Every year, you do your best to come up with new ways to show the mom in your life how much you care. After all, your mom has helped to create countless memories and special moments for you over the years, and on her special day, you want to pay it forward.

This Mother’s Day, give your mom the gift of a truly memorable experience that will warm her heart and stay with her for years to come. Rather than blow your budget on expensive gifts or a pricey dinner in a crowded restaurant, create a unique experience, designed specifically for the special mom in your life.

Whether your mom likes to spend time exploring in the great outdoors, relaxing at the beach or creating cool crafts and artwork, there are easy ways to give your mom the best gift of all, and that is always your time together.

Here are a few simple ways to help you create the most memorable Mother’s Day experience for your mom, yet. Cheers to her, and Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Commonwealth at York!

Picnic & Play
Moms who love to spend time outdoors, soaking up sunshine, walking barefoot in the grass and dining al fresco will love a Mother’s Day picnic with the ones she loves. Gather up the whole family, or head out with just the two of you, and pack your mom’s favorite foods, beverages, sunscreen, bug spray and a comfy blanket. Bring a deck of cards, a frisbee, a travel chess board or the family dog and make it an afternoon of your mom’s favorite things.

Beach Mom
Does your mom love long beach days, kicked back in the sand, relaxing with a cool drink and soaking up the sun beside the sounds of the sea? Pack a beach bag, her favorite snacks, a portable music player and your mom (of course), and head to nearby Buckroe Beach or Virginia Beach for a day at the ocean with the ones she loves.

Culinary Creations
Does your mom love to cook and love learning to cook, even more? Sign up to take a cooking class together, and create a memorable meal with her that neither of you will ever forget. If a cooking class isn’t in your budget or schedule, pick a recipe she loves, purchase all of the ingredients and invite her over to cook with you. The best part will be sharing in the process together, and being able to savor every home-cooked bite after!

Craft Time
Is your mom a DIY genius? Choose a craft project she’ll love, gather all the necessary materials and invite her over for a day of crafting. Whether it’s making your own soap or bath bombs, picture frames or spring wreaths, you can’t go wrong when you’re creating with the most creative person you know.
