This Sunday, 30th March 2019, is the day when we all show our mums how much we love and appreciate them for all they have done and continue to do for us. To offer some inspiration for your own mum, we asked some of the Strata family what gifts they’re giving this Mother’s Day.
“I’ve chosen a personalised collage canvas for my mum. My sister lives in Saudi Arabia and she misses her loads, so I’ve gathered lots of photos of us growing up, and both me and my sister have written a personalised message to add to the collage to remind how much we appreciate all she does for us.” – Izzy Salisbury, digital executive.
Personalised gifts are a thoughtful and unique way to say thanks to your mum, and Izzy’s idea is just one of many. You’ll find a wealth of options on websites like NotOnTheHighStreet.com
from independent sellers offering a range of customisable items, from prints and canvases to engraved jewellery and monogramed accessories.
“I wanted to get my mum something that would help her to stop and relax, because she’s always on the go! Plus, the spa day is for two so I get to spend some quality mother-daughter time with her.” – Vicky Barrass, marketing co-ordinator.
Spa days are perfect for busy mums like Vicky’s who need to take a load off and have some well-deserved pampering. And you don’t need to splash out hundreds of pounds on a four- or five-star spa experience either, with great offers available through offer websites like Groupon
“Being from Northern Ireland, I don’t usually get to see my mum on Mother’s Day, so I send her a bunch of flowers to let her know I’m thinking about her.” – Stephen Gillen, campaign manager.
Flowers never fail to make a mum smile. Whether you give your mum a hand-tied bouquet from your local florist, or send a long-distance letterbox flower delivery like Stephen, she’s sure to love them a bunch!
“My mum shares my love for tea and cake, so I’m taking her for afternoon tea at her favourite place. I like to get her an experience as it’s a perfect excuse to spend some time together and enjoy some indulgence.” – Natalie Wilson, senior digital executive.
Afternoon tea is growing in popularity, with so many places offering their own variations of it. You can find themed afternoon tea sittings, including Alice in Wonderland, Game of Thrones, Agatha Christie and Live Opera, as well as traditional ones catering a range of sandwiches, cakes and teas to suit your mum’s tastes.
