Bouquet? If she has pets or tiny humans around frequently – maybe not such a great idea.
Chocolate? Unless it’s from that specialty place that she said she liked you’re probably not impressing her much.
Bath stuff? You mean the I-literally-couldn’t-think-of-anything-else-gift?
Candles? Come on guys.
It can be hard to come up with a gift for Mother’s Day. Instead of gifting something that isn’t likely to last a week, why not give her something that she really wants, that she could still be enjoying next Mother’s Day? I’m not talking about a two-story addition on her house or redoing the hardwood on the main floor – you do have options that won’t break the bank. Take a look.
- Hanging Baskets; The Original ‘Vertical’ Gardening
‘Vertical gardening’ is not a new trend, city gardening fans should take note of the humble hanging basket. For a modern twist fill the basket with a single variety of dense flowers with bushy foliage, trailing or semi-trailing plants tend to work best. If you’re not green fingered but you want to surprise Mom with some flowers that will last all spring, hanging baskets are your answer.
- A Warm Welcome
Welcome her home to a newly painted front door (Note: get her input on colour choice. Trust me.) Exterior wood work should be painted every 10 years or so to keep it in good condition and protected from the elements. With the worst of the weather behind us, spring is the perfect time to repair and tidy up exterior wood, and what better place to start than with the door that greets her every day?
If the door finish is past its best and a quick polish won’t bring it back to life, how about some new hardware which is in keeping with the style of the house.
- Top Off the Kitchen
You don’t need to go all out and buy a whole new kitchen suite; by replacing the work top, cabinet doors or simply the door knobs she’ll think she’s in a whole new kitchen, but for a fraction of the price.
She gave you life. You gave her sleepless nights, gray hairs, and… a coffee cup?
You can do better.
