It’s easy and fun to give your mum a card and some flowers on Mother’s Day. She may even appreciate breakfast in bed. But what does the mum in your life actually want for mother’s day? What should you get your wife for Mother’s Day? The answers are surprisingly simple. Sometimes, to be quite honest, we get stuck. So if you’re stuck, here are three things most mums would love for you (husbands) to do especially for the dad whose kids are too young to participate in Mother’s day!


1. Relieve her of her duties.

Like all mothers, your wife is also busy. Busy transporting kids, cleaning messes, giving advice, lending a hand, working a job, doing laundry, and attending meetings and events. Nothing says, “I love you,” like walking into the house and finding Mr. Husband has already cleaned it. This Mother’s Day, relieve your wife of her usual to-do’s by making it your responsibility. Plan the meal. Do the laundry. Help her catch up on something for work. 


2. Reassure her with your words.

Most women prefer something homemade that is meant more than something bought. Hearing how her family feels about her is the best present.  Honour your wife with your words this Mother’s Day.


3. Remember something she loves.

Whether it’s a special piece of jewellery she’s had her eye on or her favourite snacks, a thoughtful gift reminds your wife of how well you know her and that you’re thinking of her. What does your wife love? Be creative. Make this Mother’s Day special for your wife and think about how you can hit one or all of these three Rs — giving her some relief and reassurance, and showing her you remembered.
