Perfect Mother's Day Gift Ideas
Mother’s Day is another one of those days, like Valentine’s Day and your wedding anniversary and the birthday of your spouse, which is easy to forget. Sometimes you are simply too busy to remember and sometimes you forget without any excuse. It is not because you are a bad person, it’s just hard to store all of those strange dates in your head. Sure, you can always get Pancake Day bang on, and you never forget St Patrick’s Day, but that is because they are fun days, days when you can see how many different fillings you can manage to cram into a ‘pancake’, days where you can eat copious amounts of food, days where you can end up going to bed at five in the morning full of Guinness...
OK, I have become a little sidetracked and have gone and aimed this opening gambit at too specific an audience, again. Sorry, basically, remember that the 10th March 2013 is Mother’s Day. 10th March! That gives you plenty of time to show your good ol’ mum just how much you care.
No matter what you do, you have to send her a card. She deserves it! But a card sometimes just isn’t enough. And no, sticking five pound coins to the inside of the card is not a good idea as a present. It’s a cop out. Here are some great ideas for Mother’s Day presents that you should consider this year.
Let’s get personal!
Personalised gifts are a lovely touch and a great way to express your love and appreciation for your mother. Not only will a truly personalised gift show your mum how much effort you have put into her present, but it will also end up being a truly unique gift that she will have never received before. You can get her some personalised jewellery - with an engraving, a personalised photo frame full of family pictures or even some laser etched crystals.
You could even make her something yourself. This is only wise if you have at least a small amount of creativity to utilise, otherwise it could end up a little insulting. Some poorly carved home-made clogs for example, wouldn’t exactly be well received would they? She could get splinters or sprain an ankle. If you are going to make something yourself then why not decorate a mug or sew her some lovely cushion covers? You could even knit her a scarf.
Our mums worked tirelessly to keep us safe and happy when we were younger and now that we are all grown up we are able to return the favour. There are very few better ways to show your mother some real appreciation, than by taking her for a day at the spa. Treat her to massages, beauty treatments, a swim, steam and sauna and she will have a truly wonderful Mother’s Day.
The good thing about a decent spa day is that they are a bit different from the ordinary present and you can usually book your mother in for one, for less than £100. Not bad at all really is it?
Give her an experience to remember
If you fancy offering your mother something a bit different this year then you can always offer her an experience that she will never forget. Just make sure that it is a positive experience. For example my mum will never forget the day we lost our bearings and got stuck on the M25 all day - we did it twice clockwise and once anticlockwise - but that is not the sort of memory we are trying to create.
Instead, why not treat her to a hot air balloon ride, or a day racing fast cars around a track? Or, you could tell her she is going for a nice lunch out of town and instead take her skydiving. Once put on the spot she won’t be able to refuse and trust me, she will love it! Hopefully... Or, a nice day out of some sort will suffice.
If your mum isn’t into all the fuss of Mother’s Day, and let’s face it many aren’t, then you could always give her a small traditional treat. Something that shows her how much you care and says thank you for all of her hard work. Some nice flowers or some chocolates for example, may be seen as cliched by some people, but they are the perfect way to treat your mum on Mother’s Day if she isn’t keen on fuss.
You can just write her a nice note in her card and give her some beautifully arranged flowers for her living room. Perfect.
Whatever you decide to do in order to treat your mum this year I am sure it will be greatly appreciated. Sometimes all they want is to see you on Mother’s Day and have a good old catch up. If they say this they are lying. They also want a nice Mother’s Day card.
