HOW TO TREAT MOM AT HOME THIS MOTHER'S DAY
True happiness is seeing your mom smile, which is why we do our best to spoil them. Ask any mother what they would like for Mother’s Day and the answer is likely to contain some suggestion of either your time or your love. While these things cannot be purchased in a shop, they can be unwrapped at home…
Below are a few understated ways you can spoil your mother from the comfort of her very own home:
Allow her some beauty sleep
In most households (especially those with young children), mothers are the first ones up and the last ones to go to bed. This Mother’s Day, do mom a favour and let her sleep in.
Breakfast in bed
We’d all love to wake up to heart-shaped pancakes or a full-house breakfast. This Mother’s Day treat your mother like the queen that she is by serving her breakfast in bed.
Take over the household chores
No matter how you normally structure your household division of duties, today is Mom’s day off. That means that no broom, sponge, peg or spatula should see the touch of your mother’s grip for the next 24 hours.
Prepare a pamper party
Give your mother the much-needed TLC she deserves by creating a spa experience from home. Light some candles, run her a bubble bath and allow her to soak in peace, paint her nails and give her a back rub. Set up a yoga area and have a family yoga session, to help mom find her zen – anything that helps her relax.
Take the time to make a unique and sentimental gift for your mom. Whether it be a scrapbook of your most treasured memories or a jar filled with handwritten letters for your mom to read when she’s feeling happy, sad, or mad.
Don’t be afraid to take a whisk
Even if baking is not one of your top skills, try your hand at a red-velvet or a simple chocolate cake. The secret ingredient is always love, so your cake will be a sure winner either way.
At home photoshoot
Most mothers have hundreds of pictures of their children on their phones. Mother’s Day is the perfect time to let your mom take the spotlight and make her feel extra beautiful and loved by setting up an at-home photoshoot in her honour.
Sentimental scavenger hunt
Moms are generally sentimental when it comes to their children. Go through old family photos and pick your favourite ones, then hide them around the house, along with a note explaining the importance of the picture. Don’t forget to draw up a map to help your mom find the hidden pictures – just be sure to have a box of tissues nearby in case mom (or dad) gets a bit teary-eyed during their trip down memory lane
Hand her the keys to her dream home
Dad, we’re talking to you here. If your home is proving too small for the growing needs of your family, then it might be time to put up the “For Sale” sign and look for a new home in which to celebrate Mother’s Day 2020.
