    ::Sends this post to mom; tells her to pick one::

    1. Give her "coupons" for one-on-one tech lessons.

    Sans snarky comments.

    2. Make a DIY recipe dish towel of your favorite childhood dish and ask her to teach it to you.

    Spending the afternoon baking > anything else.

    3. Do a spa activity — together.

    Whether it's a simple mani-pedi or a whole day of pampering.

    4. Bond over a jigsaw puzzle.

    5. Go to a wine tasting.


    And marvel at your similar love of heavy reds.

    6. Prep materials to make a fun craft together.

    Try one of these super easy Mother's Day DIYs to start you off.

    7. Book a visit to a local museum to look at some of her favorite art.

    8. Play golf or mini golf.

    If you're a pro, great. If you're not, the worse you are, the more time you'll spend together.

    9. Take a cooking class.

    10. Load her smartphone with some of your favorite tunes.

    And have an immediate dance party.

    11. Take her out to a nice dinner.

    12. Treat her to a ~little something~ on an afternoon out.

    13. Do some gardening.

    14. Have an extended cuddle sesh slash Netflix binge.

    Heck, she can even choose the show for once.

    15. Sign up for a workout class.


    Be each other's motivation buddy.

    17. But then again, she may need some dang time to herself.

    A couple hours of "me time" and a bubble bath = totally chill presents, too.
