Mother’s Day is coming up soon, so why not plan something special with your mom this year? After all, spending the day with her daughter will mean more to your mom than any gift! Whether you bond over your love of pancakes or enjoy a day of relaxation, these mother-daughter dates are the perfect way to show your mom how much you love her.
1. Go to brunch
Dinner reservations are good, but brunch is even better! Find a cute café and spend a lazy morning eating pancakes and drinking coffee with your mom.
2. See a movie
Pick a movie you know your mom will love and take her on a date to the movie theater! You could also pop in one of your favorite DVDs, make some popcorn and enjoy a movie night from the comfort of your own couch.
3. Get pampered together
A day of European pampering with your mom is the ultimate way to relax while spending time together. When you book yourself for any services at European Wax Center on the phone and say the code “Her Campus” through May 31, your mom can get a matching service of her choice for free! Find your nearest European Wax Center location here and call to make a reservation!
4. Go shopping
What could be better than going on a shopping trip with your mom? Whether you peruse the local mall or spend the day browsing some cute, new shops, your mom will love getting the chance to engage in some quality girl time with you.
5. Cook together
If your mom is a culinary queen, she’ll love getting to spend the day cooking with you! Find a fun recipe to try (something chocolaty, perhaps?), turn on some music and spend an afternoon in the kitchen.
6. Take a day trip
If you want to get creative, plan a day trip to a nearby city! You could visit an art museum, try a new lunch spot, hang out at a café—the options are endless. Don’t forget to bring a camera to document the day!
7. Take a class together
If your mom has always wanted to try pottery or pastry-making, enroll the two of you in a fun day class! Not only is this a great way to bond, but you’ll also both learn something new in the process.
