On Mother’s Day, it’s important to spoil your mum and show your appreciation for her and everything she does. This year, why not really impress her by treating her to something different? We’ve put together a list of some fool proof ways to treat your mum this Mother’s Day for the ultimate surprise.
Having a meal cooked for you always tastes better, so get hands on in the kitchen and cook a meal for you both. Not only will she be impressed by the extra effort you’ve put in, sitting down to eat it together is great for catching up in the comfort of your own home. If you’re stuck for time, you can whip up a tasty meal in under an hour. Get some inspiration from our top 5 quick spring recipes.
Alternatively, if your cooking skills aren’t quite up to scratch, completely avoid the kitchen and book a table at your mum’s favourite restaurant. This way, you can spend some quality time together whilst letting someone else take care of the rest. Remember to book a table as far in advance as possible too because places tend to get booked up pretty quickly.
Offering to help out with tasks around her home will be appreciated more than you think. Whether that means washing the pots or cleaning the clothes, it will give her a break from daily chores. If you still live at home and do these things anyway, try tidying up the garden, cleaning the windows or even walking the dog. Just find something new to help out with and it won’t go unnoticed.
This Mother’s Day, you could set the tone for years to come by starting a family tradition to celebrate. Whether this is a visit to the cinema, a trip to your local shopping centre or ordering takeaway and watching a film at home, it’s something for you both to look forward to.
When you get older, you naturally end up spending less time with your parents. Even though your mum understands this, she probably misses having you around all the time. Spending some time with your mum on Mother’s Day is one of the best gifts you could give her! Simply popping round to visit for an afternoon to give her your company will leave you both in high spirits. Don’t forget to check out our Mother’s Day gift guide too so you can surprise her with a gift she will love whilst visiting!
