Life can get so busy and it’s easy to get bogged down with the day to day life admin and repetitive jobs, especially for us Mums. It’s nice to be able to do something out of the normal routine and have a little time to re-connect with each other or even just yourself. So this year why not try treating a Mum to some time this Mothers day! Whether it is your own Mum, the mother to your children or a single parent Mum you would like to support, all of these ideas for a gift of time for Mothers Day, I’m sure, will be very gratefully received.
I don’t know many people who would say no to a spa day! Help a Mum to escape the current cold weather by heading off to somewhere like Urban Retreat where she can be pampered in a Moroccan Spa. The Hammam Ritual sounds amazing, a luxury treatment like no other inspired by centuries old ancestral Moroccan beauty customs where your mind, body and skin will be purified during a luxury bathing ritual in their hot hammam room. Go together, relax and enjoy each other’s company with no distractions. Well apart from deciding which experience to go for next. Then head out of the Spa situated in Harrods, central London for some shopping, a pretty perfect end to a relaxing day away from the norm.
From local pubs to Expensive restaurants, most will have a special Mother’s Day menu. Get dressed up and go out for a nice meal together or surprise her with her favourite take out. If you aren’t local you could even send them a voucher to use.
If money is a little tight, have a search through your local Groupon for an experience voucher. I recently picked up a cream tea for two in my favourite coffee shop for not much more than it would usually be for a coffee and a sandwich there. Obviously I can’t wait to use it!
Rather than a bottle of Gin, have a search for a local Gin tasing night and go together. Or invite a Mum around for a Gin evening and create some gin cocktails for each other.
If a Mum is the outdoorsy type, venture out to a local National Trust place for the day together, or find a local Forest or Country Park to have a stomp and a chat around. Then when you have finished, grab a hot drink and a slice of cake, which everyone knows is actually the best part of having a walk.
If you really want to get a Mum a present for Mothers Day head to Etsy to support small businesses and for more quirky gifts. Browns Family Jewellers for gorgeous jewellery or 31Dover for her favourite tipple.
