3 Ways to Spring Surprises for Mom

Annual Mother’s Day is again on May 13th, 2007. What’s your gift idea this year for mummy? No ideas? Well, it’s never too late to think of that now, and I’m sure you could make it perfect after reading this article. Yes, nothing special, just show mummy how much you love her! There’s a saying, God could not be everywhere and therefore be made mothers. Even nothing you pick, don’t forget to have a dinner with her or only make a call, regardless how busy you are.

1. Buy Mom a Bunch of Carnations
Carnations are chosen to represent the sweetness, purity and endurance of mother love. Pink carnations are the symbol of a mother's undying love; White indicate pure love and good luck; Striped symbolize a regret that a love cannot be shared; Light red carnations represent admiration, while dark red denote deep love and affection.
As the mother’s flower, it’s also because carnation was the favorite of Anna Jarvis’ mother’s. Then why not pick your mother’s fond flowers as gift?

2. Prepare Her Favorite Meal
You know mummy packs meals 7 days a week, so, on this special holiday for mothers, please make her mouthwatering from breakfast to dinner. Treat your mother something she will never forget. But first of all, you need to find out what mom craving.
For my mother, I’ll prepare the delicious dishes follow this recipe:
Breakfast – A glass of orange juice, Pineapple sauce pancakes and Bake sausage;
Lunch – Ham and beans, Cheese soup, Vegetable salad and Creamy Tomato Pasta;
Dinner - Champagne, Smoked Sausage, Bagel pizza, fruit salad and a Chinese seafood Casserole.

3. Make Mom a From-Heart-Gift
In the past year, you should have a lot of treasure memory with mom, and snap it with camera. Therefore, it’s time to share and show the mom she’s special. Certainly, you could ask your dad for help, yes, family members love to make homemade gifts together, I know.
Here are ideas for a from-heart-gift.
Mother’s Day e-card
Pick some pictures, write down the words, such as, “Mommy, I love you!” or “Thank you, mom”, etc. and make some decoration.
Flash picture album
It must be interesting to design a flash picture album, since each album tells a full story. And a stunning flash album would make mothers fondle admiringly. Yep, do remember to add pieces of background music to spicy it up.

Some tools available for a homemade gift:
Wondershare Flash Slideshow Suite,
Google Picasa,
Greeting Cards,
Some songs maybe you’ll like for mothers:
Thank you mom by Good Charlotte; Mama by Spice Girls; A song for mama by Boyz 2 Men; Mother of mine by Cathy Ryan; Hey mama by Kayne west; Everything I do by Christina Aguilera

Last but not least, best wishes for all the mothers.
