Ideas for your special someone this Mother’s Day
We’ve got some ideas for your special someone this Mother’s Day!
For those special mum figures out there who don’t need stuff! They’d instead like nothing more than time with you, a thoughtful gesture or an experience to remember!
Home made high tea
Easily create a special setting by taking the indoors, out! Use a table, the couch or chairs, some cushions, a blanket and a few bits hung above to set the scene. Visit a second hand shop for unique servewear like silver platters, tea cups and glass vases to add a bit of drama. Top it off with some of their favourite nibbles cut into bite sized pieces and a drink of choice, voila!
Sponsor an endangered animal
If your person is a big animal lover, they may love the idea of sponsoring a furry friend. WWF has a range of endangered animals you can help protect to save their species from extinction. There are a number of animal sanctuaries through out the world and within NZ to choose from.
Chuffed Gift Experience
Choose an experience package that has a variety of activities to suit your person/mum. There’s something to suit everyone’s taste and you don’t have to worry about picking the ‘right’ option, you grab the chuffed gift and they can choose the experience they’d like the best. You may even get to join in!
Hand picked bunch with handmade paper
There’s really not much to it! Go for a walk around and find a variety of textures and colours from nature. These can be flowers, foliage or even sticks, feathers and flax! A mismatch of colours and textures creates a unique bunch that looks personalised and thoughtful. Wrap it up in plain paper that has hand written messages on it, this gift would go great with breaky!
Whether they’re a gardener or not, it can be really fun to watch seeds grow without knowing what will appear! You can choose a favourite flower, vegetables or even fruit trees. Place each in a wee paper bag with a thoughtful note written on it, perhaps even give a hint of what it could turn into! We bet they’ll be excited to see it sprout and then to find out what it turns into!
For all you Mum’s/Guardians/Mama/Whaea out there – You are amazing, you are loved, you are valued, and the world wouldn’t be the same without you!
Have a love-filled Mothers Day!
