4 Easy Ways to Make Mom Feel Super Awesome

May 7th, 2013

With just a few days left until Mother’s Day, we’ve put together a short list of things you can do to make it extra special for the women who’ve made a difference in your life:

1. Call her regularly. Maybe it’s trivial, but making an effort to connect is huge.

2. Send her cupcakes, just because. But especially this Sunday.

3. Send an email every time you have a memory from your childhood. “Hey, Mom – remember when we’d go get ice cream after the Memorial Day parade?” She’ll love that you acknowledge the little efforts she made to make your childhood memorable.

4. Take her to lunch or dinnner. Nothing beats face time.

Get in on the Foiled Cupcakes Mother’s Day special and you can get in on #2 like that {snap!}. Time’s a-tickin’, so get clickin’!
