Are you on the look-out for the perfect gift for your mother? Fret not. You can even trash the gift idea because there is something even better that you can do for her this year! That is spend quality time with her. There is no gift or flower or card that would make her happier! Just spend some good quality time with her to build a stronger relationship with her. And this will turn out to be a gift for the both of you!
Communicate With Her
Tell her more and more about your life and ask her about her day. Do it regularly. Be empathetic and patient with her. Soon you will feel that she understands you better and you will value her opinion on things that matter to you. A lot of times you might feel like she won’t understand you so you might shy away from sharing your problems with her. But you’ll be surprised at how much your mom loves and understands you. Remember, she cares the most for you in this world and nothing can make her happier than to have her child confide in her.
Leave her small notes around the house that would make her happy! Or drop texts to her while you’re out at work just to let her know that you’re thinking of her!The more time you spend together, you will build some inside jokes with her!
Talk about Your Friends
Tell her about your friends or even take your friends home so your mom can meet them all! It would make her really happy to meet them and she will feel more involved in your life.
You can hang out with her and help her out with the household chores! It’s a fun way to get chores done as you’re basically just gossiping while doing the laundry or doing the dishes together!
Learn everything that you can from her and while you can. Once you move out you’re going to miss home cooked meals, it’s always better to know how to cook. And it’s always such a great time to cook together in the evenings and talk about your respective days!
Listen to Her
Listen to her – her childhood stories or just listen to her venting out to you. She needs someone to talk to. You have a number of friends whom you chat with for hours on end! The least you can do is be there for your own mom!
This year on Mother’s Day, instead of showering your mom with gifts, make a conscious effort on spending more and more time with her. Make her feel loved and special every single day instead of buying her a gift one day in a year. She is going to appreciate this so much more!
