Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show your appreciation for all the things (big and small) that your mum does for you throughout the year. But making it extra special can be a challenge, as we all know how busy and hectic life can get at times. This is why we’ve put together 10 thoughtful activities that you can do on Mothering Sunday, so you can make your mum feel really special this year without the need to spend hours scouring the internet for ideas and inspiration.
There’s no better way to start the day than serving a delicious breakfast in bed including all of your mum’s favourite treats. It could be a cooked breakfast, croissants, French toast, pancakes, berries with yoghurt and granola, cereal, scrambled egg on toast…whatever her favourite breakfast is. To add that personal touch why not serve her breakfast on our Personalised Mother’s Day Breakfast in bed placemat.
You can choose from three different colour ways to match your mum’s personality, as well as personalise the name and who it is from. It’s these little touches that make someone feel extra special and are guaranteed to put a smile on her face.
Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to throw a little party, get together with family and add some sparkle to the day.
is filled with everything you’ll need, including a beautifully scented fig and wild pear candle, three golden heart balloons, an adorable matchbox for lighting the candle and a pouch of golden heart confetti for that added sparkle! You could decorate your mum’s space at the dining table, set up the party decorations as a surprise or add a fun touch to breakfast in bed. Wherever you are planning on celebrating Mother’s Day this year the Mini Celebration Box can come with you.
Freshly baked scones, cakes and sandwiches paired with a good cup of tea are a winning combination. For that thoughtful touch make your mum’s favourite cakes, include her top choices of sandwich filling and serve her cup of tea in a Personalised ‘I Love You Mummy’ Photo Mug on a Personalised ‘I Love You Mummy’ Photo Coaster.
Choose your favourite photo together and personalise the mug and coaster, along with her name and who it is from. These would also make such thoughtful gifts for a grandma, nanny, auntie, sister, cousin…whoever the special lady in your life is.
Nowadays many memories and photographs stay in digital form but taking the time to print off some of those special moments and put them into a scrapbook really would mean the world. Our Personalised ‘I Love You Mummy’ Keepsake Scrapbook is available as either a grey album with white paper or black album with kraft paper and has plenty of pages for all of those treasured memories. You can also personalise the front cover with a photograph, who it is to and from. On Mother’s Day you can then all take a trip down memory lane by looking through the scrapbook together, laughing at the funny moments and remembering the small moments.
Who doesn’t want or need a pampering every now and again? Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to create a spa experience at home and give your mum some much needed time to unwind, pamper and relax. Our Personalised ‘Mum’s Mini Spa in a Bag’ Survival Kit has everything you’ll need for the full spa experience with a decadent scented candle, an olive leaf bath bar and the delicate Nathalie Bond organic Bath Salts with Lavender and Bergamot. A relaxing spa evening or a treat before going out for the day, this thoughtful activity guaranteed to leave your mum feeling like a new woman.
There are so many incredible days out to be enjoyed, whether it be visiting a museum about something your mum is particularly interested in or going for a pretty walk or appreciating the paintings in an art gallery or grabbing a bite to eat in her favourite café. Spending quality time together on a day out is so special, but to add that extra thoughtful touch you could give the gift of a Personalised Child’s Drawing Keyring or Personalised ‘I Love You Mummy’ Photo Keyring making her journey there one to remember too.
As Mothering Sunday is at the end of March it is the ideal time to start growing flowers in readiness for the imminent warmer months. If your mum enjoys gardening, then she’ll love receiving a Personalised ‘Bee’ Positive Flower Pot & Wildflower Seed Kit and your time to plant the seeds together. The plant pot can be personalised with her name and comes with wildflower seedballs that are very bee-friendly for the garden.
Taking the time to read can be a challenge, so why not put some precious time aside on Mother’s Day to read together or share a book by your mum’s favourite author. Hide a Personalised Photo Metal Bookmark or Personalised Child’s Drawing Metal Bookmark inside the book for that added thoughtful touch that will forever remind your mum of those special moments.
Snuggling up and watching a film is a winner whatever the weather outside. Pick a film with your mum’s favourite actor/actress in, snuggle up under a blanket all together and give the gift of a Personalised ‘Reserved for Mummy/Grandma’ Velveteen Pocket Cushion to make it extra comfortable. You could even fill it with her favourite snacks, magazines, books, drinks etc. to make the experience one to remember.
Decadence at its finest. Spend Mother’s Day evening enjoying a glass of red wine served from a Personalised ‘Mum’s Tipple’ Wine Bag alongside a wooden board filled with cheeses, crackers, chutneys, grapes and figs. It would be the perfect opportunity to catch up with mothers across the generations in your family, appreciate quality time together and enjoy good food/wine.
There you have it…10 thoughtful activities that you can do this Mother’s Day (or any day you want to show your mum how much you love her) that will guarantee a smile and a heart full of love. So, however you plan to spend Mother’s Day this year we hope that you have a really lovely time together.
