Another great way to spend time with your mom is by enrolling in a class together.
It could be an exercise class like spin or yoga or a crafty class where you’ll both learn a new skill. Knitting, watercolor painting, pottery, cooking … or maybe you’ve both always wanted to learn how to speak Italian.
This will become your “thing”—something you and your mom do together, something new you have in common, and something more to talk about and bond over!
4. Go shopping together
For some of us, there’s nothing like a little retail therapy to boost the spirits.
For others, shopping is a dreaded but unavoidable task.
We’re all different. But whichever side you’re on, a companion makes it ten times better!
Ask your mom to come shopping with you every-so-often, and make a day of it. Grab a bite to eat, and peruse the shops together.
Not to mention, if you’re holiday shopping, she might have some great gift ideas for certain family members that have you stumped!
5. Give her thoughtful gifts
Speaking of gifts, special occasions are another opportunity to show your love for your mom in a way she’ll always remember.
The key is to think of something she truly loves … or that she doesn’t know she’ll fall in love with!
Better yet, choose something that will last.
Jewelry is a classic and beautiful choice. Something that will take her breath away when she opens it and that she can keep enjoying for the rest of her life.
It doesn’t get better than that!
6. Pick out matching jewelry
You can take your gift idea one step further by giving the gift even more sentimental value.
When you see a piece of jewelry that you know you and your mom would both love, don’t hesitate! If you buy one for each of you, it will be that much more special to her.
Thankfully, this gift doesn’t have to break the bank! Many affordable jewelry retailers offer simply stunning pieces for well under $100 each.
Select pieces that are made of high-quality materials like gold vermeil and sterling silver. This means they’ll last—and they won’t tarnish.
