Surprise Mum this Mother’s Day

By Madeleine Mittas

Published: May 9th, 2018

With how much mums do on a daily basis, they really are the ultimate bosses.

From chefs to taxi drivers, nurses to financial advisors, mums need to wear a number of different hats.

This Mother’s Day, celebrate the amazing job mums do every day by organising something special.  Fancy restaurants are nice and another pair of pyjamas come in handy, but nothing beats a present that comes from the heart.

Spend some quality time with Mum and give her the perfect gift by bringing Mother’s Day to her. Here are just a few ways to surprise Mum with something she won’t ever forget:

A VIP meal

If you’re not sure about what to serve up to mum this year, leave it to the professionals. Skip the stress of trying to book a restaurant and get a someone to come to you.

It’s easy to find a talented Tasker with the right skills and technique to cook your mum a five-star meal. Plus – they’ll even take care of the dishes while you enjoy some family time.

A musical surprise

If you’d really like to up the ante, talented musicians are easily found on Airtasker. Whether it’s a bit of Michael Buble or a few Adele tracks, some in-house live music is a treat Mum will love.

Busk at my Mum’s house for Mothers day

Are you a musician that can do a decent rendition of any of Daft Punk, LCD Sound System, Audioslave, Mumford and Sons, Kings of Leon, Queens of the Stone Age or similar?

I need at least 1 musician to perform at my mum’s house on Mothers day. Soloist is fine, or whatever you can bring, as long as you can play an instrument and sing!

You need to get yourself to Bellbowrie (bus stop nearby), sometime between 10am – 6pm this Sunday. You need to perform for at least 30 mins. Task includes travel costs.

That’s all. 😄

Skipping the chores

You can bet anyone would love a break from the chores. Give Mum the gift of time and surprise her by taking care of the housework before she even has a chance to get started.

Pick up plant from Bunnings

I require a pick up & delivery of a $12.47 Lisbone Lemon tree to be collected from Bunnings in Warragul and delivered to doorstep at Silverwood Drive Warragul. I would like this task to be completed on Mothers day morning Sunday the 13th please. The plant is a 2L lil tree at the moment so it can rest easily on your car floor or in a carseat. I will require you to pay for the lemon tree and thats included in the task fee. The plant is in stock and Bunnings is open Sunday morning from 7am on sunday morning.

The perfect personalised gift

If your mum is hard to buy for, it can be tricky. You could easily find yourself buying the same thing year in and out, or forgetting which books she’s already read. Try something different and plan a memorable experience she’ll love. Here’s some creative inspiration…

Looking for someone to turn 2 photos into 1
Or 2 separate images

Digital is fine
