Parents equip us with all the necessary life lessons, support, and skills needed to help us in our journey. Which is why it’s only fair to say that we wouldn’t be where we are today if not for our parents.

Similar to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, Global Day of Parents is celebrated on June 1 every year – the day of global recognition started by the UN. It’s a special opportunity to show your parents just how much they mean to you and thank them for their selfless commitment, unconditional love and care throughout the years. Here are some ways you can show your appreciation this Global Day of Parents:

Show Gratitude

Treat this day as your chance to make your parents feel special and appreciated. Say 'Thank you', ‘I love you’ and make use of such words to convey just how much you value the time, effort, sacrifice, support, care and love they’ve put into your healthy and successful upbringing. If you’re lucky and stay close to them or stay with them, spend some quality time with them. If you are far from your parents, ring them up and let them know that they’re always on your mind.

Make a Family Book

Although photo albums are a thing of the past, they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Do your best to find the most magical pictures that capture a time that you can all smile about and create a memory book for your parents. Remind mum and dad about all the fun times you’ll spent together when you were younger, and consider adding messages, notes, and other memorabilia in it. They will definitely treasure this incredible keepsake forever.

Surprise Them

We’ve made it easy to say thank you with a beautiful selection of gifts they’re sure to love. A beautiful bouquet of flowers from our Best Sellers Collection or Season’s Best Flower Collection is one of the best ways to surprise them, make them smile, show your appreciation and celebrate this relationship. Flowers are stunning and meaningful. They represent love, trust, compassion, and endurance — all the major factors that play a role in your lasting relationship with your parents.

Do Chores 

Regardless of whether you live with your parents or not, lighten their load and give them a break from their daily routines by dedicating this day to give a hand with the house chores. You could help them a great deal by doing their laundry, household cleaning, watering the plants, taking care of any tiny house repairs or even cook them a simple homemade meal as a treat. This small gesture is enough for you to say thank you in the most special way.
