Mother’s Day is fast approaching so we’ve put together a list of 10 things to do, which won’t break the bank and that you’ll enjoy just as much as your mum!
It’s officially mum’s day off on 26 March. Celebrate with your very own personal superwoman and make her feel as special as she makes you feel every day…
Go for Afternoon Tea
What is Mother’s Day without a spot of tea and cake? If you and your mum have a sweet tooth this is an absolute must. Check out the deals in your local area and book soon to secure a spot, or why not whip up your own to save the pennies?
Shop Till You Drop
Who doesn’t love a bit of a shopping spree? Whether we’re heading to the boutiques of our local villages or something further afield, we think this is a great way to spend a Mother’s Day.
Visit Your Local Garden Centre
A trip to the Garden Centre is a great, inexpensive way to treat your mum and spend your Sunday morning. Do your research before to make sure there’s a café for your 11 o’clock tea break too!
Take a Walk
This is a lovely free way to spend Mother’s Day. Whether you’re lucky enough to live near a beach, stately home or park, or if it’s simply a stroll round your local village, there’s a route to suit everyone. Plus it’s a great way to build an appetite for a Sunday Roast!
Fancy something a bit more relaxing? Then why not treat your Mum to a pamper day. Depending on your budget you can go all-out to a spa retreat (our friends at SpaBreaks.com have some great deals), or even set up your own at home. Want to get your hands on a spa break for two? Then head over to our Facebook page and enter our competition!
Visit a Gallery or Museum
If you fancy a dose of culture, an afternoon at your local Museum or Gallery is a great way to spend time quality time with your Mum. Plus most of these have free entry, which means more pennies left to spend at the café or gift shop!
Explore Your Local City
Why not hop on a train or bus to a local city or town and do some adventuring? Larger cities usually have organised tours such as an open-top bus to help you discover the local history and landmarks.
Cook Your Mum’s Favourite Dinner
Yes, going to a restaurant might seem like the go-to idea for a Mother’s Day lunch, but making your mum’s favourite meal and hosting with your loved ones means you get the food you want, with the people you love. Now what can beat that?
There are loads of great craft events across the UK including pottery classes, flower arranging and jewellery making. Some of these even include afternoon tea but just make sure you do your research and book in advance.
Have a Lazy Sunday
If you’re not feeling a full day out, we’re pretty sure your mum will just be happy to spend her Sunday with you, even if this means nothing more than relaxing on the sofa with your favourite film.
Whatever you do this Mothering Sunday we hope you have a fantastic time! Tell us what you’re up to in the comments below…
