Guest Post: Give Your Mum the Perfect Mother’s Day

Your mum has been there for you every day of your life so far, and will continue to be for as long as she can. Reverse the roles for one day and surprise her with the perfect Mother’s Day from dawn till dusk.

Champagne Breakfast

How many times has mum made you breakfast? Return the favour and whisk her away for a very special champagne breakfast on Mothering Sunday morning. Alternatively, bring the champagne breakfast to mum – start with melon, granola or yogurt, move on to a full English or Eggs Benedict, finish with sweet pancakes and wash it down with something sparkly (and perhaps a splash of orange juice if required!).

The Perfect Gift

Over breakfast, surprise your mum with the perfect gift to show her what she means to you. Sterling silver charm bracelets are a great choice as a simple starter bracelet can be personalised with charms to suit your mum’s uniqueness. If you have siblings, why not choose a charm each, so your mum has an individual token of affection from each of her sons or daughters?

Family Photo

Mother’s Day isn’t just about your mum – it’s also about her mum and the other women in the family. Once you’ve given mum a morning to remember, share her with the rest of your loved ones and get the whole family together. Commemorate the occasion with a family snapshot that you can frame for your mum to treasure.

A Countryside Walk

In the afternoon, why not head out en-mass for a countryside walk? Spring will just be peeking out, so take advantage of the milder weather and the pretty spring blooms with a stroll out somewhere lovely. A nearby country park, coastal path or woodland trail would fit the bill perfectly. Alternatively, if your mum’s idea of exercise is a stroll around the nearest shopping centre, why not treat her to a spot of retail therapy? Some department stores even offer personal shopping experiences to really make mum feel special for the day.

Dinner for Ten

Get the whole family together for a big Mother’s Day dinner, and surround your mum with those she loves and who love her back. Whether you go out to a fancy restaurant or enjoy a roast at home doesn’t matter – all that matters is that mum can enjoy time with her loved ones over a delicious meal - one that someone else has cooked! Mother’s Day offers the perfect opportunity to put your mum first and treat her to a lovely day to remember.

  1. How sweet! I now wish Reflecting back to decades ago I wish I had thought to do something like that back while my mum was still around (I'm old). You won't be sorry later for being sweet to her now. It's a very thoughtful idea.
