24 Mother’s Day Gifts to Give and Get + Ways to Celebrate During SIP
We're heading into what might be the strangest Mother's Day ever. But no one is more deserving of a gift than moms right now. We're juggling A LOT. Give moms (sisters, girlfriends, wives) a much-needed something to show her that you love her and you get her. Here are gifts to give and receive, plus ideas for making the day not so strange and perhaps really beautiful.
Ways to Celebrate
- Start the day with a serenade a la Mexico, a three-day feast a la Ethiopia and other ways countries celebrate International Mother's Day.
- DIY matching Mama and Babe jackets and hats in 20 minutes using nothing but patches.
- Serve up Mother's Day brunch somewhere unexpected — a picnic on the front lawn, in bed with all the kids, in the car with a view of the ocean or somewhere on a remote hike with your people (just not other people;). Try our Red Velvet Heart Waffles With Cream Cheese Glaze for a treat for kids and mom.
- Try the SIP version of our favorite activities that are not Mother's Day brunch: For "walks" together try Longwalks app for connecting with mom and others you love. Each day of the week has an intentional theme that helps you journal together with photos and stories or just check ins. It's just you and your mom, and other family and friends if you wish — those who support you most —so it's totally private. It's a great way to connect about all the things!
