5 Special Mother's Day Ideas

We interrupt this blog for a short public service announcement... I've always wanted to say that and now I've actually got a valid reason. 
Here at A Blogger's Books it's clear that the focus is on books, writing and blogging. Today however, order is put on the back burner because our colleagues across the pond in America are soon to celebrate Mother's Day. Of course, one cannot let such an event pass without some sort of acknowledge, however small. My own mother is no longer with us, but that doesn't mean my annual ideas for presents should go to waste. I would appreciate it if you could add your special ideas in the comments section. And while we're at it, have a look at Amazon's Mother's day deals. I hear there's a 30% discount (limited time) on all jewellery too!  There are great ideas here for the active, glamour, or gardening mum, but let's get on with our own suggestions.

5 special mother's day ideas


  • If your mother lives far away make a DVD for her. Film her grandchildren and anyone else she knows with special messages just for her.
  • Restore an old photo of someone your mother loved who's no longer around. If it's black and white, maybe have it photoshopped in colour. It's easy to photoshop a picture of a new member of the family with an older one who's no longer around. Have it framed the way you know she'd like, and give it to her as a present.
  • Arrange for a mobile hairdresser and masseuse to pay your mother a visit at home so she can relax in her own surroundings.
  •  Get her a train/plane ticket to somewhere she's been and is longing to visit again.
  • Put all her favourite music she still has on cassette tapes and CDs, unto an iPod or MP3 player. She'll love it!
For younger mothers who just want something they can use, don't feel guilty to buy online and get a discount too. Enjoy Mother's Day with your mum and don't forget to add your special mother's day idea for an original present in the comment box below.
