Where would we be without our Mum (or Mom)? I know I'd be lost without mine. So let's look at some Mother's Day Ideas to make this day super special.
Before we start - what date is Mothers Day for 2012?
Sunday, May 13 2012 is the day to say "Thanks Mum, I Love You"
Being a Mum myself, I love Mother's Day. (PS: In Australia Mom is spelt Mum!)
We need to remember everyone on this special day
– your wife, the mother of your adorable children
– your Mum (boy, we sure appreciate them once you’ve had kids of your own!)
– your Grandmother
The perfect day would involve NO housework and NO cooking! A massage, facial or even 5 minutes to myself would be bliss!
Mother's Day Gift Ideas
Homemade Mother's Day gifts are the best. Don’t forget Grandma, she’d love something too.
- photo frame with a photo of course.
- A drawing or coloring in (see below for some free coloring print pages)
A Gift Certificate makes a great last minute gift idea or addition to your purchased gift.
- Buy a voucher from her favourite store, get a magazine gift certificate, or one for a massage or facial.
- Print one of these Personalized Gift Certificates
Or buy an Amazon Gift Card
. You can post, print or email and your Mum can buy a book, dvd, gift, electronics - so much to choose from.
Mother's Day Coloring pages
The kids would love to color in one of these great Coloring Pages for a gift.
Mother's Day FlowersSend Flowers
for Mother's day if you don't live nearby. You can ring your local florist or there are plenty of online florists. My favorite way to give flowers is to ring the florist in the town my Mum lives and they are happy to organize a bouquet and I can pay over the phone.
You could plan ahead and make sure you have some flowers growing in your garden at this time of year. The kids will love picking a bunch of flowers for Mum and Grandma.
Free printable Mother's Day cards
The kids might like to make their own card. Here are some free printable mother's day cards (perfect, because they’re free!)
Have at least one special meal. (all three is good too!)
Breakfast in bed or at least on the deck with a great magazine.
Lunch – what about a picnic? Planning a picnic is best done prior to the day so you aren’t rushing around trying to get organized.
Dinner – go out to a nice restaurant or get take away from her favorite restaurant. Now this means Mum’s favorite restaurant, not KFC!
Just remember to make Mum feel special (and she might just repay the favor on Fathers Day)
