4 Tips for Making Mother's Day Extra Sweet
Make a Classic Sunday Breakfast
Nowadays, it's easy to get carried away with making extravagant meals for Mother's Day, but sometimes a classic breakfast is all you need. In an effort to show your appreciation for mom for all those Saturday mornings she spent making you Mickey Mouse pancakes, why not return the favor this year? Indulge together in a class pancake breakfast complete with ooey-gooey maple syrup and all the fixins on the side. This will be one breakfast she will remember for years to come!
Create A Sweet Treat Gift Basket
Is your mom a total sweetheart that has always gone above and beyond for you? Show her just how sweet she is with a gift basket that is packed with an array of sweet treats. Fill it with her favorite candy surrounded by sentimental items like photographs and more. If your mom loves maple syrup, we have just the thing for you! We have a huge selection of maple syrup products to add to your gift basket, ranging from maple hard candy and maple caramel corn to maple cream and more. If you'd prefer to have us make one for you, we can create a custom gift basket by choosing your favorite (or your mom's favorite) products!
Make DIY Skincare Products for Mom
Does your mom love lotions, body washes, body scrubs, and the like? Forget having to spend a ton on skincare products for your mom at the store when you can make her some using a few simple ingredients and a few mason jars. Check it out!
In a bowl, combine one part coconut oil, one part brown sugar, and about a tablespoon of maple syrup per cup to create a rejuvenating body scrub your mom can use on her face and body.
Make it spicy by adding a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Sweetbread and Maple Butter
If you will be getting together with mom for brunch or afternoon tea, make something sweet to nibble on while you visit. Make a simple sweetbread such as banana bread, pumpkin bread, cranberry bread, or zucchini bread and maple butter to spread on top. Making maple butter is quick, easy, and tastes delicious! Serve with an array of fruits and berries.
