Great ideas to treat Mum on Mother's Day

Go for a walk

Although spring officially starts the day after Mother’s Day (Monday 20 March), weather-permitting, it could be a great time to get outdoors and enjoy a walk together.

Invite her round for dinner

Remember all those delicious home-cooked meals Mum would make for you as a child? Now’s the time to return the favour.

Host a family game night 

Time to dust off those board games collecting cobwebs in the cupboard and get a little competitive. Scrabble, Cluedo, Battleship, Monopoly – these are all nostalgic games the whole family can enjoy together. And if you can’t all be together in-person, we’re all familiar with Zoom thanks to lockdown, so host a quiz. You could theme this around Mum and see who knows her best.

Pick your own fruit

This activity is especially fun if you have a lot of kids who want to get in on the action. Then, when you all get home, you can whip up a treat for Mom with your selections. (Maybe give her a strawberry in a Champagne glass while she waits.)

Spend time in the garden

For green-fingered mums, there’s nothing better than spending the day in the garden, so roll up your sleeves and join her for an afternoon outside.

Make a scrapbook

Break out those old photo albums, print some of your phone pics and transform them all into something beautiful.

Find a local Farmers Market

There's nothing like waking up with the sun and going to the farmers market on the weekend.

Take her to an art gallery or museum
