9 Mother's Day Ideas for all the fabulous moms out there.

6. Have money donated to your favorite charity. Do you really need a bunch of flowers that will die within the week? Or another piece of jewelry, or another box of chocolates or another one of that thing you get every year? Ask your family to take the money they would have spent on gifts and donate to a charity that you believe in.

7. Harness all of the love your family has for you with a love-themed evening of entertainment. Drag everyone out to a romantic comedy, like The Back-Up Plan with Jennifer Lopez and Alex O'Laughlin, or Date Night with Steve Carrell and Tina Fey. If you have more money to burn, go to see live theater. If you prefer being the center of attention on this glorious day (your kids are going to hate us for this), have a family fun karaoke night. You and your man can sing a love duet that inspires your kids to... throw up.

 

8. Get matching mother/daughter tattoos. Hopefully, this is a love that will last forever. Why not commemorate that love with a tat that will also last forever? What? Haven't you seen that episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, where Kris Jenner decides to get her youngest daughters' names tattooed on her body? So sweet! (And permanent! And liberating?) Are Women With Tattoos Sexier?

9. Take a weekend getaway. Because one Sunday doesn't provide you with nearly enough time to celebrate, you should make a weekend out of it. Take your family on a weekend cruise, spend 48 hours sprawled out somewhere tropical or leave the kids with someone else and go on a wine tour with your man. Tired of the hubby? Say sayonara to the fam and go traveling with your girlfriends.

The most important thing for your family to remember, however, is to be there. To show how much they love and appreciate you. (To be at your every beck and call.) Because—in the chaos of day-to-day life—it can be easy to lose touch with each other.

What does your husband or boyfriend do for Mother's Day? And what's the best (or worst) Mother's Day gift you've received?
