Too often Mother’s Day sneaks up on us and instead of gifting your mother with a well planned day we hastily throw something together, grab the last card on the shelf and give her toast with peanut butter and coffee to her for breakfast.

You an avoid that this Mother’s Day with a little advanced planning.

• Buy or Make your Mother’s Day card

• Write your mother a poem. Don’t wait until the last minute for this. You want it to sound well thought out and sincere. Not thrown together at the last minute.

• Get the signature of everyone that needs to sign the card

• If you’ll be giving her flowers make sure you have picked them out or have ordered them to be delivered.

• Choose an appropriate gift and then purchase it. If you are ordering online, make sure that you allow enough time for shipping and delivery.

• Choose a wrapping paper or pretty gift box and get your package ready for giving.

• If you are cooking a meal, make sure you get the ingredients from the grocery store so you aren’t caught without a key ingredient.

• If you are making a coupon book for mom to redeem throughout the year make sure to get it done and printed early.

• Taking mom to a movie, play or concert? Make sure you buy the tickets in advance.

• Make sure anyone you have invited to share this Mother’s Day with you has been notified of your plans and is able to attend.

• Get your camera ready and have extra batteries ready – just in case.

• Pampering mom at the salon or spa? Don’t forget to make the appointments.

• Need a babysitter for evening plans? So do your neighbors. Don’t wait until the last minute or you might just be out of luck.

• Make any reservations that need to be made. Here are a few reminders:

o Restaurant – if you will be eating out
o Airplane – if you will be traveling
o Hotel – if you need one while traveling
o Car – again, if it is needed.

The important thing to remember is to plan, plan, plan ahead. Put reminders on your calendar, your cell phone or anything that will trigger your mind to remember that you have some important planning to do. Make this Mother’s Day the best planned, least stressful one every and be sure to do it again next year.

Great list and tips! My mom probably wishes she had you as a son/daughter. Next time around I think I'm gonna do a bit more for my mom.
