1. Take a Family Outing
After the initial childhood years, it becomes really difficult to keep up with how fast you drift apart from both your parents. For your mother, it is an especially painful ordeal. Plan a perfect family outing to some special or new place, where she will get to spend some quality time with her family, and you will get to bond with her better as she will be in one of her best moods!
2. Cook her Favorite Meal
At any regular home, your mother must be the one who does most of the cooking. As easy and effortless she may make it appear, on a routine, it can become very tedious at times. So take the reins of the kitchen for the length of this day, (or often, if you too are passionate about cooking) and cook for her. Make her a delicious and sumptuous, multi-course meal with all her favorite dishes! It will make her happier than fireworks in your yard.
3. Make it a Movie Night
Movie nights of eating out of heaped tubs of popcorn and sipping cool sodas are pure magic in a cold urban world, where you get to tune out the outside world and enter the romanticized world envisioned by creative directors. Choose a good movie and you will definitely enjoy this movie date with your mother more than any romantic date you may have experienced. Your mother may not be a big fan of movies, but you should definitely try this one out. She will see the thought and effort you put behind the idea.
