Mum – she’s a very important and special person in everyone’s life. And with Mother’s Day 2019 just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about some unique ways to surprise her and make her day that little bit extra special. Mum, granny, mum-in-law - these are the wonderful women who deserve something that reminds them just how much you care. This year we’ve got some fresh new Mother’s Day ideas that are bound to surprise and delight!
Organise a family outing
If your mum is a stay-at-home mother, chances are she misses going away to just relax and have fun. Who says being a housewife and a mother is easy? It’s a 24/7 job so, she’ll be very excited to get that day off she probably never realised she needed. Take her to the beach, have a picnic in the park or enjoy a nature walk through the countryside – do the things she loves to do. She will appreciate that a lot more than you may expect.
A fancy dinner for two
If mum’s too busy to fit in a family outing, a fancy dinner for you and your mum is a great alternative. It doesn’t have to be out in a restaurant where it could potentially be crowded on Mother’s Day (not to mention expensive). Cook your mum’s favourite dish and set up a candlelight table for two by the garden. That’s one great Mother’s Day gift right there that’s unique and fun!
Flowers and chocolates
Yes! Everyone loves getting flowers and chocolates, and they are guaranteed to put a smile on mum’s face. No doubt about it – and if you think it’s not unique enough, how about giving her a bouquet of chocolate flowers? Flowers and chocolates in one - what’s not to love!
Treat her to a day spa
OK, so, we know mum’s tired and needs to relax sometimes, so a day spa outing is the perfect gift to rejuvenate her. Treat her to a whole-body massage with all those scented oils and candles around her so she drifts into a relaxing sleep. When she wakes up, complete the experience with an awesome pedicure. It’s a great gift to give and is guaranteed to lift her spirits.
Take her to the gym
If your mum loves working out but struggles to find the time to do it, this is a great way to get her back to what she loves doing. Take her to a gym where she can work up a sweat and burn off some unwanted calories. Lift some weights, take a spin class or just run on the treadmill with her and you’ll definitely make her Mother’s Day special.
A surprise dinner party
Mum will always appreciate it when you go the extra mile for her on Mother’s Day and a surprise dinner party with some of her closest relatives and friends will really make her day. Take her to your chosen venue blindfolded and remove it in front of her waiting guests, then give her a tribute toast before the dinner starts. Now, that is going to be one awesome dinner!
Book a show
If your mum loves shows, concerts or plays, book tickets for the two of you and let her enjoy the fabulous feel of city life. This is a great gift because not only will you surprise her on Mother’s Day, she’ll also have something to look forward to as she eagerly awaits the date of the event. You can even round it out by enjoying a nice glass of bubbly before the show and a late dinner afterwards.
Watch a movie together
If your mum prefers a quieter evening to celebrate Mother’s Day, a good movie in Gold Class with some nibbles and her favourite tipple will do the trick. Do you remember the last time your mum went to see a movie? If it’s been some time, this is a surprising idea that she will be thrilled about.
Let her sing her heart out
Another unique and fresh idea to surprise your mum on Mother’s Day is to take her to a karaoke bar and let her sing her heart out. Let her awaken her inner Olivia Newton-John while she belts out some classic songs. If she’s too shy to sing in a karaoke bar, set up a karaoke system at home and she will be unstoppable!
Cheer on her favourite team
If your mum is a sports fan, take her to cheer on her favourite team the next time they play at home (or better yet, take her to an away game and throw in the flights and accommodation). Whether it’s AFL, NRL, rugby, soccer, cricket, tennis or anything in-between, it’s something she will surely enjoy.
