As a mom, I never knew how much I would rely on my mom friends for support and friendship. This is why I thought of spending Mother’s Day with Friends!

My mom friends deserve a wonderful day to hang out and spend time together. After all, they’re always there for me, whether I need someone to help bring treats for a play date or just to hear me vent about a tough day.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I knew I wanted to do something special to celebrate my mom friends this year.

So here are five ways to show your beautiful mom friends a little extra love this Mother’s Day.

5 Ideads for an Amazing Mother’s Day with Friends

1. Support New Moms

The first few months of navigating mom life with a newborn are hard. You are constantly learning on the go, and things get a little crazy around the home.

During the pandemic, it was tough for first-time moms who might not have the physical support they normally have.

Let your new mom friends know that they’re not alone by offering to help out a little bit or by throwing them a virtual welcome home party.

You could even drop off some groceries or make a home-cooked meal to show you care!

Here in Seattle, we have PEPS, and they are always looking for volunteers to lead virtual new mom groups.

And you can always donate items for babies and new moms at many local non-profits.

2. Go Out for a Moms-Only Lunch

As a busy mom, finding time away from the kids can be hard!

Depending on where you live and the weather in May, try organizing an outdoor lunch date.

Take this time to catch up, enjoy a cocktail, or just have fun with your girlfriends. Deep within, you know that every wonderful mother deserves a little day out.

This has been such a lifesaver that we’ve actually done them in the rain with umbrellas! What a memorable way to celebrate motherhood!

You can also do this over Zoom.

Find a quiet spot in your house where the kids won’t interrupt. Grab your favorite beverage and something to snack on.

Because Zoom can get frustrating, I find that it’s best to have people take turns. That eliminates many tech issues when people try to talk at the same time.

We like to share our highs and lows and give life updates. Spending some downtime with friends would make a wonderful Mother’s Day for every mother.

3. Give a Gift That Keeps on Giving

If you are looking for the perfect gift for that special mom this year, why not do something they’ll enjoy for weeks or days to come?

Offer them car detailing and washing, a maid to clean their home, or a week of meals prepped for their freezer. You can make a mother happy on this special day in a million ways.

These are simple “gifts,” especially if they are chores that they often do at home and want to take a break from. Or some tasks they usually set aside because there are more important things to do.

A mother knows how valuable every saved time is, so best to give them that time even just for a day. Plus, it’s a gift that you can give even if it’s not Mother’s Day.

4. Offer to Babysit 

Most moms are urged to get some time away from the kiddos.

So, why not give the gift of babysitting, which they can redeem later this year when they feel comfortable?

Whether they need some time to head on a kid-free walk or any break from the kids, offering to babysit is like a blessing to a mom!

Offer the chance to have your child and their child have a playdate at your place or to babysit for their next date night.

5. Offer Encouragement and Support

Sometimes, the best thing you can offer your mom friend is some encouragement.

Celebrate Mother's Day with friends by telling your mom friends how much you appreciate them with a card. Image of a woman holding a Mother's Day card and daffodil flowers.

Remind her that she is a great mom even if her kids are eating snack packs of pudding instead of organic fruit for a snack.

Remind her that she has a friend in her corner whenever she needs you and that you will always be there for her.

Sometimes, these small words can do so much for our mom’s friends and are the best way to show you care.
