    Take Mom To A Mother's Day Brunch

    Since this is mom's special day, don't make her cook.  You can treat her to a lovely breakfast or brunch.  The Best Western-Ramkota will be having a Mother's Day brunch.  The occasion will run from 9:30am to 1:30pm, so you will have plenty of time to get decked out in your Sunday's best and enjoy a great meal with your mom.  The brunch will feature many of your and your mom's favorite foods, so this is a great option to start out your Mother's Day.

    Take Mom To The Movies

    Everybody loves movies.  Sunday's are great days to go to the movies anyway.  There are usually plenty of matinees for nice afternoon trip to the theater.  With the abundance of movies constantly coming out, I'm sure there is one your mom is dying to see, and she would love the company.  Here in Casper we have five awesome movie theaters to choose from.  The Iris 8, The Fox 3, The America, and The Rialto Movie Palace are all conveniently located downtown.  Don't forget about Studio City on the eastside.  Get your mom some popcorn and candy to make your Mother's Day movie date an even better one.

    Make Mom a Homemade Gift

    Not many things make moms happier than a homemade gift from the heart.  It doesn't have to be anything fancy, as long as it's from you.  There are plenty of craft stores in Casper to get ideas and supplies.  Check out Hobby Lobby for any sort of craft you can think of.  Another great option is Pottery By You, where you can create and paint your own pottery.  They also do glass fusing,silver clay jewelry, and mosaics.  I can't reiterate this enough.  Mom's love homemade gifts!

    Give Mom Your Time & Appreciation

    This is probably the best gift you could give the one who has given everything for you.  Mother's Day is all about showing love and appreciation for your mom and everything she has done for you.  Most mothers will agree that they would rather have good quality time with their children over a busy activity filled schedule.  You can still go to brunch or a movie but take the time to show your love for your mom.  I'm sure the love will be returned ten-fold!
