Are you ready to enjoy a Mother’s Day that is more about experiences than gifts? If so, take a peek at these 7 budget friendly ways to enjoy Mother’s Day with your family! There are all sorts of experiences you can enjoy together that are fun, budget friendly, and sure to help Mom enjoy her special day. Here is how you can get started.
1. Enjoy a matinee.
Take Mom to see a movie of her choice during the matinee time slot. You will be about half the cost of an evening ticket, which leaves you a little cash to grab a light lunch or coffee afterwards. And of course, let Mom choose the flick!
2. Take her for tea.
Find a local restaurant or bed and breakfast that offers afternoon tea and a light lunch. Mom will love the relaxing atmosphere and time to catch up with you over tea. If you want, you can even get all dressed up and fancy! How fun would wearing fancy hats and gloves be?
3. Plant something together.
Grab some seedlings (flowers, herbs, etc.) and some colorful pots. Spend an afternoon planting together. When you are done Mom will have enjoyed some quality time with you as well as have a potted plant to take home.
4. Bake together.
Grab some baking supplies and bake up a storm together. Make cookies, muffins, brownies, or whatever Mom’s specialty is. It is a great way to share family recipes while bonding together in the kitchen. When done, enjoy your treats with coffee.
5. Visit a local park.
Spend the afternoon enjoying a local park or zoo together. Take in the air, the sights, and just enjoy each other and the ambiance. If you wish, you can even pack your own lunch to enjoy when you are done.
6. Head to a local bookstore.
Does Mom love to read? Then head to a local book store. Enjoy an author reading, book signing, or just grab a coffee and treat Mom to a new book or two.
7. Volunteer together.
Spend the day sharing your blessings with others. Prepare a meal at a local soup kitchen or volunteer together at a local pet shelter. It will feel great helping others while celebrating the blessings you already have.
