Here are some gift ideas for Mother’s Day that she’ll love for sure:
Write her a letter: even if love is always present between you, taking the time to write the strength of your bonds, your admiration and how much you love her will necessarily fill her with pure happiness. A letter is a precious gift as it can be kept forever. And if you need a little inspiration to start, here are some wish ideas for Mother’s Day!
Offer her a mug: for a more handmade gift, you can paint a pretty mug of your choice or glue dried flowers or flock a photo on it (the funniest ones are the best!).
Book a massage (together or just for her): our mothers work hard for everyone else and sometimes forget to think about themselves. A massage is the perfect gift to finally give some time to take care of her. She will be very grateful!
Print photos: choose your favourites together and have them printed! It's always a pleasure to look at photos of happy times together and reminisce about good memories.
4 activities to do on Mother’s Day
A romantic dinner: yes, you read that right! Why not have a nice candlelit dinner with your mother? This could be an opportunity to cook a delicious dinner together or to prepare her favourite dishes and invite her to your home to spend a wonderful evening. Otherwise, invite her to the restaurant is, of course, always a good idea.
A walk in nature: a breath of fresh air is the best way to disconnect. Find a nice spot in nature and take your mum for a walk, it will soothe you and give you a great time.
A day at the market/shopping: what a pleasant place the markets are, you can wander between the stalls, taste and discover pretty local products... This is a nice moment to share with your mother and enjoy together. And then, go on a shopping trip, it's always fun!
A cultural outing: a play, a dance ballet, an exhibition... There are so many opportunities to spend time together that are different from everyday life! And when it comes to culture, there's something for everyone, find the wackiest exhibitions to have a memorable time!
