This year we celebrate the Mother’s day or also known in the UK like Mothering Sunday on 15th March. On this day we give honour to our moms, grandmothers and other mother figures in our family such as mother in law or step mother. By the tradition on this holiday everyone have to make a gift to their mother, usually a card or flower. There's no doubt that the best gift for every mother is to spent the day with her kids but here are some ideas how to surprise her, It doesn't need to buy a holiday on exotic island or expensive jewelry, she would be very happy to receive something made with love.
- On the first place - the traditional flower. But don't buy
bouquets which will die after some days. Get for her one flower in
beautiful pot, if you like crafting, you can buy ordinary pot and
decorate it the way your mom will like. This way you will bring personal
touch to the gift and it's great way to express your honour and love to
your mother. The best of it is that every time she look at this flower
she will think of you with tenderness.
Flowers in pots
- The second thing - a card. Don't slip out with printed one
from the book store. Do remember that when we were students we used to
made handmade card for our moms every year. Follow this tradition and
make one this year too, your mother will love it and keep it.
Handmade card for Mother's day
- Do something together - Help her with the spring cleaning
the day before the holiday - she will appreciate this. Celebrate in her
favourite restaurant or organise a picnic if the weather is appropriate
for this. It will be super fun and relaxing to go out and enjoy the day
with glass of wine and good food.
Go out and have fun
- Prepare for her homemade chocolates. If she is a sweet tooth
person, this would be the best present for her. There are so much
recipes for easy and heavenly delicious bonbons. I love to make Ferrero
Rocher. You need only four ingredients for them - dark chocolate,
Ferrero rocher wafer balls, milk and some nuts - hazelnuts or cashew are
my favourite. Melt 500gm of the chocolate and mix it with a tea cup of
hot milk, stir until the mix became homogeneous, add 1/2 cup of chopped
nuts and stir. Let it stay for 3-4 hour in the refrigerator. Fill the
ferrero spheres with spoon and make a ball from 2 halves. Melt 500 gm
dark chocolate and dip each ball in it after that roll in in chopped
nuts. That's all - easy and delicious. And your maid
will not mind washing all the dirty dishes if you give her to try some
of the chocolates, she is women too and probably celebrates the Mother's
Homemade Ferrero Rocher chocolates
How you can see it's not necessary to spend a fortune to make your mom feel special and loved on this day. Avoid the cliche of bouquets and make something for her with your own hand and all your love and honour to her.
