7 Date Ideas With Mom - Happy Mom Happy Mother's Day

If I was with my mom this special day, it would be wonderful. 

I don't get to see my mom, but if I was with her, I'd wake up and make her breakfast and then just hang out having a bible study or whatever fun discussion. Maybe even go through old photos so she can laugh at my tushie :) 

We might stop somewhere for a quick to go lunch and then walk on the beach with our feet in the water, find a tree to sit under and watch people. Yes watching people is quite the entertainment :) 

I'd either want to cook her dinner or if I can afford it, get her all dressed up and take her to a fancy fmancy restaurant :) 

Then to a movie whether home or theatre.  It will always be here choice of where she wants to be. 

But I'd spend the day, just hanging out with my mom. And it would be wonderful, just because I'm with her, sharing her life. 

Do you do anything special with your mom on the special day? 
Do you just send a card? Flowers or go hang out with her? 


What's your favorite thing to do with your mom?

And if I'm going to give her flowers, she'd definitely be getting orchids :)

Here are 7 date ideas to do with your mom 

1 Splurge
If you can afford to get a hotel booked for the day, then do so and both of you enjoy the pampering and amenities

2. Beauty Walk
If the hotel wont work out, then book a spa day and enjoy being pampered.

3. Nature Walk
If you love the outdoors then go for a picnic. Begin with a hike, run, enjoy either the sunrise or sunset or both together. If it's a hot day and you can end with a beach dip, then yay!

4. Faith Walk
Find a church or just a special time to discuss your spiritual journey together. This can be combined with your picnic or spa day. 

5. Money Walk
Go shopping. What is more fun! Even if it's window shopping. Buy something if you can. Try on outfits you would never think of buying.

Go home and soak those tired feet in home baths and have dessert and tea together. 

6. Food Walk
Cook something together and enjoy it! 

7.  Fun Walk
Find music at home or away and dance. Just dance! 

However you celebrate, just remember it is not about the gifts and the media hype. It's about sharing precious time and thought with the mother God has given you. 
So go ahead and plant new and good memories!

  1. This is a nice post. I rarely see my mom, she is in another state. But if I did, she'd like a dinner out and to see her grandkids. Both make her happy. :)

    1. Thank you Rosey.

      Definitely the grandkids. She'd probably leave me for later just to see her little loves :)
      I feel so sad that she doesn't get to see them.

  2. I always see my mom on Mother's Day because it always falls around my birthday too (May 13th) - and often Mother's Day IS my birthday date too. This year she will come up for the whole weekend and watch the kids Friday night so hubby and I can have a date night. Then I am taking her out to a Mother's Day Social Gala at my church on Saturday. Sunday will be breakfast - made by our spouses! - church and then probably a nice walk after lunch. Just a nice relaxing day - maybe some time in my garden. It's always a lovely time.

  4. I love the ideas. My mom isn't much for walking, so I'd probably share a meal and maybe get a little spa treatment with her.

  15. My mother lives in another state, but I call her each Mother's Day, make her special card, and send her flowers. For myself, I prefer it when my family keeps the day low-key, a call, a text, a card, ... DH took treated me to a burger & fries from Five Guys because he knew I wanted one, and afterwards two scoops of ice cream from Baskin Robbins. It was a lovely day well spent!
