Mother’s Day is a special day to celebrate the female role models and caregivers in your life. Whether you have a close relationship with your mum or found a mother figure elsewhere, the day is about celebrating that relationship in a way that means something to you both. If you are struggling for ideas, never fear. Here are five ways you can make Mother’s Day special on a range of budgets.
Plan an Afternoon Tea
Afternoon tea is a fantastic way to spend time with your mother figure. You can do it in a big group, but it is equally as sweet with just the two of you. Whatever you pick, make sure to do it right. Plan the menu, or book into your mother’s favourite restaurant. Tell her the dress code (dresses and hats, of course) and don’t forget the champagne!
Pick the Perfect Bouquet
Mother’s Day flowers are a popular choice of gift, and it’s easy to see why. You can find a range of flowers to suit any colour and style preference, and they are one of the nicest presents to receive on any occasion. Take your time to think about what bouquet would best suit your mum and try remember it’s not about how much you spend but how thoughtful the arrangement and sentiment behind the gift is too.
Try Something Completely New
Alternatively, you could go really far outside of the box and take a gamble on something new. There are so many activity days out there that you can book in advance and find great deals on specifically for mother’s day. Anything from skydiving to making pottery is an option, and there are no rules as to what you can and cannot do. If you think your mum would like to try it out, or maybe she’s even mentioned something she’s been longing to do, this would be a really thoughtful way to spend the day together.
Make Her a Sentimental Gift
Sentimental gifts are often great ways to capture the heart. You have so much choice in this category too. Why not make a memory box filled with all your days outs and key moments? Or plan a day out centred around a key memory or experience that you’ve shared together. Lots of mothers will appreciate the big thought and feeling behind this type of gift.
Vintage jewelry such as rings is another great example of a gift that can capture the heart of your partner. These rings often have a unique and timeless style, with a history that can add to their sentimental value. They can also be a symbol of your commitment to your partner and your desire to create a lasting and meaningful relationship. If your mom loves all things vintage, a vintage ring may be the perfect choice for her.
Give Her a Day to Herself
While it might still be seen as a little controversial, some mothers might just want some time alone! Often, this is a great present for a busy, stressed-out mum juggling many eggs in multiple baskets. It could be time at the spa, or just everyone clearing out of the house for the afternoon and leaving her to a lovely filled up bubble bath and a strategically placed hot chocolate or glass of bubbly. Looking after mum is easy to do if you listen to what your gut is trying to tell you. You know her best, after all, so figuring out what will make her day special should be easy if you sit down and think.
