Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I’ve seen lots of Mother’s Day Gift Guides floating around so I wanted to write a slightly alternative one.
If it’s trinkets that you’re looking for here are a couple of bits similar to what I might buy my own Mum for Mother’s day. They’re all under £10 so won’t break the bank.
Because I’m at uni, I often don’t spend Mother’s Day with my Mum so if we’re not together on the day I tend not to faff around getting a present for when I do see her. Instead I’ll tell her to get some flowers or chocolates or she’ll let me know if she’s seen anything she likes and I’ll get that for her instead. It’s not the most spontaneous or ‘romantic’ way of doing things but I’m not a fan on commercialism for commercialism’s sake.
Another option is to get crafty and make something for mother’s day. One thing I’ve done in the past is to make a little box out of coloured card and buy some chocolates to pop in. If you don’t know how to make a box, here’s a really easy tutorial.
If you’re still struggling for ideas here are a few more, but don’t forget that time is more valuable than money. And I can bet that your Mum would much rather you spend the day with her than just spend your money on her.
- Take her out for a meal, or cook one for her at home.
- A spa day.
- Go to the theatre of cinema.
- Go out for cocktails.
- Breakfast in Bed.
- Buy flowers.
- Bake a cake.
- Make a photo album or a video.
