7 Awesome Ways To Surprise Your Parents On Their Special Day

Surprising your parents on their special day, whether that be a birthday, Mother’s or Father’s Day or an anniversary is very important, but not particularly easy. It can be very difficult for you to buy a gift for a loved one, especially if it is a surprise and they are not advising you upon a gift that they want. Surprising your parents with an awesome gift is one of the best feelings in the world, and it is not as hard as you might have thought to surprise them.

In this article, we are going to present to you seven awesome ways that we believe you can surprise your parents on their special day. We hope that, with this page, you will be armed and ready to give your parents the best day ever! If you have any of your own suggestions that you think can help other people to give their parents’ a special day, then please leave them down below in the comment’s section.

So, without further ado, here are seven awesome ways that you can surprise your parents on their special day, whatever that day might be!

A Cake!

What’s a special day without a cake? Not very special, that’s what! If you want to impress your loved one, or just show them that you love them and appreciate everybody has a sweet tooth, then you may want to invest in a cake. There are tons of Mother Day Cake options at Emicakes, or alternatively, you could just bake one yourself. Cakes are widely appreciated, loved, and always received with a smile. There is no shortage of cake options available to you on the market, and as we said, you can always bake one for yourself rather than buy one. If you do buy one, be sure to buy the cake best-suited to your loved one and not yourself! I have a problem of, come Father’s Day every year, buying my father chocolate fudge cakes, notwithstanding his hatred of chocolate. I, on the other hand, adore fudge cake. Don’t be me, whatever you do!

A Day Out

The world is just, it seems, beginning to open up again. When the world does return to normal, it is fair to say that all of us will appreciate a day out. If you, like me, are gagging to get outdoors, then taking your parents for a day out may well be the best way to give them a special day. Depending on where you live and what they are personally interested in, of course. If they are into history, why not take them on a trip to an ancient historical monument? Conversely, if they are interested in more modern pursuits, then you could take them on a trip to a modern art gallery, stadium, or work of modern architecture. A day out may be just what the doctor ordered – provided that you are allowed, by your government, to go outdoors once more.

A Holiday

Alternatively, you could take them on holiday [both of them!] The world is reopening, not just domestically, but globally. Travel is beginning to be allowed once more, and people are being permitted to travel internationally again. If your country is allowing people to leave the country, then we definitely think that a holiday abroad could be a fantastic way for you to stave the lockdown blues and inspire your parents to get outdoors and have a great time again. A holiday to, say, Rome, could well be in order. Give it some thought!


Jewellery is appreciated by both men and women. Jewellery can say a lot; it can mean a lot. Jewellery is the kind of gift that eventually becomes a family heirloom, so give it some thought. If your parents are into jewellery, then we definitely recommend you go all the way and buy them a special piece of bespoke jewellery for the occasion. For men, signet rings. For women, bracelets, necklaces, and potentially even a signet ring of their own. Give jewellery a thought if you want to impress upon them how much you love them. Jewellery is a great gift.

Bespoke Clothing

Bespoke clothing can be made for both men and women. Bespoke clothing is a fantastic gift to give, we assure you. London, England, is home to some of the best bespoke houses in the world, and you will be delighted to know that you can actually have much of their clothes made-to-order. Bespoke clothing is, inarguably, a fantastic gift to give to one of your parents – or both. It can be quite pricey though, so only make the investment if you can genuinely afford to do so. Bespoke clothing, in our opinion, is a fantastic way for you to surprise your parents.

A Tea Party

If the lockdown has not been fully drawn back by your government, but you are still able to go and sit in the garden with your parents as you are allowed to do in the United Kingdom, then why not arrange a tea party? We have been absent from our loved ones for so long now that the perfect gift could just be the gift of your presence and your family’s togetherness. Arrange a tea party in the garden, whatever the occasion. A tea party can be a fantastic gift to give to your parents – even if it isn’t really a gift.


Vouchers may seem like a boring gift to give, but you would be surprised at how well-received they can be by the older generation. With a voucher, they will be able to buy anything they want, whether it be new bed linen, or pots and pans! Vouchers are best bought from large department stores, for in these stores you can find virtually anything, which means your loved one will not be forced into buying something from a shop that they do not like. You could also just give them money! Give some vouchers some thought.

We hope that, with this article, you will be prepared to tackle your parents special day, whatever that day might be. This page, we hope, will benefit you in that respect. Thank you for joining us today.
