Can’t be with your mum this Mother’s Day? SHAME ON YOU!
Just kidding. We totally understand how hard it can be to organise a trip home when work and life commitments are standing in your way. We know you’re feeling a bit guilty right now, so we’ve come up with present ideas that will make up for your absence.
Ah, the classic gift when you don’t know what someone actually wants. She may say that she just wants a phone call and an update on how you’re going, but you can’t wrap that in a box. Take the stress out of finding a present and instead give Mum an assortment of gift cards for shops she loves and even that restaurant she’s been dying to try.
Mums (and humans in general) love receiving flowers. It’s a fact of life. You might not be with her but you can send her a beautiful bouquet. To make it even easier, we’ve created a list of our favourite floral delivery companies in Brisbane!
Face to Face
Skype is a godsend for long-distance relationships, virtual work meetings, catch-ups with overseas friends AND seeing your mum when you’re away for Mother’s Day! It may be through a screen, but seeing your gorgeous face is an awesome gift.
Send Mum a care package of things she’ll love! Not sure what to get her? How about a book she’ll love, a mug, a cosy blanket and some of her favourite teas or wines? It’s the perfect recipe for a relaxing day.
You know how we talked about gift cards? You can get NETFLIX GIFT CARDS and surprise Mum with a subscription! This is her gateway into a world of unlimited TV shows and movies, and she will be eternally grateful. The only trouble now will be deciding which show or movie to watch first!
Where is it written that your mum can’t visit you for Mother’s Day? Maybe she really needs to get away for a few days. Maybe she just needs a slight push to publicly acknowledge that you are the favourite child. Make a weekend out of it by showing your mum your favourite shops, restaurants and coffee places so you can make some awesome new memories together.
