April is over-- do you know what that means? It means Mother’s Day is just around the corner! For some, the holiday can be a little intimidating. It is indeed the perfect opportunity to celebrate our supermoms and show them how grateful we are for all their love and sacrifice, but what exactly do you give someone who’s given you, well, everything?
If you’re still wondering about how you can celebrate your mom, don’t fret. Here’s a tip for this coming Mother’s Day: give your mom something according to her love language. Uncertain about what the different love languages are? Keep reading to find out!
Back in 1992, Gary Chapman, a renowned author and talk show host, wrote a book about how each person expresses and wishes to experience love. In the book, Chapman theorized that there are five different love languages in which people give and receive love: quality time, physical touch, acts of service, words of affirmation, and gift-giving.
These love languages can co-exist in varying degrees, and understanding them is key to building up your relationships. According to Chapman’s theory, each person has a different love language, and the languages in which they wish to receive and express love may be different.
While the thoughts behind a gesture certainly do count for something, wouldn’t it be much better to show love to someone in a way that they understand? Here are some of the gifts you can give your mom this Mother’s Day based on the different love languages!
For some, there is no greater gift than the gift of time. If your mom’s love language is quality time, all she would really want to do on Mother’s Day is spend time with you. Here are two activities you can do for your quality time-loving mom!
