Make the Most of Mother’s Day 2021

Moms really deserve more than one day out of the year to be celebrated, right?? Mom was the original blow and bandage master surgeon, the hand extended seatbelt safety officer, and the chef de cuisine of packed lunches. We’ve put together a few fantastic ways for you to pamper mom for being the very best!

Endless Mom-mosas

Get outside and enjoy the sun with a summer staple ­– the mimosa! Make it mom’s by tailoring it to her taste. A twist of lemon or a dash of orange bitters adds new excitement to a heatwave fave. Head to the beach, the lake, or just lounge away in the backyard and enjoy cool cocktails mixed just for mom!

Market Days

This is ALWAYS fun! Spend the morning and afternoon hunting down local farmers’ markets, antique malls, outdoor flea markets, and pop-up shops. You never know what kind of treasures you’ll find! Help her shop for jewelry, clothes, and anything else you might come across during your adventure.

Bake on a Grill

That’s right! You can bake on a grill! Go one step above cookies from the kitchen and bake a cake out back for mama. From cobblers to skillet pies, you can be as creative as you’d like as you break the baking rules and make a fun day out of sweets and treats (cue the mom-mosas)!


Go Glamping

Add some glam to your next camping trip with mom! This will take a little extra planning, but it is so worth it. Pack extra bedding: we’re talking some kind of base, mattress, your coziest covers, anything that screams comfort. Simple touches like a small plant or side table with photos from home make it extra personal. Bring nice cookware and make a campfire gourmet meal. Decorate the glampsite with LED lights and fun stations (drinks, snacks, music, etc.), and don’t forget your Bug Bite Thing for day and night bug bite relief!


These are just a few of many ways that you can show mom how much you appreciate her. Let us know your favorite way to spend Mom Day! Show off and share your Mother’s Day moments by tagging us @bugbitething in your photos on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and Twitter.
