Mother’s Day

Why do we celebrate Mother’s Day all around the world? Why not! We celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and New Year’s day, so why not the people who gave birth to us. They not only bring you up as best they can, but attempt to bring their granchildren up too. They are multi-tasking super women. Child birth is not just a miracle of life, it’s damn hard work. The days running upto the birth are harder than the birth at times. All mothers have different stories to tell but they all have one thing in common…they will all tell you: “You will understand when you become a mother yourself”. So read on for ideas on how to spoil your mothers…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mothers day ideas

  • Tell your mother you want to treat her to a make over at her local beauty salon, make sure she gets the look she wants, remember it’s not about you, it’s her day and make sure you treat her like a Queen!
  • After getting pampered (possibly even a manicure/pedicure) you suggest to go and have some lunch or a coffee at a local cafe/restrauant. But what she doesn’t know is that you’ve already planned the surprise already and spoken with the waiters/staff.
  • You seat her at a table that she doesn’t know has been reserved for you, then you notice a card on the table which reads ‘Reserved for VIP’. When she tries to change tables, the staff tell her there isn’t a problem.
  • Then a small bunch of flowers in a vase arrives at the table with a hidden mother’s day note card (she will open this card later) and you mention that you noticed there are only flowers on your table and that the Very Important Person whoever is coming will be very impressed with the service here and you have a giggle at how it seems like you are the VIPs.
  • You then order the most boring and cheapest cupcake/muffin on the menu, but when it arrives it comes in the form of a huge cake with candles and sparklers and a song ‘Celine Dion-Because I love you’ plays in the background. You say there must be a mistake and that you only ordered a cupcake, before you get it sorted, they cut the cake and share it out between you.
  • The next surprise is a group of fake paparazzi, they come from nowhere and take your photos (make sure you get her to smile-tell her “why not play along with them to get them to go away”) They then ask for your mother’s autograph. (What she doesn’t know is the autograph will be part of the last surprise later)
  • After you eat some cake, drink some tea of coffee and laugh about how weird the day has been…you notice a courier man come with his bike helmet on and ask her to accept a package and sign for it…he says her name so she is in shock at this point and starts picking up on the surprise…
  • At this point she opens the package and you say “Surprise!!! Happy Mother’s Day” you let her know she has been the VIP the whole day. She opens the package and sees the photo that was taken before by the paparazzi printed and put in a frame with her autograph on the back with all her children and grangchildren’s names on it with the words ‘Because you loved me’. Then you pass her the little note card hidden in the flowers and when she opens it…she reads the lyrics from the song ‘Because you love me’…then you’ll see those proud, loving, happy tears roll down her cheeks of pure fullfillment of being a mother and she will cherish the gift all her life and then it can be a perfect keepsake for generations to come. Happy Mother Day

 

 

 

Because you love me

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right

For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful, baby

You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through
Through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me, ooh, baby

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach

You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love, I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me

Maybe, I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because
I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me, the tender wind that carried me
The light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

 I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

Mother’s Day gift ideas

1. A wrist watch with a note saying ‘Mothers are timeless’ or ‘you can count on me’…’I’ve had the time of my life’

2. Book a photographer to come to a family picnic or go to a photo studio and have them take a lovely photo of your mother then surprise her like this…take your mother out around some museums or art galleries and have her suddenly find her own photo up on the wall like an art piece. What a lovely surprise!!! You could also name the art work ‘Momateressa’ or ‘Momalisa’ or you can also hang a price tag next to it reading ‘sold out’ or ‘Priceless’ or even ‘One in a million’ and include a description like ‘rare piece found only amongst the happiest of families’

3. Treat your mother to workshops/day courses that will inspire her as she inspired you. The workshop/course will allow her to also have time alone and give her the deserved space she needs once in a while. Or you can set up a course/workshop to go with her. Like a mother&daughter florist course…A mother&son wine tasting course…A water colouring session for a weekend away with your father…

4. DIY handmade craft book made by her children or granchildren if it’s a gift for their grandmother…a scrap book of previously collected recycled or nature materials found in parks etc. Anything is possible even old cuttings from bits of paper or magazines etc

5. Gift basket filled with her favourite items. The basket could be a spa basket full of things to help her pamper herself like foot cream or epsom salts, pure essential oils which will help her feel calm like lavendar or cool mint oils to help her feel energized and fresh. Homemade lip scrubs, or body sugar scrubs made from pure virgin olive oil, brown sugar and flower petals. And who could resist a basket full of her favourite chocolates or fruit and nuts…YUM!!! An eye mask would be appreciated, even a cooling eye mask would be great. To compliment that…a hot water bottle with a fuzzy fluffy cover on it would make her feel warm and comforted by you

7. Custom made dolls which look like the children or grandchildren are a lovely gift idea for a mother who wants nothing more than to keep the child’s youthfulness for as long as possible, to stop time.  As the children grow up so fast, it’s hard to watch them leave the nest. These dolls can look so life like that it is like a captured photograph. Both boys and girl dolls are available to customize with selected eyes, hair, clothes as well as shoes and hats

9. For a sporty mother a pair of these comfotable, flexible floor work training shoes are not just absolutely to die for, but are very practical too. They are not like any other shoes and are so light that you almost forget you have them on, yet they support the foot more than your ordinary yoga socks

10. Our all time most favourite gift idea for all those mothers out there no matter what age or type is this very special bracelet. Injected in the black bead is mud taken from the Dead Sea. In the white beads, injected water from the top of Mount Everest. From the highest and lowest points on earth, this meaningful bracelet gives anyone who wears it a reminder of balance…so whether you’re feeling on top of the world or down on your luck, these Lokai bracelets remind you to stay humble, hopeful and to keep moving forward. You have to find your balance in life. Plus there is a big bonus when you purhcase one, 10% of profits go to charity to help nature conservations and this is just a little helping hand in protecting our environment

11. A great find is this gift that we ladies would all love and use for not just bath time but for any excuse to be romantic and pretend we’re in space. Far far away, somewhere to lose ourselves. Or some might say to find ourselves. Whatever the excuse to use this portable planitarium we are sure she’ll be speechless. You might write a note like ‘I love you to the moon and back Mom’ or ‘You are my star’… ‘when I miss you and need you, all I have to do is find the North Star and I’ll be at your side again’… ‘You are my guiding star, my shining star’… ‘You shine brighter than all the stars in space’
