With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you’re probably thinking about gift ideas for one of the most special people in your life. But the best Mother’s Day gifts don’t always have to be gift-wrapped - here are some fabulous ideas to delight you mum this year and wish her the best Happy Mother’s Day!
1. Take her out on a date
No doubt mum has been busy all year round keeping up with her mummy duties – housekeeping, cooking, running errands and taking care of the kids – and in all likelihood, doing it all while juggling a job. She probably doesn’t get much opportunity to get out and about so she’ll really appreciate it if you take her out on a date on Mother’s Day. Take her out for lunch or dinner, or even visit a nice hotel or café for an indulgent high tea. She’ll love spending some quality time with you.
2. A day at the spa
What’s not to love about a day at the spa! We can almost guarantee that a day of relaxation all to herself will be one of the best gifts she’s ever received. Let the professionals pamper her with a whole-body massage, manicure, pedicure, and facial, or whatever spa pamper package fits with your budget. Even better, book for both of you so you can spend some quality time together.
3. Do her job for a day
If mum just wants some time off from the domestic duties, don’t worry, we have one of the best gift ideas she will still love, even if you don’t take her out. Give her a voucher for your time - doing her domestic jobs for a day! Mum can redeem it on a day of her choosing so she can take some time off knowing that you’re going to take care of the usual everyday chores like cooking, cleaning, laundry and gardening.
4. Go for a picnic
Restaurants can get pretty pricey (not to mentioned booked out) on Mother’s Day, so why not plan a picnic for mum and the rest of the family at a park or the beach. Pack a lovely picnic basket with some tasty treats then head off and enjoy the day. If you’re stuck for inspiration, check out these awesome Mother’s Day picnic ideas from BBC Food, The Kitchn and Better Homes & Gardens.
5. Take her away on a short break
Mums are very special in our lives and sometimes you just need to go all out to show her how much you care. If you want to do something really special for mum, why not take her away for a short break. You don’t even have to go too far – there’s probably a local attraction not too far away from where you live. So check out the top places to go and things to do in your local area, book somewhere nice to stay for a night and start preparing your list of fun activities to do with mum on a weekend getaway of her choosing.
6. Give her a bouquet of flowers
One of the best gifts that never runs out of style is flowers, so don’t forget to include a bouquet of her favourite blooms on your list of gift ideas for her this coming Mother’s Day. It’s one of the best ways we know to let her know how much she means to you.
7. Prepare a meal for her
Let mum spend a lazy morning in bed while you prepare a delicious breakfast for her – bacon, eggs, mushrooms, and grilled tomato, with some fresh fruit and juice on the side, and of course a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Serve it to her in bed and let her wake up to the tempting aroma of that beautifully prepared food. If breakfast isn’t really her thing, how about preparing a home-cooked, three course dinner for her instead. Either way will make her feel extra special and loved.
8. Take her to a movie
If your mom is a movie buff but seldom gets the chance to go to the theatre, now is your chance to indulge with her. Going Gold Class is definitely worth the extra cost and mum will love it if you include a glass or two of bubbles along with some food from the Gold Class menu - delivered right to your seat. She’ll definitely appreciate being able to immerse herself in the big screen while you treat her the way she deserves to be treated!
