Mum’s big day is coming up soon and it’s time to start planning how to make it the best day EVER. After all they’ve done for you over the past year, it’s time to repay them. Mother’s deserve the absolute best, they deserve a day to remember!
Getting a great present is just half of the Mother’s Day equation and there are plenty of other little things you can do to make mum feel loved. Here are some tips on how to make Mother’s Day 2015 a special and memorable occasion.
#1: Use Eco-Friendly Wrapping Paper
If your Mum is anything like my Mum, she probably loves recycling. I mean, who doesn’t? We’re not talking about using last year’s crumpled Christmas paper though. Check out these Eco-friendly options from WrapCo Australia.
#2: Cooksomething special at home
Everyone knows that eating out on Mother’s day is a nightmare. It’s hard to get a booking to start with, and if you do get one it’s busy, noisy and costs an arm and a leg. Cooking at home is a great alternative, and it means you can make mum her favourite meal. Looking for some culinary inspiration? Why not check out Jamie Oliver’s collection of yummo Mother’s Day recipes including this Perfect Roast Chicken.
#3: Make Your Own Love-Filled Card
Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a homemade card. But if you don’t have time to make one, we’ve designed 6 beautiful cards (that you can personalise) to download. Find out more on our Facebook page.
#4: Bake a Cake
Cakes don’t have to just be for birthdays, make mum a special sweet treat (it might even be one of the recipes she passed down!). Check out this ‘Cakes Board’ on Pinterest (and follow Yellow Octopus while you’re at it!)
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mums out there from the Yellow Octopus Team!
