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.
