She’s your number one fan. Your shoulder to cry on. Your one-in-a-million queen. Every mum is special in her own way, but we know on the day that’s dedicated to her it can be difficult to sum up just how much you care in a few words on a card. Well, they say actions speak louder than words, so we’ve sought out the most thoughtful Mother’s Day ideas that’ll show her just how much you care! And the best part is? We’ve got something for every mother or mother figure in your life…
For the Spa Lover
If your mum is in desperate need of some TLC then we bet she’s dropping all those ‘I’d love to get away and go to a spa’ hints. Sure, if you have the budget to make her pampering dreams a reality then go for it, but don’t be disheartened if you can’t cover a weekend away. Why don’t you bring the spa to her? Create a personalised pampering hamper packed with all the goodies she’ll need to activate zen mode. We’ve got the ultimate DIY tutorial.
Or pick her favourite beautifying treatment (nails are a great all-rounder) and book in some time with our in-store experts at the Beauty Studio. That way she can be pampered by the pros, whatever your budget.
For the Foodie
Whoever said ‘the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ clearly hadn’t met a female foodie. The same principles still apply! So if your mum loves spending her evenings cooking up a storm in the kitchen or books up Michelin-star restaurants at any given chance then a food-inspired gift is sure to satisfy her cravings for good grub.
Treat her to a hotel-inspired breakfast, complete with perfectly poached eggs and flaky pastries. And for all the dads out there looking for inspo, the kids will love presenting a classic breakfast in bed. Even if it is something easy like a bowl of yoghurt and granola!
Or treat your mum to an afternoon tea spread of champions as a gift idea or day out idea. Of course, you can create your own cake display at home too if you want that personal touch.
For the Adventurer
If your mum’s idea of a great day out is exploring the great outdoors, then join her on her adventures on Mother’s Day. Book up an activity that she’ll love or maybe opt for something a little outside the box – fruit picking, anyone? Remember, it doesn’t have to be too costly to be considered thoughtful, even joining your mum on her usual dog walk or mapping out a new hiking trail has the personalised touch that will stand out.
For the First-Time Mum
Does this year mark her entry into motherhood? If so, she’s probably playing the role of supermum juggling her pre-baby life with her new responsibilities (and lack of sleep!). Make her first Mother’s Day super special by giving her the VIP treatment. Run her a relaxing bath, put on her favourite playlist, get her favourite book/mag at the ready and light up some scented candles. It’s amazing what an hour of peace can do for the mind, body and soul!
For the Glam Grandma
We bet your mum on Mother’s Day will also be paying a visit to her mum – so don’t miss out your granny this year. Pop over with your beauty kit and give your nan a vlogger-inspired makeover to get her glammed up for the day of fun! Here’s some inspo for a killer smokey eye look:
