Creative Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day

in EXPERIENCES

By Kylie Ora Lobell

This year, instead of going to the typical brunch, dinner, or movie to celebrate Mother’s Day, why not offer your mom a unique experience? The following are some fun mother daughter activities that she won’t see coming. (They’re actually great for mothers and sons, too.)

Enjoy a Brand-New Experience Together

Choosing mother daughter activities that neither of you have ever tried before is a surefire way to make them memorable. Poke around on LivingSocial to find cool things to do in your ‘hood or hers. You might be able to take her to new heights with a hot air balloon ride, or make fun memories in a wine-drinking art class. Sharing in a new experience is a great way to honor your bond—don’t forget your camera!

Make Mother’s Day an Affair to Remember

Broadway playIs your mom always singing showtunes to herself? If she’s a theater fanatic, a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day is by treating her to a night out on the town, complete with a live performance of one of her favorite musicals or dramas.

A quick look around Broadway.com is sure to yield some good ideas, as there are likely a number of popular plays being shown in a theater or auditorium near you.

Spring for a Quick Cruise

Looking for a different kind of adventure? You can extend your Mother’s Day celebrations and take her on a one- or two-day cruise through cheapOair.

Cruise shipsGo somewhere the weather is a little warmer—or a little cooler—or just someplace where the scenery is a little less gray.

This is an especially good option if your mom is one who always insists she doesn’t have time for a vacation.

A weekend excursion to an exotic locale might be just what she needs.

Your mother is no ordinary mom, so why should you celebrate Mother’s Day in the same old way? If you surprise her with one of these special mother daughter activities, it’ll show that you put in time, thought, and effort. If you’re not already her favorite kid, it might just put you over the top.

Make this Mother's Day memorable. Find a one- or two-day cruise through cheapOair's website, and book some tickets for you and your mom!
