5 Ways to Make Mother's Day Extra Special

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, providing the perfect opportunity to celebrate and honour the incredible women in our lives who have raised us, loved us, and supported us.

Regardless of whether you’re a son or a daughter, Mother’s Day is the time to demonstrate your appreciation and gratitude for all that your mom has done for you. Here are some heart-warming ideas for making this Mother’s Day extra special:

Plan a unique outing

One of the best ways to celebrate Mother’s Day is by planning a special outing with your mom. Whether it’s a picnic in the park, a day at the beach, or a trip to a nearby city, spending quality time together is the perfect way to show her how much she means. Make sure to plan ahead and choose an activity that your mom will enjoy.

Cook her favorite meal

Another way to make Mother’s Day special is by treating your mom to her favorite meal. Cook something new and exciting or prepare a dish that she loves. This is an excellent opportunity to show appreciation for all the meals she’s cooked for you over the years. If you’re not much of a cook, you could always order in or take her out to a nice restaurant.

Write a heartfelt letter or card

Words can be incredibly powerful, especially when it comes to expressing love and gratitude. Take some time to write your mom a heartfelt letter or card, telling her how much she means to you and how grateful you are for all that she has done for you. Be specific and include some of your favorite memories and experiences together. This thoughtful gesture will be treasured by your mom forever.

Purchase a thoughtful gift

If you’re looking for a more tangible way to show love and appreciation, consider purchasing your mom a thoughtful gift. It could be a piece of jewellery, a book by her favorite author, or a spa day to help her relax and unwind. Think about her interests and hobbies and choose a gift that shows you know and appreciate her.

Do something special together

Finally, consider doing something special together, whether it’s taking a cooking class, going to a concert, or trying something new. This is a great way to create new memories and strengthen your bond.

Although the best way to honour your mom is to show her you love her every day, Mother’s Day is the one special occasion when you can truly express how much she is loved and appreciated.

    Its a story that reverberates everytime I see my mother… One day, I was disrespectful to my mother, and my father, upon seeing this became angry and told me this…
    I was very young when I fell ill, so ill that I had to be hospitalised (CCU), I was given 5 injections daily for a week and became so weak that I used to bite anyone who held me! I was still breastfeeding those days (I was an infant) and everytime my mother used to feed me I used to bite her nipples until she bled… despite the pain she never once left my side. Imagine the pain she went through, she used to stay awake all day & night, to take care of me as I was very frail, the infection had caused febrile seizure after very high fever.
    My father told me that he held me once during this time and I had bit him so hard that he had tears in his eyes and cried with pain… he told me that throughout those 14 days in hospital (Patna Medical College & Hospital) not once did my mother got angry, not once did she think of not feeding me despite the bites, it took her years for the bite marks to go away! She still feels the pain sometimes, after more than a decade of this happening!
    That day I realised how much my mother loves me and I said sorry to her for being disrespectful, I made a promise to myself that never again shall I disrespect my mother. She deserves all the respect in the world for all that she has done for me…


    It was the fateful day of 1 December 1996, I came home from school and found my mother crying… she was inconsolable, she was incoherent and kept fainting… I came to know that father had an accident at work and his left arm was amputed up to his elbow… I felt my legs shaking & dizzy, I almost fell down.
    By the time we reached the hospital my mother had gained control, it was almost like she had transformed into a different person, she stood rock solid, she was determined and took charge of the situation.
    Our future was bleak, we did not know what would happen to the family, father was the sole breadwinner and we had no idea how the money was supposed to come in future, what would happen to us! We were all so confused, afraid and terrified… but mother, she was like the anchor of the ship!
    She never once lost hope, she was there everywhere…
    we were still being sent to school with our tiffins, clothes washed, ironed, like before, breakfast served with a glass of milk…
    she was there at the hospital, the entire day, looking after father and the various procedures they had to do, grind the stump, take a squarish piece of flesh from his thigh and graft it to the remaining stump of the arm, physiotherapy, medicines, tests and what not… she was there…
    by the time we came back from school, the lunch was made and served to us…
    After ensuring we ate, she took a brief of what happened at school and guided us as to what we need to do till evening…
    Then she was back to the hospital with evening tea for father!

    This hectic and back-breaking routine went on for 2 months, when father was at home, the same routine continued. We never saw her resting, she was always at something!

    Some relative, who had come to visit father, ridicules how he would never be able to drive again… Mother vowed that day that she will make sure that her husband drove… she worked relentlessly at raising the morale of all of us and father, and one day father rode his scooter again, he drove a car too, that day you could she mother beaming, her face bright and a glint in her eyes!

    After almost 2 years father got back to work, things got back to normal for the family!

    Never since that fateful day have I seen a woman as strong as my mother!
    She is STRENGTH personified, I am sure that god made her with lots of iron & steel thrown in…

    The greatest gift I can give to my mother on this day is bring her story out for everyone to read and fathom, like I do, and even wonder, if she is the REAL WONDER WOMAN?


    My maa
    My everything
    Happy mother’s day!!
