2. Give a Treat to a Spa
Honestly an all expense paid spa day is one heart warming gift you can give your mom. Knowing that she will be grateful to finally kick back and have her aching muscles get some relief is a satisfying way to make her see you really care about her health and wellbeing. Simply book her appointment and slip the date and time into her mail box or ask that the details be delivered to her directly, (because you know mom's can ignore their phones sometimes, except when they call to talk about your future that is..) well the key is to make sure that she gets the details of the spa date and let her know it is an offer she can't refuse. Don't even worry if she makes a fuss at first, in the end she will be happy and relaxed and that is exactly what you want.
3.Volunteer to Make the Meals for the Day
Finally, volunteer to switch up the roles for a day and let your mummy lounge and watch TV, sip juice, read a book or take a nap. Let her know you really appreciate all her effort and so you will like to serve her for a change. This will give her some good time to rest and engage in other relaxing activities. Surprise her with your own exceptional or not so exceptional cooking skills, in time she will be more than happy to watch you perform in the kitchen area amidst laughter and a lot of loving corrections. Oh, Mom's will be mom's, but we sure do love them every way.
Be Sensitive to Gifts That Could Be Read As Comments on Her Shortcomings.
Sometimes a gift is just a gift. And sometimes it can open up a big ol’ can of worms. Know your mom is trying to lose weight? Those gym shoes or membership, while thoughtful, could hit a sore spot; same with the cooking lessons if a regular family joke is that she can’t even boil water. Make it personal in a different way—personalized from you rather than for them. Create a piece of art, write a song, knit a scarf—you get the idea. Combine this with one (or more) of the above suggestions for an ultra-personalized gift.
