Your mom? Well, she can be your everything. She can be your best friend, your no. 1 fan, your sister, or anyone who’s always there for you. From the very start, she’s one of those who give you unconditional love and care.
This coming Thanksgiving, let her know how much you love her, care for her, and value the things she did or continuously doing for you. No matter how small or big the surprise is, she will definitely love and appreciate it.
The traditional Thanksgiving celebration can be a tribute to the love, time, and care that your mom gave to the entire family. Instead of the celebration you used to do every Thanksgiving, why not dedicate it as day to surprise your mom?
If you have no idea how to surprise your mom on Thanksgiving, then keep reading this post.
So, let’s get started!
- Breakfast in Bed
When your mom wakes up in the morning, one of the first things that comes to her mind is preparing you breakfast. As you open your eyes and head your way to the dining area, everything is all set.
Instead of letting her cook breakfast, surprise her with breakfast in bed. Give her a break from the kitchen. You can start her day with a fun note in the pancakes together with her favorite coffee or tea. To make it extra special, do not forget her favorite flowers and put them on her bedside table.
- Household Chores
Because of the household chores, your mom has no time for her hobbies. Look for her to the to-do list and do all her chores, from buying groceries to cleaning the house. If you can complete all her tasks for that day, she will appreciate it a lot.
Give your mom a time to relax and rest from the daily chores. If she wants to go somewhere else, just let her. If she wants to do her hobby on that day, just let her.
- Favorite Meal
How many times has your mom cooked for you? For sure, it’s countless. After all, she will never get tired of cooking your favorite food. This coming Thanksgiving, how about cooking her favorite meal?
You can plan a surprise for your mom by preparing a sumptuous lunch or dinner. Make sure that the menu of the day has all her favorite dishes. Besides, you can make the atmosphere the same with her favorite restaurant, and you will be one serving her.
- Class Together
Do you and your mom want to try baking? Is your planning to try new recipes or new cooking techniques? Does your mom love dancing? Well, you can try to take a class together.
For sure, your mom still has some things that she wants to learn. So, make this an opportunity to make that in reality. Whether it is dancing, painting, cooking, or baking, you can schedule a class with her and have a great bonding activity together. At the end of the day, you gained new, beautiful memories together.
- At-home Spa
During Thanksgiving, a lot of salons might be fully-booked. Instead of driving her to a salon, it’s a nice idea to set up an at-home spa.
With so many responsibilities to deal with, your mom deserves to be pampered. You can help her relax and enjoy the entire day without thinking about all her responsibilities by transforming her bathroom into a spa. You can use her favorite essential oils, play calming music, and add some scented candles. That at-home spa setup will give her peace and tranquility while making her feel rejuvenated.
- Balloon Bouquet
Give your mom a little surprise on the morning of Thanksgiving with a lovely balloon bouquet. You can cut out letters that will complete a small message for her. Then, punch a hole at the top of each letter and string them onto the helium-filled balloons using the twine.
You can fasten the balloon bouquet to her chair or bed. Make sure to space them a bit. This cheerful display will make her smile genuinely.
Does your mom have a sweet tooth? You can bake her favorite cupcakes or try the candy flower cupcakes. Each cupcake can have a different look, such as garden rose, daisy, dahlia, sunflower, and geranium.
You can add gummies to the top of the frosted cupcakes. So, you’ll have tasty, adorable desserts on Thanksgiving while showing your love for her.
- Pop-Up Card
Instead of buying greeting cards, it would be more meaningful to give your mom a card that you made by yourself. You can go for a pop-up card and add details that she can relate to. If she’s into gardening, then you can make a flower-themed card. If knitting is her hobby, then give her a knit-themed card.
Other than the design, do not forget to write a sincere, heartfelt message for her. Take it as an opportunity to tell all your feelings for her. You can put it on her bedside table or any spot that she can easily notice. So, as she wakes up in the morning, she’ll be surprised by your card.
- Personalized Gifts
For a unique, exclusive gift that your mom can cherish forever, you can go for personalized ones. Apart from a photo album that you can fill with your favorite photos together, you can experiment with 3d crystal pictures and other 3d printing items. She can display these gifts in her room and serve as a reminder of how you made Thanksgiving extra special for her.
Pull together an unforgettable, meaningful tribute to your mom on Thanksgiving. The above surprise ideas will help you create new memories that she will cherish for a lifetime. The surprise does not need to be expensive because it is the effort and time that will make her smile and feel special.
