Mother is the highest emotion that anyone can share in their life. Despite how good or how bad she is, there is some connection that we can’t lose and see her cry will only surge you into sadness.
Wherever we are, whatever we are doing, we just want her to be extremely happy in doing whatever she is doing. As the Mother’s day is approaching, we might be in confusion to what actually should we be gifting her.
A bouquet full of flowers, some desserts, few chocolates, a dress; well there are so many items.While all mothers deserve the decadents; what if you’re looking for something that is entirely out of the box, this time? What if you want something which is thoughtful and meaningful than something that just has a price tag on it?
There starts the quest. Think of all the years that you have grown up and you might remember the most memorable moments with your mother that she has either captured in the camera or has stored in the box all the years.
When you look at it, you suddenly realize that she’s not the same mom in the picture that you have taken in your second grade. The first birthday picture of yours had her more lively and this is something both you and she will want to remember for a lifetime. Ain’t it? Right?
So, how do we create a meaning out of all these things? Well, one way to do it makes them out of the stories and the times that you have to spend together. The ultimate way to gift your mother on the Mother’s Day is putting a piece of the story in it. How? Let’s dig in to know more!
1. Arrange A Picnic
After spending so many days in home either alone or with isolation, she might need some fun with you in her life. Therefore, plan an outdoor picnic where she can just stretch without a worry in her life.
Don’t dwell on the details. Don’t even tell her about it. List out her favorite dishes and prepare all the simple ones. Once you’re done, catch a net, a blanket, some plates and drinks along with the food and go out!
2. Go For A Walk
A long stroll on the day is a nice gift that you can give her. By taking her to a walk, you are not only giving her your full attention but are also making her reminiscent of the times that she used to take you for a stroll.
Leave your phones at home or turn them off and just have the company of each other. Talk about your childhood, her favorite moments, your future and how life is going to be great with everything.
3. Recreate A Picture
This is one of the craziest yet sentimental idea that you can come up with. Therefore, take a photograph of hers with you and the siblings, that photo that has been on the mantel for years?
She stored them because she loves them. Most of the moms love to see when the kids are happy. So, why not recreate this picture again?
Call your siblings, tell them about the plan, wear the same clothes and take few pictures and get them framed side by side.
4. Stock The Freezer With Her Favorite Meals
Your mom is the first person on earth who keeps worrying whether you have eaten or not. Even if they are all the veggies! Thanks to her, that you’re now healthy and can eat the salads at the parties.
Because of her balanced meals that are stocked in the freezer along with the home cooked suppers, you are now perfectly peaceful. This is the time to return her what she did.
Both revenge and as well as a loving gesture, you can cook dishes and load her freezer up with them.

5. A Movie Marathon
This might sound a bit stupid, but why not? What’s more qualitative than spending some time with her? Even though embarrassing why not watch those cute home videos that you and she have made during your childhood and teen years.
If they are not adequate, you can always find the best movies about mothers and daughters, movies about mothers and sons. Set the projector up, make some popcorn with various toppings and set the marathon environment for her and with her.
6. Kiss Her When You See Her
How long has it been since you have kissed her? Growing up creates a space in the physical touch for reasons unknown. The same kid who hasn’t slept a day without kissing the mom is now too shy to kiss the mother in public.
While simple gestures weigh a lot to the people, this can mean so much to her. Just give her a big hug, kiss her on the cheek and celebrate the hell out of her happiness.
7. Log The Memories
Inexpensive yet the most expensive? Well, you can always make a scrapbook or a journal for her. Write down all of your favorite moments with her since you’re a child.
This can be the time when she has burned the loaf and set the kitchen on fire, the time when she slept without even knowing and started snoring without her knowledge.
Retell all those stories and traditions from your perspective to remind her that you always loved her and admired her as a kid.
8. Take A Class
Learning can be fun and as well as informative and therefore, take a class with her. If she is into painting or pottery, book a class for both of you so that you can learn it together.
This gift can even work for the broken relationships because you are encouraging her and trying to build a new relationship with her.
9. Bake Her Favorite Dessert
Think of all the times she got you, your favorite dessert. Now, it’s time that you give back. Know all the ingredients, buy them in the mart and make sure that it comes out just the way she wants it to be. She will surely appreciate the thought, the effort and will treasure your love.
That said, this Mother’s Day, let her know how special she is and how you haven’t forgotten any moment that you have spent with her. She is the only person in life who stored all those immature drawings, the sand art, the noodle necklaces you made and those scribblings on the wall. You should now try and store all the littles things about her. Don’t you?
