Make Your Mum feel loved this Mother's day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and so, now is the perfect time to start thinking about how you will make the day special for the number one lady in your life: Mum. Mother’s Day isn’t about the gifts; it’s about showing your mum just how much you (and your little ones) love and appreciate her and what she does for you. So, with that in mind, below are some ideas and suggestions for how you can make your mum feel loved this Mother’s Day and put a smile on her face.

Plan to spend the day with her

Plan to spend the day altogether as a family , you can do this by including mum and the rest of your family to members to join you on the day. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing, just as long as it allows you to have lots of quality time your mum and your children. Or, if your children are young and don’t really understand about Mother’s Day just yet, why not treat your mum to a lunch out or a pamper day at a spa, just the two of you? Think how nice it would be to have some one-on-one time with her. There are plenty of websites like Groupon, for example, that offers discounted spa days, so it’s more than worth having a look.

Get the kids to make her cards

Obviously, you will want to get your mum a card but why not get the kids to make her one too? The chances are that they will be making you one anyway, so why not get them to make their grandma one too? Mother’s Day isn’t just about celebrating mothers; it’s about celebrating all the most important women in our lives, from our mothers to our grandmothers, aunts and even the special friends in our lives.

Pick the perfect present

When it comes to picking a gift for your mum, think about the types of things that she likes. Is she a major foodie and would appreciate a gourmet food hamper? Is she a bath bomb lover and would love a selection of handmade bath bombs? Does she love wearing perfume - would she appreciate a new bottle of her favourite scent from thefragranceshop? Is she mad about chocolate and would love a box of her favourite chocolates? Think about the types of gifts that your mum would appreciate and find her the perfect thing. If you’re stuck for ideas, take the time to have a browse online for ideas and inspiration.

Bake Cupcakes

As a little extra treat, why not bake your mum some cupcakes, with the help of your little ones of course? If your mum isn’t a fan of cupcakes, find another sweet treat to make her, such as chocolate brownies, fruity flapjacks, or fudge. If you’re stuck for ideas, you’re sure to find plenty of inspiration on Pinterest, so take the time to have a browse on there.

There you have it, a few simple ways to make your mum feel loved on Mother’s Day and put a smile on her face.

Love them & leave them by Sue Shepherd

About Love Them and Leave Them: Sometimes you have to leave the one you love … sometimes you’re the one who’s left behind. The new heart-warming and heart-breaking romantic comedy from the No.1 bestselling author of Doesn’t Everyone Have a Secret?

On his way home, Ed makes a split-second decision that changes the lives of all those who love him.

Six years on, Ed’s daughter, Jessie, is stuck in a job with no prospects, her dreams never fulfilled. It will take more than her unreliable boyfriend, Chris, and temperamental best friend, Coco, to give her the confidence to get her life back on track.

But what if Ed had made another decision? It could all have been so different …

Six years on, Ed’s daughter, Jessica, has a successful career, loving boyfriend, Nick, and a keen eye on her dream home. But when new clients, a temperamental Coco, and her unreliable boyfriend, Chris, walk into her life, Jessica’s perfect world soon starts to unravel.

Love Them and Leave Them is a story of love, families, friendship and a world of possibilities. Whichever decision Ed makes, the same people are destined to come into his daughter’s life, sometimes in delightfully different ways. And before they can look forward to the future, they will all have to deal with the mistakes of the past.

 Want to know more? Below is an extract from Love them & leave them to tease you into the novel, if you are like me and  love getting tasters for books before you get stuck in, have a read......


There are moments in all our lives when we make important decisions ‒ applying for our dream job, moving house, deciding to start a family, to name just a few. These moments are huge, and they don’t pretend to be anything less.
On the other hand, there are other moments that are just as noteworthy, and yet they masquerade as trivia. We make choices all the time. Left or right? Stay or go? Choices that appear insignificant, when in reality they may be just as pivotal as the ‘important’ ones. The consequences of these seemingly insignificant choices can be far reaching, and can, on occasion, affect people we’ll never even meet.
