With Mother’s Day around the corner, you might be wondering how make your mom feel special without breaking the bank. 

Here are a few tips

1.       Most moms would truly appreciate a lie in, so if possible, let her sleep later than usual, and then when she is well rested, wake her up with a delicious breakfast in bed. She will love the extra sleep time and enjoy a meal she did not have to cook herself. Make sure you have cleaned up the mess in the kitchen though

2.       If possible pick some flowers from the garden to brighten up her day or get creative and make some flowers using coloured paper, there are many craft ideas on pinterest.

3.       Spend time making a card for her, handmade cards are so much more special than store bought cards 

4.       Treat your mom to a home spa experience, let her grab her favourite book a hot cup of tea or coffee and treat her to a foot massage and foot soak.  While she enjoys the foot soak you could gently massage her neck & shoulders to release any tension. Diffuse a little essential oil to create a relaxing atmosphere. You could also apply a hair treatment and face mask to complete the experience. Once the hair treatment is done brush out and detangle mom’s hair (she is always doing that for you) using Tangle Teezer. After her relaxing foot soak offer to do a mani or pedicure.  Try Citrusway’s foot care products, Earthsap’s Organic Foot care products; Skin Oil From Africa’s range of Oils, Bramley’s Range of Tissue Oils, SOil’s range of organic essential oils, SKN Logic’s Charcoal Detox masque, Lamelle’s Serra Lipid Recovery Mask, HASK’s Argan Oil Repairing range, Naturally Africa’s Hair & Scalp Oil, Label M Professional Hair Care masks, Pure Royal’s Hair Mayonnaise, Two Ocean’s Argan Intense Conditioning Mask, Morlage & York’s Hand & Nail Care, Mavala’srange of professional nail, hand & face products 

5.       Look out for discounted deals and whisk her off to a salon or spa for a mother and daughter pamper day 

6.       Spend some quality time with your mom, ask her questions about her youth, ask her about her mom, take time to listen to her stories, perhaps write them down in a journal

7.       If you are creative decorate a glass jar and write down, on colourful strips of paper, as many reasons as you can about why you love your mom. 

8.       If you like to bake, bake some delicious treats for afternoon tea and let your mom relax or nap for the afternoon. Try SOiL’s relax remedy roller

9.       Do your best to ensure that Mother’s day is a no squabbling day 

10.   Relaxing is what mom’s need the most, arrange a movie night at home, select some of your mom’s favourite movies and get comfy on the couch in your pjs and gowns, cuddle up with some blankets and enjoy some delicious treats
