Novel Ways To Make Mother’s Day

Naturally, you are going to buy a card and maybe even flowers. But what about some ideas to make your mum’s day a bit more special?

Here are a run-down of some more alternative suggestions.

  • MAKE OVER AND PAMPERING SESSION

Arrange for mum and a plus one – it could be you or one of her friends – to go to a spa, beauty parlour or hairdressers for the day.

Beauty salons now offer full day treatments, with champagne and drinks thrown in.

But the best part will be you arranging for mum to put her feet up for an hour or two. It will be even better if you can get a friend of hers to go with her.

  • DO THE CHORES

Sometimes, showing your love does not have to cost money and the best presents are the ones that you can’t wrap up.

Why not offer to do some household chores or other jobs that need doing around the place? Better still, why not just do them and then surprise her with the beautifully cleaned house or mowed lawn.

If your mum is always running from pillar to post, juggling jobs, try and see what they are and if there is any way you can take on some of them, at least for the day.

Does she do a lot childcare? Could you help out with some babysitting, if that is the case?

  • GO ON A PICNIC

We know that it is only March, but you never know, the British weather might be good enough for a picnic!

All the same, it might be a good idea to make a contingency plan, should the weather not play ball. We suggest folding chairs, wind breakers and umbrellas.

  • BOOK A COOKERY CLASS TOGETHER

Instead of just going out for a meal (nothing wrong with that by the way!) you could go one better and actually learn how to cook a whole new dish together.

Many restaurants now run masterclasses with top chefs and they make not only tasty outcomes, but are good fun for the evening.

Whether it is Mexican, Indian or Tapas there is bound to be restaurant near you offering a course in how to do it authentically.

  • GET AN OLD PHOTO RESTORED

Is there an old family photo that you could have framed? Something with sentimental value or long lost? Her wedding photo perhaps or one of her family?

Mother’s Day is all about revisiting memories and digging up old family treasures.

  • HOST A FAMILY GET TOGETHER

Sometimes, there doesn’t have to be a specific reason for a get together. It shouldn’t have to be a funeral or a wedding to have a meet up.

Especially if your family or your mother’s side of it live a long way from each other, a chance to reconnect could be a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift that money couldn’t buy.

  • OR A SURPRISE PARTY

Likewise, any meetups don’t have to be limited to just family ones. If a family get together is either impractical or not appropriate for your mum, how about getting her friends together instead?

Especially if your mum doesn’t see much of her old friends, this could be one of the best ideas you can do for her.

A surprise party may be just the ticket to put a smile on her face.
