3. Make your gift and have a fun night out at the same time with Paint Nite.

Plus if you’re not planning on seeing your mom till later in the day, this can be the perfect treat for her to wake up to and know you’re thinking of her.

5. Put down that lavender bath set and get your hands dirty making your own home-made scrubs! How-to-Make-DIY-Sugar-ScrubsI can hear my mom now, “anything home-made, is made with love.” Right down to eggs on toast for breakfast, which my mother refers to as love on toast. You can make great scrubs with regular items you probably already have, like sugar and coffee. The possibilities are endless and you can cater to your mother’s favorite scents from gingerbread, eucalyptus, and of course chocolate.
