lead to some intense (in a good way!) conversation, shaking you out of your routine end-of-the-day discussions.
Go through old photos
Bring out the scrapbooks and photo albums or browse through your digital photos for a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
