  1. Plant Trees: If you have the yard space, plant a tree in your mom’s memory. Trees are beneficial to the environment.
  2. Plant Your Mom’s Favorite Flower: What was your mom’s favorite flower? Plant flowers near your house as a remembrance. Or put her favorite flower on her gravesite. If you do not remember her favorite flower, plant a rose, peony, or other types of flowers that come back yearly. When you continue to plant flowers in her memory, you will eventually have a colorful garden to remind you of her.
  3. Send Bouquets: Send your mom’s favorite flowers to another mom in your life.

Ask the delivery to go to someone who may not otherwise get any mail or gifts.
  4. Get Cooking or Baking: Did your mom have a favorite family meal or dessert that she just loved to make on a special occasion? Dig out the old family recipe for a special Mother’s Day treat to honor your mom. If you do not have a recipe, look up her favorite on Pinterest.

  6. Donate: Did your mom have a favorite charity? If you do not know, donate money in her name to a local food bank, pet rescue, church, or other reputable organization.
  7. Make a Scrapbook: Do you have photos of your mom stored in boxes? Get crafty. Create a scrapbook to honor her. Or print out photos to hang on your wall.

Not having your mom around on Mother’s Day is difficult. But, you still can honor her memory each year.
