Mothers Day Poem
Are you looking to express your love and admiration for your Mum in verse? This cheeky poem may just be thing you’re looking for!
Mom, I know you do the dishes
And I know you cook the food
I know you scrub down all the floors
Even when you're in a bad mood.
And every night you walk the dog
While I'm watching all my shows
On Thursdays you take out the trash
And every spring you wash the windows.
Mom, I know you're sad I'll go someday
And leave you all alone
But right now I'm only 35
So what other place could I call home?

Funny Mothers Day quotes
Finding the right words to say to Mum on Mother’s Day can be difficult. Thankfully we have some funny quotes that will make your card stand out from your siblings on Mothers Day!
“Mum, I love you, even though I’ll never accept your friend request.”
“Thank you for not telling my sisters that I’m your favourite.”
“Happy Mothers Day, Mum! (And while I have you, quick apologies for ages 13-21)”
“A mother is the person you can always call to see how long chicken lasts in the fridge.”
“Dear Mum, thank you for keeping all the bad stuff I did from Dad.”
What is the history of Mother’s Day
Although there are many older traditions associated with celebrating Mothers, the modern Mother’s Day was first initiated in the USA by Anna Jarvis, a social activist who was pursuing the wish of her own mother, for a day of commemoration.
What are the best presents for Mothers Day?
Mothers Day can be daunting. You want to get a present that expressed your love for your Mum, while still avoiding the inevitable, “I can’t believe you spent this much on me!” response.
But we love our Mums so we want to make them feel truly pampered and special on such an important day.
Whether it’s a Mum to a newborn or a Mum to a forty-year-old, our Mums deserve to be recognised on Mothers Day.
When looking for a gift, try to find a Bed, Bath & Body gift. These are ideal for Mums of all ages and focus on giving her a rare moment of quiet, tranquility and luxury.
For the braver gift-giver, you can purchase a Makeup Gift or Skincare Gift. Just make sure you know a bit about your Mums skin before going down this path. If she has sensitive skin, find products that react well, otherwise she will not be particularly happy!
For Makeup Gifts, try to find out her skin tone. If you are unsure, it’s always best to ask. Try to frame it in a subtle way, like “Mum, I love that foundation you’re using. What is called and what shade is it?”
If you’re feeling really brave, a Haircare Gift will give Mum endless joy as she will use it all the time.
If you have no idea where to start, never fear! Just pick up an Exclusive Gift Pack from Cosmetic Capital. They’re packed full of goodies that Mum will absolutely love!
Whatever you pick will be fine so long as you don’t forget a Mothers Day card. After all, Mums appreciate a hand-written note more than anything!
