Whether she is your Mother or not, Mother’s day is a great way to celebrate the Mum in your life. Why not take some time to plan something a bit special? Sure, you can order flowers and take her out for lunch and there’s nothing wrong with that! But with a little thought you could do something unique, original and even fun. Something that will be remembered. Here are a few thoughts on the day and how you could handle it.
Make some time away
Why not think about going away for a night or even a weekend? You could plan a trip that involves some exciting activities. For example a night out at a posh hotel in town could be supplemented with a show and dinner. Why not taking her to one of the big cities and throw in the chance to do a little sightseeing and shopping?
It’s straightforward these days to book a show and a hotel in the same package. If you don’t have time to organise this now then simply book ahead and slip the voucher into a card. This might be the case if there was a particular show that you wanted to see. If a quiet and relaxing weekend was more your Mum’s style, why not make the focus a lovely country house hotel with all the trimmings?
Pampering is always fun
Allowing someone to be pampered is always going to be a treat. You could arrange a massage for example. There are plenty of spa options and relaxing packages that you could choose. Would a beauty makeover appeal to your mother? Choose nails or hair or how about a wonderful facial treatment? You could supplement these with some appropriate gifts. From sumptuous hampers to all manner of unique gifts, there’s plenty to choose from. Beauty products are always going to be welcome.

If you want to to do something more personal why not wrap up a bundle of scented candles and bath treats? You could include some music and aromatherapy products. That way your mother could make some time for herself whenever she felt like it.
Say it with food
Why not simply book a table at a fabulous restaurant of one of her favorite haunts? You could take this further by buying her something special to wear. Then again what could be more unique than going to the trouble of cooking up a special dish? Creating a restaurant at your house or flat could come as a complete surprise! Having a bit of time together could be just the special gift that your Mum would really appreciatMemory book
If you had the time it could be an original idea to collect some photographs and momentoes together. You could make a unique scrapbook tribute. If that feels too complicated, just make your own card. Take some time to write something personal and heartfelt on the inside.
The truth is all the gifts in the world are simply tokens. Lovely thoughts as they may be, they won’t replace the fact that you have taken the time to arrange them and fete someone very special indeed.
