Mother’s Day isn’t just about Mothers—it’s about strong women in your life who have made a real difference and have played a role in defining who you are today. Think: Mothers, Grandmothers, Aunts, Teachers, Neighbors, Religious Leaders, even a Boss at work.

Consider these great ideas to show honor and respect to these women. There is bound to be a perfect idea to showcase your gratitude.
Breakfast in bed. Why not start her day right and make breakfast—or bring over doughnuts or breakfast sandwiches? Waking him to a delicious thank you is pretty much an ideal way to start the day!
Do an activity together. How about creating a few memories? What does she love? What might she like to share with you? You could go on a walk or hike, bake a favorite family recipe or enjoy old photo albums together.
Have lunch. How about a picnic basket packed with goodies and spreading a blanket on the front lawn? Bring a speaker and enjoy her favorite music, reminisce and thank her for all she has done for you.
Do some chores. Take a look around the house or apartment. Pull weeds, plant flowers or fix that cabinet door. Sweat equity doesn’t cost a penny, but lending a hand makes a big difference.
Write her a note. Write her a note of thanks and send it in the mail. We live in a world of texting, which is convenient. But sending a note adds a sense of gratitude that simply can’t be found in a text or Facebook post.
Give her hug. A hug means so much. Let her know how much she matters to you.
