The month of May brings a lot of excitement – For some students it’s the end of the school year and Memorial Day means the official start of summer, for others it’s the recognition that summer break is just around the corner and BBQ season has finally arrived and for all of the mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers, it means a special day to celebrate their kind hearts and giving spirits. Mother’s Day brings with it a lot of unique opportunities to show your mother just how much you care, and we’ve got some suggestions for how to make your mom feel like a queen this year!
Mother’s Day Cookout – Winter is gone so why not take advantage of the warmer weather and host a special family cookout with the help of your natural gas grill. Consider selecting some of your mom’s favorite foods like pulled pork, ribs, grilled chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs. With the even cooking of your grill, you’ll have no trouble cooking low and slow with your pork items and cranking things up a bit when it’s time for burgers. To make the celebration even easier for mom, why not grill some veggies so the kitchen stays clean, and she can truly relax and enjoy her special day. Don’t forget to pick up one of her favorite desserts – consider stopping by your local bakery for a fruit pie, lemon bars or stick with a classic like chocolate chip cookies or ice cream.
Selfcare Sunday for Mom – Who doesn’t enjoy a little selfcare, especially when you’ve earned it, like your mom does every day! Spas can be expensive but that doesn’t mean your mom has to miss her chance to relax and rejuvenate, especially when you have a natural gas water heater that creates the perfect warmth for a nice bath. Consider setting up a special “spa like” ambience in her bathroom with fresh flowers, relaxing aromas, calming music and an assortment of face masks, nail polish, body scrubs, bath bombs and lotions. Tell mom to take a few hours for some me time while you handle any errands that need to be run or cooking for a special Mother’s Day meal.
Complete Mom’s To-Do List – Moms work hard all week and some at-home tasks can get pushed to the weekend. This Mother’s Day, why not take those chores off her hands? Consider doing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen, washing the laundry and folding clothes for the family, and maybe even doing a little meal prep. Sure, these tasks are never fun, but we’ll let you in on a little secret — Thanks to your natural gas appliances, you’ll complete your tasks much quicker than your friends with all electric appliances. The immediate nature of natural gas cooking means you’ll be ready to meal prep faster, your natural gas water heater will ensure you don’t waste any time waiting for the tap to warm before you can do the dishes and all of that efficiency will help you zoom through laundry so you can spend more time with mom!
