DO. has compiled a fun list of gift ideas for Mother’s Day! Think outside of the box this year and be as thoughtful as possible to show Mom how much she means to you. Shoutout to all the badass moms out there not just for Mother’s Day but all year round.

Treat her to a Longwood Gardens tour.

Maybe even splurge and get her a membership!


Get some one-on-one time and go on a gorgeous hike.

Mix it up and head downtown for a walk through the urban oasis of Lancaster city, York or Harrisburg or go on a hike through the forests of Central PA.


Save money and schedule a picnic lunch together.

Gather some quick ingredients from Lemon Street Market or Central Market for a delicious handmade picnic lunch.


Thrift an entire outfit.

Head to thrift stores like Shining Light Thrift Shop in Harrisburg, Redeux Marketplace in York, or Twice Found in Lancaster to put together an entire gorgeous, one-of-a-kind outfit with mom!


Breakfast in bed.

Brighten her morning by giving mom a delicious breakfast to start her day off right.


Home movie night.

Gather a movie basket with popcorn, red wine and some chocolate for an at-home movie night! A rom-com is never a bad choice.


Make a Spotify playlist.

Make a playlist specifically for her to enjoy on her commutes to let her know you’re thinking of her when you hear those songs. Go old school and even make a mixtape (or cd) that she’ll have forever.


Get crafty.

Go to your local craft store and gather some supplies to create scrapbooks that she can hold onto forever. Throw on some her favorite throwback songs, pop open a bottle of bubbly and get crafting!

If you’re questioning what to do for mom, refer to our list to make her day ultra special without breaking the bank. Cue the waterworks and/or I Love My Momma by Snoop Dogg.
