Celebrated on the second Sunday of May, this year’s Mother’s Day falls on May 12, 2013. This holiday tradition of paying tribute to mothers goes far back in the early 1900s. According to Census.gov, the U.S. Congress designated the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day in 1914. Since then, families have been celebrating the women in their lives that made it all possible.
So how do you express gratitude to the women who take on the role of motherhood in your life? This includes not only your own mother and wife but grandmothers, aunties, sisters, etc. The most important one is your own mother of course, but the other moms should get a small token of appreciation or at least a sweet and sincere greeting.

- Be her very own attentive chef. Spoil your mom with her favorite dishes while showing off your kitchen skills. Whip up a surprise breakfast for her or invite her to a special dinner that’s served and cooked by you! Don’t forget the flowers and the candles. She will appreciate the effort you put into cooking and serving compared to simply picking up the tab at a restaurant.
