It is almost Mother’s Day again (it is Sunday, 14th of May this year; if you didn’t know) and it’s time to work out what you are going to do for her. This is the one day of the year where it is all about mothers; the women that have accomplished so much!
So how do you thank her for everything? Well that might not be possible in one day but here are some of the better options to get started…
Breakfast in bed
Lets be honest, how good is breakfast in bed?!
If you live at home (or even nearby) you should get up an hour early and surprise your special lady with breakky in bed! Some of the easier options are:
- Toast and tea
- Pancakes (especially the easiest banana and blueberry pancakes EVER!)
- Bacon & Eggs
- French Toast
- Cereal and coffee

Help around the house
Any great mum will definitely appreciate you helping out around the house so she can simply just relax on Mother’s Day. The gesture alone will show her how much you love and appreciate all she does for you. If you are too busy to head over to do the ground work yourself, why not hire a local provider to do it for you?
CanYa is the easiest way to hire local service providers; you could get a cleaner for the house/car, a gardener, a babysitter, a handyman or any other trade that she might need to help her out!
Wouldn’t hiring a local provider be too expensive?
Saving mum a couple of hours cleaning on Mother’s Day could be as cheap as $20/hour; just check out one of your local cleaners right here. CanYa is making it even easier to spoil your mum this Mother’s Day; for every job that is booked directly for your lucky lady in the week leading up to Mother’s Day, CanYa will pay for $30 of it!
All you need to do to is to jump onto the CanYa Facebook page and comment “BOOKED” under our Mother’s Day promotion and we will give you $30 off your job! But HURRY, it is only available for the first 10 people booking jobs!
High tea is the perfect mix of time with the family and delicious foods. Expect your food to be presented to you on a 3-tiered platter, with such delights as scones, biscuits, savoury bites and little sandwiches. Have a look around and you will find heaps of places offer high tea for Mother’s Day. It is definitely advised to booked ahead as they are crazy busy on Mother’s Day!
Buy her a gift
This is the easiest and most common way to show you care for her and are thinking about her. You might already know that she wants something or you can check out this link on some great gift ideas for mum.
If you are going to get her a gift, make sure you remember to get her a card; mothers love cards (for some reason)!
If you are living away or cannot be there for her on Mother’s Day then you could always send her flowers – pool the money from all the siblings if you have to. A nice bunch of flowers on Mother’s Day will make mum feel loved and put a smile on her face all day long!
The most important thing?
Just remember that Mother’s Day is all about mum! You should be making her life easier wherever you can and making sure that she feels loved. The ideas above are just the start, why not do all of them?
Think of all the things your lovely mum does for you, I think you’d agree that all of the above wouldn’t even come close to paying her back!
Also, a hug goes a long way!
