Mother's day is a difficult time of year for siblings because it requires them to work together to make their Mom's day special. The problem comes in when one sibling generally does everything at the last minute and just buys flowers from the petrol station and the other like to carefully plan an elaborate gift. This video is the perfect depiction of the process of buying a joint gift.
If siblings don't nearly kill each other over Mothers day, is it even Mother's day?
In case you have run out of original ideas on how to spoil your Mom, a photo book is always a win, containing memories from the last couple of years or even a timeline that starts from the oldest pictures. Of course, cooking a meal is always a win and gives your Mom a bit of break and a chance to relax with a glass of wine (also a much appreciated gift). Even better, take her out for the day to do something she loves whether it be yoga or wine tasting, spend some time with her!
Planning a picnic is a great way to get the family out the house and a relatively inexpensive way to make her feel special whether it be in a park or your own backyard that you decided to decorate. Whatever you do, DO NOT kill your sibling. Although all Moms deserve some peace and quiet, this will not be appreciated!
