With Mother's Day coming up, it's time to get creative and not just gift mum the standard flowers and card on her special day! Here's 5 ideas for things you can do with your mum - one of them or all of them - to spend quality time with her instead!
1. Breakfast in Bed with Breakfast at Tiffany's
Set your alarm and high tail it over to your mum's place to prepare her breakfast in bed (with all the tea and trimmings), cosy up next to her and pop on the Audrey classic film "Breakfast at Tiffany's." Of course, I'm sure a little blue box wouldn't go astray either, but box or not, I'm sure this is one many mum's will love!
2. Walk & Talks in Nature
3. Lunch in a New Location
We can be sticklers for routine, and for a lot of us, especially when that involves food. Pick up your mum and go for a drive this Mother's Day in search of a new lunchtime menu to try together. Maybe you'll venture to another town, maybe you'll brave a lunchtime cooking class! Who know's...but make it a gastronomical change by having an adventurous attitude.
4. Afternoon At-Home Pamper
5. Kick Her Out of the Kitchen!
Whether you've spent the day doing 1-4 with mum or you're starting here, this is one she is sure to adore! Kick her out of the kitchen and come prepared to cook her up a storm...well, a delicious meal made with love! The online ordering meals kits can help make this a cinch if you're not a master-chef by any means, or if you're feeling confident, try your hand at her favourite dish. Set the table with care and attention and sit down to enjoy the meal together, talking about the peaks of your day - maybe like old times, or maybe like never before! There's no time like the present to start a new tradition. And of course, the rules state that you are most definitely cleaning up afterwards.
