Mother's Day is approaching, why not make an effort to make her feel as special as she truly is? You have the opportunity to put some extra effort into making you’re the special lady in your life happy, to fully show your appreciation at what this wonderful woman has done for you throughout your life or during the past few years.
Here are a few ideas for you to consider:
1. Giving small, yet meaningful, gifts.
Get her something you noticed she liked without her mentioning it. She loves the smell of lavender, so bring home some lavender sprigs one day. Or, if she is running out of her favorite perfume, purchase a replacement for her.
2. Create new experiences together.
Arranging classes to foster a passion or future business idea of hers, a vintner’s course for example, shows that you know what’s important to her and that you’re supportive.
3. Do some of her duties.
Make her feel appreciated and do some of the house work that she may usually do. Or better, yet, be soccer Dad for a month so she doesn’t have to worry about taking the kids to soccer practice for a change.
4. Cook for her!
We are all familiar with the saying, “A way to a mans heart is through is stomach!” Well, she has to eat too and she loves well prepared and delicious food. Give her the royal experience by cooking a 5 star meal for her or hire a private chef to do it for both of you! She spent around months and years cooking for you, and probably still does it to this day. Why not turn the tables and cook something for her for a change?
5. Be romantic by planning special time together.
Picnics are a classic and thoughtful way to spend time. More importantly, knowing that you planned a romantic picnic and all she has to do is show up. Don’t forget all the trimmings; a parasol for her, flowers, wine, pillows to get comfortable, etc. can make a woman feel like a princess.
6. Pamper her (Spa Day)
She took care of everyone else, now it's time for her to be pampered at a local day spa. Let her choose from several services, including hair styling, massage, and manicure and pedicure. Remember to include a tip when you book the gift.
These are all great ideas for making her feel special and for creating new memories. Which idea will you use for Mother's Day?
