A mother is without a doubt the most special being in our lives. The first contact we have with the world is through her. We learned everything from her. We mainly learn what it is to love her. Whether birth or adoptive, the meaning is the same! Life gains color when we have our mother by our side to accompany us through the moments. Nothing like a mother’s lap, is it?
Mother’s Day is coming and we’ve come up with some simple and good ideas for you to surprise yours! After all, this is the day to show all our love and affection for the person who brought us into the world and who takes care of us forever.
Check out the ideas and get inspired:
Breakfast in bed
Is there anything better than waking up and having breakfast in bed? Imagine: without even having to get up and being able to eat everything there in the comfort of your warm bed. Aside from being pampered by someone we care about. If it would be nice with us, it won’t be different with her. Surely your mother will be delighted with this.
But it doesn’t have to be anything very different or elaborate. Simple French bread and a coffee with milk will already win your mother’s heart! If she has cheese and a turkey breast then she will find it delicious! Just prepare the tray and take it away.
What counts in this is much more the fact that you are willing to wake up earlier than her and prepare everything than you spend to buy several different things and do fancy things.
What we really like is to feel taken care of. Be considerate and take the opportunity to put out all that beautiful feeling you have inside!
Ah, but of course if you want to do your best with your food, add a flower to decorate and a note, there’s no doubt that she’ll like it! But remember: What matters is the intention.
Messages in the mirror
Your mom will definitely brush her teeth in the morning. Enjoy and leave a message for her on the bathroom mirror! A simple “Good morning! Happy Mothers Day! Love you! ” will make her happy. Even more so if you write something that means to you. Use creativity and heart. Be true! She deserves it right?
Another idea is to stick the tickets in a heart shape, it’s so cute!
You bet, this simple act will brighten up your mother’s day. That way she will start the day really happy, as she deserves. Sometimes life is so busy and we do so many things that we end up forgetting that it’s these simpler and simpler things that make the difference. She’s already given you so much for a lifetime! Take the opportunity to thank you.
Special lunch or dinner
Use your cooking skills, or at least take a risk! Cooking is an act of love because you prepare food to take care of someone else. Those who cook put all their energy, their goodwill, and generosity there. It’s really special to cook for someone!
If you are not very skilled, you can use recipes in books or on the internet. Today there is no shortage of different recipe options for all tastes. Or maybe you can take that tip from someone you know who knows how to cook. If you want to get it right without a mistake and want something easy to make, bet on pasta with tomato sauce plus wine to accompany and that’s it! Is perfect!
Still, if you don’t have time to prepare food, it’s worth taking her out to a restaurant she likes!
Not to mention that later you will eat together, in each other’s company. One more gift!
Want something prettier than flowers? I doubt your mother won’t like to win! And there are for all tastes and budgets! You can go to a specialized florist or go to the supermarket to buy.
It is worth giving arrangements, loose flowers, and flowers planted in vases. A violet vase, for example, costs around R$ 2.99. Remember that what we suggest is that you invest in affection and intention. But of course, if you can and can afford to spend more, you can make a beautiful bouquet of lilies, for example.
In addition to giving your mother a gift, if you live with her it’s also nice to decorate the house with flowers! It will bring life and joy to the environment, in addition to making everything more beautiful.
This idea is valid for those who live with their mother and do not pay anyone to clean their house every day. Fixing the house for her can be a great way to please. No need to clean, but organizing things will fill your mother with satisfaction. And she will be able to be carefree, calm, and enjoy the day. Wash those boring dishes that no one wants to wash, take out the trash, make the beds and wipe them down. These are things that make the difference. Everyone likes to have an organized home.
Photos of special moments hanging
Remembering experiences is so nice! Even more when these moments were with special people that we love! A great idea is to choose some old photos and hang them on nylon string or string with wooden pegs. It’s a charm! Just choose a place in the house where you can tie the wire at two ends and hang the photos. Or, tape the ends of the wire with masking tape. It will look like a “picture clothesline”. You can hang the images in order of time, from the oldest to the most current as if it were a retrospective.
These are simple things that warm our hearts and renew our hopes in life. There is no gift more beautiful than love and attention. All the tips we show are not expensive and are easy to do. It is often not an expensive gift that thrills the recipient. But rather those that are made by ourselves, which have our hand, our time and dedication involved. In this way, giving gifts takes on a new meaning.
Enjoy this day with your mother and show how you feel for her!
Lopes wishes you a Happy Mother’s Day!
