Flowers and chocolates are a good ol’ fashioned favourite for almost every occasion (think Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, Anniversaries) – but what about something a bit outside of the square, something more unique… something your Mum will actually remember? We’ve put together a list of our favourites to help you celebrate with your Mum this Mother’s Day.
- Homemade cards
Another oldie but a goodie, homemade cards are super sentimental, a fun activity for Dad to do with the kids and will put a massive smile on Mum’s face.
- Start a new tradition – take a family photo
Every Mum loves a family photo, and how often do you pause to get everyone in the same spot at the same time? Why not make it a new tradition, every year rally the family and get them all in the photo (might need a refresher on how to work the self-timer on the camera) and each year your Mum will get an updated family photo to hang on the wall.
- A new family heirloom
Get your Mum something that will be treasured for generations to come – a stunning LoveLoop to commemorate the bond with her children makes the perfect gift. Personalised and adaptable for all of life’s new additions.
- Breakfast in bed
A traditional Sunday cook up or a simple bowl of muesli – your choice but don’t skimp on the trimmings to make it extra special! Orange juice and coffee is a must, with a handpicked flower in a jar of water on the side of the tray that will really makes mum’s day.
- Slave for a day
Mum runs around after you 364 days of the year (or 365 if it’s a leap year!) so why not give her a rest today… from everything! All those jobs that mum would normally do for you – cooking, washing, vacuuming – now is your time to shine!
- Scrapbook a page for your mum
Feeling crafty? Combine photos and memories of you and Mum into a beautiful scrapbook for her to treasure. You could add to it each year with new memories as another new family tradition.
