Mother’s Day is always celebrated the second Sunday in May. Mother’s Day recognizes mothers, grandmothers, step-mothers, all mother figures and mothers to-be! Usually Mother’s Day Celebrations include going to church, brunch, dinner, and buying flowers and cards.
With the uncertainty of the world these days, there is one thing that will always remain -The love that we all have for our Mother’s! While we are uncertain whether or not restaurants will be open to take Mom out to brunch for her special day, most are still offering amazing takeout. If take-out isn’t an option, nothing shows your love more than breakfast in bed or a home cooked meal that she doesn’t have to make.
Moms always take care of everyone else, so a Mother’s Day Gift should take care of her!

Everyone’s life is hectic and busy, particularly now, so it’s important to spend quality time with our loved ones. It is specifically important to celebrate mom on Mother’s Day! Over all of these years she has been your chauffeur, cook, maid, teacher, shoulder to cry on, and most of all your biggest cheerleader. Show mom how much she means to you and make her day special and all about her. Remember, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to show mom you love her. Just spending time together and a heartfelt action as simple as making her breakfast in bed means more to her than anything else.
