Mother's Day - The gift of a special moment
Being a mother is a gratifying and incredible experience, but it is also a full time job. Mums wake up daily to a never ending list of responsibilities such as house chores, catching up on work, grocery shops, maintaining the bills, laundry, and the kids. That’s why all mums deserve a break. We believe that Mother’s Day is about honoring those strong, patient, and wise women in our lives. This year try to take the opportunity to show some love to the role model who spends each day shaping us into who we are.
If you’re still struggling to find the perfect gift, forget sending flowers, our team prepared some touching gift giving options so you can show your appreciation on this special day.
Start with a hug
It doesn’t matter which gift you choose to give, your mum is always going to live for your happiness. A simple warm hug from the ones we love helps balance the tasks and routines of day to day life. Sometimes life gets busy and we forget to take a minute before running out the door to friends, work, or school. So start off this special day by giving your mum a moment of affection, and let her feel you truly know she’s appreciated even through the busiest of times.
Breakfast in bed
With the ever changing autumn hues outside and a cooler breeze in the air, there is nothing better than snuggling in bed just a little longer. So why not give your dedicated mum (or wife) the quiet and relaxing morning she deserves. Start by preparing a healthy breakfast for her; scramble some eggs, toast a couple slices of grain bread and top with smashed avocado (don’t forget to season with salt and pepper!), add lots of freshly cut fruits and veggies on the side! To give the extra special touch add a cup of squeezed juice and a nice cup of freshly brewed coffee. Finally, set the tone by putting on her favorite album in the background.
A bundle of comfort
If you’re the gifty type, remember that sometimes you don’t need to spend a lot of money to put together a nice care package for your mum. Being a mum is hard work, and showing your appreciation by bringing her a bundle of her favorite stuff is the perfect way to show her you care! We suggest putting together a box of her favorite pralines or chocolates, a bottle of No.Wo, a bath bomb, and an aromatic lotion or face mask. Finally, light a scented soy candle, and place your gift with a soft blanket to give the gift of coziness.
Let her manifest in the moment.
Together in the nature
With the daily hustle and bustle of life, spending time on a family outing could be one of the most heartwarming gifts to arrange. Organize with your family members to spend quality time together at a nature park, beach, or by a river. Once you decide on the spot, prepare a picnic basket with all the best nosh your family enjoys. We suggest some freshly baked muffins, chopped fruit, fresh juice, cheeses and biscuits! Set up everything at the front door, and wait for your mum to wake up. Tip: you could even set this up in your own backyard! If you have time, write a card or poem to read on arrival. These family outings are always a great occasion to make memories and appreciate precious time together, while enjoying the beautiful yellow and green colors of fall.
A day at the spa (for any lucky lady)
Pamper the special woman in your life with a day at the spa. Ensure your wife, mum, aunt, or best friend has the time to destress, soothe, and ground her body and mind. There are many professional options such as facials, body massages, reiki, or time in a eucalyptus steam sauna. See if the local spa near you offers a bundle deal or special treatment recommendation to cater to on arrival. Express your gratitude and send her off on a private day of relaxation.
Have a happy Mother’s Day
We believe there are many ways to show you care through simple and loving moments, which is exactly what every strong woman needs!
Whether you choose to indulge your mum with delicious homemade food, experiences in nature, soothing aromatic scents, or a relaxing day away, add your personal touch and enjoy every happy moment.
