The Ultimate Mother’s Day Guide: 20+ Mother’s Day Ideas

Mother’s Day 2020 is just around the corner. In fact, it’s on Sunday, May 10th, which is only two weeks and one day away! Are you ready?

In lieu of one of my (new – ever since I had my son in 2017) favorite holidays, I wanted to provide my people (you are my people!) with some of the best resources for Mother’s Day.

I sought out some of my favorite mommy friends and bloggers and asked them what their suggestions for Mother’s Day were – and they sure did come through! This post has Mother’s Day crafts, Mother’s Day gift ideas, Mother’s Day recipes, Mother’s Day activities, and so much more!

So, settle under that nice cozy blanket of yours, grab yourself a hot tea, and let’s get to it!

Top 20+ Mother’s Day Ideas for 2020

Store-Bought Gifts for Mother’s Day

Let’s start with the category that most (ahem…) men will be looking for frantically come Saturday May 9th! The gifts!

I have another category below for homemade gifts and DIY’s, but let’s just start with the gifts you can buy online and have shipped to your mom.

DIY Gifts & Crafts for Mother’s Day

Let’s face it – although women definitely want something store-bought for Mother’s Day, they also really appreciate anything you make on your own – whether it’s from her husband, children, or parents – it doesn’t matter. It’s all super special and women are very grateful for handmade gifts.

Let’s get right into the top handmade gifts to make (or have your children make) for Mother’s Day 2020.

Activities for Mother’s Day

I had quite a few readers and colleagues send me ideas for activities to do on Mother’s Day – and I loved them. Since we’re living in quarantine right now, we are a bit limited – but with the following ideas, I don’t think anyone will feel limited at all on Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day Recipes

Recipes – yum. Makes me hungry just thinking of all the delicious food we could make for Mother’s Day! I have a great list of recipes from various bloggers and friends and I know you will find these super useful!

Miscellaneous Mother’s Day Things

There are a few more suggestions I got from friends and fellow bloggers – but theirs really don’t belong in a certain category (which is why I’m listing them here).

Take Aways

Well friends, I hope you have enjoyed my Mother’s Day Resources Roundup! It sure has been fun getting to know some of the women who gave me these ideas. I can’t wait to hear about how you are planning to use these ideas to make Mother’s Day that much more special this year.

Iโ€™ve never been the type to want something store bought over handmade. Its the effort and thought put into a gift that matters most. My favorite gifts ate the handmade ones actually.
