Moms are so important for so many reasons. They help raise us, take care of us, and show us the way in life. It’s hard to believe there’s only one holiday each year that celebrates how truly amazing moms are! If it were up to us, every day would be Mother’s Day. And while the calendar limits us to one day a year, that doesn’t mean you can’t take matters into your own hands and make your mom feel special all the time.
In general, moms appreciate the little things. They value cards and notes, handmade art, and home-cooked meals over material items and big gifts. They will take quality time any way they can get it and love to be with their kids. Above all, moms love being moms, because that’s the best job and role in life for those who have kids. With all that moms do for us, it only seems fair that we do our best to try and make them happy.
Thankfully, it isn’t too hard to bring happiness into your mom’s life. There are a lot of things that you can do, ranging from small and thoughtful to big and extravagant. As long as you put some thought and effort into whatever it is you do, it’s sure to be amazing. If you want to do something for your mom but don’t know where to start, we have you covered. This is your guide to how to make your mom happy in six easy steps.
1. Clean the House
Your mom spent years and years cleaning up for you and after you, so why not repay the favor? Cleaning can be so helpful for those who are really busy and have a lot to do. Or even if they don’t, sometimes it’s just nice to have a break from cleaning. Especially if you have a whole house to clean, it can really be exhausting and take a lot of time out of your mom’s day.
You can also clean any space that belongs to your mom, such as her office or business. Even cleaning her car and giving it a car wash would be super helpful. Surprise her and clean the space when she isn’t there. Leave a note for her, so she has something nice to come home to.
2. Cook Her a Good Meal
Your mom has probably cooked you thousands of meals in your lifetime. Give her the night off for once and prepare a special meal for her. If you aren’t a good cook, you’ve got plenty of options. Try one of those food kits that come with everything you need, or choose a really simple meal, like pasta and meatballs with a salad. It’s hard to mess something that simple up, but your mom is sure to appreciate your effort!
If you know someone who is a good cook, you could also ask them for help. They could teach you how to make the meal, and you can even do a trial run before you make it for your mom. There are also tons of videos online that show you step-by-step how to make a delicious meal. You don’t have to go all out and prepare a restaurant-quality meal. The point is you made an effort to do something nice and give your mom the night off from cooking.
3. Treat Her to Some New Bath and Body Products
If your mom enjoys being pampered and loves to take baths or showers, then treat her to some new products. There are a variety of products that she would enjoy using when it comes time to do an at-home spa night. These products don’t have to be expensive or over-the-top; simple and fun is more than fine. Just giving her a few products to use will make her so happy and brighten her day.
Spongellé is the best place to go for bath, shower, and body products. Your mom will love our bath sponges, which act as a three-in-one product. They cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin. Did we mention they smell amazing and come in a ton of scents? If your mom likes to give herself pedicures, then our pedi buffers will be perfect for her. They are similar to bath sponges, but they have a rough side that helps to polish the dead skin off of your feet.
Another option you have is to get her some hand cream to go with her other products. Our hand cream is infused with only the best ingredients that work to soften and soothe even the driest skin. They contain blends of shea butter and hyaluronic acid, along with macadamia seed oil. Your mom will love how smooth her skin is! You can even try and match up the scents between the hand lotions and the body sponges to give her a matching set.
4. Bring Her Flowers
This one small act is sure to make your mom’s day. Who doesn’t love receiving a beautiful bouquet of flowers, even if it’s just a simple arrangement? It shows your mom that you were thinking of her and wanted to do something to make her smile. Go to your local flower shop or market and pick out your mom’s favorite flowers. You can drop them off to her as a small surprise.
You could also plant flowers in your mom’s yard for a gift that lasts a little longer. You can buy seeds (or already bloomed flowers) and plant them around her yard to help brighten things up. Whether you plant them directly in the soil or buy pots to plant the flowers in, we’re sure your mom will love this thoughtful gesture.
5. Help Get Things Done on Her To-Do List
Moms are very busy people, and it seems like they never have enough time in the day. Whether your mom is a stay-at-home mom or has a job, we know she is a busy woman and has a lot to do in the day-to-day. With your help, she could knock off a few items on this list and have a less busy and more relaxing day. There’s probably a never-ending list of things she needs to get done but start by just helping her with a few.
Give her a call and just ask her what’s on her agenda for the day. Then, you can figure out what you can do to make her day easier. Pick up her dry cleaning, go grocery shopping, or fill up her car with gas. No task is too small, and doing any task will be helpful to her. Maybe she needs to take her pet to a grooming appointment or can’t get home to take them for a walk. It’s the little things that add up, and it’s the little things that will be the most helpful.
6. Call Her
This is one of the most simple yet most impactful things that you can do to make your mom happy. Moms just want to know they are on your mind and that you are thinking of them. If you don’t call your mom regularly, consider giving her a call out of the blue. We guarantee it will make her day to hear from her child. The best part is that this costs no money and only has to take a minute of your time.
The impact it makes is completely priceless. People (especially moms) love to know they are being thought of. Even just calling to say a quick hello and I love you will mean the world to them. And if you don’t call your mom regularly, it might be a great idea to do so!
When it comes to moms (and parents in general), it’s not too hard to make them happy. They love acts of service, such as doing chores or helping them, and they love to hear things that come from the heart. Giving your mom a call is one of the best ways to make her happy. If you feel like treating your mom, you can get her some luxurious products from Spongellé to put a smile on her face.
