Incidentally, May is also military appreciation month - this is the perfect time to celebrate mom who not only takes care of her family but serves her country.

Make something yourself.

Gifts which are made by you or your children for mom will always touch her heart in a special way. Personalized gifts are an even more special way to show mom you thought of her on her day. Perhaps you can get the kids to put their footprints or hand prints together in a special photo frame for mom. There are countless ways to make special projects for your mother.

Find out what mom likes to do to relax.

This year, maybe you can take mom to Fairchild Gardens, Viscaya, or even the Fruit and Spice Park. Each of these locations always have unique events taking place on Mother's Day. Look those up today to get the schedule of events for Sunday, May 11, 2014.

These locations are also great for taking family portraits - something mom will surely appreciate!

Take your mother out to dinner or cocktails.

Maybe your mother has been wanting to catch up with you after a busy few months. Take her out to dinner at her favorite place. Tip: You can take the night before or after Mother's Day to avoid the craze of families heading out to celebrate the holiday.
