By Allan Britnell, Editor-in-Chief, News Canada

(NC) Mother’s Day is on the second Sunday of May every year. This year, that means it’s on Sunday, May 12. Which also means you don’t have a lot of time to pull together gifts and ideas to show her how important she is to you. Here are three ideas to get you started.

A shared interest
Your relationship with your mom can be complicated. Consider finding fresh ways to connect this Mother’s Day and then seeing where they lead you. Taking advantage of a shared interest can be a great way to create a reliable conversation starter or spend low-key time together. For example, if you’re both into history you could introduce her to a podcast like Parks Canada’s ReCollections, which brings listeners fascinating stories from national historic sites across the country. That should get you talking.
