Stuck for something to buy for that special woman in your life, who has always been there for you, picked you up and dusted you off when you were down, and showered you with her affection? Whether it’s an aunt, grandmother, mother, sister or foster mom, all women deserve some recognition on Mother’s Day, for all the hard work they put in. Hold on before you rush out and buy the usual fare of flowers and a card, and try and come up with something a little bit special. It could be something gold. Something indulgent. Something feminine. Something that she’s going to like using time and time again. Think about her hobbies and the things she likes doing, and then head out to the shops, or look online for something that will suit her tastes. How about something she’d never consider buying for herself? For example a luxurious throw, extravagant beauty products, or a tasteful trinket she can place somewhere for all to see. But don’t however, cross off a few important gifts for Mother’s Day that money can’t buy. Time spent together and expressions of love. Let’s look at a few examples…
Spend Some Time Together
The best Mother’s Day gift of all will be to spend some time in her company, preferably doing something that she’ll enjoy.

Your life is likely full to bursting with responsibilities and commitments, and it’s often those nearest and dearest that suffer. Take this opportunity to take her off somewhere nice, sit down and have a good chat, and generally have a relaxing time. Don’t forget to tell her how much you miss and care for her – these words will certainly go a long way.
Make Your Mum a Meal
You haven’t got enough fingers and toes to count the hot dinners she’s lovingly prepared for you, so this Mother’s Day give her the day off and cook for her. Imagine how bored and cheesed off she must be, with the never ending round of food preparation that is required by a family household. Shoulder this responsibility for her just for this one day, and she’ll really appreciate whatever you put in front of her and would be a really personalised Mother’s day gift. If your culinary skills really aren’t up to much then take her out for the day, and make sure she gets fed well.
Nip Round With a Duster and Vacuum
Aside from the daily food preparations, your mum has been responsible for keeping the home in order. With her regular routine of dusting, sweeping and vacuuming, she’s ensured that your home has always been as shiny as a new pin. Don’t you think she deserves a rest from all this drudgery? Send her out to relax for the day, and you get on with all the cleaning chores that need to be done. When she gets home imagine her surprise when she spots that there are no dishes in the sink, not a speck of dust anywhere, and everything is clean and tidy.
Her Own Supermum Certificate
You know you’re lucky to have one of the greatest mums in the world, but how often do you tell her? Why not give her the gift of a handmade certificate declaring just that? There are plenty of customisable options available online, or you can make your very own. Pop it in a frame, and wrap it up for a very special and unique gift.
A Family Day Out
Having a busy life means there’s little time for family celebrations, but Mother’s Day is an excellent opportunity to gather everyone together and head out for a family picnic. Would she enjoy relaxing on the banks of a river, or lazing around on the beach? Get other family members to bring along some food, and you’ve got everything sorted for a day of family fun. If you think she’s prefer to be actually doing something then there are plenty of attractions you can all visit in your local area, or further afield.
Create a Family Collage
Mums are well known for loving family photos, so gather a few together and put them in a frame. You can get other family members to add their own contributions, and it doesn’t have to be just pictures. Include some heartfelt messages, and memories of good times you’ve had together, and the collage will get pride of place in her home.
It May Be Old Hat but Flowers are a Favourite Mother’s Day Gift
Flowers have become one of the most popular gifts to give on Mother’s Day, and you’ll find plenty of florists offering the perfect bouquet. There are even florists who offer an online service, if you haven’t got the time to get to the shops. She may have a few favourite flowers, but if you need some suggestions here’s a few likely candidates:
For the most perfect gift of flowers, one that will be everlasting, bear in mind the wonderful gifts available at Eternity Rose. Hand picked blooms are made eternal by a process of dipping in precious metals. An elegant and long lasting gift that will clearly show how much you care.
Mother’s Day is Not Just For Mothers
This upcoming Mother’s Day spare a thought for all the women in your life who have influenced, cared and loved you in their own special way. Mother’s Day is not just a day for celebrating all those hard working and loving mothers, but a day for saying thank you to all the women who care. It could be your sister, aunt, mother-in-law, teacher, friend or the next door neighbour. Being a mother is more than just carrying you around for 9 months and giving birth. Motherly love can be felt without the connection of blood and close family. Take a leaf out of the book of many countries across the globe, and celebrate all things woman. Modern living leaves us with far too few times to show how much we care about the people who influence and care for us. So stand up and be counted when Mother’s Day comes around.
