On Mother's Day, the children of the house should pamper their mother
In accordance with all the rules of the arts. As the following tips prove, such an undertaking does not have to cost a lot of money.
Most important tip: It depends on the gesture
While on Valentine's Day and Christmas flowers, perfume and delicatessen for hundreds of euros go over the counter, Mother's Day is more about making small gestures with as personal a character as possible. If the mother sacrifices herself in everyday life for the good of the family, she should be allowed to put her feet up on this day.
So, when kids want to pamper their mother, they'll take care of all sorts of everyday tasks, from preparing breakfast to grocery shopping. (What mothers really want)
Mother spoil and entertain
In the meantime, Mama can finally turn to the things she has long since put off because of her obligations at work and in the household. A funny alternative is the issuing of vouchers, which the mother receives on the morning of Mother's Day by the bed. There are no limits to creativity. A reference to everyday life makes sense here: For example, vouchers for homework offer, if the mother alone is responsible for it.
Even better are special extras such as free passes for a massage, breakfast in bed or an invitation to eat. Tip: If you want to push the tension to the extreme, hide the vouchers throughout the house and play with Mama a kind of scavenger hunt. Homemade or a self-written poem shows great effects not only from the hands of young children.
A gift bought
But if it is supposed to be a gift bought, why not something extraordinary. The Japanese avant-garde fashion house Comme des Garçons has taken the omnipresence of incense in Japanese temple culture as an opportunity to create a whole series of "incense" paraphernalia. Even newer fragrance houses resort to edgy compositions on the old fabric: Jo Malone has now released a fresh version of incense with "Incense & Cedrat". For the first, maybe our incense cones are enough. Many different styles are available - there should be something for every special Mother.

Nevertheless, try to reserve a few extra moments for yourself. So, if you go to the Christmas market - just close your eyes and discover smells like: freshly beaten spruce, roasted almonds, cotton candy that reminds you of your childhood - look into the faces of little children and realize how beautiful it can be, just to marvel and discover - without any sense of time.
Since we have just four weeks left until Christmas, we have created a weekly checklist for all those who would like to have a stress-free Pre-Christmas-Season, but still want to celebrate traditionally, such as our German friends and families. Here is your checklist for the first week, the others will follow always at the beginning of the next weeks.
