Make her day

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to spoil that special lady in your life and show her just how much she means to you.

It’s a day that simply reminds us how much our mothers’ really do for us. It’s also the perfect opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to the grandmas and those who might have helped to raise us and guide us. Cards and gifts are starting to appear in the shops for ‘pet mums’ too, so it really is an occasion to mark and celebrate motherhood – in all its forms.

Celebrated across the world on many different days, this year it falls on Sunday 31st March. When this time of year comes back around, we are inundated with emails and messages surrounding the best gifts for our mums. From beautiful blooms to delicious chocolate, thoughtful jewellery pieces and gifts for the home we think she’ll love. The truth is of course, that every mum is different. There are new mums and grandmas – highlighting that every motherhood is different and so every gift and thoughtful gesture will be different. That being said, a bunch of flowers is always a good idea.

It’s about knowing what she’ll like and appreciate. You know your mum better than anyone, that any gift or gesture you decide on will no doubt go down well and be equally appreciated. It could be something more for you to do together – a garden visit or afternoon tea. A day of shopping, a trip to the theatre or a concert. 

Personalised gifts have grown tremendously popular in recent years. From a mug for her morning cuppa, to initial necklaces and monogrammed scarves, it’s a gift that is fun and personal.

The truth is of course, that much like Valentine’s Day, a day marking ‘Mother’s Day’ shouldn’t be the only opportunity we take to say thank you. If we’re lucky, our mothers are there for us every day, come rain or shine, so we should always try and do the same.
