Mother's Day: Is expensive best?Next Post
Mother’s day this year (2020) is this weekend Sunday March 22nd, and this years is likely to be a challenging one for many of us, especially for those shut up at home self isolating.
So maybe it's more important than ever to make the Mother figure in your life feel valued even if you can't be close to them physically - we thought would be fun to look at some of the most extreme mothers day presents out there!
The most expensive Mother’s day cards
It’s actually very hard to fins a ridiculously overpriced Mother’s day card - etsy seemed like a good place to start.
Starting our search with Mother’s day card and setting the filter to sort by Highest price (and disregarding the first two entries which weren’t even cards!) the highest priced Mothers day card on Etsy was…. £686.70!
It’s listed as “Golden Girls Mothers Day Card” and features characters and items associated with the popular TV sitcom of the 80’s (or was it 90’s?). The weird thing is it doesn’t look like anything special and the buyers’ comments are strangely unironic, drawing no attention to the massive price tag!
(Update: Since initially researching this post the price has been amended to £6.82 - evidently a faulty decimal place to blame!)
Looking at this Sellers other cards (Which typically are more in the region of £6 to £7) maybe there’s just been a typo or they really don’t want to have to make any more of these!
The Next contender (But much further down the price scale), at £17.05 is this luxury handmade Mothers Day card which comes in a box (!?)
Not 100% sure how I’d feel if I was handed a box which suggested a nice present and opened it up to find a card (albeit a very nice one) - but the 29 reviews all seem very positive, so what do we know!
Home made Mothers day cards and presents
At the other end of the scale in terms of price are the more traditional hand made cards and presents which, I’m sure many mothers would agree, actually have the most value (Especially when accompanied by a bottle of something nice!)
Creating cute things for Mum’s is obviously a pretty popular past time as we found a whole Youtube Channel called Draw So Cute that has a video tiled How to Draw cute mothers day things.
This Youtuber has almost 2 million subscribers so she’s obviously filling a gap in the market!
Another potentially useful video for crafty offspring is this one providing 9 DIY Mother’s Day Gift Ideas (interestingly this channel only has about half a million subscribers and the videos look as though they were twice as much work to make!)
Last but not least - and no Mothers day would be complete without it - we found a whole Pinterest page devoted to Macaroni Art!
So if you’re really low on ideas and you have some spare penne pasta lying around you can still make something that makes your mum glow with pride!
Is there anything we should’ve mentioned?
