Moms deserve to be celebrated year-round, but Mother’s Day is that one special day to really shower them with extra love. Treat the moms in your life to something they really want. Here’s a hint: It’s the simple things that bring her joy and happiness on Mother’s Day!

Make a DIY Floral Arrangement

Arranging your own bouquet of beautiful stems and greenery makes it personal, and that is exactly what moms want! Show your mom how well you know her by carefully selecting her favorites. Whether it’s the yellow long-stemmed roses or maybe she is a fan of simple mums and daisies; she will love the effort you spent creating a special arrangement just for her. You can find a variety of styles and colors in our produce department.

Check out our simple guide to creating your own floral arrangements here.

Treat Her to Something Sweet

If your mom has a sweet tooth, you know the Publix bakery should be your first stop. She spends all her time treating you, so make the effort to treat her to something sweet. Pick up a few chocolate-covered strawberries or a fruit tart. You also can’t go wrong with a classic mini cake with buttercream icing or a box of our famous chocolate chip cookies. After all, calories don’t count on her special day.

Share the Love

Wouldn’t it be nice for your mom to have something sentimental to cherish and hold on to? Write her a thoughtful note about how much you appreciate her, share some of your favorite memories or just simply tell her you love that she’s your mom. Include the little ones by having them draw her a sweet picture. There’s nothing better than words from the heart, so take the time to add a personal touch to your gift.

Cook Her Favorite Meal

Food is a true love language, and a night in with the family is what mom really wants. Skip the long lines at the restaurant and treat her to a home-cooked meal. Let mom kick up her feet and relax, and don’t let her lift a finger as the dad and kids take over the kitchen. Cook her a homemade breakfast in bed or a fancy meal for dinner. Our Aprons team has hundreds of recipes to choose from with different levels of difficulty, so get the kids involved!

Check out our Aprons classes and plan to treat mom to a Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed or send her to a Mother’s Day Brunch at one of our locations. We have Big Chef and Little Chef: Breakfast in Bed classes to get the little ones involved and a demonstration-style class for mom to enjoy a nice meal prepared by our Aprons chefs on Mother’s Day.
