Mother’s Day falls on the 14th of March this year, so be sure to get that date in your diary! It’s a day to celebrate all the wonderful things your mum does for you. Mums are always supporting and looking out for us - even if we don’t always appreciate it. Lots of mums are guilty of not treating themselves and instead, putting everyone else first.
If your mum is always busy taking care of others, maybe it’s time you helped her to enjoy a rare day off from it all.
To make things a little easier, we’ve come up with our top five Mother’s Day ideas. She probably deserves the earth, moon, and all the stars in the galaxy - and while we can’t suggest a good way to deliver those, these ideas will at least go some way to showing just how much you care.
From a simple girl’s night in to a virtual meet-up for those living away, we’ve put together ideas for everyone. After such an unusual and often stressful year, it’s more important than ever to show those close to us just how much we love them.
Treat Mum to an at-home spa day
A spa day is always a welcome treat, even if it’s at home! If you’re able to spend Mother’s Day together, why not have a girl’s night in with plenty of pampering treats? Enjoy an evening of face masks and skincare treatments together - ideally with a big box of chocolates and maybe a glass of wine (or two).
Make her a memory book
There’s no doubt you’ve got hundreds of pictures together, so why not create a memory book full of all your favourite times? From embarrassing baby pics to more recent times, try to create a timeline of everything you can remember. Even better if you have some embarrassing pics of your Mum to share.
If you can’t get your hands on any glue or blank books in time, you can create these kinds of scrapbooks online and have them sent directly to her. Be sure to add in any funny anecdotes as you go along!
Cook her a delicious meal
If you consider yourself to be a bit of a domestic goddess in the kitchen, why not cook up a delicious three-course meal for your mum? You could even set a theme for the meal based on her favourite dishes. Or, treat her to breakfast in bed with a tray of indulgent waffles and pancakes.
If you’re not a big fan of cooking, you could always opt for her favourite take-out instead - it’s the thought that counts! Just remember to get the washing up done before she ends up getting to it herself.
Get your walking boots out
If you’re lucky enough to live somewhere with plenty of great walking routes, why not spend the day on a peaceful hike together? It’s a great way to get out and enjoy the fresh air - and with spring well on its way, we might even get a bit of sunshine here in the UK. You’ll be able to have a good catch-up without any distractions.
Check the weather the night before to avoid any disappointments, though!
Have a virtual afternoon tea together
Some of us might not get the chance to visit our mums outdoors this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Mother’s Day together. Have an afternoon tea delivered to her home as a surprise, then hop on a video call to enjoy some time together while she gets to enjoy a tasty array of cakes and sandwiches!
