10 Thoughtful Activities to do on Mother's Day

Mother's Day Activities 

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.

1. Breakfast in Bed

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.

2. Throw a Mother’s Day Party

Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to throw a little party, get together with family and add some sparkle to the day.

The Personalised ‘Mother’s Day’ Mini Celebration Box

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.

3. Make Afternoon Tea

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.

4. Take a trip down memory lane

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.
