Worried you’re going to mess up Mother’s Day?
Did you forget to get something? Did you say “well, you’re not my mother”? Tell me you didn’t say that to her… Did you know Mother’s Day is the most dangerous day of the year for couples?
Hopefully, it’s not too late. I’ll do what I can to help. Here’s what you should do:
1. Make a card
If you want, you can steal the one I made by downloading it here. I like cards with innuendos and humour, if your wife doesn’t appreciate that thing, make your own. I highly suggest Canva – I use it for all my graphics. Or, you can grab my template if you like and use it as a starting point.
The point is, you don’t have to go out, you can make one. Even just hand-write it if you’re not good with technology. It will be appreciated so long as the message is sincere.
2. Get a gift
Now, ideally you would have thought about this earlier and had one on the way. Sometimes it doesn’t work out. So, if you need something quick, chocolates are often a win and a simple trip to the grocery store can get them.
Or, many wives love our Sexy Coupons printable. Particularly if you stick to the Romantic, or maybe Sexy versions (depending on your wife). Use the coupon code MOTHERSDAY to get 30% off. You can print them today, cut them up and give them to her today. There are lots of coupons to choose from, so give her a stack of them that you think she’d appreciate and get ready to walks, backrubs and foot massages.
If you don’t know how to give a good massage and you want to go big, I highly suggest checking out Melt’s couples massage course. They’re awesome, non-sexual and you can learn as you massage. Get this today, tell your wife you got it and let her know you want to practice on her so you can get better at massaging. This is one of the best gifts I ever bought for my marriage. If you want to know more about it, you can read my review here.
3. Make / buy dinner
Lastly, don’t make your wife make dinner. Either make it for her (and something better than Mac & Cheese), go out (if you can/want, we’re still in COVID lockdowns here), or order in. The point is, don’t make her cook or do dishes. Yeah, I know many of you cook often and clean up as well. But today isn’t a good day to share the workload. It’s a good day to take it all on.
4. Set a reminder for next year
So you aren’t surprised again. I think with some more planning you can do even better.
