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.

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.
