To answer Beyoncé’s question, “Who run the world?”, we say, “Moms”. Because mothers do so much every day, we’ve come up with 10 Mother’s Day ideas to celebrate your mama. The best part is that they can be memorable experiences for just the two of you, or you can invite the whole family to join in.
1. Treat Her to an Indulgent Meal 🥘
Whether you cook your mother’s favourite dish or take her to a restaurant, ensure she enjoys the day off by taking care of the details.
Read these online reviews before booking the perfect restaurant to spoil your mom. Although it’s for romantic restaurants, this Hellopeter blog can help if you need help knowing where to begin your research.
2. Take a Class Together🎨
Learn something new while creating lifelong memories. For example, get your creativity flowing in a watercolour or flower arrangement class, spend time together learning the hottest tips in a cooking class. Or perhaps you’re an active duo who prefers a hot yoga, pilates or dance lesson. Remember to check the reviews so you know what to expect!
3. Bake Her Favourite Cake (And Eat it Too!) 🍰
Whether it’s chocolate mousse, carrot with cream cheese frosting, or lemon meringue, bake your mom’s favourite cake with an extra pinch of love. If you don’t fancy yourself a baker, order a delicious treat to share with your mother from a tried, tested and approved bakery in your area.
4. Go on a Walk or Hike in Nature 🍃
Take time to catch up and reconnect with your mom without any distractions. Enjoy the precious gift of time with your mother, whether it’s a day-long hike or a stroll around the park. She’ll appreciate you giving her your undivided attention! Just make sure she’s up for something to get the heart racing first.
5. Picnic Somewhere Beautiful 🧺
Pack a basket of your mom’s favourite treats and set out for a beautiful scenic backdrop for a Mother’s Day celebration. Invite the family along or spend undisturbed quality time together. You could bring your reading books or sketch pads or even spoil her with an outdoor movie experience.
Don’t forget to do some research before you head out. Check the weather forecast and online reviews to make sure your picnic is at the best possible spot.
6. Get Stuck into a Home Project 🔨
Have some fun surprising your mom with a newly decorated room, a restored piece of furniture or an organised and decluttered kitchen. Alternatively, include your mom and take on a new home project together. Visit your local nursery and plant that herb garden she’s been dreaming about or a new tree commemorating Mother’s Day this year.
7. Go for a Tasting 🍷
Choose from wine, gin, beer, bubbly, or chocolate tastings to celebrate and have fun with your mom. With an endless list of tastings and pairings to try, you’re bound to find something everyone will enjoy. Just don’t forget to read reviews and look on social media to get an idea of what each experience is really like before making a decision. And if you can’t find a suitable tasting, you can always make your own at home, with ratings and all.
8. Watch Something Together 📺
Make watching a movie at home the ultimate experience by letting your mom choose the film, serving all her favourite snacks and allowing her to put her feet up and relax (literally). Or find a restaurant that serves live entertainment with the meal. Perhaps your mom would really enjoy a local production, comedy show or performance, so check what’s on around you to make the most of the day.
9. Pamper Session 💅🏽
Treat your mother dearest to a day at the spa so she can enjoy all the pampering she deserves. Make it a date for two and join her at a nail bar or hair salon for the ultimate gift of beauty and company. Remember to check reviews before you book your appointment to not be let down.
10. Weekend Getaway 🏕️
Escape busy schedules and get away for a night or two together. She’ll love getting to spend time catching up, having a good laugh and making new memories. Make it a family camping affair or an intimate gift to celebrate your mom.
