Moth·er's Daynoun1. A celebration honoring mothers by rekindling your childhood arts-and-crafts ideas sans glue paste messes & letting your creative streak run wild with Pinterest ideas.
For me, Mother's Day almost always requires a much-needed, bank-robbing trip to Michaels and the perennial favorite--a bundle of freshly-plucked flowers! Flashback to my elementary days and I remember carelessly strolling around my neighborhood anxiously (and unknowingly) plucking delicate stems of color-saturated peonies and chrysanthemums from my neighbors' plush evergreen lawns. And who can forget the piles of endless Mother's Day cards that are probably stressing out hypothetical Tom from 500 Days of Summer at his card-making job during Mother's Day season. (Oh, how I love that movie)
Whether you're whipping away for an award-winning concoction of your signature heart-shaped buttermilk pancakes à la strawberries or dashing glitter onto hand-made cards while accidentally decorating your face like Ke$ha, Mother's Day is really all about appreciating your one-of-a-kind mom. Being a teenager, I've occasionally gotten into typical tv show-esque quarrels with my mom. Regardless, every daughter in their lives experience glimmers of their mother's as their best friends to laugh and have spa-days with. For me, that entails a skin therapy session of random asian creams as my mom batters me for having dark under-eye circles and having unwelcome breakouts (she definitely forgets that I'm still just a teenager).
Regardless, every daughter thinks of her mom as a Supermom. So why not treat your mom like the superhuman she is and indulge her hard work with some much-deserved gifts! Hopefully this wishlist will do some justice but if not, at least it'll add a dose of bliss this Sunday!
