After 2020, it feels more important than ever to celebrate what we have, and who we have in our lives - Mothers, Grandmothers, Sisters, Aunts, Daughters. It's also hard that most of us can't celebrate with our Mums this year.
Mother's Day doesn't have to be expensive, obviously you can spend on them if you like, but the thought really does count.
A few Mother's Day gift ideas:
- Video or phone call - being able to see you or their grandchildren will make their day
- Handwritten or Handmade Mother's Day card - the personal touch means a lot
- Grow a plant - she'll appreciate the forward planning and care given
- Slippers - Soft, cosy slippers will keep her toes warm and toasty
- Be creative - make something by learning to crochet, knit, cross-stitch, patchwork, sculpt, wood carving, paint, draw, etc
- Bake - no one can resist homebaked goodies
- Book - relatively inexpensive, whisk them away to another world or encourage a new interest
- Photo in a Frame - personalised and treasured for ever
If you'd rather spend money or you don't have the time:
- Hobbies - what could you buy to enhance their hobbies - extra wool, materials, patterns....
- Online class - help them learn a new hobby or skill by trying out something new online
- Golden Oldies - Wine, Chocolates, Flowers, Books, Jewellery, Skin Care
- Subscription - there are hundreds of subscription boxes to choose from - magazines, gin, chocolate, stationery, candles, make-up, crafts, baking...
- Personalised Items - Cooking spoons, cushions, frames, name plates, slogans, cards, planters, aprons, pencils/pens, notepads, bags....
- Hampers - again they come in every possible variety
Whatever you choose, make sure you let her know how much she means to you - she'll love it as long as it's been chosen with love and care.
