Your mum raised you to be resourceful and think quick on your feet, so we’re sure she won’t mind you putting these skills into action. If you happen to be caught off guard this year, don’t fear! Read on for our Mother’s Day ideas to help pull together a heartfelt and meaningful tribute to Mum in mere minutes… she’ll be none the wiser.
1 – Do It Yourself
Let’s face it. The one thing your mum would probably enjoy the most is if you did those odd jobs yourself. With our unusual gift ideas category, you’ll easily be able to fix that broken tap or put up a shelf. Not only will this please your mum, but you will also get that ‘I did it’ satisfaction that only comes with DIY.
2 – Breakfast in Bed
Now, this may seem like an obvious one, but this gift only works if you tidy up after yourself as well! The breakfast itself simply needs to be made with love – even a bowl of cereal tastes better when it is made with love. All you really need is a steady hand to pour milk. If you wish to go down a more elaborate route, we suggest asking for help.
3 – Buy, Buy, Buy!
Goodness knows it is very unlikely that Mum will treat herself, so we suggest taking advantage of this special day to do just that. You might not immediately think about tools as a gift for friends and family, but we drill-y think our unusual gift ideas can help you show your Mum how much you appreciate her.
4 – Pretty and Personalised
If your mum enjoys art, here’s a thoughtful gift that’s easy on the budget and gives you creative licence. Why not create a unique and creative piece of art which can be framed in your home? We recommend using our paint aerosols for a one-of-a-kind image. Disclaimer: we do not advice or advocate spray painting walls without permission. We don’t think Mum would appreciate that surprise.
5 – Your Time
While a new bag or a big bunch of flowers is a lovely idea, it is likely that your mum would love to have some of your time. Help her with a DIY project she’s been hoping to accomplish around the house, or perhaps play her favourite game. It is these moments that she will cherish more than a material gift.
While any of these ideas will likely score you big brownie points, this weekend is really about celebrating and honouring the women who have brought in our life: our mom, our aunts, our sisters, friends, grandmothers and all the other women who have mothered us. If you use any of these ideas, we would love to see how it turned out.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mums out there.
