What Mums really want this Mother's Day
I saw an amazing poster this week. It said "Spend time with your parents, treat them well because one day when you look up from your phone, they won't be there anymore". As a busy, working Mum I can totally relate to this. I'm always trying to multi-task and please everyone. I started to have a think about what would be my ideal Mother's Day and have come up with my TOP TEN MOTHERS DAY LIST.
1 Give your Mum a cuddle. This doesn't happen as often as it should.
2 Say "I Love You". Too often we assume our Mums know this but how often do we actually utter the words?
3 Spoil your Mum a little. Breakfast in bed would be a wonderful idea.
4 Go for a walk together. This gets us away from all electrical devices and really makes us doing something rather rare which is talking to each other!
5 Enjoy a lovely lunch - can't beat good quality food that you've not had to cook yourself.
6 Play a board game - this is lots of fun and is real quality time together.
7 Do something that your Mum hasn't asked you to do. No matter how small, wash the dishes, pick something up etc just make a little gesture that will go a long way.
8 Make sure all the chores around the house are done. There is no point in having a lovely day if you then have to spend all night tidying up.
9 Give your Mum an I.O.U to do one of the above points with her later on in the year. Don't just do it once a year.
10 Buy her a personalised present from CalEli Gifts to show that you have planned ahead and been really thoughtful. It will be something that she can look at everyday and remember the fantastic day that you have given her.
