How to Make Mother’s Day Really Special This Year
Every single mother is special. She’s the one who kisses our pain away, beams with pride at our accomplishments and is always there when we need her most. Mothers work tirelessly, tending to their families and loved ones to make every day just that little bit easier.
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to do something special for your dear Mum. You don’t have to break the bank to show her you care, but planning something just for her will show her you appreciate everything she does for you.
If you’re looking for some ideas on how to treat your Mum; and you want more than burnt toast breakfast in bed to mark the occasion, you’ve come to the right place.
Our top tips for Mothers Day are sure to get your inspiration flowing. Mum’s the word on this one!
Take the time to relax at home
Every Mum deserves a day off, and Mother’s Day is the day to ensure Mum is pampered. If you’ve got a limited budget or just prefer a stay at home celebration, there are a few ways to make Mother’s Day truly stand out.
Have a movie day
Setting up the living room with blankets, comfy pillows, Mum’s favourite snacks and movies is an easy way to stay home whilst doing something special. For a truly stand out Movie Day, set up a “floor picnic” complete with blanket and lunch ready to go. It only takes a quick trip to the supermarket to grab everything you need for a day Mum will love.
Take care of the housework for her (and any other day)
You are probably used to the sight of your Mother pottering around the house tidying, rearranging and organising. It’s tough work that often goes unnoticed to ensure that the household is running smoothly. Wake up early and get the housework done before your Mother wakes up. If you don’t live together, organise a time with her to come over (if it's safe under government advice); and wash up the dishes after you’ve eaten. It’s a little extra touch that will go down a treat. The extra benefit to doing this is that Mum has spare time and is free to relax for the other activities you have planned!
Set up a home beauty salon
Foot spas, massages, facials and manicures are all easy to do for your Mum at home. Have her sit in a comfy chair, burn some scented candles, play some soothing music and treat her to the full spa experience at a fraction of the price. Bonus points if you can run her a bubble bath for afterwards!
Cook her a fancy dinner
If you love to cook, this is the perfect time to flex your culinary muscles and impress your Mum with a special dinner in her honour. Pick up the ingredients that you often skimp on and put on a show; set the table with beautiful decorations and the best place settings. She will love dinner time spent with the family and being treated to the restaurant experience without having to leave the house. Alternatively cook her that fancy meal then drop it over to her, she'll be grateful we promise.
Make the most of Mother’s Day this year
Flowers, chocolates and handmade drawings are always well loved gifts so don’t forget to get creative where you can. The best presents are truly the ones that are from the heart, and making an effort is the most important part of making anyone feel special.
With a bit of pre-planning, it’s not hard to make your Mum feel like the Queen she is this Mother’s Day. Remember that the most important thing to her on this day is spending time with you and your family (in person or via the phone or video conference), feeling loved and appreciated for everything she is.
