With Mother’s Day fast approaching, no doubt you’re looking for ways to show Mum that you’re thankful for all she’s done. If you’re past the stage where giving her breakfast in bed or letting her sleep in are enough to blow her away with your thoughtfulness, consider these nine ideas.
1. Listen to What She Needs Done (and do it)
Has she mentioned that there’s something on her to-do list that she never seems to get to? Whether it’s lawn care or getting things put up in the attic, give her a few hours of your time and make sure it gets done right.
2. Get Her Out of the House
Take her out to lunch, the movies, or whatever her preferred activity is. But try to make it a little more special than an average outing and give her the opportunity to get dolled up a bit.
3. Pamper Her
Purchase time with a masseuse or at the spa. If you’re not sure what she’ll prefer, get a general gift card that can be used for anything.
4. Create a Scrapbook
Even if you’re not super crafty, you can still create a scrapbook. Gather up some of your favourite images and piece them together by hand or opt for a digital variety.
5. Write to Her
Mums are undeniably sentimental, even when they try to keep a stiff upper lip. Spend some time writing out a thoughtful letter that tells her what you appreciate about her the most.
6. Donate in Her Name
If your mom has everything she could ever want, consider making a donation in her name to her favourite charity. If you’re not sure which one she’d prefer, you can ask or propose a few you think she’d like.
7. Treat Her and Her Friends
Does your mom like to host? Give her all the glory of hosting a gathering for her friends, without doing any of the work. Take care of setting up, the food, the entertainment, and anything else she usually does, so she’s free to focus on her guests.
8. Give Her a Tech Guide
If you mum is struggling to use new technology, be it a phone, computer program, or even the DVR, write her a no-nonsense guide that teaches her how to use the features she’ll want to use the most. Don’t be surprised if she asks you to make them for the other gadgets around the house too.
9. Send Flowers
