1. A fresh take on flowers.

Roses or wild flowers? Or something beautiful to plant in the garden? Show you care, find out what she loves.

2. Sweets for the sweet.

If your mum loves beautifully gift wrapped chocs or other tasty treats it’s a winning gift, but choose a different gift if she’s on a health kick.

3.Eating out.

This is your chance to make her day. Book well in advance, it shows you’ve thought ahead and will make her feel special.

4. Days out.

Luxury day at the Spa, a visit to a stately home… or a skydive? Whatever you do, remember, she just wants to spend time with you, so make sure there’s plenty of opportunity to talk and enjoy each other’s company too.

5. Give her a break.

Perhaps your mum just wants to be waited on for a change. Get her to put her feet up in her favourite recliner chair, and keep those cups of tea (or perhaps even the odd cheeky glass of wine) coming. A mum’s favourite words on Mother’s Day? “Let me do that for you”!

6. Eating in.

Making mum a luxury breakfast in bed or a really special family dinner is a thoughtful idea. Just make sure you remember to do the washing up afterwards!
