While it’s great to honor your mom on Mother’s Day, there are ways to celebrate her throughout the entire year as well.

Thank her: Moms do a lot for their kids – of all ages. Make sure you show your mom you appreciate her help by thanking her.

Tell her you love her: We all love our mothers, so don’t be afraid to tell her. A simple “I love you” can go a long way to making a mom feel appreciated.

Call her: For older children who no longer live at home, make sure to call your mom often and check in and ask her how she’s doing.

Help around the house: Surprise your mom by doing the cleaning and taking on extra chores.

Do yard work: Help your mom by pulling some weeds or mowing the lawn.

Make her dinner: While your mom’s cooking might be the best, give her a break and make dinner for her instead.

Pay her a visit: If you’ve moved out of the house, stop by and visit your mom and spend some time with her.

Ask her about her day: While moms tend to always ask their kids how they are doing, instead ask her about what she did and how she’s doing.

Give her a card: You don’t have to wait for special occasions to give your mom a card. Presenting her with one on a non-holiday will make it even more special.

Treat her to a spa day: Moms need to relax. Surprise her with a trip to the spa to pamper herself.
