Fortunate Finds... Mother's Day

Mother's Day could be classed as another commercialised example that takes places once a year, but then I do think that it is important to display your admiration for the female lady who you often turn to in life.


It doesn't have to be your birth mum. Your nan, auntie, cousin or a non-relative may be the one that you want to reward for all that they do.


Now it comes to the uncertainty of what to get as a sign of thanks... Starting the day by serving a traditional breakfast (or her favourite cereal, porridge, toast with a jarred topping) in bed has been known to go down a treat, as has a hot cup of tea or coffee. You could even win extra points for presenting it in her favourite mug - or a brand new one, like this personalised design from Not On The High Street. I also came across a John Lewis duck tray that would appear impressive with all these things on it.
   
Many mum's regularly say "it's the little things that count" and although this is right, a bunch of carnations or a box of Lindor chocolates are two gifts that mine wouldn't turn down.

Whichever approach you use to celebrate the existence of the person you have in mind overspending doesn't have to come into it. I've found that from January to December Lidl's stock a sublime range of bouquets, (or there is the option of a vase with an artificial bunch inside that are not seen as tacky), and with Easter next month a lot of the big supermarkets like Asda have cut-prices on their chocolate eggs. 

Also speaking of sweet tooth presents, old-fashioned confectionery shops will provide with you with what you need. Until not long ago it was unbeknown to me that there are many places that offer Cream Teas at really affordable prices, such as Dobbies. Then again, you could bake or buy your own scones, jam and cream to hold a little party on the table at home.

Going to the cinema is a satisfying outing whenever, but if you do go on this Sunday 6th of March the film that you book to see will mean something extra to you in the future when you look back. I am aiming to go and watch The Choice. Mum and I really like the author Nicholas Sparks, who's book this film is based on.

If you can't actually be there in person with the other human being gift cards such as love2shop vouchers are ideal, especially this one as there are a large variety of places where you can spend them at.

Just do NOT forget the card, and one that has a sincere message inside.
