Alternative Treats For Her Special Day
With Mother’s Day rapidly approaching, it’s easy to fall into a repetitive rut. We all know the typical gifts from flowers and chocolates to a soppy card but let’s face it, chocolates aren’t very memorable and even the most beautiful of flowers have a limited lifespan. Why not do something extra special this year, after all, mom works hard all year and she deserves a day just for her. Check out our favorite gifts for mom this mother’s day that will have you in the good books right up until next year!
A Pampering Spa Day
What better way to say “You’re appreciated” than with a blissful, relaxing spa day for two? Look early and shop around for the best deals, at this time of the year there are often great bargains to be had at your local spas and pamper boutiques. Just imagine, quality time with mom spent leisurely floating around a mosaic tiled swimming pool, heading for a relaxing hot stone massage after and finishing up with a session in the outdoor hot tub, it’s the stuff dreams are made of! Round up a perfect day for the two of you with a light dinner and you’ve got a winning combo!

A Goodies Hamper
What mom wouldn’t want a hamper filled with all her favorites things? Give your hamper a theme from food to skincare or even makeup.

Range your goodies from small tidbits and token presents to larger gifts to give the most variety. Some great ideas include her favorite specialty chocolates, a moisturizing serum, her favorite movie on DVD and a manicure set.
Nothing says you care more than a present filled with memories. If you’re looking for something extra special this year, try compiling your own photo book packed with all of your favorite adventures together. Don’t forget to add personalized captions and even tickets from that phenomenal concert you both went to or even the receipt from the fancy restaurant all the family went to for your last birthday. If you’re feeling high tech, why not complete the book with a collage cover or even a disc in the back with the digital versions of the photos. Something to look back on for years to come and you can always add new memories at a later date.
Bake A Cake
Finally, no celebration would be complete without a cake! If you’re a dab hand in the kitchen, bake mom a decadently rich cake to show how much you care. Even if you’re not the domestic Goddess you hoped you would become, there are always ways to cheat a little without compromising on taste or effort. Try a packet mix for the cake base and finish off with some simple whipped cream and fresh berries. Something everyone can share and mom will certainly appreciate the effort you made for her. Add your cake to a mixture of other treats and goodies, set the table and pour some tea and you’ve got your very own homemade high tea experience for half the price!
