Simple ways to treat your Mum this Mother's Day
Add this event to your calendar
I'm sure we'd all love to be able to splash the cash on Mother's Day to really treat the special lady in our life. Unfortunately, though, the student budget just doesn't cut it!
Not to worry though, as they always say... 'It's the thought that counts'
So, here are some ways to say thank you to your Mum this Mothers' Day (without breaking the bank)...
Tickets to an event
Remember, your student discount is good for other things as well as Domino's and ASOS! Scour the web to see whether you can get some discounted tickets to a night at the theatre, food/drink festival or a comedy show. There's always something on - you just need to do some research.
A guaranteed winner - the difficult part is choosing which one. Yankee, although slightly on the more expensive side are tried and tested and last for ages. Try choosing a colour that matches her room or bathroom (it shows you pay attention and have given it some extra thought)
Check out sites like Groupon - you might find yourself a bargain
Take her out
Simple but effective. You can't get much more thoughtful than wanting to spend your free time with her. Do your research and find somewhere you know you can afford - see if they accept student discount or have deals on at certain times of the day.
Send her a care package
If you're not able to see your Mum, let her know you're thinking about her by sending her some of her favourite things. Be creative - photos of your adventures at uni, a souvenir from Scotland, her fave chocolates all sent with a card and a loving message!
Does your Mum have tons of photos up around the house? Add to the collection with an up to date photo of either you and her or of you and your siblings.
Ahhh, the age-old classic. Might not be the most unique gift but there's a reason they're so popular! Having a bouquet of her fave flowers delivered on the morning of Mother's Day followed by a call or video call is always a heartwarming gesture.
Just remember, Mother's Day isn't about spending loads of money or over the top gestures, it's to let your Mum know how much you appreciate her.
