We know that picking the perfect Mother’s Day gift can be challenging at the best of times. With the event set to be different this year, many traditional gift ideas like spa weekends and afternoon teas are also off the cards.
Thankfully, we’re here to make this year extra special with our guide to celebrating Mother’s Day at home. Whether you’re part of the same household or enjoying virtual get-togethers, we’ve got plenty of ways to ensure that your mum, grandma or mum-like figure receives the 5-star treatment they deserve.
How To Celebrate Mother’s Day At Home
This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 14th March, meaning you’ve still got enough time to plan your surprise. It’s safe to say that our loved ones deserve something special – particularly after the past 12 months!
If you’re struggling to make Mother’s Day a standout event, we’ve got you covered. From making breakfast in bed and sending a pamper box, to organising a virtual bake-off, scroll down to find out how to celebrate Mother’s Day at home.
1. Make Breakfast In Bed
Mother’s Day is all about treating your nearest and dearest. If you are part of the same household, skip the annual gift buying panic and give your present a personal touch by making breakfast in bed.
Whether she prefers pancakes, pastries or scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, start the day by cooking a plate full of her favourite breakfast goodies. Compliment their favourite dish by serving the surprise on your best tableware. A touching gift that comes straight from the heart, breakfast in bed is sure to put a smile on her face.
2. Organise A Virtual Film Night
If you can’t meet up in person, give film night a makeover by organising a virtual event from the comfort of your own home. We’ve all enjoyed our fair share of screen time this year, so why not do it “alongside” your mum for a fun twist?
For an extra special touch, send her a present parcel including a cosy pair of pyjamas and a mug to set the scene for a movie marathon. You may not be in the same room, but you can still share memorable film moments with a cup of hot chocolate and stylish PJs!
3. Set Up A Pamper Plan
Relaxing spa weekends are a popular Mother’s Day gift. Luckily, you don’t need to spend a fortune to give your loved one an indulgent spa experience. Instead, bring the spa to them with a personalised pamper plan.
If you’re living together, lay out a spa-ready spread of cucumber slices, hot towels and face masks to help her kick back and relax. You can also post her a personalised pamper box filled with calming candles, fluffy slippers and soothing spa treatments to make her feel like she’s lounging in luxury.
4. Get Baking For Mother’s Day
Mums who can’t resist a slice of something sweet will love being surprised with a Mother’s Day bake. From brownies and banana bread to cookies and cupcakes, get baking to create a homemade gift that tastes just as good as it looks! For a time-saving tip recruit mini chefs (the kids) to help decorate!
Don’t worry if you can’t deliver your cake in person. Turn the event into a virtual bake-off instead! Simply agree on a recipe, set a time limit and both give it your best shot before crowning a virtual star baker. Finish off with a cup of tea, a slice (or two!) of cake and a video call catch up.
