Beautiful Hand Made Cards
If 18th March is getting you nervous as you haven’t planned anything for Mother’s Day….fret not..we have Top 5 ideas that are bound to Surprise your Mother..
At #1 on the Top of the list is a Spa Day..
Cliche as it sounds.. Mum’s love a day out at the SPA..
Any excuse for some pampering and what’s so great about Spa Vouchers is that you can surprise Mummy Dearest with the Voucher on Mother’s Day and take a day off in the next few months to spend some “Quality” time with her.
Now if you are a bloke (and the idea going of spending a day with your mum in a Spa makes you cringe.. ) you can choose to surprise her with two vouchers which she can enjoy with her friend … She’ll be telling the world about the wonderful gift her son has given her!
And if SPA-Land is new to you and you are still looking for which Spa you’d wish to go to we’d recommend the Hillmotts Spa for those in and around London amongst many others..
Now if you are looking for something a bit more tangible.. we’d recommend you get her a thoughtful gift she would love. We love the idea of Scooped.. your very own NewsPaper which can be customised.
#2Lots of cool gift ideas from Pearls, to Shamballa Style Necklaces, to Pashmina Shawls, to Quirky Knives and more.. with a new deal everyday on a discount of more than 50%, you are sure to stretch your pound and not run out of idea…. find something you like here
#3:Surprise her with a meal in some place different..
If you have acquired some good culinary skills, we’d say go ahead and make some magic..But if you are not that skilled in the cooking department, find a nice place for a meal together. It doesn’t have to be a high end restaurant but could be new place that she hasn’t been to. Find out what type of cuisine she’d like to try.Mum’s tend to keep going to the places they’ve known.. it’s time to take them exploring for the different..
We’ve found this wonderful Vegetarian Restaurant in London – in fact in the heart of Covent Garden called the Wild Food Cafe. It not only serves delicious food, but they use organic and high quality food that is great for health and vitality.. definitely up our street as they have a Special Mother’s Day offer too! If you have memories of your Mum saying ‘eat your veggies” a place like this is something she might fancy.
#4 Preserve fond memories..
Invest in a piece of Art that is designed just for you and your mum or your entire family.. What once cost thousands of pounds can now be in less than £50.. a truly exquisite way to cherish a families portrait through DocoArt.
If you like the sounds of this, book a discount voucher and on Mother’s Day get your Mother to the website and allow her to pick what she’d like ( a great way for her to be involved)..she can choose and you can book this for a fraction of a cost here.
And for those who don’t have any recent photos with your Mum here’s an excellent opportunity to get a high quality professional photo for only £16 at the London based – Angel Studios .What’s more , it comes with a glamour experience for two including champagne , make up and getting your hair done up! It’s super cool experience !
#5 Mother’s treasure hand made cards..and you are never too old to make one ! .. so pour out your creativity on a paper and make her go ‘AWWW’.. you can add in a note stating.. “It has been a while since I made you one of these.. but I wanted you to know that I Love you Mum”…. a definite winner!!
If not go buy her some flowers (or pick some Daisies if you can find any in your neigbourhood )…but what ever you do, make sure you let your Mum know that she is special.. Life is short and there is nothing more rewarding than to make someone who gave YOU the gift of life a doze of well deserved ‘Mothers Day Loving!’
Wishing you a Happy Mothers Day 2012!!
