5 ways to say “I love you” this Mothers’ Day

Tuesday 9th May 2017

As Mother's Day is fast approaching we begin to think about all the special ways to celebrate the one who has given us life, raised us, supported us and who loves us more than life itself!
But how do you properly thank the woman who has done all of this? We spoke to our friends at Personalised Favours for their five top tips in celebrating your Mum this Mother's Day 

1. Say a specific thank you

Saying thanks to your Mum is a lovely gesture, especially a heart felt personal thank you for the individual things she did to make your life easier and better. Think about your own personal family traditions, rituals and activities, and the role your Mum played in these.

You may want to write a list or handwritten note thanking your Mum for being the peace keeper, personal Uber driver, gourmet chef, home doctor and the list goes on! Keep it honest and from the heart and we can guarantee it’ll beat a box of chocolates this Mother’s Day.

2. Return the support

Many Mums let their dreams take a backseat so that we can fulfil our own. Now might be a good time to return the favour. Think of something your Mum has always wanted to do but never gotten around to because she was so busy putting everyone else first.

Whether her dream is to take a trip, start a hobby, write a book or simply have a day off – now is your chance to support your Mum as she’s always supported you and make this dream a reality. You could always go along for the ride as an added bonus.

3. Purchase mum a personalised gift

Instead of the standard Mother’s Day fare, purchase a present that is made especially for mum – one including personal details that will pull on her heart strings.

Personalised Favours offers a range of bespoke Mother’s Day gifts, customised to create individual items for every mum under the sun. To see her cry happy tears, present her with a ‘Together We Make A Family’ Puzzle Piece hanger, engraved with the names of your family members on each piece of the puzzle. Or play to her penchant for bubbles, with a Mother’s Day Raw Printed Wine Box, housing her favourite drop.

4. Recreate a happy experience

What’s a family experience or childhood memory that makes you smile every time you think about it? Chances are it probably makes Mum smile too. To really celebrate, take Mum back to a time or a place that holds happy memories for you all and make her day.

Pack a picnic and head back to your favourite spot, return to an old stomping ground, or if you’re geographically challenged from revisiting positive times past, why not recreate a favourite dish or improvise and set the scene in a new location.

5. Don’t just spoil mum on Mother’s Day

While Mother’s Day gives us the perfect opportunity to recognise everything our Mums have done for us, we shouldn’t be waiting for this annual event to acknowledge their overwhelming contribution to the people we’ve become.

Spend time with your mum all throughout the year. Make her a priority. Do nice things for her just because you love her and she deserves it. After all, you wouldn’t be here without her.
