Make your Mum feel special on Mother's Day!
With Mother’s Day around the corner, you must have started thinking already as to how to plan that perfect day for the super-woman of your life. Well, she surely deserves all the pampering and adulation, not just on that day of the year which has been dedicated to her, but all the year round, for we owe our very existence to her. However, this day observed all across the world, must stand out in terms of the special treatment that all mums in all corners of the earth, should receive. Let us not be cynical and chuck this out as a mere show; after all, who doesn’t want to get all the more attention and affection on a particular day!
For starters, you can take her by surprise by getting up earlier than she does and preparing a nice breakfast for her. No matter how shaky you might be about it as to how unpalatable it may turn out, she’ll taste delight in every morsel of it! A handmade card, with the touch and feel of her own one, is a piece of memory that she is going to treasure forever. After all, it is not every day when you turn into an artist cum poet! That extra effort and care that you put in shall go a long way in holding the blissful smile on her face! Collect the best pictures that you have had with her, over the years, and make a collage out of them. Make sure you choose ones belonging to different time-frames; that is to say, it should portray your bond right from your infant days, to your first school-going experience, the day when you brought home your first award, your college graduation ceremony and so on!
If you want to gift her something substantial, then select your gift according to her tastes and choices. If she’s a book-worm, grab a copy of the latest bestseller that suits her preferences as a reader- who else but you should know it best! Alternately, you can create a basket of her favourite things - a perfume bottle, a piece of jewellery, cosmetic items, a music CD of her favourite music or the DVD of her most-loved film etc. Make it all the more special with a hand-written letter and beautify it with a lovely bouquet! Besides, devote what’s most precious, to her: your time. Take her out and do things together that you both enjoy, and do not find enough leisure usually to indulge in. go for shopping together, have coffee, visit some local park or garden, or any other such serenely fascinating place. The wonderful memories you make shall stay for years to come!
If she’s not a very outdoor person, you can the stay at home itself enjoyable in its own way! Share your life-stories that you have to give a miss amidst the hectic schedule of our daily lives, play board-games with her, treat her to a home-made lunch (with a home-made cake baked by you for dessert) and finish the chores that she has long been insisting upon you to complete. Be it cleaning the kitchen, doing the dishes, arranging your wardrobe, watering the garden or anything of that sort, even a day’s gesture makes a huge difference! Catch up on a leisure afternoon with her, going through family albums together, reveling in the colourful moments you’ve spent over the years, letting her open her heart out to you, sharing secrets that you had so long not confided in her, and these little things will let her know how much you value and appreciate her.
Do whatever that makes her happy, shower all your attention on her and celebrate the priceless relationship in a way that makes her feel how much she means to you! They deserve to be acknowledged for being the wonder-women that they are! The heart-to-heart talks, the exuberant giggles and tears of ecstasy will resonate within her even long after the day has gone!
