Raise A Toast For Someone Who raised YOU,
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
Mother’s Day 2017 is just around the corner. The atmosphere and the markets are full of gift products for mothers. You might still be running out of ideas about just the right thing for your mum.
How about planning the whole package of admiration for your Mom who have worked all day and night just for the sake of their child well being and happiness. Rather than giving her a present (like you have been doing all years) why not give her the feeling of being pampered and looked after for 24 hours.
Following, I have listed few ways that can help you in expressing your appreciation for your mum. You can pick any one of them or maybe combination of 1 and 9 works best for you.
Start with the breakfast and flowers:
Prepare a homemade scrumptious breakfast for her. Nothing beats than a breakfast in bed being made by your own child. This would show the care and affection for her.
Prepare the House:
Make sure the home is nice and clean. You can also arrange some fresh flowers in the living room. And don’t let her do any chores for today; no matter it would be laundry, dishes, changing bin bags, gathering toys not a single thing. It’s her day after all.
Dress, Shoes, Jewellery, Bag:
Her looks shouldn’t be less than a gorgeous mum, so if you can Iron her dress for the day, take her shoes out, help her in choosing the bag and jewellery, this all would sum up in a delightful day.
Drop her to Work:
If she is working today and she has to travel then try to drop/pick her from the work place. Like she always use to do with your schools and clubs. If you not a driver you can communicate with your siblings or father for this. But make sure you have communicated beforehand so you know their availability too.
After everybody’s stomach is full, now you all can sit down and plan the day for her. Take her out for the shopping if she is a shopaholic mum, if she is foodie then you can plan a Lunch out, if she is one of that adventurous mum you can take her for the skydive session.
Ditch the normal Spa, go for Float Spa:
No one can say no to Spa, if she has already been going to normal spa then try the float spa. The floatation therapy takes out all of your stress and pain. This floating on water makes you feel like floating on air. I think this should be must have on Mother’s Day.
Give her a New Look:
If spa is not her style, then you can take her for hair care, it could be a haircut, hair colour or any healthy hair treatment. May be she has been wanted this for long but just delaying it. And remember to add blow dry for the perfect final touch.
Sit and Relax:
Trust me this is already too much for the day. Once she is done with her best afternoon cure, it’s now the family time to sit and relax. This is the time when she would express her feelings for the day she just spent and actually you can check how well have you done so far.
You can choose the gift according to her preference; it could be a nice perfume, a handbag, high end skin care product, statement or pendant necklace. If she is a fitness freak then gift her a fitbit or her favourite gadget. You can also try to work with some art and craft to make a customised gift for her. If she is more into kitchen and cooking you can gift her kitchen appliance she has been looking for. Also if she is a baking pro why not give her something that would ease her in long lengthy baking process. If nothing works, you all can go to a photographer for a family picture with date and event mentioned on that. You can also do this every year round like you do for any other festive or cultural event.
Charity or Donate:
To make her feel good about oneself the best thing you can do is donate or charity with her name to a group she supports. Nothing beats the feel of high self esteem.
After all relaxation and gifts, it’s time to serve the dinner. If you are good with cooking then gather her favourite recipes and make it for dinner. Or you can take her to the Restaurant that does her choice of cuisine. May be she have been wanted to try something new but couldn’t decide whether everyone would like or not. As you know there is always someone in the family who is choosy with food.
A Good day and A Good Night:
After a wonderful day it’s time for everyone to have a good sleep. But hang on its not over yet! How about gifting her new feather feel pillow, a duvet or may be silk pyjamas. Try to add element of surprise while gifting these.
I can bet you she will have one unforgettable day that she would cherish for the whole year. May God bless our beautiful mothers.
