Celebrating Mother's Day
This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 14th March, and at time of writing, it has been announced that by then two people will be allowed to meet in an outdoor public space for a coffee, picnic or catch-up.
We’ve compiled our top treats for your mum, aunt, sister and all the amazing women in your life this Mother’s Day and ways you can celebrate.
If you’re living in the same household or support bubble as the special woman in your life, why not start the day off with a homemade brunch. Bring the café to her with some of her favourite morning treats. It could be a full English, avocado on toast, pancakes or fruit and compote. If you don’t live near your mum, aunt, grandmother or sister, some local businesses may even do brunch by delivery! Order yourself one too and catch up over zoom.
If your local restrictions allow, why not wrap up warm, grab a coffee and a pastry and walk to a local beauty spot. Make the most of the day with a dose of fresh air, a view and a catch-up! Maybe she loves gardening? You could offer to roll up your sleeves and help - spending the day together doing something she loves. If meeting up isn’t an option, why not schedule time to both go for a walk simultaneously and catch up alfresco over face time.
If your special person is missing the spa or beauty treatments, why not bring the spa to her. From luxurious bubble baths, relaxing candles and nourishing face masks, make sure she has everything she needs to feel relaxed from the comfort of her own home.
However you decide to spend Mother’s Day this year, make sure it’s one to remember with our collection of tried and tested Mother’s Day favourite gifts:
