For a lot of people, buying gifts for Mother’s Day can be tricky, because we know that a lot of mums bring out the same old line ‘I’m happy with anything’ even if we know that don’t mean a word of it! Why not try out one of these three heartfelt ways to celebrate mum on Mother’s Day?
1. Thoughtful Gifts
We know that lots of people’s wallets will stuff be suffering from Christmas, and Mother’s Day is a perfect holiday where you can substitute expensive gifts for more budget friendly, thoughtful ones to great effect. Something that always goes down a treat is if you take the time to sort through that cupboard of old family photos and create a framed collage that mum can put up somewhere in the house. Mother’s Day is a time for reflection and thanks, and what better way to do that than remind your family of the golden years?
2. Plant a Garden
There are lot of mothers out there who take plenty of pride in their home gardens, so a fun gift idea that you can do is to present mum a certificate pledging an entire weekend of your service to buying, arranging and planting lots of lovely plants and flowers for the family garden. Of course, a good mow of the lawn is always necessary, and you will probably want to go about doing a spot of deadheading too! This is a particularly great gift to give if your mother is on the elderly side and can no longer give as much effort and attention to her garden as she used to.
3. Scenic Walk
If you have a mum who still likes to be up and active, then a fun thing to do as a family on Mothering Sunday is plan a beautiful scenic walk through a local beauty spot. For extra credit, you can prepare a wonderful picnic for everybody to share at an appropriate point throughout the day. It’s lovely to be out in nature, and what better way to celebrate your own mother than to spend the day basking in the glory that Mother Nature herself has provided us!?
