Gifts For Mum. So you are looking for a gift for your Mum and want something easy but something she will love, right? Sounds easier said than done. Never fear, we are here to help you with the process!
I am a mother myself so I can assure you that I may know a thing or two about a gift for a Mum. Let’s go for a mixture of things to nourish her soul and to really celebrate your mum.
Mum's love to feel loved and appreciated.
Honestly, it may sound pretty simple but every single mother I know, including myself, wants to feel loved and appreciated. It really is the thought that counts. So let’s start with some things that your mum may absolutely love! Here, we will go through some ideas that are specifically about making her feel special, loved, and appreciated.
A handwritten note, telling her all the things you love about her parenting, how her mothering style has shaped you for the better. Really think about the things she has done as your mother, that you hold a beautiful memory of.
In a card write down all the meals she has cooked for you, that you love to this day. Your mum may have spent hours upon hours, cooking for her family, to know that it is appreciated, will be welcomed.
What lift lessons has she taught you? Tell her on the day, write it down or record a clip and send it to her so she can re-watch it over and over, you can combine it with the other ideas above.
Make her breakfast in bed.
Get her to make a bucket list and talk about how you can help her achieve these things. You may learn a few new things about your mum and the interest in what is important to her, won’t go unnoticed.
Give her a manicure or pedicure. (or take her to get one professionally)
Create a picnic in the backyard or park.
Create a hamper with all of her favourite things, such as chocolates, skincare, PJ’s, the letter you have written, books on topics she may love.
Get her some comfy luxury pyjamas, sometimes mothers won’t spend the extra money on themselves when it comes to pyjamas but absolutely would love some designer PJ’s! To shop for womens sleepwear please click here
Does she love gardening? How about a pot that you have specifically found for her, that you feel represents her, then find it a plant, herb or vegetable that she will love.
Gifts For Mums - The Experience & Memories
Now, if you are looking for something to do with your mum, to hold for a memory, there may or may not be some restrictions where you are, however, let’s take a look at a few different options for a memorable day. Again, you want to think about her, the type of woman that she is, and connect the experience to her. While you may love the idea of lunch at a winery, yet she doesn’t drink, you may start to see a bit of a disconnect.
A lunch river cruise
A road trip to a bushfire impacted town, this is a really great way of supporting those in need, and a beautiful memory you can both carry ongoing.
Is she a spiritual mum? Can you book her in with an astrologer for a chart reading? (please note that you will want to find a reputable one, once you have, these readings can be mind-blowing! I can personally recommendKerry Galea, she is a scientist turned astrologer who also works with moon cycles and gardening. She is amazing at what she does.
Does she love tea and cakes? Find a tea room, they usually have a themes for Mother’s Day etc available
Book a cooking class and do it together, this can be done in person or online.
Hot air ballooning.
Book in for a massage.
Make a scrapbook together.
Take her to get her hair washed and dried, (with the head massage option)
Do an art class together. This can be done in person (sometimes with wine included) or online.
Go for a hike.
Take her to botanical gardens and walk through it together, just enjoying each other company
Take her to an art gallery.
Take her to the zoo and choose the “up close and personal encounters” she may be able to cuddle an animal that she absolutely loves.
Ok so by now, you should have an idea of what she might like. Most of all remember that celebrating your mum is a beautiful thing and all that she has done for you, so make her feel loved and appreciated.
