Dad’s turn to spoil mum on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is obviously associated with honouring your own mother. It’s all about pampering her with flowers and gifts so that she knows just how much you care. While shopping for flowers and that little something extra, you should not only think of your own mother but also your partner. The mother of your child or children most certainly deserves your attention and some spoiling on this special day.


Quite a few new fathers forget to celebrate Mother’s Day with the mother of their children. When the little ones are still really young, they won’t understand the meaning of this occasion and they won’t be able to spoil mum either. So, dad, it’s up to you to do so on their behalf! While shopping for flowers for mum, you should shop for you partner as well. The best part of online shopping for flowers is that you can place your orders together and have them delivered to different addresses if you like.


The best way of spoiling any mother is to give them the day off. Mothers have some of the busiest days with an overwhelming amount of responsibility. This is a job that requires your attention 24/7 with no breaks or holidays. Even if you have somebody watch the kids from time to time, you never really check out from being a mother. You also don’t get paid like you would at a regular job. Which is why we need to spoil mum at least once a year!


Begin by letting her sleep in while you prepare breakfast. Tend to the kids so that she need not lift a finger and serve her food along with the fresh florist flowers. As she tucks into the delicious meal you’ve prepared, she can enjoy the view of her beautiful flowers. You can let the kids join in the cooking if they are old enough and you can obviously let them present her with a card or another gift if you like. Even if you pay for the gifts, let the kids present them to mum. It will be that much more special and memorable. If your child or children are really young, you can write in the card on their behalf and still let them join mum in bed for breakfast. Just make sure that you are ready to tend to the kids so that she doesn’t have to interrupt her meal. Don’t forget to capture these special moments by taking some photos! You will love looking back over time!


If your kids are older and would like to buy their own gifts, you should still take the time to celebrate as a family and buy her something special too. It’s not just about kids showing their mothers some love, but also showing your partner how much you value their efforts. Remember, apart from flowers, other popular gifts for her include cosmetics (bath and body products), chocolates, a bottle of bubbly, and even gift baskets. Just make sure that you choose the gift according to her personal preferences.
