Sneaky Ways to Figure out the Perfect Presents for Mum!

Have you gotten caught off guard by an approaching holiday or special occasion, only to find yourself stumped about ideas for the best presents for mum? There are a few sneaky tricks to finding out the perfect gift – but you must be stealthy about it!

Keep a Keen Eye…

Watch out for opportunities to catch her in the act of subconsciously indicating what she wants! If your mum is flipping through the television and comments on a product featured in a commercial, take note whether the response was positive or negative! Do a tiny bit of detective work to see if she keeps catalogues from any particular store, or if she owns a subscription to a hobby magazine. Put the pieces together and see what could be a good fit!

Of course, there are the universal unique gift ideas that fit just about every mom. Although gift cards are not very creative, a pass for digital downloads like music or books can provide a lot more personalization. Nights out on the town (or even a home-cooked dinner) are a great way to make any friend or family member feel special – especially when the occasion includes some awesome picture-taking opportunities. Mother’s day is a super time to spend some real quality time together.

Presents for Mum and Beyond!

If your mom also happens to be a grandmother, never forget the gifts that speak for the entire family. A new laptop skin or organic tote can be personalized with a photo of her precious children and grandchildren. Don’t forget about spa-weekends, a bottle of vintage wine, or unforgettable jewelry – a grandmother fulfills many roles that deserve recognition.

When you pay sharp attention to details and pick up on subtle cues (favorite movies, favorite gardening programs, favorite colors or patterns) you can always figure out the perfect presents for mum!

Mothers Day Poems

Mothers Day Poems

The tradition of honoring Mothers goes back to the Greeks and their celebrations of Rhea the mother of all their deities. The second Sunday in May was proclaimed as the official day to honor all mothers in the United States by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. With Mothers Day Cards and gifts we try to tell our Mothers what they mean to us.

Many have chosen the tradition of writing poems to celebrate the women who nurtured us. Words are used to express deep feelings and from the small child to the professional writer, great effort is put forth to honor in words the women we treasure. With a Mothers Day poem we endeavor to tell Mother how much we love her.

Many mothers can open a box that holds handwritten cards decorated with paper lace and hearts, mis-spelled words and crayon drawings. These precious mementos of their childs first efforts to say Happy Mothers Day, are treasures they keep for a lifetime.

Mothers Day cards may have become a big business, but to the woman who receives them the very fact she received it is worth more than a diamond ring. A poem filled with words that say her child feels loved and secure is more often than not the only time she will hear how much her sacrifices have meant. That is why each May we all sit down to write or search out already written poems to give she who deserves thanks.
