A day to celebrate the special ladies in our lives that in some shape or form take on the role of mothers, fulfilling that maternal bond.
In the midst of a pandemic, the celebration of many special occasions have been affected. However whether your mother, or mother figure is near or far there are many ways to make the mother's in your life feel loved & appreciated. It doesn't have to break the bank either. In fact, gifting from the heart can do a much better job at showing your gratitude. It's not to say you shouldn't gift that bracelet she's been eyeing up, but why not consider some some DIY ideas. Here's a few of our favourites:
If you can't be there in person, take it old school and pull out a pen and paper. It takes a lot of intentional effort to write a letter, and that emotion is sent along with the letter which is what sets it apart.
Celebrating mom can be an unforgettable event without spending a fortune. Get crafty on Pinterest, create a personalised gift basket, a picture collage or even recreate your favourite memory with her.
Flowers & chocolate are lovely, however a break from the daily grind and the gift of time is sometimes just what your mom needs. Care for her as she's done for you. Make her breakfasts in bed, her favourite dinner, do her laundry, clean the house and if travel doesn't permit, have the services brought to her door.
It's the extra effort and thought making the mother in your life feel acknowledged, loved and appreciated.
"A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take."
