You know that moment in your childhood when a kindly aunt/uncle/neighbour would press a note or coin into your little paw, gave you a wink and say 'now, that's just something for you, don't tell Memmeh'?
Well, Mammy always knew because Mammy knows ALL.
But sometimes we do get to surprise her (jumping out from behind a door and terrifying the life out of her remains one of my favourite ways). But today we are going to think about nice surprises, little gifts that she might like to unwrap on Mother's Day.
We've selected a few presents to suit all different kinds of Mamas to help inspire you this Mother's Day. From skincare to fashion, from beauty to bling - we've got you covered.
Now, if you're warm enough (did you remember to put on a vesht today, it's not warm out yet), you've had your breakfast (are you eating enough? will I make you a boiled egg?) and you've caught up on the important news of the day (do you know who's dead?), let us begin!
- If your mother is still rocking a blue eyeshadow form 1984, you might want to spoil her with a new addition to her makeup bag:
- The bathroom is the only place where many mothers get to have a moment's peace. And to be honest, sometimes not even then. So how about a gift to treat herself and beautify her bathroom shelf?
- And for the fashionista Mums:
- Or for the lady whose home is her palace, and her accessories are her prized possessions (after your baby photos, of course):
Now tell us, what are you planning to do for Mother's Day? Will you be squashing her with hugs, filling her with chocolates or buying her a little something?
But whatever you're planning, keep it a secret until Sunday and don't tell Memmeh.
