Top 10 things to do for Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is the perfect excuse to celebrate your mum. Want to pamper her to the max on march 10th 2013? You needn’t splurge on costly mothers day presents. From yummy homemade cream tea to a mother and daughter photoshoot, here are a few mothers day ideas guaranteed to put a big fat sunshine smile on your dear old mum’s face…

Say it with Flowers

What’s the point in buying your mum a bouquet when she can easily make her own? Send her off on a mother’s day floristry workshop where she can learn to make a beautiful centrepiece to take home with her. Alternatively, plump for personalised flowers – simply add her name and a special message to the ribbon, and she’ll smile from ear to ear. If your budget allows it, take her out for a spot of lunch afterwards – the perfect mothers day gift!

Whip up a Cream Tea

Sure, taking mum out for tea is a sure-fire way to impress, but if you’re up for earning double the brownie points, prepare a nice spread yourself. Bake a batch of english scones, some chocolate muffins or – even better – a carrot cake. Dish up some smoked salmon sarnies and serve tea in your prettiest china, and you’re onto a winner.

Keep Her Sweet

While a box of choccies makes a great gift for mothers day, why not push the boat out and get your mum something personalised? numerous online retailers stock yummy bars, which can be customised with any name of your choice plus a special message on the stylish bar wrap. There’s no better way to say a sweet ‘n’ chocolatey “happy mother’s day“!

Do your Bit 

Can’t stretch to a costly pressie? The best mothers day gift would be the gift of your time. How about washing her car, showing her how to set up a facebook account, gardening, clearing out the loft, vacuuming… the list is endless.

Adopt an Animal 

Does she love animals? Then adopt a meerkat for mum, a horse, panda or even a shark for her. Your mum will receive a personalised certificate, a poster, welcome letter, fact sheets to name just a few, and even a tour discount voucher so she can visit her adopted animal in person.

Make her Something

They say the best mother’s day gifts are the ones that come straight from the heart. Remember when you were little, you used to give your mum tissue-paper flowers, make cards and draw pictures of her in crayon? Get yourself a card-making kit and create a homemade card; make a movie featuring messages from all the family; prepare a handwritten letter telling your mum how much you love her. if she’s into music, make her a cd of all her favourite songs or if she’s more of a sweet-tooth, craft her a gorgeous gift box for some tasty chocolates or sweets.
