    How to Celebrate Your Mama! For Mother's Day

    1. Take candid photos of Mom with the kids.

    Moms usually end up behind the camera, capturing every moment of their children's lives. But this Mother's Day, and beyond turn the tables and take candid photos of mom with the kids. We're not talking about the ones you know she's going to delete. Try snapping a photo during a reading session, playing at the park, or simply while holding hands on the sidewalk. These photos will be a great reminder for her to see that she was there too, and it will be something she and the kids can look back on for years to come.

    2. Create a memorable CandyGram.

    Surprise mom with a personalized CandyGram filled with all of her favourite candy flavours. Choose her favourite colours, or even create a blend based on a recent vacation or special memory. Then, tell her why you chose those candies. It's a thoughtful gift that is sure to satisfy her sweet tooth.

    3. Create quality time!

    While it's important to ask Mom what she wants to do on Mother's Day, it's even more special to plan something that she will enjoy and doesn't have to do all of the heavy lifting. Plan an activity or outing that she has been wanting to do, or simply take her out to her favourite ice cream shop. Spending quality time with her is the best gift you can give.

    4. Have the kids make something for Mom!

    Get the kids involved in Mother's Day by having them create something special for Mom. Whether it's a handmade card or a craft project, she will love the effort that they put into making something just for her. And, even better if she doesn't have to clean up the kitchen or the crafting session after them!

    5. Create a Candy Platter for the following week!

    Finally, what better way to celebrate your Mama than with a candy platter from The Sugar Cube? A candy platter is the perfect way to display something beautiful and edible! We suggest ordering this for the day or two after Mother's Day. That way, she ha the whole week and beyond to dive into a very thoughtful gift.
