Top 3 Gifts for Mother’s Day

Mother's Day - http://anitasookan.com

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and for that reason I will dedicate this post to my mum and give you some ideas how you can make your mom really happy tomorrow.

I am lucky enough to have the best mom in the world, who inspires and surprises me every day. She accomplished all her dreams and very often, I ask myself how she managed to raise three kids, work up to 60 hours a week, cook a good meal on a daily basis, get all the tasks at home done, keep up a happy marriage for already more than 30 years, remember all appointments of all five of us and still stay so happy, humble and young. If it wasn’t for her support and her belief in me, I wouldn’t be able to pursue half of my dreams. In fact, I wouldn’t be the person I am today because she taught me the imporance of values like honesty, respect, modesty, discipline and hard work.

When it comes to gifts, however, she is the hardest person ever. She is so happy and content that there is literally nothing she really craves for. Getting her something nice (i.e. expensive) that every woman wants also doesn’t work because it just ends up in her closet, right next to labeled purses, silk scarves, delicate jewellery and exclusive perfumes waiting forever to be used on an appropriate occasion. That’s why instead of giving her material things, I focus on the very little things and try to return a tiny fraction of the attention and support I get from her.

Here’s some little things which make my mum really happy and will for sure make your mum happy as well and are very easy on your budget:

Spend time with her
We are all living our lives containing all our different duties, friends and our partners and mostly, families and mothers get the raw deal.
Mother’s Day is the perfect occasion to take her out to a nice café or restaurant and involve her in your life. Tell her what you’ve been working on lately, what made you happy, what made you sad. Tell her what you’re planning in the near future and ask her about her opinion (mums love to give advice!). On the other hand, ask her what is going on in her life and which issues are affecting her currently.

Say “Thank you” (… and really mean it!)
We can all be a real pain in the neck to our moms. Usually, they are the ones who get the full load of bitchyness when we’re in a bad mood because they know we don’t mean it like that.
Every now and then it is necessary to tell her that you really appreciate all the things she has done for you, for always being there for you, for taking care and worrying about you. Tell her that she has done everything right and she made you a good person who she can be proud of.

Tell her how you feel about her
I have a really hard time when it comes to expressing my feelings and putting them into words so I know that this one is probably the hardest.
Even though moms know it without you having to say it, I think it is really important to let her know how much she really means to you. Tell her that you love her and that she is an important constant in your life.

I wish you a happy Mother’s Day to you and your moms!


Sutra je majcin dan i iz tog razloga cu posvetiti ovaj post mojoj majci i dat cu vam par ideja kako sutra mozete usreciti vasu majku.

Ja se mogu nazvati sretnom sto imam najbolju majku na svijetu koja me inspirira i iznenaduje svaki dan. Ona je ostvarila sve svoje snove i cesto se pitam kako je uspjela odgojiti troje djece, raditi cak i do 60 sati u tjednu, svaki dan spremati ukusnu veceru, obaviti sve kucne poslove, odrzati sretan brak za vec preko 30 godina, zapamtiti sve nase obaveze i ipak ostati tako sretna, skromna i mlada. Da nije bilo njezine podrske ja ne bih uspjela cak ni pola toga sto jesam. U biti ne bih ni bila ta osoba koja jesam jer me je ona naucila iskrenosti, postivanju, skromnosti, discipline i trudu.
Sto se tice poklona ona je najteza osoba koja postoji. Tako je zadovoljna da zapravo nema nista sto bi ona stvarno htijela imati. Pokloniti joj nesto lipo (tj skupo) sto svaka zena zeli isto nije dobra opcija jer to na kraju zavrsi u ormaru pored torbi, svilenih salova, nakita i parfema cekajuci na posebnu prigodu. Iz tog razloga radije joj poklanjam male, ali vrijedne stvari da bih joj vratila bar mali dio paznje i podrske koju ja dobivam od nje.

Evo par nacina koji usrecuju moju mamu i koje ce sigurno i vasu majku usreciti:

Provedite vremena s njom
Mi svi zivimo zivot pun obaveza, prijatelja, partnera i najcesce su obitelj i majka najzadni na nasem spisku.
Majcin dan je upravo zato dobra prilika da joj posvetite malo svog vremena, da je odvedete u lijep restoran na rucak i da je ukljucite u vas zivot. Recite joj na cemu ste radili u zadnje vrime, sto vas je cinilo sretnim ili tuznim. Recite joj sta planirate u skoroj buducnosti i pitajte je za njezino misljenje (majke obozavaju davati savjete!). Sa druge strane, pitajte ju sta se dogadja kod nje i sto joj je trenutno vazno.

Recite “Hvala” (… i budite iskreni!)
Mi svi nekad znamo biti teske osobe za nase majke. Po obicaju, su one prve koje prime cijeli nas teret i svu nasu frustraciju kada smo lose volje.
Zato je potrebno svako malo joj reci da vam stvarno puno znace sve stvari koje je ona za vas ucinila, sto je uvijek bila tu za vas, sto je se brinula o vama. Recite joj da je ona sve napravila kako treba i da je odgojila dobru osobu kojom se moze ponositi.

Recite joj sto osjecate prema njoj
Meni vrlo tesko pada pokazati osjecaje ili pogotovo pricati o svojim osjecajima. Iako majke sve znaju cak i sto nisi izgovorio, mislim joj treba dati do znanja sto ti ona stvarno znaci. Recite joj da je volite i da je ona vazna konstanta u vasem zivotu.

Zelim vama i vasim majkama sretan majcin dan!
