It’s a fact that mothers, like anyone, appreciate gifts. And there’s nothing like the warmth of seeing Mum’s face light up as she unwraps a present, knowing you appreciate everything she’s done. But while gifts to treasure are special, why not power up the Mother’s Day goodness with some money can’t buy meaningful moments? Read on for inspiration and celebrate mum with the goodness she deserves.

Give mum the joy of you
The most precious gift you can give this Mother's Day is your time. Spend the morning together having a delicious breakfast, going for a walk or doing something she loves. It’s a great opportunity to remind Mum just how much you appreciate and love her.

Give back to meaningful causes
Consider making Mother's Day a day of giving by volunteering for a cause that’s close to mum’s heart. Whether it’s a food bank, local charity or women’s shelter, it’s a meaningful gesture that makes a real difference.

Bake something beautiful

It doesn’t have to be fancy. Taking the time to make baked goods, whether it’s muffins, cake or cookies, then making a tea and giving them to mum to eat and enjoy is a delicious way of expressing your love. Breakfast in bed, a picnic in the park or a dinner together at a local restaurant is also a meaningful way to connect.

Capture special Moments

Print some snaps and put them in an album to remind mum of the many special times you’ve shared. iPhone photos are all well and good, but having a book to flip through and reminisce over is a gift mum will cherish for life.

Give mum a luxe treat

Buy mum a spa day or massage to help her relax and unwind. It the perfect way to ensure she prioritises self-care and knows you value her wellbeing.

Make a special card

Mum knows you love her, but there’s nothing like seeing it in writing. Make mum a card that expresses how you feel, making sure to include all the reasons why she’s so special. Ignite your creativity, and get the grandkids to do the same. Then present your feelings to the woman of the moment as she reads about the many and varied ways she’s loved and appreciated. Bonus points if you write and recite her a poem.

Celebrate Mum virtually

If you can't be with your mum in person on Mother’s Day, plan a virtual celebration. Whether you shower mum with love over facetime, or video call each other while you stream your favourite movie, the most important thing is your intention. A little time, care and effort is all you need to make Mother’s Day a truly special day for the person who’s done so much for you.
