It’s coming up to that time of year again where we have the perfect opportunity to say thank you and show love to that special lady in our lives, yes it’s Mother’s Day. This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 10th March, so it’s time to get thinking about what gifts or surprises you can arrange to celebrate…
Give Her the Day Off
Sundays of course are a favourite for Sunday Dinner with the family, and often it is the lady of the house who does all the cooking. We suggest giving her the day off, by cooking the dinner for her, or treating her to a fabulous Sunday Dinner out at her favourite pub or restaurant.
Treat Mum to PiPii’s Palm Leaf Picnic Pack for 5 at £14.99 so she doesn’t have to do any washing up through the day either! Its even biodegradable, compostable or recyclable too.
Sometimes the best gift ideas are not the things we buy, but we can instead put our time and effort into making something…
- Why not get baking and make some tasty cupcakes, brownies or a traditional Victoria sponge? Think about your mum’s favourite sweet treat and get baking. We love this perfect Victoria sandwich by our favourite baker Mary Berry.
- Instead of buying a box of chocolates for you mum, why not make your own chocolate truffles. This guide on BBC Good food makes it easy, with a video to illustrate the steps involved.
- You could also make your own teacup candles, as shown previously on our blog, created by Shelley from the Roman at Home team.
Make or Pick a Card
You could always get crafty and make your own, card, but if you prefer to purchase one, here are our favourite picks too:
Make your own Mother’s Day card with our Free A4 Jpg template and our Free printables… or perhaps get kids to do it for Mum!
This vintage style card from Paperchase looks great and 25p from every card goes to Ovarian Cancer Action.
If you are sending on behalf of your little one, this Cheeky Monkey Card, from Paperchase is a clear winner.
If you want to personalise a card, we love the selection available on Moonpig. You can upload a photo, or drop your mum’s name into the wording.
Why not treat her to some indulgent gifts? Here are our favourites:
Our colourful Heathcote & Ivory Vintage Mimosa Floral Wash Bag with Mirror is the perfect gift for the lady who likes to pamper herself.
