Mother’s Day is not far away, and it’s time to start racking your brain and trying to find that perfect present. If you’re looking for something meaningful, remember that it’s always the thought that counts. Here are some ideas to get you thinking.
If you’re a mum yourself, you probably don’t get to spend as much time as you’d like to with your own mum. This Mother’s day, why not treat your mum to a day out or an afternoon together? You could hit the shops for some retail therapy, book afternoon tea at your favourite cafe or even go to a spa for the day. Think about how your mum likes to relax and what she prefers to do in her spare time. If you really want to push the boat out, you could make a weekend of it and stay overnight in a hotel or cottage. Sometimes, time is the precious and meaningful give you can give, especially if you don’t get to see each other very often.
Jewellery is a wonderful gift idea because you can keep treasured pieces forever. Even if you don’t have the budget to stretch to diamond earrings or handmade pearl jewellery, you can choose something, which your mum will love and cherish for years to come. Think about her style and the pieces she already owns. If she’s a fan of dressing up and she likes to make a style statement, go for costume jewellery. If she favours a more modest approach, something simple like a gold bangle or a pair of elegant drop earrings could be just the ticket.
Does you mum love makeup or are they a keen amateur photographer? Does she enjoy spending time cooking up a storm in the kitchen or she is a fantastic baker? If so, why not investigate local classes? She could hone her culinary or bakery skills and learn some new recipes, develop her aptitude behind the lens or get to grips with some new makeup tips and tricks.
Most mums have framed photographs all over the house. If it’s been a while since you sent some new photos of the kids or you haven’t had a family portrait since you were little, why not organise a photoshoot or order some more recent prints and get them framed or put onto canvases for the wall?
Does your mum spend most of her time looking after her grandchildren or running around after others? If so, she deserves a bit of a treat. If you have siblings, club together and book a manicure, a soothing facial, and a haircut.
If you’re looking for inspiration for Mother’s Day, and you want a thoughtful gift that your mum will love, look no further. Treat her to a day out or a mini makeover, order some family photos, or buy a piece of jewellery that she can treasure for years to come. If she has hobbies or interests, think about booking classes or experience days.
