Adventures with Mom for Mother’s Day

One of my favorite quotes is “Buy experiences, not things.” An experience elicits more happiness and holds more memories than any material good. This Mother’s Day, instead of buying your mom a designer handbag or an overpriced piece of jewelry, do something fun that you BOTH will enjoy together.

Here are ten fun Mother’s Day ideas that I personally enjoy with my mom. Experience these fun adventures with your role model not only on Mother’s Day, but any other time throughout the year!

 


1,  Attend a Broadway play or concert! If you are seeing a matinee, a lovely brunch beforehand will allow you both to catch up and share stories. When attending an evening show, grab a nice dinner at her favorite restaurant.

3, Get active by taking a morning hike, yoga or fitness class or stroll around your local park. Grab a healthy lunch at a cute café afterwards and enjoy each other’s company.

4, Take a cooking class and immerse yourselves in different cultural cuisines. You’ll become the foodies you both aspire to be.

5, Become the next Picasso and enjoy your favorite beverage at a local paint and sip class. Make sure to bring hors d’oeuvres to snack on!
Clearly, my mom has more artistic skills than I do. We made peacock trees and drank Kung Fu Girl Riesling at Painting with a Twist in Glen Rock, NJ.

6, Enjoy a relaxing day and get pampered with a well-deserving facial, massage, mani-pedi or blowout at your local spa or salon. Top it off with a light lunch at a hidden gem.

I love spending time with Mom!


7, Share laughs by taking a fun salsa or folk dancing class. Celebrate your skills with a refreshing margarita or beer afterwards.

9, Whip up your mom’s favorite foods and make a picnic at the local lake or park. Don’t forget the orange juice and champagne to make mimosas!

10, Do something daring and adventurous!

 

 No matter what obstacles life throws at me or the risks I choose to take, my mom will always have my back!

Have a beautiful and Happy Mother’s Day!
