Mother's Day Flowers

Celebrating Mom on Her Special Day

I remember when both of my kids each said “mama” for the first time. As those two little syllables blended together, my heart melted with my new, official title. As each grew older, the calls for “mama” grew in frequency, leaving me a bit weary at the end of the day after my name being on repeat.

However someday, I know that “mama” will be replaced with “mom,” and it will be said much less often. These little moments are bittersweet personified and often leave me conflicted with watching my kids grow up versus missing their younger, diapered versions.

Being a mom is a big job. One full of seemingly endless requests for mama, snacks, toys, baths, and cleaning up something sticky (yes, something is always sticky).

Each May, we celebrate all of the moms and their sticky, bittersweet adventures on Mother’s Day. In 2021, Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9.

Finding the Perfect Gift for Mother’s Day

Gifts don’t have to be purchased to make mom feel special: a bouquet of dandelions, handwritten cards, or this fun printable will make her day memorable.

But for those seeking a traditional purchased gift, Southwest Michigan has oodles of fun options. Flowers, desserts and gift baskets are just a few options in Kalamazoo. And if you’re hungry, there is no shortage of meals from local restaurants.

Time spent together is also a perfect gift for mom: we’ve rounded up some special events for Mother’s Day too.

Read on for all of the local options for Mother’s Day this year in Kalamazoo:
