When is National Aunties Day?
National Aunties Day is celebrated on Sunday 26th July 2020. This holiday recognizes (both) aunties and uncles; for the unique love they give to our children and ourselves.
5 Cool Ways to Celebrate National Aunties Day
1. Call Your Aunty and Tell Her You Love Her
When the location is an issue, there’s no better way to share your love and appreciation with your aunt than a simple phone call. Call your aunt and tell her you love her for national aunties day, regardless of how long it’s been since you two have spoken.
If you can’t reach her via phone call, use alternative solutions such as Facebook Messenger or Instagram Direct Messaging. Either method, she’ll appreciate you reaching out and letting her know how much you love her.
2. Take Her Out to Lunch
There’s nothing more exciting than taking your aunt out to lunch when celebrating national aunties day. It doesn’t need to be anywhere fancy; The riverside cafe, a casual restaurant up-town, or a reserved table is enough to say “thank you” for everything your aunt has done for you.
3. Host a Sleepover
What better way to rekindle family bonds by hosting a sleepover in celebration of national aunties day! Grab the popcorn, lay out the mattresses (-or give up your king bed for a night), and whip out Netflix.
If your sister is the aunty to your children, even better, now you have an excuse for Sunday night wines. And don’t forget, they can help you babysit your children for the night. (Thank me later)
4. Send the Kids Around to her Place
In celebration of national aunties day, show her how much you appreciate her by sending the kids around. This might not work for your aunties. However, for your child’s aunties- it’s certainly worth a shot!
No, this isn’t an excuse to be child-less for a day. You’re simply letting her know how much you appreciate her by offering extra time with the kids 😉 Whether she takes up that offer, however, is a different story… let us know!
5. Gifts, gifts, gifts
If accessible, gifts are another great way to celebrate national aunties day. Depending on their taste and whether you’ve pre-thought about this idea before, gift sending can be just as lovely.
