Mother’s Day is a special day to celebrate the amazing women in our lives who have raised us, supported us, and loved us unconditionally. But if you’re one of those people who has left planning until the last minute, don’t worry! There are still plenty of ways to make your mom feel loved and appreciated on Mother’s Day. Ultimately that is what Mother’s Day is all about. Now go ahead and enjoy these last-minute Mother’s Day ideas, remember to take lots of pictures, and cherish the time you spend with her.
1. Dine locally: Book a Mother’s Day brunch or enjoy some of the amazing restaurants located South of Atlanta including one of our favorite restaurants, Break N Bread Soul Food. Everything on their menu is delicious and affordable.
2. U-Pick strawberries: Mother’s Day falls right in the middle of strawberry season. Head to Southern Belle Farms to pick the sweetest, juiciest strawberries. While there grab a strawberry slushie or strawberry ice cream.
3. Plan a virtual celebration: If you can’t be together in person, plan a virtual celebration with your mom. You can have a video call, play games, and even watch a movie or TV show together.
4. Shop locally: Pickup a last-minute gift or gift card from a locally owned store and not have to worry about spending more for overnight shipping or the gift not arriving in time. Suggestions include: A paint kit from Party-By-Design, a bouquet of flowers, or a box of chocolates.
5. Take her on a scenic drive: If your mom loves the outdoors, take her on a scenic drive to a nearby park or nature reserve. You can enjoy the scenery together and have a picnic in the fresh air.
6. Have a movie marathon: Spend the day watching your mom’s favorite movies or TV shows together. Make some popcorn, grab some snacks, and settle in for a cozy day at home.
7. Georgia Renaissance Festival: If mom likes pirate culture, take her to the Georgia Renaissance Festival on Mother’s Day weekend. May 13-14, 2023 welcomes guests for Pirate Invasion Weekend!
