The love of a mother is unconditional and, as Princess Diana said, “A mother’s arms are more comforting than anyone else’s”, especially true during this period. No matter how happy or challenging our life may be, or during moments where we have just had enough, our mothers will always be our safe place. Over the past year, we have learnt to appreciate the small things and make the most out of everything. Why not make this Mother’s Day special and enjoy some fun & purposeful home activities together or indulge her to some rare ‘Me time’? In this article, we would like to share our favourite activities with purpose and gift ideas for Mother’s Day 2021. Don’t worry, new mum gift ideas and precious activities are included too!
1. Mum is off! (Great as a new mum gift, too!)
Every mother is her own superwoman, juggling many different things at the same time such as work, family, and love. This Mother’s Day let your mum feel like everything is taken care of and surprise her with a relaxing and soothing experience. Treat your mother to our Inner Light gift set to help balance the mind and body, and leave her feeling glowing; a present that every mum will certainly love! Since the postpartum period can be very stressful, it is also a fantastic idea for a new mum gift. It’s no secret that every new mum needs some much-deserved relaxation and will thank you later for this one! The Quiet Start Body Scrub deeply nourishes and soothes the skin, the Feminine Happy Oil helps balance the hormones and mood, and the Magnesium & Amethyst Deep Relax Bath Soak helps ease tension while rebalancing mind and body.
2. Create a Vision Board together!
As kids are the most valuable thing to a mother, they often set aside their dreams for them. While this is a selfless gesture done out of love, we should remind our mother of her ambitions and encourage her to pursue them, as it is never too late. Creating a vision board together is a great opportunity to share future aspirations and improve your connection while getting creative and having some fun! The purpose of a vision board is to bring dreams to life, and what could be better than sharing them with someone we love? Stimulate your creativity for this activity by using our Create Your Space Diffuser Oil to create an inspiring atmosphere. This essential oil blend, combined with our Beat the Blues Room Spray or Light Your Fire Candle, is a perfect gift idea for all mothers. These Products with Purpose will give them a gentle uplift anytime they need it, while making the house smell delicious!
3. Phones off, aprons on!
Nowadays, we spend a lot of time connected to a digital device for a whole host of reasons, like social media or work. Take the day with your mother to turn off your phones and completely dedicate your time to one another other. Cooking is a very accessible and stimulating activity which can also end up being a lot of fun. Where cooking is concerned, our mothers may have a few tricks up their sleeves for making delicious food, so this could be an opportunity to learn some new skills! Or they may have no clue of the whereabouts of their kitchen 😊 so why not turn it into a fun adventure by picking a typical dish from a foreign cuisine and having a go? Start your day away from digital devices, fresh and relaxed by spraying yourselves with our Digital Face Mist to reboot both your skin and mind. This enlivening remedial facial spray is also the perfect gift for all mothers who spend a lot of time working in front of their computers. Pair it with our Magnesium & Amethyst Deep Relax Bath Soak for a complete centring digital detox ritual which will leave any mother soothed and regenerated.
