Sunday, May 12 is Mother’s Day. Do you know how you are going to celebrate with your mom? While making her breakfast in bed or going out for a nice brunch is usually one of the most popular ways to celebrate Mother’s Day, why not try something a little more personal and extra special this year?

Who says you have to go with traditional gifts for Mother’s Day this year? Check out these 8 fun and creative ways to celebrate Mother’s Day with your mom.

1. Take a Class Together

Moms are all about spending time together with their kids so why not take a class together? Whether it is a dance class or a cooking class or even a book club, your mom will love the chance to learn something new and have fun with you.

2. Go on a Special Trip Together

If you have the extra time and money, plan a special Mother & Child trip for Mother’s Day weekend. If you both have a place you always wanted to visit like a new city or the setting of a book series you both read voraciously, this is the time to do it together. Or you can always just ask mom, subtly of course, what places she has always wanted to visit, but never had the chance to. Think how much she will appreciate all the thought that went into planning this trip, and of course, she will never to say no to having your undivided attention all weekend.

3. Plan a Special Portrait Session

What mom doesn’t love family photos? If your mom has been begging for a new family portrait, why not plan a special portrait session for the whole family? Afterwards you can all take mom out for something to eat and more bonding time.

4. Volunteer Together

Has your mom always taught you how important it is to give back to your community and help others who have less than you? Why not share your love of volunteer work by planning on volunteering at a soup kitchen or shelter on Mother’s Day? The day will have extra meaning because not only are you doing something together, but you are making a difference in the world. Your mom will be so proud.

5. Help Her Work in Her Garden

Does you mom enjoy puttering in her garden and has always wanted you to find your own green thumb? Decide together on something special to plant and come over on Mother’s Day to do the planting together. Especially if your mother is getting older and can’t do all the work of taking care of her garden like she used to, she will appreciate you coming over to help. And the best part is that every time you are in the garden afterwards you will have a beautiful reminder of the special bond you share with your mom.

6. Take Your Mom to a Show

Give mom a fun reason to get dressed up and have a fun afternoon or night on the town. Splurge on a Broadway show or get tickets for her favorite production at your local community theater. It really doesn’t matter to her. She will just love sharing her passion for the theater with you. Go to lunch beforehand or dinner afterwards at a cool new restaurant and make a full day of it.

7. Go for a Nature Walk or Hike

Hopefully the weather will be nice and warm and sunny on Mother’s Day so all you nature lovers can take advantage of the outdoors. Invite mom out for a nature walk or hike depending on what she will enjoy and just soak in the beauty of the natural world in companionable silence. Showing your love for her doesn’t have to have a lot of bells and whistles. Spending time together doing something you both enjoy is more than enough.

8. Indulge Your Mutual Love of Cheesesteaks

Do you and your mom enjoy a delicious Philly cheesesteak as a treat now and again? Tony Luke’s is the quintessential South Philly cheesesteak and is the perfect lunch or dinner treat for mom on Mother’s Day. If you live near a Tony Luke’s location then take mom out for an authentic Philly meal.

If unfortunately you don’t live near one, don’t worry. Tony Luke’s also offers online ordering of their cheesesteaks so you can enjoy them at home or even better yet prepare them at home and then pack them up for a special picnic with mom.

Tony Luke’s frozen cheesesteaks, which are one of the best online food gifts available, still have the same great taste you get in their shops. They have spent a lot of research and development time to perfect its new technology that allows them to prepare the cheesesteaks fresh before freezing.

This cutting edge technology allows you to bake them at home, but still get the same taste as it you were sitting inside their South Philly shop. All you have to do is bake them in the oven for 20 minutes in order to experience the same great sandwich they would get inside Tony Luke’s South Philly shop.

Tony Luke’s only uses 100% Rib Eye for the steaks and they only buy beef that has no fillers, antibiotics or steroids. The bread is also genuine Philly bread, hand spun and baked in Philadelphia, making Tony Luke’s cheesesteaks one of the top unique food and Philly-themed gifts to send.
