Mother’s Day is more than fine dining, fancy outings, and weekends away. The day is all about celebrating maternal bonds, appreciating our mothers and their role in shaping our societies. Low key Mother’s Days are equally as special and can provide an even more intimate setting to showcase your appreciation for the special lady in your life. Have a look at some of the activities below for some inspiration!
Afternoon tea at home
Take advantage of the increasing range of restaurant meal kits and take away services so you can bring the afternoon tea to her! If you’re a baker at heart, you can even make a winning spread yourself. Whether you opt for something fun like Cutter and Squidge or a little more luxurious with Fortnum & Mason, you can’t go wrong with a traditional afternoon tea!

Step away from the screen and back to basics, with the beautiful art of letter writing. Put pen to paper and share your favourite memory or even a funny story with your loved one. You may even be surprised at how well a piece of paper will go down!
We may think the world of our mothers but how often do we put it on paper…

Make a Photobook
If your mum is quite the traditionalist and still pulls out your childhood photos at every opportunity, this gift is perfect for her! Utilise years of photos saved on your phone that you’ve been meaning to print out and surprise her with her very own photobook! We recommend Papier as an easy-to-use website, to help you get the finished product directly to her front door.

DIY Home Spa Evening
Dim the lights and get the incense burning, transform your space into the tranquil spa. Pop some bubbles and play some relaxing tunes, use this as an opportunity to try new luxurious products and spend some quality time with your mum… or if she deserves some undisturbed alone time, draw a warm bath surrounded by her favourite scented candles.
