» Listings for February 2013
Mothers day is coming up on the 10th March, and its a nice time to spoil our mums and say thank you for being there and doing things for us. As a mum myself I know that the little things are the most precious, so we have compiled a list of things that dont cost the earth to treat mum and show that you care.
- Spend Time with Your Mum
Kids become teenagers, who then become adults with our own careers, families, and lives. Somewhere along the way most of us spend much less time with our mothers than we used to. Taking an afternoon, a day, or a few hours to spend with your mother will truly show her how much you care. Here are a few ideas to make it a special occasion:
- Invite her out for a cup of coffee or tea and catch up
- Attend church with her
- Buy a DVD she wants to see and bring over the wine and popcorn
- Invite her over for a family dinner or for brunch in her honor
- Offer Your Services to Make her Life Easier
Is there something that you do that your mother could benefit from (or has hinted she would like help with)? For example, Perhaps Mum needs help with downloading apps or music. Gutters need cleaned, cars need washed, and I’m sure your Mum has a thing or two she would love some help with. Better yet, make her a nice cup of tea and let her relax while you knock a few things off of her to-do list.
- Make a gift
Home made gifts are always nice on mothers day, a special picture from a young child, a home made card, a cake, some shortbread are all great ideas for a cheap easy and thoughtful gift. Another thing that I once did for my mother was to make a photo album of all the lovely photos I had of her and me together over the years, It was relatively easy to do and it is something she still treasures today.
- Buy an inexpensive gift
Flowers, a plant, a singular cupcake from a fancy bakery (cupcake dreams in Bedale!) or how about putting a lovely photo of the 2 of you in a lovely frame?
- Take her out for dinner
