If you buy your Mother or Grandmother a bunch of flowers from the supermarket every year for Mother's Day then perhaps it's time to try something a little different.

1. Look for a nice park on the Brisbane City Council website and take along a picnic hamper. You can order remade hampers from The Gardens Club or Holistic Hospitality.

2. Write down a list of reasons why you love your mum on a card or an illustrated poster.

3. Make her breakfast in bed and then leave her alone for the rest of the day to do as she pleases.

4. Plant an herb garden or rose bush in her garden with a commemorative plaque.

5. For adventurous mums purchase a gift voucher for Story Bridge Adventure Climb.

6. For the not-so adventurous mums buy them a book voucher or gift card from Angus and Robertson, or Avid Reader .

7. Buy her a personalised necklace off Etsy with a charm for each of her children or pets.

8. Record her life story on a video camera (research a list of questions to ask her online).

9. Buy a gift voucher for a beauty treatment, such as Beauty on Latrobe or Elle Bache.

10. Copy the best photos of your family off of Facebook and Instagram and get them printed out. Write the dates and names of people on the back of the photos and then place them in a photo album.

11. Make a flower bouquet out of crepe paper or felt (see Craftgawker for instructions).

These are wonderful tips for next year's Mothers day. Every mom deserves to be loved and appreciated after what the had done to us. As a florist, I am looking to create a very unique flower arrangement just only for her and take her out to a dinner. Thank you so much.
