Mother's Day is the one dedicated day to shower your mum with love and little presents to tell her how much you appreciate her (this is not to say you shouldn't be doing this all the time, but this day is the most important!). Here are some excellent ideas to give your mum the most special day, no matter how last minute you leave it!
1. Bake a cake and serve afternoon tea!
Baking something from scratch is a small but touching way to tell someone you really care about them. If you have children, you could also let everyone help out with the decorating making it a fun family bonding activity. Home-baked goods added to your outdoor tea party is a fun way to spend time with a mother who loves to be around nature and her family. You can give some freshly picked flowers and spend the day relaxing and eating the little treats you've spent time making.
If you haven't spent quality time with your mother for a while, often just having a good catch up, whatever the location will be so lovely. Make it perfect by making the place comfy and cute to show you care. The past few years have been tough on many families with not being able to see each other, so go all out this Mother's Day if you are able. Alternatively, if you won't see your mum this Mother's Day, perhaps arrange a video call. You can spend a few hours talking while making cakes and having the tea party separately but together.
2. Matching LaBante necklaces and a mini boat trip or booze cruise!
If you have any lakes or rivers nearby, a mini cruise is a fun outing to go with your mum. This doesn't have to be on a big fancy yacht; a longboat would be equally entertaining and relaxing! You can choose whether you want it to be a social occasion by selecting a group boat trip or a more personal one with only the two of you. Just imagine how lovely a little trip with only you, your mother and a glass of champagne would be!
You could give her a LaBante heart or star pendant necklace to round the day off. It is the perfect 'I love you' that doesn't need words, and It is sure to get you both feeling very nostalgic and grateful for one another.
3. Relaxing spa day and follow up dinner.
If you both need some peace, what better place than a spa to spend some time together while melting your troubles away. After this, you will feel so refreshed and calm that you will relish the idea of going out for a meal and sharing a bottle of wine with your mum.
Book a nice restaurant with a cuisine you both enjoy to tell your mum you love her! A sweet way to finish the day is a little gift to show her that you appreciate everything she has done for you. Perhaps buying corresponding LaBante clutches so you can play well off of one another. What's more, purchasing twin bags like this will ensure wherever you both are, you always have something to make you feel close to one another.
4. Apple leather shoes and a shopping spree in a city.
If you are your mum and shopaholics or just love walking or exploring, then a city escape is the perfect gift. Walk around the high street while catching up and stop in a little cafe for lunch and a coffee. There is usually some event in a bigger city, particularly on special occasions such as Mother's Day, so maybe be spontaneous and go to one. It could be anything from a comedy show to sculpting experience days! Just have a look around until you see something that might pique both of your interests. Spontaneous outings are always the most fun, so make the day memorable! An excellent way to treat your mum is a nice new pair of LaBante apple leather shoes. She's been walking all day; time to spoil her with some new fancy flats that will not only make her feet happy but the planet too! Being so sustainable, they are the best choice for eco-conscious mums!
