Everyone likes to treat their Mum on Mother’s Day, but it can be troubling if you’ve not got much money and you’re fretting about how to afford a nice gift. Don’t worry though, there are plenty of ways to make Mother’s Day special without spending a fortune. Read on for some thrifty and fabulous suggestions:
Help Mum relax
Nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like doing the chores no one really wants to do, and giving Mum the chance to put her feet up. Bring her breakfast in bed and then get the rubber gloves on, tackle the washing-up, get the bathroom sparkling and put your feather duster to good use. Doing this costs literally nothing but time and elbow grease (and perhaps a couple of pounds on a croissant and coffee) and shows you care much more than some last minute flowers bought at the local garage.
Spend time together
When we’re all grown up with families of our own it can sometimes be all too easy to neglect our mums, but spending time with your mum is the best way to show her you care and is something that money simply can’t buy. You don’t have to be an online psychic to know that all your mum really wants this Mother’s Day is to see you. A walk in the park, a trip to the art gallery or something more out there like an evening at a psychic tarot reading– whatever your mum is into – will her know you have time for her and enjoy her company, which is worth much more than a box of Milk Tray.
Make your own card and gifts
There’s nothing wrong with giving gifts, but something personal is a lot more touching and meaningful than a generic card or gift that could be from anybody. Are you any good at cross-stitching? Perhaps you make your own jam? Employ your best arts and crafts skills to put together a truly personalised card and gift for Mum this Mother’s Day that will mean the world but won’t cost the earth.
