Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show your mum how much you value her presence in your life and everything she has done for you over the years. Flowers and chocolate are lovely, but if you want to do something a little different this Mother’s Day, it might be time to start thinking outside the box. A great way to do this is to think about the things your mother wouldn’t necessarily buy or do for herself.
If you’re on a tight budget or if you fancy setting your creative talents to work, a handmade gift is always appreciated. You don’t have to spend a great deal of money on a shop-bought present to make Mother’s Day special. You can take some pieces of coloured card and make ‘Mum Tokens’ that can be ‘cashed in’ at any time. Try making tokens for a walk in the park together, a picnic together, a back rub, or a meal of her choice that you can make. Another great gift idea is to press some of her favourite flowers on a piece of card and frame them. You could also create a collage from photographs of you and your mother, and have this framed inexpensively. Focus on the special memories you have together and draw inspiration from them when creating a unique, handmade gift.
Mothers work so hard to make the lives of their partners and children brighter, so why not show your appreciation with a pampering gift? If you’ve got a reasonable budget, you could book her in for a spa day or weekend. She may even want to take you along with her. If you’re strapped for cash, buying her a professional massage, a manicure or pedicure will be well-received. Mums sometimes forget to spend time on themselves, and this Mother’s Day can be an opportunity for you to make sure that she has some much-needed ‘me time’.
For those who don’t mind spending a bit more, there are plenty of stylish options when it comes to Mother’s Day gifts. Whatever her style, choose high quality jewellery for a winning present that she will treasure forever. Look at the jewellery she already owns and stick with that style. A contemporary gemstone jeweller like Zayah should provide you with some inspiration. Think about a necklace or pair of earrings that includes her birthstone, or a bracelet that has her name engraved into it. Make sure you choose high quality materials like silver, gold, titanium and platinum for long-lasting pieces that she can wear for years to come.
