Mother’s day is coming up quickly, on the 8th of May. We think this day is a wonderful opportunity to show our moms how much they mean to us. They brought us into this world, nurtured us and helped us to become the people that we are today. It should be mother’s day every weekend really!
Here are 6 different things to do for your mother this year:
1.Give her a lemon tree
You could give your mother flowers, but they will be ready to go in the bin in a week. Lemon trees are great indoor plants, they survive easily, only need to be watered about once a week and best of all, they give you lemons! What a useful gift!
2. Buy her something from a thrift store
This is a fun one because it allows you to be creative and also get her something nice which doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Examples of things you can buy in thrift stores which you might consider: pretty crochet blankets, 70s teapots, a tennis racket, vintage jewelry. The sky is the limit; you never know what treasures you might discover.
3. Give her coupons to redeem at home
If your mom is a busy bee who is always on her feet, she might appreciate some coupons which she can redeem at home, like not having to wash any dishes for a week, or having someone (you) hoover the entire house, or maybe a massage, which leads us to…
4. Making a home spa
Why not offer your mom a massage, maybe paint her nails and make face masks together? Mother’s day is a perfect opportunity for some girly bonding time. You can put on a powerful women’s movie like Thelma and Louise (or maybe something more light-hearted) or just ask your mom some questions about her young years and learn something new about each other.
5. Buy her a Groupon voucher for something new and exciting
Why not treat your mom to something she wouldn’t normally get for herself, like a ride in a helicopter, or a meal in a Lebanese restaurant, or a horse-riding session? We often forget that moms are people with varied interests and not just the people who brought us into this world. Why not help them to discover some new things?
6. Play crazy golf together
Or go to an arcade, bowling or any other activity that’s silly and fun. Let your hair down and really have some girly fun-times with your ma. You won’t regret it, and you will create lasting memories together. Don’t forget to snap some pictures!
