If you’re a mum reading this then here is an article to print out and leave lying around in obvious places, if you are a dad/daughter/son read on quick and take notes!
Get The Day Off To A Good Start
Make sure mum gets a lie in on the 15th March. Whether it is breakfast in bed or a leisurely brunch, make mum’s favourite. Poached eggs on English muffins, blueberry pancakes, fruit salad with granola and yogurt are all good bets. Plus don’t let her do the clearing up!
Whether handpicked daffodils, blowing the budget on a big bouquet or a lovely potted plant, brighten up Mum’s day by giving her flowers.
Homemade Mother’s Day Card
All parents will testify that the effort that goes into a homemade card blows a shop brought card out of the water every time. Dads should check out thisisnessie.com for adorable handfinished cards though. Scatter in some heart confetti for a sweet final touch.
Easy to make and a fun activity for a rainy afternoon, you can’t go wrong with some yummy homemade truffles. Plus you can make in advance and freeze them so you can be free to enjoy Mother’s Day with your mum. We love these delicious Mint Chocolate Truffles from BBC’s Good Food; they’re are sure to be a winner!
Capture Happy Memories
A thoughtful gift for mum would be to put a photo of the children or the family in a beautiful frame. A creative alternative would be for the children to design the frame themselves. Remember to take photos of today to frame for next time!
A Mother’s Day Spa Bath
A voucher for a spa would be amazing but we all know they don’t come cheap. Running mum a hot bath with some new bubble bath, lighting candles and stocking up on her favourite magazines will get you some serious brownie points. Why not make her some homemade Himalayan Salt Scrub to make her feel truely pampered?
