Mother’s Day 2018 is just around the corner on Sunday 11th March. Whether you’ll be celebrating with mum, step-mum, nan or another super woman in your life, you want to show her how much she means to you. Flowers or a box of chocolate are sure to be appreciated, but there are so many more ways to make her day special. So we’ve come up with some creative Mother’s Day gifts and even activities for some full-on family fun. From cakes to walks to bubble baths, these Mother’s Day ideas are bound to put a smile on her face.
1. Send Her a Card
Sometimes the simplest gestures are the most personal and a handwritten card is always a winner. On Zazzle, you can even personalise Mother’s Day cards with names or photos.
2. Make Her a Photo Gift
Go through those old photos and pick out the ones that will make her smile or laugh. Use the best ones to create a photo collage or upload them to make photo mugs, canvas, key rings and more.
3. Plan a Pampering Session
Book a mani/pedi or spa for you both. Or just pick up her favourite beauty products, run a bubble bath, pour a glass of fizz and let her relax for an hour or two.
4. Share a Story
Give her your favourite book that she hasn’t read. Write her a sweet note in the front cover explaining why you think she will love it too.
5. Take Afternoon Tea
Get dressed up and head into town for a classic afternoon tea at a fancy hotel or tea room.
6. Or, Make Your Own
Bake (or buy) scones and cakes. Add jam, clotted cream, some mini-sandwiches and a range of high-end teas. Set a special table with custom plates, napkins and even a tea pot!
7. Have a Movie Marathon
Camp out on the sofa to watch her favourite films. Add popcorn, drinks and blankets for a perfect girls’ night in.
8. Make Sweet Treats
If she has a sweet tooth, why not make your own truffles, fudge or other treats rather than picking up a selection box. Dress them up with custom gift wrap like favour bags, stickers and ribbon.
9. Play a Game
Gather the family and play a board game, a cards session or, if you’re feeling active and there are lots of you, a team sport!
10. Give Her the Day Off
Let her lie in, get her breakfast in bed then give the whole day off, while you do any cooking, cleaning, gardening etc.
11. Go For a Walk
Set out as a family on a hike or just a walk in park. Stop off in a nice old country pub and treat her to Mother’s Day lunch, or bring a picnic if it’s sunny!
12. Prepare a Toast
Bring over her favourite bottle of wine and make a heartfelt toast to everything she does for you. Enjoy a glass or two while reminiscing over your funniest family memories. Add a personalised wine label for a special touch.
