A traditional gift that always goes well. Many stores and garden centers stock great flowers at this time of year. So why not get a beautiful bouquet with a thoughtful note. Or beautiful plants for his home or garden.
If your mom loves jewelry, a necklace, bracelet, or earrings will be appreciated. You can go further and personalize them with your name or meaningful words.
Wellness days at the spa/salon
You can organize a wellness day at a spa or salon and give him the opportunity to relax with a good massage, manicure, pedicure or facial treatment. An alternative is to buy a luxurious beauty box with things like salon products, makeup, and creams to use at home.
For theater lovers, there is no need to look far to find a good stage performance. The North East has some great venues including the Tyne Theater & Opera House, Newcastle Theater Royal and Sunderland Empire Theatre. See what they have to offer and buy tickets. Likewise, for any movie buffs, movie tickets will do.
You can create a basket full of things she likes – wine, chocolate, spa products, perfume, tea, coffee. Some stores offer special baskets for the occasion. For example, Tesco offers £5 bespoke hampers, which come with ribbon, gift card, sugar paper and packaging, which can be filled with anything you want. There are also “breakfast in bed” baskets that do the trick.
His favorite drink
A bottle of champagne, vodka, gin, Prosecco or whatever she likes. You can pair it with chocolates or other treats.
Choose a cute family photo and create a personalized puzzle for your mom. A quick internet search will find a number of companies that offer this.
Family photo session
Invite the whole family to participate in a photo shoot. Find a photographer or photo studio in your area and get everyone together for a family portrait. It’s something she can treasure for years to come.
make a scrapbook
Create a scrapbook with memories from years past, including photos of your childhood and grandchildren. Another personal gift that will hit the mark.
Plan a weekend getaway
You can always make it a full Mother’s Day weekend and book a trip to a city she’s never been to or a nice country bed and breakfast.
Getting a gift card means your mom can buy whatever she wants. Choose her favorite clothing store, jewelry store, or any other place she would like to shop.
A good meal
Treat your mom to a nice meal at her favorite restaurant or somewhere she’s always wanted to try. However, you may need to book quickly as Mother’s Day is not far away.
