Make ‘Mother’s Day’ special for your mom
From a compassionate teacher to a mind-reader, a mother can fit into any role for her children. Her unconditional support and unending love for them cannot be described in words. Similarly, the feeling in children’s mind for their mother is a testimony of the love she has bestowed upon them.chandigarh Updated: May 09, 2015 09:14 IST
From a compassionate teacher to a mind-reader, a mother can fit into any role for her children. Her unconditional support and unending love for them cannot be described in words. Similarly, the feeling in children’s mind for their mother is a testimony of the love she has bestowed upon them.
With Mother’s Day this Sunday, it’s time to pamper her with something special. Nobody can suggest a better gift for your mother than you yourself. Though it might sound clichéd, it’s all up to you to make her day special.
Here we bring to you some quick Mother’s Day gifts and ideas that will be a hit.
With the advent of technology, the utility of cards has declined. Hence, avoid being tech-savvy and express gratitude by gifting her card. She might lose the last message you texted, but she would treasure the card.
Any lady would love to accept flowers. It’s never a ‘no’ for it. Pick her favourite flowers and gift it to her in the form of a bouquet. Though the prices of flowers tend to rise during such occasions, a single flower would be sufficed to get a smile on her face.
Nothing like a surprise spa session. Be it a working mother or house-wife, she would simply love to be a part of it and rejuvenate herself.
A DAY OUT
After a hectic working schedule or too much of work at home, surprise your mother by taking her out for a surprise family lunch/dinner date, as apart from being Mother’s Day, it’s a Sunday. A picnic session, new movie or a long drive to a nearby hill station are some other alternatives.
That’s what we call ladies love. Take her shopping and help her buy the latest fashion wear by giving her fashion tips. Besides, help her to find her favourite make-up brand or fashion accessories as not many mothers get time from the daily chores to look for something for themselves.
It’s not a time for a random black forest or butterscotch flavoured cakes. Surprise her with edible photo cakes like image of a family photo, her childhood image or her favourite character from a daily soap.
Though it’s not a new trend, quotation or printed mugs can be a preference if you are pressed with time.
A MEAL TO RELISH
Try waking up early and preparing a delicious meal for your mom. It doesn’t need to do something new. She would love anything that you cook for her. Still, don’t forget to clean the kitchen later as moms hate untidy kitchen.
A perennial Mother’s Day favourite. No mother can resist a relaxing day in bed. Start her day on a happy note by preparing a healthy and yummy breakfast. For a change, ‘you’ do the pampering!
GIFT HER CANDLES
Candles can never go wrong. If your mom likes decorative candles, gift her some nice colourful candles or perhaps even plain white candles that she could light up her room with. You could even arrange a candle-light dinner for your mom. Cook her favourite dishes and light a nice candle. Lay the table yourself.
Make sure your mum never has a bad day by gifting her love jar. Jazz a glass jar with glitter and slip tiny notes in it about how special she is or about some funny incidents. Ask her to read a note whenever she is in a bad mood.
If your mother loves to read, you can make a scented bookmark for her. Cut felt fabric in a cute pattern and add a few drops of essential oil on it. Glue it to a paper clip and your easy bookmark is ready!
If you are celebrating Mother’s Day for the first time, then it’s the right moment to try something different and add some spice to life.
