Even though Mother’s Day has come and gone, moms — and other parental figures in your life — should be appreciated all year round. While many families think spoiling mom involves spending money to buy her things, what she actually wants is quality time with the people she cares most about.
There are so many great ways to celebrate the parental figures in your life all year long — here are five ways to show them the love and appreciation they deserve.
1. Arrange a catered breakfast at home
Instead of rushing around in the morning to get dressed, wrangling everyone into the car and waiting in line at a crowded restaurant, spend a peaceful morning together with the ones most important to you! Give your loved one a chance to relax by catering a delicious breakfast at home, perhaps with pancakes and fresh fruit. With the meal taken care of, you can enjoy quality time together and create new memories around the breakfast table.
2. Help with house chores/cleaning
Let’s face it — cleaning the house is a job in and of itself! Parents have spent too much time cleaning up after everyone else and making a house feel like a home. Give them a much-deserved break and pick up the slack with the house chores, or hire a cleaning service. This way they get more quality time with you and the family — and less time worrying about things around the house.
3. Book a family photo shoot
With busy schedules and ongoing commitments, it can be hard to get a good family photo. Round up your family to capture snapshots the whole family can cherish for years to come, all while creating new memories together.
If you’re looking to capture snapshots with your loved ones AND enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast together, Pearl Milling Company has you covered.
From now until June 2, you can enter yourself or a loved one for a chance* to Stack Up the Snapshots at StackUptheSnapshots.com/PearlMillingCompany. One lucky mom or parental figure will win a complimentary family photo shoot with a professional photographer, a delicious catered pancake breakfast, Pearl Milling Company product, and a $300 gift card to purchase an experience or service of the winner’s choice. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. See official rules for complete details on how to enter.
4. Plan a weekend getaway or experience
Go somewhere to create new memories in a new place! They will love the chance to take a couple days away from responsibilities to spend quality time with the family — and maybe even get the chance to enjoy some tranquil alone time. Whether it’s a weekend getaway to explore a new town, going on a scenic nature walk, or trying a restaurant they’ve had their eye on, you can tailor the experience to make it a weekend to remember.
5. Treat them to a relaxing spa day
Parenting is a lot of work, so a chance to decompress and unwind after a long week (or month, or year!) is much deserved. Give them a chance to be pampered with a spa service like a facial, a massage, or maybe a mani-pedi! After a relaxing day, they will be refreshed and recharged ready to spend quality time with the family.
Our moms and parental figures do a lot for us, so it can feel like no matter what we give them, it isn’t enough to say thank you. While gifts and flowers are sweet and thoughtful, quality time with your parents, especially when life is busy and chaotic, can be the most priceless and meaningful gift of all!
