Mother’s Day shouldn’t be the only day of the year you spoil your mum, but it should certainly be one of them. Mother’s Day is a great reason to plan something fun for you and your mum to do together to not only spend time together but show her how much you appreciate her. If you’re looking for something more than a bunch of flowers, here are some ideas that are sure to show her you care.
If you’re a bit strapped for cash and can’t afford anything too extravagant, then staying in is a great idea. Why not plan a 3-course family meal together and spend the day cooking and baking? This is a fun activity-based thing that will give you two plenty of time together. If cooking isn’t her thing, maybe make a home cinema with popcorn and snacks and watch all her favourite movies. Of course, no Mother’s Day is complete without a card with a heartfelt message inside. Places like Card Factory have loads of lovely cards and present ideas for a just that little something extra.
The Great Outdoors
If you’re hoping to get out and stretch your legs on Mother’s Day, why not plan a hike? It doesn’t need to be anything too strenuous, unless your mum loves a challenging walk! Even if you live in a city, there are always great transport links to the countryside where you’ll find beautiful walks for all the family. This is a whole day activity that focuses on quality time together away from the distractions of things like phones and computers. If you’re looking for a cute finishing touch, pack a flask of tea or hot chocolate to enjoy with a stunning view.
Maybe you’re from a bigger family, in which case, why not invite everyone around and plan a whole day together. With Mother’s Day falling on March 31st, spring should well and truly be in the air. Why not plan some outdoor activities in your garden like games and competitions that all ages can be involved in. To top it all off, if the weather permits, a BBQ would be a fun way for everyone to have good laugh together.
This Mother’s Day, instead of reaching for those generic chocolates, why not plan something a little more exciting and memorable for both you and your mum.
