Show mum some love this Mother’s Day

In these hectic days in which most of us work or attend school far from home and leave our children with their grandmothers, our moms, its time to show moms how much they mean to us by picking one of ten ways to spoil them this Mother’s Day – or maybe at month end when we visit them.

Remember, it is the thought behind it that counts more than how much it cost. So just show her your love without even spending more on it.

Ten simple ways to spoil mother:
* Make her a delicious breakfast in bed. No matter what menu you choose, make it extra special by setting the scene with some of mom’s favourite things, such her much-loved CD, a few flowers in a vase or a handmade card.

* Offer to offload her duties by doing most of the household chores, such as the laundry, cooking, ironing or house cleaning.

Prepare mum some hot lunch.

* Be a gracious hostess for lunch or dinner in honour of your mom and cook her favourite meal.

* Take mom to a show or concert she would enjoy.

* Indulge mom in something soft or silky like pyjamas or a cashmere wrap. You can never go wrong with these two fabrics. Get one, or both!

* Teach her online skills – whether it’s installing some apps on her phone like Skype or Viber that help you stay connected, or helping her set up a social media profile, Mom will appreciate being able to keep track of your life more easily. Help Mom use technology to bring you closer.

* Plan a mother-daughter/son weekend.

* Pack your bags and extend the celebration to a weekend away. It’s just long enough to really connect and have fun, and short enough to avoid any arguments .

* Take her car to get serviced. It can be a big gift like a set of new tyres, or a service check-up like an oil change, or even just a car wash. This gift tells mom you care about her safety on the road.

* Send her an airtime voucher, she will appreciate it.
