What wonderful Mother’s Day treats have you got planned to put a smile on your mums face this Sunday?
A bunch of flowers or a box of chocolates are fail-safes, but have you come up with any better ideas? They say the best presents come from the heart and not the wallet, so you don’t have to spend a fortune to show your mum you care. You could create a traditional photo album or even a playlist of her favourite songs for her iPod.
Even if you leave it to the last minute, there are still thoughtful things you can do, like washing her car and making sure her tyres are properly inflated, because the chances are your mum is too busy doing things for others to have time to get these jobs done herself.
A couple of years ago, Hankook tyres carried out a survey and it claimed that seven out of 10 US mums said they “would not mind” getting a set of tyres for their special day and a third would actually love it….
We’re not entirely sure how well a new set of tyres would go down with UK mums or whether it would be as welcome as a box of Hoover bags or an ironing board cover. However, we are certain that giving your mums wheels the once over and letting her know that her tyres are properly inflated and have got plenty of tread will give her peace of mind and, most importantly, let her know you care.
