How long has it been… since you’ve been away from your home? Away from that irritating rhetoric of your mother “Uth jaa… Kitna sona h?!!!” even on Sunday mornings…
Two months? Six months?
While they say one should show their love and appreciation to parents every so often, nobody really does that, do they?
You’re away from your home in different city; busy studying, busy working. While you probably talk to your mum and dad every other day, can you recall when was the last time you said you love them? Or the last time you appreciated them for everything they have done for you?
Probably not, right?
You’re shy, awkward and a busy child. And maybe it is for people like you, Parents’ Day came into existence in the first place. Good thing is we’re just days away from 24th July. So, grab this momentous day to not just prove your parents how much you love them, but to make them really (really!) happy.
How, you ask?
“I live in a different city. I can’t go back home right now; I am caught up,” you thought?
“I still don’t make enough to gift my parents a villa,” you cursed?
Well, well… It’s your lucky day! We, here, will tell you few pretty cool ways to thrill your parents even from a different city, without spending too much.
Ready? Here we go-
Early morning video call to surprise them
You probably (and hopefully!) voice call your parents every other day. Why not video call them on this day to wish? And why not surprise them early in the morning? Show them you can wake up early now.
Neat and tidy room to show you’re growing up
Remember all those times when your mother lectured you about keeping your room clean? Of course you do! So clean up where you’re living right now a night earlier and show your parents, through web cam, the ‘new you’ who know how to keep room tidy. Show them you have grown up.
Caution- your mother might faint of shock for a moment.
Flowers delivered in the morning for a fresh start of their day
Send them the sweet and refreshing essence of fresh flowers right in the morning to give them a bright start to this to-be-happy day. There are many online flowers stores who not only provide many amazing varieties of flowers but also offer fast and smooth inter-city delivery service.
A digital photo collage of all the times you spent together
If you have heaps of photos of you with your mum and dad, you can put them together and make a collage. Add filters to the pictures, write small, sweet messages over them and amuse your parents effortlessly.
Their favorite cake in the afternoon for dessert
Does your mother like that strawberry cake? Does your father crave that nuttier chocolate cake? Send them their favorite cake(s) in the afternoon as the perfect dessert to their lunch. Again, top online stores are your messiah here.
“Remember that…” stories to bring back the sweet memories
There are probably hundreds of incidences from your childhood that are still with you. You often remember them- sometime you smile to them, other time you end up with numb eyes. Why not reminisce those wonderful days and stories with your parent through emails, calls or recorded video? Let them find joy in the nostalgia of their younger days and your childhood.
Chocolates for a perfect closure to an equally perfect day
What better way to end a perfect parents’ day than appetizing on the custom chocolates? Send packs of chocolates to them with a note along, thanking them for all those times when they gave you their own last piece of chocolate after you were done with yours. Online gift stores also offer custom chocolates along with add-ons like tagging a note with the pack.
With these 7 simple yet outstanding ways, you can make 24th July the most memorable parents’ day for your mum and dad, and for yourself. Now pick up your phone and start planning already.
