Three upcoming dates you shouldn't forget

TERIMA kasih, thank you, xie xie, nandri. Saying thank you is one of the simplest ways to show your appreciation.

While we should be thanking our loved ones every day, we don't always do it. Fortunately, there are special celebrations throughout the year that highlights the importance of being grateful to your loved ones.

So before you forget these dates, open your calendar and take note of these three important occasions to celebrate your loved ones.

Mother's Day

Did you know that Mother's Day was on March 11? Just kidding, that's the date for Mother's Day in the UK. For Malaysians, fret not as there's still some time left to buy mom a gift before the actual day on May 13. 

This is the part where the typical gift recommendations would be spa days or breakfast in bed, but for that special woman in your life, why not go the extra mile? 

Does mom love to cook, or maybe garden? Try buying a selection of potted herbs and make a cute little garden in the kitchen or the backyard. This gift is handy to boot whenever mom needs some herbs to spice up her dishes.

For the K-drama ajumma, sign her up for an online streaming subscription. If mom isn’t tech savvy, don’t brush her off. Think back and remember the times when mom was patient with you, so remember to be patient and teach her the steps. 

Anniversaries 

Have you ever made the mistake of forgetting an anniversary? We would definitely not recommend it.  Anniversaries for couples, whether dating or married, are occasions that you definitely shouldn't forget. Always keep the date marked on your calendar or set up a reminder, just in case.

Anniversaries are held to especially high standards because of the memories associated with them. For couples who hold anniversaries especially close to their hearts, take some time off for a weekend getaway or a simple staycation to focus on quality time with your loved one.

But if you’re the adventurous sort looking for something new to try, why not get your blood pumping with adrenaline-filled activities? Put your heads together and play a round (or two!) of Escape Room and see if you’re able to break out.

For the outdoorsy couples, take your relationship to new heights with a thrilling skydiving adventure. It’ll certain make for a memorable experience and a fun story to tell your friends and family.

Birthdays

The older we get, the less glamorous birthdays seem to get. We start to view it as a routine, but this year, shake off those birthday blues and celebrate them for what they are – an appreciation of life.

Are your friends and family constantly complaining about being too tired to go out to celebrate? Instead of going out, try taking the party to them! Surprise parties never grow old and the look of momentary shock followed by delight is always worth it.

If you’re looking for gift ideas, take their interests into consideration. If dad’s a coffee drinker, introduce him to the wonderful world of French press coffee. If you have a hipster friend, a selection of succulents is probably a good idea. As for your travel companion, a world map with some pins to mark each country that you’ve travelled to would be the sweetest. 

Something special

Whether it's for an anniversary, birthday, or any other special occasion, a gift, be it small or big can brighten one's special day.

When it comes to forging relationships, you'll find that a key factor in success stories is communication. For meaningful presents, consider giving them a gift that focuses on connecting you with your loved ones, like a data plan.
