“A grandma is warm hugs and sweet memories. She remembers all of your accomplishments and forgets all of your mistakes”. Indeed, grandmothers have a special place in all our hearts. Grandma cooks the best food, gives the warmest hugs and of course, spoils us rotten at every opportunity she gets. As such, it only makes sense that we return the favour by absolutely spoiling her this Mother’s Day too. Here are our top 6 Mother’s Day gift ideas that are sure to show grandma how much you love and care for her this year.
1. Book A Spa Date
If there is one thing any and every grandma on the planet deserves, it is to be pampered on Mother’s Day. The best gift of peace and relaxation you can spoil your grandma silly with is a full day booked at your local spa or massage parlour. Be sure to include yourself as well in order to spend some quality time with your favourite lady!
Some of the things we recommend including in your booking are a full body massage, facial and manicure that will truly let your grandma unwind and relax. We highly recommend ending the day with a delicious high-tea lunch at a nice cafe or restaurant to complete the experience.
2. Get Personal With A Personalised Gift
There are very few gifts more heartwarming to receive than an item that has been personalised to match the gift’s recipient. Personalised gifts provide added sentimental value as well as an unspoken understanding that the person who’s given this particular present knows you intimately and loves you unconditionally.
Be sure to gift grandma something that she’s likely to use or admire on a daily basis, like a personalised sewing kit or an engraved photo frame housing a beloved shared memory. A personalised gift is best received if the item being personalised is also of great significance to the gift’s intended recipient.
3. The Gift Of An Online Course Or Voucher
For those who have incredibly tech-savvy grandmas who are eager to expand their horizons at the beginning of every day, the perfect gift would very well come in the form of an online course or class. There are hundreds of online classes that you can book online in 2022, ranging from embroidery and crochet, to macaron making and pizza masterclasses.
If your grandma isn’t the biggest fan of the online world, you could also purchase vouchers or tickets to a hands-on class that she is certain to enjoy, like pottery. Options will naturally differ depending on what your grandma’s interests and hobbies may be, so be sure to find an activity that is bound to have her feeling enriched and filled with joy.
4. A Gorgeous Bouquet Of Flowers
Another gift that you can almost never go wrong with is a bouquet of colourful and exquisite flowers. There are a myriad of flower delivery services available regardless of where you or your grandma may be located, so be sure to do some window shopping online in order to find something that truly speaks to your heart. Be sure to check order deadlines in order to ensure that your flowers arrive in time (Mother’s Day is an incredibly busy period for most florists!).
Alternatively, if you have a garden of your own, why not consider making your own floral bouquet? Try to use native or drought-tolerant flora wherever possible, as they are long-lasting and look fabulous when placed in a lovely mason jar decorated with ribbon or rope. Be sure to also add a handmade card expressing your love and appreciation for everything your grandma has done for you!
5. Plan An Outdoor Activity
For any grandma that loves being active, planning an outdoor activity can be an amazing way to create shared memories that will last a lifetime. There are a wide variety of options when it comes to outdoor activities, some of which include a day at the beach, a picnic at your local park, a fishing trip on a rented boat, or even a visit to a local zoo or animal sanctuary.
Most importantly, be sure to pick an activity that won’t be too taxing or tiring on grandma. The last thing you want is for her to feel over-exerted and unable to enjoy the fun activity or activities that you have planned for the day.
6. Host A Beautiful Brunch
Last but not least, no Mother’s Day celebration is complete without a beautiful brunch or luncheon. Brunch is also the perfect event for a multi-generational celebration, so be sure to invite your own mum, aunts, cousins and anyone else in the family who may be a momma! Don’t forget to include a variety of different finger foods, drinks, and refreshments that everyone can enjoy. Remember to also whip out your phone or camera to snap some memories that will undoubtedly be cherished for decades to come.
With a little creative thinking, planning, and input from the rest of your family, you can make sure that Mother’s Day 2022 is the best one your grandma and all the other special ladies in your family has ever had! Remember too, that it doesn’t matter how small or big your gift is – it’s the thought and effort that counts. Love, care, and appreciation is priceless!
