How to make your mum feel extra special on Mother’s Day

Mothering Sunday takes place this year on 11 March, so why not plan something extra special to show your mum exactly how much you love her.

Here are our top tips to help you demonstrate just how much you appreciate everything she does for you, without breaking the bank.

Make her breakfast in bed

Get up early and spend some time in the kitchen preparing a delicious breakfast, just the way your mum likes it – find out if she prefers a full English breakfast with all the trimmings or a continental style breakfast full of fresh fruit, pastries and cereals.

And, if you really want to go the extra mile, make up the bed the night before with some beautiful new sheets.

Don’t forget the freshly made coffee!

Surround her with the people she loves

If your mum loves to socialise, lay the table with your finest linen, adorn it with fresh flowers and gather her family and best friends to make a real fuss of her. Prepare a meal, pop the champers and let the conversation flow.

Put together a personalised gift hamper

Gather an assortment of all your mum’s favourite treats and surprise her on Sunday morning – think books, lotions and potions, chocolate, wine and more!

Get cosy on the couch

If you’ve moved out long along, sometimes quality time with your mum is the best gift of all. So order a takeaway, find your mum’s favourite film on Netflix, plump up the cushions and cuddle up on the sofa under a warm throw to chat away the evening together.

Run a bubble bath

Sometimes all your mum wants is a little bit of alone time… so run a bath, light some candles, pour her a glass of wine, gift her with some gorgeously soft towels or a new dressing gown, and leave her to relax.
