Mum’s the word

news: Mum’s the word

Whether it’s a sumptuous bowl of corn flakes lovingly served to your mum in bed, or a diamond encrusted bracelet (hey, we all have dreams), mums will treasure the special attention that says ‘thanks for everything, mum’. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking about how you’re going to pamper that special lady on May 1.

• Gardening gift basket with gloves, tools, seeds and scented lotion to help keep her hands soft and smooth after digging up the garden. This is a practical pressie, and mum will be reminded of you, and how much she’s appreciated, each time she looks out at the garden.

• Home spa treatment, at the end of a long tiring day, it’s great to settle into a warm, fragrant bath. Feeling pampered at home is easy with some favourite bubble bath, talcum powder and moisturiser. Add a few candles and you’ve got an instant escape! It’s no wonder that a gift basket of bath products always brings a smile.

• A lie in and breakfast in bed may sound like a cliché, but breakfast in bed for a busy mum is very pampering indeed. Add special touches like a fresh flower, small scented candle or pretty shells in a small bowl to the breakfast tray. Be sure to serve all her favourites, no dieting allowed on this day!
