Reminder: It’s Mothering Sunday in the UK on 6th March 2016.
Haven’t managed to find the perfect gift for Mother’s Day? Or left it a little late? Is this reminder the only thing that made you think about it?
Well, don’t worry!
Last minute ideas can save the day and make Mum feel special this Sunday! (Psst: some are free!)
1. Take her out for a local Sunday lunch.
Us Brits love a Sunday lunch, and what’s even better about this idea is there’s no washing up to do!
2. Cook for her.
Making an effort to cook a nice meal for someone is always appreciated. Luckily with late night supermarkets, you can usually go food shopping at any time! There are some great easy recipes online. I’d suggest checking out the BBC Good Food website for inspiration. You can also get great apps!
Mum’s on a diet? No problem, just search for healthy recipes. they’re all there!
3. Home spa.
You might not be able to treat your Mum to a spa experience, but why not try to create one at home? You could run a relaxing bath, or create a foot bath. Put out some lotions and light some candles for added luxury.
4. Make a CD!
Go old school with a mixtape (ok, probably CD) and add all your Mum’s favourite tunes from iTunes or ones she already has. A lot of parents don’t use the likes of Spotify or iTunes for their music, and like to have a great CD for the car!
5. Buy her favourite items.
If you can’t find any luxury or fun gifts and still have time to hit the shops, why not buy her favourite items, such as favourite wine or snack, or something she usually has to buy regularly for herself?
6. Write or create something special.
Do you have a talent such as poetry or art? Why not write something completely new and unique for your Mum? Even if you’re not very confident with your skills, anything homemade is great to receive and can mean much more than shop bought gifts.
You could write about Mum sayings? We have a list! Just click the picture below!
Do you have any more ideas? Anyone reading this is likely to need ideas, so feel free to add some in the comments. Are you a last minute gift-giver or well organised?
