No matter the occasion, there are so many wonderful ways to celebrate Mum! Whether she is a first-time mother, your own unconditionally loved mum or your dear granny, here are some truly special ways to let her know just how much you love her. The secret is to give her something that only you can give… something that is as unique and special as she is. The following are five gifts that you can give from the heart.
A Monthly Gift-Club Membership
If it is difficult to get away for a day or a week, why not give your mum a membership in a monthly gift-club that keeps on giving throughout the year. Whether she lives far away or in the same house, a coffee club, tea-basket, wine, beer or a chocolate-candy club could make the ideal gift. When the present arrives each month it will remind her how deeply you really care. It will also let her know that you have selected a gift designed specifically for her.
A Beautiful Piece of Jewellery
Jewellery never grows old. While it may seem like the standby gift, when you give a piece of exclusively made diamonds and gold, or a personalized charm bracelet like this one found at Michael Hill, the gift becomes much more than a token. Diamond earrings, stacking rings, a stunning statement necklace, or add-on charms, are gifts that celebrate how very precious the mum in your life truly is. Moreover, when you give the real thing, yellow-gold, sterling silver, and precious gems, your present will withstand the test of time, as enduring as the emotions that bind you!
A Trip for Two
Give Mum the gift of time. Take her away for a weekend, get-away to the country, go on a weeklong cruise, shop in the city, or go to a place she has only dreamed of visiting, yet has never had the time… until now. Show her that you love her and want nothing more than to enjoy some uninterrupted time together. Turn off the cell phones and take her to a place that you know she will enjoy. Cruise down a river; sip tea at the local bed-and-breakfast, shop until you are about to drop and then take her out for wine and cheese.
A Day at the Spa
Give mum a gift certificate or whisk her away for a day at the local spa. Nothing appeals to the senses more than pampering. Reflexology, a massage, a complete manicure-pedicure, a new hairstyle or cosmetology consultation are some of the best ways you can celebrate your devotion to mum. Alternatively, create a spa-day at home. Then, take her out to lunch or dinner to finish off a perfect day.
Most mums appreciate gifts made just for them, by you, more than most any other gift. Put together a photo calendar, knit her a scarf or make her a new dress. You might even offer to paint her lounge room! If you are not the handy sort, have an outfit custom made for her. Ask her to pick out the design, details, and fabrics.
Love means taking the time to find (or make) the perfect gift. Celebrate mum. Remind her that she is truly one of a kind!
