On Sunday, May 12, you have the chance to celebrate someone who is arguably the most important person in your life: your mom. Mother's Day is all about showering your mom with love, appreciation, and gratitude. It's the one day a year that is all about your mother (or at least, it should be), and it's important to make sure she actually feels that way. There are plenty of things you can do to make your mama feel like a true queen for the day, and lots of these things can be turned into annual traditions that both she and you can look forward to throughout the year. If you don't have traditions already, you may want to use this year as your time to start new traditions for Mother's Day.
The nice thing about doing the same thing (or a variation of the same thing) every year is that you're really making memories you can remember together. Sure, you can do the basic Mother's Day stuff and still have a fantastic day: go out to dinner, make her breakfast in bed, buy some plants and start gardening, among other things. There's nothing wrong with this stuff! But if you want to branch out and try something new that you can do each year after that, there are plenty of other ideas out there.
Below are a few new traditions you should start for Mother's Day. Any of them will make your mom feel appreciated and loved — and give you both some great bonding opportunities.
