5 Tips for a Memorable Mother’s Day

Our mums give us so much of their time, energy and love that it can be hard to pay back all of the sacrifices they have made for us. Mother’s Day is the one day of the year where we can say ‘thank you.’

It can be a challenge to know what to do or buy for our mums each year, to the point where we just play it safe with our choices. Why not make the day extra special this year, by throwing in a few surprises that she’ll absolutely love? If you’re stuck for ideas, here are just a few that are bound to make her day memorable:

Send a thoughtful card in the post


If you don’t get to see your mum very often or won’t be seeing her on Mother’s Day this year, why not send her a pretty card in the post? Opting for handmade or custom cards over those which are shop-bought shows that you’ve put in time and effort to create something that is personalised to her. If you haven’t got time to create a card from scratch, there are downloadable custom cards online which can be printed off and customised to your own taste.

Plan a mother and daughter date

Regardless of whether it’s actually on the actual date, or in the next few weeks or months, spending a quality day with your mum is something money can’t buy. Life gets so busy, that it can be hard to spend dedicated time together; especially if you live in different towns or cities. Although it’s always nice to send a text or have a phone call every now and again, there’s nothing quite like having a fun-filled day as part of your mother and daughter bonding time.

 

Make a donation to a charity she cares about

Your mum may not be someone who’s a huge fan of receiving gifts, therefore, why not surprise her by donating cash to a charity that she holds close to her heart, or believe she would support? Giving back is a lesson that many of our mothers have taught us growing up and this act of kindness is a meaningful act that she will no doubt, be touched by.

 

Cook her dinner

There’s nothing quite like a delicious homemade meal to show you, mum, that you love her! Whether it’s a catch-up dinner for just the two of you, or a larger gathering with your siblings or extended family, having a good old natter over food brings everyone together and creates another memory to cherish. If you’re not much of an expert in the kitchen, there are plenty of online recipes to browse through, to create a meal that she won’t forget, for the right reasons!

Text her with ‘I love you.’

 

This is the simplest, quickest, but the most special thing you can do to show your mum that you care. Many of us don’t take enough time to tell our mums those three simple words, but taking the time to do so as soon as you wake up or at the end of the day when you have a few moments to yourself is bound to put a smile on her face.

How To Make Every Room In Your House More Comfortable

Comfort and luxury are what everyone wants to come home to ideally, isn’t it? So what we are going to do here is look at ways in which to make each room in your house more comfortable to be in and also to relax in.

Living Room

 

The living room, or family room, is easily the most sociable room in any family home and as such is the logical and perfect place to begin. So what is the most comfortable item of furniture in the living room? Well, it’s obviously the couch or sofa, but is it as comfortable as it should be? You should have a warm and inviting couch for family and visitors alike. You could opt for getting a brand new sofa, lush and inviting, such as the reclining sofa I’ve always dreamed of, giving a new and comfortable focal point in the living room. If this is out of your budget at the moment, and let’s face it with the cost of a new sofa it really is for so many of us, then maybe look at some throws or cushions, you can get some really comfy pillow cushions to create a great luxury experience.

 

Bedroom

 

After the living room, the bedroom is one area that you next associate with comfort and luxury as you sleep there you might spend a third of your life in there! So it goes without saying that comfort is a must for such an important area and with that in mind the logical place to look at is the bed. For one, it’s important to pick a good sturdy bed frame but also, in addition, make sure you have the correct mattress to go with it and I highly recommend a memory foam mattress like this one which is great for comfort and avoiding back pain.

Kitchen

 

It may not seem as obvious as the living room or the bedroom but most families spend a fair amount of time in the kitchen, especially if you have the dining table in there, this is the focal point of the family mealtime which is so important these days when time together is stretched and pressured due to activities, work and day to day life getting in the way so often. It’s important to make the kitchen comfortable and inviting and this can easily be done using a mixture of nice vibrant decorating style and comfortable chairs and stools. This will give the family dining experience a great setting to ensure it’s a pleasure and not a chore.

Bathroom

 

At the very end of a long, long day where do we end up for our final bit of relaxation? In the bathroom, taking a good, hard-earned soak in the bathtub. If you use a mixture of decorating, bath essentials and set the mood correctly with candles and scents then you’ll end up with the perfect setting for an easy end to the day.
