So your mamma bear deserves a month-long vacation on a private island, but all you can afford is a scented candle? No worries, a lot of us understand that struggle.
Trolling through the mall trying to find the ‘perfect’ Mother’s Day gift is the most uninspired thing you could do. On your left you’ll find the body wash gift sets and on your right – pastel coloured mugs with sassy slogans like “mommy is boss”. And smack bam in the middle you’ll find the cards: over-priced cardboard covered in photos of flowers that look like they were chosen from a stock image site – and chances are they probably were. Don’t get me going on the cliché lines inside the cards – that’s a rant for another post. So, you’re in the mall and the ‘Mother’s Day gift section’ is leaving you disappointed at the clichéd optioned and frustrated at the price of the good stuff. Honestly? Join the club!
So is there a middle ground? A point between a second rate gift and breaking the bank? I think yes!
Put down that body wash gift set and step away from the stock image cards!
If your mom is a card person, then go the extra mile and personalize the gesture. Choose something hand crafted, or even better – make it yourself. Don’t just tell but show your mom that she means the world to you. Personalized cards will deliver that message.
Share the memories!
Do you have memorable moments captured on camera? Great! Get them printed! From standard prints to polaroids and strips, don’t keep those moments stored on your phone and Insta, share them with your Mom.
Give her quality time!
Share the highlights of your week, catch up and create great memories. Mother’s love spending time with their kids, and with our busy lives – sometimes quality time is the greatest gift you can give someone.
