Mothers Day is creeping up on us wicked fast and its reaching that time when you have to make sure you have a gift sorted BEFORE the day. Not having a mad dash to the petrol station to get some shitty flowers for your mum 30 minutes before your due to meet up. So Ive made up a list of ideas for gifts for mum to make sure that you don’t have a last minute panic and come out looking like the best child.
YES I know I said have this gift well thought out before mothers day, well order a nice bouquet of flowers ahead of time and arrange to have it delivered to your mums house. This shows you had this organised in advance and you put some thought into it. Also make sure you have a heart felt card with the flowers of course.
A FRAMED PHOTO OF YOU AND HER
This one is defiantly for the people who absolutely loathe getting their photo taken and the last photo mum has of them is back when they where awkward teenagers with braces and a horrible hairstyle choice. Have a nice empty frame planned and inside it have a small note saying “mum and me photo 2018”. Come on you can pose for one photo with the woman that carried you for 9 months.
WINE OR ANY ALCOHOL SHE LIKES
Yeah I know I always say give wine or booze as a gift. But you have to admit its a pretty easy gift to give and it can be dolled up. From a nice box, pretty bow or even a personalised bottle label the world is your oyster to making a bottle look like you put some thought into it. Plus I think mum needs a glass of her fav alcohol and some time hogging the TV (most likely trying to find a movie with a shirtless hollywood hunk in it).
These can be pricey depending on where you go. Obviously if you can’t afford to get you mum a top of the line try GROUPON to see if you can get a decent spa vouchers for a decent price – just make sure you do a bit of research on the place your about to buy the voucher from. But this is a good gift for mum, as a little relaxing afternoon. This way she can choose a day to go by herself or you could set it up for mother and spawn date.
CANDLES AND SPA GOODS
If going to the spa isn’t your mums thing and she just likes to pamper herself at home why not stock her up with he essentials. You can buy candles pretty much anywhere so they are a pretty good start to add to the spa goods and why not take a look in places like LUSH. Take a look in Lush and you can buy mum a whole heap of goodies for her to enjoy; from bath bombs to face masks shed be sorted.
This is definitely the fancy version of breakfast in bed. Always a good idea to arrange for it to be on another day because of course everyone would be thinking to do it on Mothers Day. A good idea is maybe arrange a printout of the location you are going to and put it in a card for mum and tell her well go on a day that suits you best.
This one is a little obvious, really. Sleep wears a no brainer, nice and simple. Just don’t be a lazy ass and go get the cheapest ghetto sleepwear you can find that looks as if you stole it off a crazy homeless person. Get some good shit you know she will like and make sure its appropriate for the time of year. Dom get her summer PJs when its about to go into winter.
So here we go guys, a lot of ideas for what to get for mum for Mothers Day this year. NO EXCUSES TO GETTING HER NOTHING! So don’t be little assholes and not bother putting any thought into it at all. What am I getting for my mum for Mothers Day? Well since she doesn’t read this I have no issue sharing, Ive got her favourite bottle of wine with a custom Label I made myself (Graphic Design skills are handy) and a mug Ive made up to look like a Starbucks logo mug but changed to her name. Anyway I just put in an online order and received a email conformation, now Ill go wait out the front by the mailbox for the next few days.
