A Mother’s Day Date Idea

If you and your significant other want to be sentimental, you can make a day out of crafting for your moms. For projects to do on this weekend date idea, Pinterest has tons of boards filled with homemade cards, DIY picture frames, and more. You could put together a scrapbook of your favorite photos and write about why each memory is so important to you. Remember that your man made need a little help in the arts and crafts department. Be patient with him as he puts his artistic skills to the test!

Once you figure out what you both want to create, take a trip to Michaels or a similar store and gather the materials that you need. Head home and get busy! For even more inspiration, consider this dating advice: Pop in a movie about mothers — something like Because I Said So or Steel Magnolias. Make sure you have some snacks on hand too! You won’t realize how quickly time passes when you’re having fun with your cutie.

When you’re finished crafting, it’s time to write a handwritten note for your mom. Tell her what it means to you to have a mother like her and how she’s helped shape you into who you are. You can find quotes or poems to use on sites like One quote that is commonly used on Mother’s Day cards is: “Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while but their hearts forever.”

If you’re feeling particularly excited for the holiday, write a card for your partner’s mom too. Talk about how well they did raising your sweetheart and what it means to have someone like them in your life. You can even slip in a spa gift card as a sweet surprise!

For the big day, make reservations for brunch or lunch at a nearby restaurant for you, your beau, and both of your moms. That way, you can spend the day together celebrating the women who mean so much to you! Or, if you’re gifted in the kitchen, cook something special for the four of you. Find out the favorite dish of each mom and incorporate it into a delicious spread. You can also include a favorite item from your childhoods.

Happy Mother’s Day!
