Love That Mum - 6 ways to make Mum feel special without breaking the piggy bank.
27th Apr, 2016
With Mother’s Day just around the corner it’s time to start thinking about ways to spoil our Mums. She spends so much time caring for us that it doesn’t matter how old we are, it’s always important to not just tell her how great she is but to show her! We’ve come up with a few ways you can show how much you love her or inspire your little ones to show their love without breaking the piggy bank.
Before you head off for your Mother’s day outing, pop the kettle on and treat Mum to a fresh coffee or tea that she hasn’t had to make. If you want to be extra sneaky, put it into a travel mug and get the kids to have it ready and waiting for her in the cup holder.
Another way to make Mum feel special is a little bunch of flowers on the steering wheel. There are lots of beautiful autumn flowers around so have a look in your garden and pick a bunch yourself. She’ll get a lovely surprise when she gets behind the wheel!
Grab a sponge and a bucket, gather up the family and give Mum’s car a bath. She’ll be so impressed with her sparkling wheels because there’s nothing better than hopping into a clean car. If you’re feeling very industrious give it a vacuum too. You can read our maintenance tips to make sure her car is shiny and cared for in the best way.
Give Mum’s car a mini service. Check oil levels and washer fluids so that Mum’s car is running at its best. If you’re not sure what you’re looking at when you pop the bonnet (or in the example here, can’t reach!) ask Dad to help you! It’s a good idea to check her service book to see if her car is due for a full service. If it is, why not help Mum book a service so she has one less thing to worry about.
Everyone loves a family picnic so put together a basket of Mum’s favourite foods, pack up the car and head to your local park.
Everyone’s Mum loves looking back at how cute her kids were! So put one of your baby photos featuring you and her in her sun visor, but don’t tell her! Next time she pulls it down she’ll get a lovely surprise that will make her smile.
