A Mother/ Daughter Memory Book
This might take a little preparation but it’ll certainly be worth it. Collect together some family photos, particularly those of you and your mother, and pop them in a memory book. We ought to say here that this works equally as well for sons and mothers. See if you can find any other mementos such as ticket stubs, wrapping paper, trinkets and other significant items. Wrap the whole thing up in some fancy paper, and hey presto a very special Mother’s Day gift.
Cook Her a Meal
After all these years, time to turn the tables on your mother and cook her a meal. For years you’ve been sitting down and enjoying her tasty fare, but now it’s time to show her what you can do in the kitchen. Spoil her for the day with a yummy three-course meal. If your culinary skills aren’t up to close inspection you can always take her out to dinner instead. But see if you can book a table at a restaurant she’s been dying to visit for years.
Have Some Fun With Your Mum
Take your mum out for the day and do something she loves doing. It might just be shopping, because let’s be honest, what woman does enjoy doing that? But there are tons of other experiences you can share with your mum. Take a boat ride and enjoy afternoon tea on the water. Maybe she’d love to drive a supercar, or throw herself out of an airplane and enjoy the thrill of a parachute jump. Perhaps art or cooking classes would be more her thing. Or she might want to enjoy a sightseeing tour of her bucket list city – be creative.
The Beauty of a Living Plant
We’ve already mentioned that flowers are pretty old hat when it comes to Mother’s Day gifts, so why not give her a living plant instead? Cut flowers are not known for their long lasting quality, in fact they very quickly fade and die. Keep the memory of this Mother’s Day much longer with a plant for the garden. If she’s already got a bit of a penchant for gardening then this gift is perfect. And if she’s not a big fan of gardening this might encourage her to try again.
Make a Card and Write a Poem
Manufacturers of cards have really jumped on the bandwagon when it comes to Mother’s Day. A handmade card will be far more special for that special lady in your life. Add a poem that you’ve written, and you’re going to shine in her eyes. We appreciate that not everyone has a poem inside them just waiting to be put on paper so here’s one that you can borrow.
M is for the million things she gave me
O means only that she’s growing old
T is for the tears she shed to save me
H is for her heart of purest gold
E is for her eyes, with love-light shining
R means right, and right she’ll always be.
Put them all together, they spell
A word that means the world to me.
Howard Johnson (c. 1915)
