The second Sunday of May is marked on everyone’s calendar, as it is a special day for those that have given birth to us or those that have raised. Our Mothers.

But the question is how do you ensure that this day is extra special for them, as lockdown served as a huge hiccup to finding our mothers amazing gifts?

Well for starters, it is important to know that not all gifts, need to be of monetary value. Sometimes gifts for Moms that involve effort are so much more effective than expensive ones.

With that being said, there is nothing that screams more effort than making a delicious home-cooked meal. Seeing that mothers spend 80% of their time in the kitchen, giving back to her will most definitely make her feel a little special.

Another special gift includes letting your mommy know you love her.  We often forget to tell our loved ones that they mean the world to us, so getting an old journal from the house and writing down a list of why you love her and why she is the ultimate best can instantly make her feel that she is truly appreciated.

Also, a gift that will most certainly catch her off guard, is taking her to the movies at home. Ta-daaaa! I know that sounds a bit too cheesy, but that is the easiest way to finesse your mom. Bake up some popcorn and find her favourite movie and devote every second to making her feel like she is in an actual cinema.

Last, but not least. A spa day is one way to EVERY women’s heart, so ladies, grab all your hair, skin, nail and toe products and doll her up on this special day.

One thing to remember is that every mother out there is different, so because she is your mother and you know her best, only you will truly know what will make her the happiest. Trust yourself and go for it!
