What’s the best Mother’s Day gift you’ve ever received? You know, the one that almost made you cry – or actually had you in floods of tears?
I’m betting that it was something incredibly personal and touching. Perhaps a homemade card or drawing made by your children when they were young, with the words ‘I love you Mummy’ scrawled in crayon.
I have to say that does it for me every time. Flowers and gifts are lovely – and very gratefully received – but it’s the simple messages that mean the most.
That’s why I don’t think that Mother’s Day gestures can be measured in financial terms. I think what’s important is the time and effort you spend to make your Mum feel special – no matter how old you are.
