Top nine things to do with your mum on Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is a celebration of our mums, so it’s really important to show her how much she means to you!

But it can be hard to know how to spend the day with her. If you want to treat your mum to a day out or a treat that’s a little different. Our personalised mothers day gifts are always popular! We’ve come up with a selection of ideas we think will be perfect!

It can also be hard if you’re a little strapped for cash on Mother’s Day, so some of our ideas can be done absolutely free of charge!

Go out to her favourite restaurant or café for lunch

If you can’t spoil your mum on Mother’s Day then when can you?! If your mum hasn’t been to her favourite restaurant for a while then booking a table for her and the family is a great surprise treat!

Go for a walk

Of course, this one is dependent on nice weather (unless you and your mum are happy to go trekking in the wind and rain). Think of somewhere local where you can take a wander, or even think about going to a historic castle or the coast for the day to explore and enjoy the day together.

A lot of walks around the UK are completely free to, perfect for keeping the costs down.

Have a picnic

Yet again this one is dependent on good weather, because we’re pretty sure you don’t want to be hanging on to your picnic rug and hamper of sandwiches in gale force winds!

Chances are you haven’t been on a picnic with your mum since you were quite young. So why not surprise her with a hamper full of lovely food and a trip to one of her favourite beauty spots to relax and have lunch together!

Perfect if you’ve got the kids to think about as well – choose somewhere that will keep them occupied for hours and give you the chance to relax too!

Watch her favourite films

Perfect if Mother’s Day turns out to be cold and rainy! Get cosy on the sofa with your favourite cinema treats and watch your mum’s favourite films together. Who knows, you might discover some brilliant films you didn’t know about, and your mum is sure to love sharing her favourite films with you! Why not enjoy one of our Personalised Mother's Day Gifts such as personalised retro sweets or a personalised drink with chocolate. These are an ideal accompaniment to a great film!

Have a weekend away

If your mum has always wanted to visit a particular city or a quaint countryside village, why not treat her to a special Mother’s Day weekend getaway and take her there. You can take some time to explore or you can indulge at a spa hotel or fancy restaurant. The options are endless!

Book a special experience together

Why not treat your mum to something she’s never done before? There’s a whole host of different activities you could surprise her with, from a segway experience to perfume or cocktail making!

So whether your mum loves the outdoors or would relish the chance to indulge in a pampering treat, there’s something for every kind of mum when it comes to experience days.

Cook lunch at home

If mum is always slaving away in the kitchen, why not take your turn and cook up a treat for Mother’s Day?

Find out what her favourite meal is and prepare it as a special surprise for her. She’ll love that she can take her mind off cooking for the day and put her feet up while you prepare the meal for this special day!

If you’re stuck for ideas on what to cook, why not try something she’s never had before as an even bigger surprise.

Breakfast in bed

Let her wake up to a special breakfast served up in bed! Serve up all her favourites on a tray and make it extra special by popping some little flowers or a card onto the tray too, so she can eat her breakfast and open her Mother’s Day card at the same time.

Do some housework before she wakes up

If a messy house drives your mum mad, get the house gleaming before she even gets down the stairs on Mother’s Day.

It will be a great relief for her to realise she hasn’t got to worry about cleaning up anything and that she can kick back and relax on her special day!
