altWhile father's are said to have a special spot for daughters, boys are clearly a favourite with their mothers.

It is said that mother's hold their children's hands for a short while but their hearts forever. Indeed, your mother always cared for your comfort, foregoing her own on several occasions, and you always took it for granted. So, this Mother's Day, take the opportunity to appreciate the love, affection and care your mother showered on you throughout your life.

Now, this day may not give you excuses to go big on booze or dance wildly in a party, but you can still have loads of fun and make it special– both for your mom and yourself. Giving a pleasant surprise to your mother on this day would indeed a be a token of appreciation for all she has done for you. While we can never repay her, we can always express our appreciation for everything she has done for us and win her heart.

Here are you few Mother's Day surprises which we're sure your mother would love.

Create a Photo Album of Old Memories

Reminiscence is perfect for such occasions. Your mother would love it when she sees a picture of herself in which she's fondling a baby boy (who, by the way, is you). It also reinforces the family bond. Don't hesitate to do some treasure hunting. The photos which she hasn't seen for a long time would be ideal. Use all your creativity. You can take a scrapbook approach and include quotes, anecdotes, captions et al. And, in case you have some Photoshop skills, use them.

Make a Tribute Video

Want to set free the Spielberg in you? Start at home. Shoot a lot of raw footage of your family (with your mother in the lead role, of course) a few days before Mother's Day. Then you can interview friends and family and make them recount interesting stories about your mother. After you're done with the camera, it's time to put on the editor's hat. Insert a good soundtrack and see if you can also put in some effects. In case you're unable to shoot, making an audio slideshow of images would also be a great idea.


Buy Her a Gift

Remember how she showered you with the countless gifts when you were a little boy? But she still never asked anything from you. Giving her something she always wanted would be wonderful. Try and find out what she is the thing she has been wanting to buy and what would make her happy. You have a big list to choose from - Jewellery, gadgets, books, clothes, books, fragrances etc. Gifting a gift basket would be great.

Help Around the House

It's a textbook activity for Mother's Day and probably the most effective. Forget flashy gifts and dinners in swanky restaurants, just be at home with your mother. You should not just help her with the chores but also take new initiatives. For instance, help her plant a new flowerbed, wash her car, clean and rearrange the cutlery etc. See, if she had some household activity on her mind for a long time but was looking for a helping hand. Be that helping hand. Make sure you talk a lot to her all throughout the day.

Plan a Weekend Getaway for Your Mom

Find out which is her favourite holiday destination and then make travel plans. Make sure the planning is impeccable and you have taken care of all the essential things for the trip - hotel, conveyance, sightseeing etc. That way she need not be bothered by anything and can be totally relaxed. During the holiday, try to give her adequate time and see if you can leave your routine life back at your workplace. After all, it's all about making her feel special.


Enroll Her in an Interesting Class

Your mom always wanted to learn Photoshop, or maybe even dancing, but never really got the time. She had been too busy looking after you and the family. If she has a creative itch she so desperately wants to scratch, but never had the time and resources to, you can come to her aid. Find her a good classroom, preferably not overcrowded, in which she feels comfortable and also get the opportunity to learn. Do your research beforehand and on the Mother's Day hand over the confirmation letter to her. Her joy would know no bounds.

Take her Out for Dinner

You've gorged on the delicacies your mother prepared for you all your life. And more than that, the way she served them to you. She'll feel very happy if you take her out to her favourite restaurant and order the dishes she loves. But ensure that all the planning and bookings are done in advance. And in case you possess some good culinary skills, you can also cook a good meal for her yourself. Once she's done eating, look up to see happiness radiating from her face.
