When you have a mom that provides for you and nurtures you throughout the year, it can feel like a lot of pressure picking out a gift that is just right for her. Instead of focusing on one perfect item, fill the whole day from start to finish with extra love and care. Mother’s Day is the one great opportunity we get to show our moms how much they mean to us. In this blog, you will learn how to perfectly plan Mother’s Day for the perfect mom, from the planning the night before, all the way through dinner on the day of Mother’s Day.
The Night Before Mother's Day: Preparation
When you have the best mom, last minute plans won’t do. For that reason, we wanted to make sure to remind you that planning Mother’s Day should always be done in advance . And what do all moms love? A clean home. This does not mean you have to deep clean the whole house or hire a maid, this could simply look like making sure all of the sheets and towels are clean the night before, so your mom can enjoy nice, fresh linens. This will also help you prepare for the spa night you are setting up for the evening of Mother’s Day, but we will get more into that later. The second step in the planning process is making sure you have planned the arrival of flowers for the morning of Mother’s Day. Costco is an easy and affordable grocery store where you can get beautiful bouquets just in time for Mother’s Day. Finally, make sure you have the grocery shopping done to make your mom a special breakfast in bed the morning of, and be sure not to forget a personal card to show your mom just how much you love her.
The Perfect Morning of Mother's Day: Breakfast in Bed
The main goal for this Mother’s Day is to rid the day of anything stressful, starting with making breakfast for your mom. Before your mom wakes up, it is a great idea to make your mom her favorite breakfast and serve it to her in bed. This way she does not even have to start the day with a decision, and she gets to wake up to a plate full of her favorite food. When you bring her breakfast, you can also bring your mom her flowers and set them on her bedside table to enjoy while she eats breakfast. And make sure you don’t forget her card signed with a lovely message just from you! If your mom is a coffee drinker, it might be cute to try your hand at some latte art. Finally, don’t forget we are working towards minimizing stress for the day, so once your mom has finished breakfast, your next job is to grab the dishes and clean up before you embark on your day plans.
Day Plan Possibilities for Mother's Day
There are endless options for what you can do for your mom during the day, but it is important to remember whatever activity you pick should be something your mom wouldn’t normally do for herself. The idea here is to treat her to something special. Some suggestions we have for things you could do for your mom on Mother’s Day are:
- Take her shopping to pick out an item she has been wanting for a while
- Go for a picnic in the park or lay by the pool, relaxing and reading if your mom is more the outdoorsy type
- Or you could always spend some good, old-fashioned family time together playing board games, cards or watching one of your family's favorite movies
Remember, your mom spends her whole year taking care of the family, so it's important to show her how much you appreciate her. Filling the agenda full of her favorite activities for the day will help take some stress off your mom’s plate.
Setting Up a Spa Night for the Evening of the Best Mother's Day Ever
After a long day spent doing whatever your mom likes, she is probably going to need a little time to rest and relax before dinner. This is why Marbela is your #1 go-to for Mother's Day.

As the shower heats up and water hits the fizzy, it will fill the bathroom with a wonderful aromatherapy that is perfect for extra relaxation. If you are going out to dinner as a family for the night of Mother’s Day, it would also be a great touch to pick out a nice outfit for your mom, pair it with some new jewelry and have it laid out for her when she gets out of the shower.
Dinner Plans for Mother's Day
If you are wanting to take your mom out for dinner on Mother’s Day it is important to remember that any restaurant is going to be busy. For this reason, it is a good idea to call the restaurant in advance and make a reservation if they take them. If you are not planning on going out to dinner that is perfectly fine too. A relaxing night in will always do the trick. For this reason, it might be a great idea to get take out from your mom’s favorite place so she is free to relax for the rest of the night.
Great moms deserve to be celebrated plenty more than one day a year, but on Mother’s Day the celebration should be top tier and the gifts should match.
