There’s that special something about mothers that makes them beyond remarkably special. Little wonder humanity chose a day to show appreciation for all the love, care, and sacrifice characteristic of every mother.

However, dates differ across different countries. While some countries like the UK and Nigeria chose Sunday, March 11, 2018, to celebrate our Queenies, the US and some countries chose Sunday, May 13, 2018. Surely, this goes to underline the irreplaceable nature of mothers in our worlds. No woman, no cry, huh.

So, if you’re looking to celebrate your mom or any motherly figure in your life this year, here are top 5 things to do for Mothers’ Day.

Call your mom

Sometimes, the little things we overlook are the best of all. Trust us, calling your mom on Mother’s Day is a really nice thing to do for your mom for free – well, almost free.

Go to the movies

Whisk dad’s heartthrob away to the cinema. Seeing a movie together is one of the surest things to do for your mom to make her happy. This should also allow more time to connect in a fun way and make momma feel brand new. Plus, you can expect dad to up his game shortly after.

Take a vacation

There’s no better way to relive all those wonderful childhood memories than to take a vacation with mom. Destinations could be some longtime memorable spots etched in gold to somewhere new and exotic. Mom would certainly love it.

Send some flowers

There’s something magical about flowers. You can always trust the right floral pick to do the trick on mom’s special day. Add some cupcakes and you have the right mix to brighten mom’s mood. Well, except you’re absolutely sure mom would prefer some freshly cut vegetables to dewy roses.

Plan a Homecoming

Hustle and bustle will keep many families apart until the major holidays, and in some cases, for years. Why not schedule a homecoming for Mother’s Day? Having everyone together in one room will surely make this year’s Mother’s Day somewhat special for mom. Just be sure to keep cranky siblings far from each other.

Here’s wishing all moms, superwomen, and heroes around the world Happy Mother’s Day celebrations in advance.
