A mother’s love is without compare and it lasts a lifetime. Whether she’s the Earth Goddess who birthed you, the auntie who was always there, the nan who showered you in kisses or the someone special who stepped up when you had no one else, mums across the world — in every shape and form — are the people who know us the best and love us the most. We’ve got plenty of gift-giving ideas for every budget to make Mother’s Day special. Best of all, you can order online and have your items delivered with zero contact straight to your door (or your mum’s!).
Mothers are the people who love us for no good reason. And those of us who are mothers know it’s the most exquisite love of all. — Maggie Gallagher (writer)
A mother is the only person on earth who can divide her love among all her children and still give each child all of her love. Spoil her this Mother’s Day with a heartfelt gift to make her feel as special as she makes you feel. Forget the stock-standard slippers, dressing gown and bath soaps… mum could use a special place to escape, relax and unwind, like a cosy reading nook with cushions and a soft throw blanket.
Many mums now, more than ever, are also working from home. Help her create a dedicated workspace with a stylish desk, comfy chair, inspirational print and some luscious indoor plants. Fingers crossed we’ll all be back to a normal life soon, but working the occasional day from home is set to be a trend that stays. Creating a home office is a good idea — mum will love having her own workspace.
A mother is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend.
The shopping centres may be closed, but you can still show your love. Here’s a few crafty ideas for creative kids to spoil mum on the 10th of May.
❥ Print out your favourite photo with mum and pop it in a repurposed frame.
❥ Bake her a batch of cupcakes — this video shows you how to make some heavenly combinations.
❥ Write her a poem or paint her portrait — she’ll cherish it forever.
❥ Create a deck of I-owe-you cards with messages such as “15 Kisses” and “A Huge Bear Hug” — she can use them when she needs them.
❥ Make her a homemade Mother’s Day card with a special message or poem.
❥ Pick some flowers from the garden and wrap them into a bouquet.
❥ Make a short movie or teach her some moves for a TikTok to post online — imagine how funny it will be to watch together years later!
Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a mother.
Single mothers take on double the roles and responsibilities that many other parents often share. There’s a special place in heaven for parents who are doing it all by themselves. Show her how much you appreciate all that she does for you by letting her put her feet up for the day as you:
❥ bring her breakfast in bed
❥ fold the laundry
❥ stack the dishwasher
❥ bake her some cupcakes
❥ make her favourite dinner
Mum’s always looking after you, who’s looking after Mum? A special gift or act of kindness will make her feel appreciated.
Becoming a mumma bear for the first time is one of the most exciting (and scary!) moments in a woman’s life. From the moment she sees the first scan… notices the baby bump… starts to feel the first kicks, the mothering instinct kicks in — and remains for the rest of her life. Help her transition into this amazing new role with a practical gift like:
❥ an armchair for nursing
❥ an ottoman
She’ll be doing a lot of middle-of-the-night feeding, so make sure she’s as comfy and warm as she can be.
I loved you before I met you.
When you have a newborn baby, you’re a newborn mum, trying to work out what every cry means. When you have a teenager, you’re a teenage mother, quickly forced into staying a step ahead of all the sneaky behaviour. Grandmas are the Yodas of parents — they’ve been there, done that… and know all about simply soaking up the joys of loving you (and stuffing you full of pancakes!). Chances are you may not be able to visit your gran this Mother’s Day, so spoil her with a family FaceTime dinner or get something special delivered straight to her front door.
You don’t mess with your grandmother. — Prince William
For those who can’t pick up the phone and call their mum, let alone give her a hug, Mother’s Day can be tough. Do something that reminds you of her — such as playing a familiar song, watching a movie you use to enjoy together or cooking her favourite meal — and give yourself permission to have a good cry if you need to. No doubt she’s watching over you.
A mum’s hug lasts long after she let’s go.
