New Ways to Celebrate Mom

Chocolates, bouquets and brunches are nice... but perhaps mom might enjoy a break from the norm.

At Sprout, we are always searching for fresh ideas. This year, we've pulled together a short list of ways to celebrate mom in a less predictable way. Our ideas put a spin on common Mother's Day gifts, elevating your celebration to something more healthy, heartfelt and unique.


Less Predictable


Dinner for a Week

Free mom from mealtime mayhem. Fill the fridge or freezer with a week's worth of healthy dinners.


Flower Garden

Plant perennials outside the window mom often stands in front of. Or plant her favorite herbs in a pot or window box.


Guilt-Free Nap

More decadent than chocolate and a more effective pick-me-up, a long nap is what mom craves most.



Skip the diamonds and give generously to a charity that helps moms in need (with business loans, education, food or healthcare).


Paper Hearts

Cut out 100 paper hearts. Write one thing you love about mom on each heart. For more impact, use heart-shaped sticky notes and post them in surprise places all around the house.
