Mother’s Day Ideas – Gifts and Ways to Celebrate

Mother’s Day is one of the most special days in a mother’s life. However it could also become the worst holiday if you fail to make your mom or wife happy during this special occasion. Unfortunately, for most people especially guys, buying the best gift or getting the most perfect treat for a mother could prove to be the hardest thing in the world.

Since nobody wants to spend  money on a gift that the other person will not love, this article will serve as a guide to what to give and what NOT to give to a mother on Mother’s day—or for that matter, or any other occasion.

Mothers’ Day Gift Ideas

The number one trend in finding a gift for a mom is to buy something that  she can use to pamper herself, of make her life more convenient herself. However, one rule you need to keep in mind is that you should make an effort to get her something really nice, whether its perfume or a kitchen gadget. If you want to buy her a perfume, for example, you don’t necessarily have to buy a designer brand (though it would certainly be appreciated if you can afford it). But do make sure to find a scent that she will find appealing.

Most mothers love anything that is eco-friendly, as well as most things that are garden-related. Buy her a bouquet of flowers (and don’t pick her prized roses!) You can also go for something kooky like silk flowers with floral scent: buy a vial of flower scent which she can apply to her flowers so she can enjoy the fragrance any time she wants. Better yet, get her some potted flowers that last longer, or potted fresh herbs for her cooking.

DON’T buy complicated techie gadgets which she won’t enjoy and probably wouldn’t use. Also don’t buy her something you want for yourself, in the hopes that she will just pass it on to you eventually. That defeats the purpose of doing something for your mother.

Lastly, DON’T buy her stuff that she really DOESN’T want – like cosmetic surgery certificates, exercise equipment, cellulite creams, or menopause supplements. If she really wants these things then she’ll buy them herself and besides, if it comes from other people, it only seems somewhat offensive.

If you want to see a smile on the face of your mom (or wife) on Mother’s Day then why not give her something you made or prepared yourself – like breakfast-in-bed, surprise party, or cook for her ready-made meals for the family to last for a week. The idea is to come up with gift that sends the message that you care and appreciate her role in your life.

Mother’s Day: An Occasion to Remember

Every second Sunday of May, mothers all over the world are given that special day to be honored, recognized and  saluted for all their sacrifices, hard work and unconditional love. It comes only once every year, so a lot of us really scramble to make sure that our mother is given the deference that she deserves.

For those who are trying to figuring out what they will do for next year’s Mother’s day (it’s just a month away!), you might want to take note of these suggestions. While these pointers may be common for some, certain twists and tweaks add a special—and unexpected —

The Breakfast in Bed Approach.

Sure, a lot of people do this, but this is definitely one of the best ways to start the day right. Even before your mother wakes up, you should have already made her breakfast; include her favorite morning drink and her favorite breakfast dish, especially if there is some delicacy which she enjoys. You may need to get the help of your father or a younger sibling in order to keep her from jumping out of bed and preparing breakfast for the family; the hardest part is making sure that you all wake up before your mother does, just this once.

A little tweak to this is to ensure that everyone in the house tidies everything the night before Mother’s Day, so that after her relaxing breakfast, your mom will no longer have to do all of these for the entire

Mother’s Day

Who doesn’t love spas and salons?

Our mother’s hands really deserve a nice hand massage for all the hard work they put in. If you can afford it, buy her a full massage treatment at a nice spa. If you don’t have the money for the spa, you can always do such services at home. One sibling becomes the pedicurist; another one gets to be the masseuse,

Cook her favorite meal and accentuate the table using her most loved flowers.

During lunch or dinner, take this opportunity to cook the dishes she likes. Remember that while you may not be able to match her cooking skills, the gesture would certainly be very much appreciated. When you prepare the table, make sure to use her favorite flowers as the centerpiece. You might in addition decide to present a bouquet of flowers at the end of the meal.  You don’t necessarily have to memorize a speech or research about what you are going to say; just be yourself and say thank you for everything she does for the whole family.

Go daring and bold.

Mothers who had children when they were really young often had a lot of wishes and aspirations that have been put off and forgotten. Now is the time to bring out your mom’s inner child by taking her to some fun and daring activities like wall-climbing, bungee-jumping or backpacking.

These suggestions should make the upcoming Mother’s Day fun and memorable for that special woman. Bottom line though, is that you don’t need to wait for this event to do special things for your mom.

Why Do Mothers Love Flowers As A Gift?

As you may well know, Moms are the most precious beings in everyone’s life. They are those beautiful angels who don’t get bored from giving, sacrificing and helping their children even after they grow and become real men and women. Let’s get back to the past for a while and think. How many times your mother fed you when you were hungry, when you were little? I’m sure countless times, right? How many times they checked on you every 10 minutes when you were sick and spent sleepless nights to watch over you? I’m sure countless times, too. How many times they gave you hope and shared with you joy, success and even wisdom to overcome failure? You know what is the other thing that is for sure? If we were to create a list of what our mothers did to us, it will be endless.

People celebrate their Mothers on Mother’s day each year and well, that’s quite thoughtful. It is one day of the year where you get to give your Mother a small fraction of what she entirely gave you.

Well as important as you thinking on how to overcome weight loss plateau, it is far important to think of thanking your mother every day. It is but funny how sometimes, personal priorities like fitness concerns can be more important than having a little time each day to make you your mother feel special and loved.

Do you notice that during Mother’s day people tend to give all sorts of gifts to impress their moms on a special day just like anyone else? Well, if you are into making your mother feel special and loved, why not present a flower? It doesn’t really matter where it come from. It could be from along the road to your house, or maybe bought from a side walk vendor, or maybe from your backyard, giving your mother a flower can represent so much appreciation and love. The best thing about this is that, you can always find flowers anywhere everyday.

Flower Deliveries by Mail

There is nothing more exciting and special than receiving an unexpected delivery of flowers in the mail! When trying to come up with a unique surprise that is out of the ordinary, flowers sent by post can be one of the best ideas. It has also never been easier to accomplish this surprise for someone special. There are so many websites that now offer flowers sent by post. The exact flower arrangement can be selected online, and customers have hundreds of arrangements to browse through and pick from to really make the gift personalized.

Most of these flower delivery companies also send a note along with the delivery at no extra charge. Customers can write their own notes, or select from hundreds of pre-written notes for any occasion. These reliable websites accept all major credit cards, so that the payment can easily be made online.

Many of the websites not only offer beautiful flower arrangements, but also chocolates, stuffed animals, and gorgeous flower vases that can be kept and reused for a lifetime. In the past, people could only give flowers to one another in person. This made it difficult for friends, family, and lovers who live far away from one another. Now, no matter the distance between two people, they can still exchange a gift of flowers with one another, with the help of reliable online companies.

It can be hard to be far away from those closest to our heart and receiving a surprise flower delivery can really help cheer things up! This is a great gift not only for romantic couples that are far away, but also for family. Mother’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and birthdays can all be made more special with flowers sent by post. The feeling a grandmother or mother gets when she gets a surprise delivery of flowers at her door from her grandchildren or children is one of a kind.

Many couples that live with their spouse still enjoy exchanging flowers by mail. It is fun and exciting for a woman to receive a delivery of flowers on her desk at work from her husband, whether it be for an anniversary, Valentine’s Day, birthday, “just because”, or even “I‘m sorry“.  It reminds the wife or girlfriend that her partner really cares for her, and that he took the time to think of something out of the ordinary to surprise her with.

One of the best things about arranging flower deliveries by post is that they do not have to be arranged too far ahead of time. Many online flower delivery companies are able to take orders up to the day of delivery! So if someone accidentally forgot the birthday or anniversary of a loved one, they can easily arrange a delivery the same day. Also, if there is an unexpected event, a bouquet can be picked out and sent same day. Flower deliveries by mail are a fantastic way to delight friends and family!

A Special April Holiday

A Special April Holiday

At seven months pregnant, with Mother’s Day Date just around the corner, I have started to ask myself the question, “What is the role of a mother?” So far, I know it means the aches and pains of pregnancy and joy of little kicks. I have even considered the role of the father. What role will my husband play in raising our baby? As a “kid magnet” with high expectations of himself and others, I know he will provide endless hours of entertainment, help with homework, provide an example of sportsman-like conduct and plenty of rules about how to dress. Perhaps my first role as a mother was finding a good father.

The best example of motherhood in my life is my mother. My mother provided a framework for life and encouraged us to fill in the blanks. Endless hours of entertainment stimulated the mind, heart and soul. Homework was a playground for learning; an opportunity to ask countless questions about matters of the world. Sportsman-like conduct was a guide for how to treat people. Rules of dress were guidelines to aide in building self-esteem and respect for those around us.

My confidence, attitude and open-mindedness come from my mother. She taught me to love people and learning, and to give – if even just an ear. Until now, I’ve celebrated Mother’s Day for her. If I can do what she did to make the world a wonderful place for my children – Mother’s Day is an April Holiday we can share.
