5 Ways to Express Your Love to Your Mom on Mother's Day 


Mother's Day is that one special day a year where you go out of your way to make mom feel extra loved and appreciated for everything that she does for the family. Expressing love can come in different packages but taking time to observe and get to know what mom values would make a big difference in planning the perfect Mother’s Day celebration for her. Here are five ideas you and your kids can try based on what love language resonates the most with her! 


1. Words of Affirmation (Say “Thank you” and “I Love You”.) 

Let’s begin with the most straightforward yet holds a special power when delivered with utmost sincerity – words. Words of affirmation can be as simple as giving them kind words, compliments, appreciation notes, and cute messages. But you can also go big by writing her a letter, poem, or even a short story about her.  

Don't stress if you struggle with words. Authentic affirmations from the heart always carry weight, no matter how simple or clumsy they may seem. Get inspired with this video in crafting your own message for mom. 



2. Gift Giving (Give her flowers.) 

While receiving gifts is generally fun, knowing how much time and effort was put into it makes it extra special. Thus, focus on giving meaningful gifts that reflect mom’s values, personality, and your relationship with her. Remember, it's always the thought behind the gift that counts. You can even make your own gift! Try this paper flower bouquet tutorial for a personalized token of love! Be sure to choose her favorite flower or color for a special touch. 



3. Quality Time (Do an activity that she likes.) 

“Your presence is present enough.”  Your presence by her side on Mother's Day is a present enough for her. But make sure your presence is also present enough. This entails giving them your full attention and engaging in meaningful and interactive activities together. Put away distractions like cell phones and computers, engage thoughtfully, and actively listen. You must also include activities that she likes in your agenda for the day. 

It doesn't always have to involve spending money or going out; you and the kids can join her in doing her favorite activities at home. Get inspired by Sassa and her mom’s gardening! 



4. Acts of Service (Cook her favorite dish.) 

By just merely giving them an extra helping hand in doing the dishes, running errands, and cleaning the house is also an act of love. Offer to take on tasks you know you can do from her to-do list to lighten her load.  

You can also express this non-verbal love by cooking a special dish for her. For instance, Caloy, with his Lola's assistance, tried to cook his mother's favorite Tinola. This is also a great opportunity to bond with your kids while doing something special for their mother. 



5. Physical Touch (Hug her tight!) 

Physical intimacy can serve as a powerful emotional bond. Therefore, you should not underestimate the power of hugs. Hugging someone releases oxytocin, known as "the love hormone," benefiting both the giver and the receiver. In the bond between mother and child, oxytocin is vital for fostering attachment, trust, and a sense of safety, as well as promoting pair-bonding. 

So don’t forget to give mom a big power hug as you greet her this Mother’s Day. Watch how powerful this gesture is in the story of Lunining and her mother! 



Whatever love language speaks the most to mom, the most important thing is to make sure that she feels loved and appreciated not just on Mother's Day but every day. Want more engaging family content like this? Follow Knowledge Channel on YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter/X!
