Mother’s Day is nearly here, and it’s important to plan ahead if you want to give your mum a real treat this year! Sunday 14th May is the date to put in your diary. Here we take a look at some of the reasons why it’s so important to spoil your mum, and the best ways to make her feel loved and special.
It’s Traditional to Give Gifts
Australians have been giving gifts to their mums on Mother’s Day since 1924! It all started with a lady called Janet Heyden from Sydney, who helped out with a charity that supported poor women and their children. Janet met a lot of lonely mothers in the course of her charity work, and was determined that they should feel special on Mother’s Day. She collected donations of gifts from local businesses, and rounded up a group of local schoolchildren, who took the gifts to poor mothers who were in hospital.
This tradition grew in popularity every year, until it became the custom all over Australia for children to give gifts to their mums on Mother’s Day.
She’s Given You So Much
We’ve all taken our mums for granted at times, but when we stop and think about it, we can realise just how much she’s done for us. Obviously, she’s given us life, but that was just the beginning. Our mums have cooked for us, cleaned up after us, and taught us right from wrong, as well as plenty of other life lessons, large and small. Thanks to mum, we’ve become the people we are today!
She’s Our Best Friend
Our dependence on our mums doesn’t stop when we no longer need her to tie our shoes and wipe our noses. As we get older, mum becomes a really good friend, someone we can turn to for advice or share our news with, whether it’s good or bad. She’s always prepared to give us her time, and always ready with a hot drink, a hug and a shoulder to cry on. She always looks after us, which is why Mother’s Day is a perfect chance for us to look after her.
She Deserves to Feel Pampered
Mums often spend so much time taking care of everyone else that they don’t take enough time for themselves. Why not give mum the chance to feel special and pampered this Mother’s Day with an organic hair care treatment? Organic products are gentle and will make your mum’s hair super healthy and shiny. Knowing she looks good will make her feel great, and it will also give her time for some much-needed relaxation!
And don’t forget, Mother’s Day doesn’t have to stop with your mum. Many of us have a stepmum, auntie or close family friend that we view as a mother figure, so why not let them know how much you appreciate them by spoiling them, too?
Here are some Mother’s Day packages we’ve put together to make your mum look and feel great. Find out more here.
