Mother’s Day is the perfect time of the year to show your mother that you are grateful for everything she’s done. As time passes we tend to get so busy with life that we often take our mothers for granted and make little time for them – so let’s make sure to remind them how important they are.
Here are some tips that will help you treat your mother on her special day!
Photo album of memories
Everyone likes going through old photographs, but with the digital era more often than not pictures are stored in pen drives that end up forgotten in a drawer, so why not make a photo album? Go through pictures that mean something to you and your mother, funny memories and achievements, make a timeline of her life as a mother, and put everything in a tangible photo album. Reminding her what a great mother she’s been and what an excellent job she’s done at bringing you and your siblings up will definitely make her feel special.
Cook for her
We’ve asked inside the office, and no one can remember the number of times their mothers have cooked for them, can you? Someone estimated 21,600 meals – that is a lot of cooking. You can therefore now repay the favour by letting her watch her favourite tv show while you do all the cooking, setting up the table and then, of course, cleaning the dishes.
Surprise her with a trip
Everyone loves surprises but an unexpected trip is probably one of the best surprises one can receive. Set a budget and then see how feasible it is. You don’t need to go far to impress, even just a weekend break to Gozo is enough. Spending some quality time with your mother, away from stress and chores is excellent bonding time that you will both treasure.

Take her out for a meal
Treat your mother to a filling breakfast, or lunch with a view, or simply a wine bar for dinner – there are 809 restaurants and 49 wine bars listed on Yellow, you will surely find a place that suits your needs!
All that matters is that you are are eating food that you love, in good company and don’t need to hassle over cooking it and cleaning the pots and pans. No doubts your mother will love that!
Buy her a gift
It’s always exciting unwrapping a present, so here’s your opportunity to find out what your mother really wants and present it to her as a gift. Slightly materialistic but definitely a hit, especially if you find out what she would like to receive.
Surprise her with a bouquet
It may sound very cliche, but flowers are always gladly appreciated, and they make the house look and smell nicer. Sometimes it’s the little things that make everyone feel special.
If not a bouquet, you can also opt for a plant – they last longer and can be a constant reminder of the special day.
