Being ‘mum’ is a state of mind. Maybe your ‘mum’ is actually your grandma, or aunty. Maybe they’re that friend that always books the restaurant, checks you’ve got home safe afterwards and never forgets to get you a birthday card.
Whoever they are, whatever qualities they have, why not take the opportunity to show a little love?
- The Organiser
Don’t patronise them with a nicely bound diary – they’ve already got all the necessary tools to plan everything from the school run to a music festival.
Instead, give them the gift of having no control over the situation. Plan a full day out or weekend away, don’t give them the itinerary and just let them come along for the ride (just read up on train timetables and whatnot beforehand, so they don’t have to take over!).
- The Cuddler
Always there to wipe away a tear or two, The Cuddler is best in show when it comes to emotional support. It’s great that they’re such a good listener, but you might forget that they have hopes and fears of their very own too!
Picture the scene: a candlelit table at a nice restaurant, a bottle of wine, and you zipping your mouth shut and letting them monologue for a chance. It’s their turn!
- The ‘Tough Love’ Giver
They tell you the things you don’t want to hear – from “you need to sort your life out” to “that top looks awful on you”. But it’s exhausting being so brutally honest all the time…
Give them the chance to soften up. A trip to the spa, some scrummy smelling ‘bath bits’ – anything to let them focus on pampering themselves, instead of managing you.
- The Inspirer
“You can be whatever you want to be” they tell you, front and centre at every tuba recital or football match. They’re your biggest supporter!
So why not give them the opportunity to be the star for once? Swing dancing sessions, a ukulele, tennis lessons… the options are endless. But they’ll know for sure that you see everything that they’re capable of too.
- The Overworked
Whether banging it out in the boardroom, or organising chaos in the home, they are the busiest bee you know. And you could try and force them to take a break, put their feet up and enjoy some pampering… but they’d hate that! They love getting things done, and we’ve got the perfect gift to keep all their cylinders firing:
Pact Coffee gift vouchers! They can get all of the delicious coffee they want to keep them going, whenever they want it! In fact, we reckon it’s the perfect gift for anyone… so share the love!
