Our Mum’s are one of the biggest parts of our lives and one of the most important. It’s only when we get older that we realise how much they did for us over the years! It’s hard being so far away, especially on Mother’s Day. What makes me feel even worse though is when I don’t even realise it’s Mother’s Day at home as it’s not Mother’s Day here!
For any friends and followers out there who live in the Southern Hemisphere but whose family live in Ireland or the UK this Sunday 6th March is Mother’s Day back home. It’s so hard to remember when you live here as there is nothing to remind you.
Here are a few last minute ideas if you have forgotten.
- How about a new book for your Mum – check out Easons. Don’t even consider a Kindle book through Amazon, I’ve been down that road before – apparently unless you live in the US you can’t buy an ebook for a device which isn’t yours! While speaking of Easons – if you check out their online store you will see they actually sell a lot more than books these days.
- Photo Gift – I’m always one for a photo gift as I think you can’t have too many family photos in your home and being far away your Mum would love another photo of you to look at. Check out PhotoBox or Snapfish.
- What about some wine and chocolates for your Mum, delivered straight to her door – check out Tesco Online. I have an online account with Tesco and can have whatever I like delivered to whatever address I choose – it’s great for last minute things if you forget.
- What about a voucher for your Mum – look at your local Relaxation Spas, Nail Salons or her favourite Restaurant – you can order a voucher online which they will deliver to her.
- Then there is always flowers, what Mum doesn’t love flowers from her daughter or son. Look at Flowers.ie
So there you go – get onto it quickly if you want to have something delivered in time. You may find today is the last day to guarantee delivery by Sunday if you choose Express Delivery – I know I just did!
