As our website name indicates we like to talk about planning events. And with Mother’s Day upon us we thought we would give you some event planning tips for this very important day. Mother’s Day, of course, is a day where we recognize and celebrate one of the most important woman in our lives.
Event Planning Tips on Mother’s Day-Make the Gift Personal and about Her
I remember when I was a young boy in school. Our teachers would help us make our gifts for Mother’s Day (and Father’s Day too). Then we would hurry home and be so excited to present them with this homemade wonder. And, if your parents were like my parents, they would go on and on about how homemade gifts were the best possible gifts for them. Then, as I got older, I would start to purchase my gifts. I know they like their bought gifts but I couldn’t help wondering: did they like those homemade ones more than the ones that I was buying them.
From all of the research I did on gifts (well, truth be told, in all of my discussions with my mother) I think I have an understanding as to why mom loves the homemade gifts. You see, what she loves most about those gifts that didn’t cost much money was that they were personal for her and only her. It’s not that she doesn’t like to receive flowers on occasion, it’s just that a unique homemade gift has that extra special meaning to her. Now, I’m not suggesting that everybody crack open the scissors and construction paper and start making something special for mom. Rather, my suggestion is that her gift from you should be something that has special meaning for her. Sometimes it can be something as simple as a little pampering at a local spa, or treat your mom to one of her favorite meals prepared by you.
Event Planning Tips on Mother’s Day-When You Have To Buy Something Keep It Personal
Now I also realize that it’s not always possible to be with your mom because you may not be in the same town on Mother’s Day. So my suggestion for those who do look to buy mom that special gift is to make sure the gift matches her needs or likes. Being from the meetings and conventions industry I can tell you firsthand the top of all event planning tips is that you do it for the people you are planning for not what you would like.
The very popular gifts.com site has a great selection for Mother’s Day. What I like about the Mother’s Day page is that it breaks the gifts down into various categories as well as various price ranges. In other words it’s very easy for you to find the right gift in your price range.
Mother’s Day is just one day out of many that we should be taking a moment to thank our mothers for all that they have done in our lives. The best event planning tips for Mother’s Day include making sure that the event or gift is something that is near and dear to your mom’s heart.
From all of us here @plananevent.org we wish all of you moms out there the best day possible -Happy Mother’s Day!
