We admit to being massively biased when we say a Spicers hamper will make the perfect gift this Mother’s Day, but if you were looking for an additional treat or are working on a zero budget this year below are some alternative gift ideas.
Ask any mother with children under 5 what she’d like this Mother’s Day and the answer is likely to be sleep! If logistics allow then Mother’s Day is the perfect day to grant that wish, could the children be taken out for a morning Spring hunt in the park? A lay-in with the guarantee of no interruptions, no noise or background hum of cartoons is magic!
If you’d prefer to give a sentimental gift to be treasured forever without spending a penny then the written word could be for you. Whether you’re eloquent enough to write a poem about what family means to you or a small child could be prompted with questions, such as what do you love about you’re Mummy/ favourite activities/ description, simple words can mean the world. A little decoration, or babies hand print along with the words will add an extra touch of love.
A beautiful bunch of flowers is often thought of as a classic Mother’s Day gift, to be a little more budget friendly and to make the gift super personal, could you grow your own flowers to gift? Another fun alternative is the gift of seeds, perhaps to be planted together or as a long lasting gift for families living further apart. For competitive families a simple packet of Sunflower seeds can prove to be beautiful and lots of fun comparing green fingered success! If you’re feeling super crafty how about making a ‘love grows here’ sign to accompany your flowers, or perhaps decorate an envelope for a personalised packet of seeds.
The gift of time is another guaranteed winner! Whether you spend the time treating your Mum by completing her least favourite chore or simply enjoying each others company sometimes the simple things in life can be the most enjoyable. If you’re looking to do something together, how about a home cinema night catching up on classic movies, re-visiting your favourite childhood country walks or prepare and share your favourite meal (or bottle of wine!) together.
Whatever you choose to do and whoever you share the day with, we’d like to wish everyone a very happy Mother’s Day for the 22nd March.
