Your mother has always been there for you. She’s the person you turn to when you have incredible news, when you need a pick-me up or when you just need to have a good rant. Mothers are an invaluable part of our lives and they have dedicated themselves every day to keeping us healthy and happy. So when Mother’s Day rolls around, it is important to really show your mother how much she means to you.
Here are a few suggestions for ways you can treat your mum this Mother’s Day.
A Spa Day
Getting pampered is one of the best ways to spend time whether or not it’s a holiday. However, remember that Mother’s Day is about focusing on your mum and spending quality time with her, so a spa day together shows you want to spoil her while enjoying her company.
Book her for a few treatments of her own, and meet up for lunch at the spa café. End the trip with side-by-side manicures so you can rave about the treatments you just had and catch up on your days. You’ll both be so relaxed that you won’t be able to do much but enjoy the time together!
A Mother’s Day Photo Shoot
We’re not talking some cheesy shopping centre portraits here (although they can be fun)! Instead, pick a spot that is meaningful to you and your mother. Did she always take you to a certain park growing up? Do you have a favorite hiking spot? Pick a location that is super meaningful to both of you, one that really defines your relationship. Hire a local photographer to do a natural and candid shoot of the two of you enjoying the day. Laugh, smile, be silly and just spend time together. You’ll end up with portraits that show your true connection, and moments you will both treasure forever.
Bonus points if you both do some beauty-prep before the big day. Pamper your mum by getting her a spa night basket to help beautify yourselves the night before. Pack it full of face masks, nail polish, and great smelling candles. You might even want to throw in a bottle of wine to make your home spa night a bit more fun! You can even give her the basket a week or so in advance and include the Best Friends Pack of professional teeth whitening. Use the tooth whiteners together leading up to the Mother’s Day shoot so you both have stunningly white smiles that you will be proud to show off!

A Dining Excursion
A fancy high tea could be an extra special treat, or why not try a new restaurant? Many restaurants have a special hidden feature called the chef’s table that treats diners to a unique and bespoke experience. Rather than ordering off the standard menu, the chef’s table typically lives to serve you.
This is an especially great gift if your mum sometimes feels like a short-order cook constantly whipping up meals on-demand. Now she can turn the tables and get everything she wants made her way, or get the best of the best of what the chef recommends. If your mother has a favorite dinner spot, call and check to see if they have any personalization options to treat your mother to a meal she’ll never forget.
A Box of Love
Sometimes one day just isn’t enough time to celebrate your mother. That’s why subscription boxes are such a great idea. There are tons of boxes for every interest. Whether your mum loves solving mysteries, trying the latest beauty products, or getting new clothes delivered straight to her door, a box subscription could be the perfect solution.
She’ll look forward to getting the mail every month knowing that her box is on its way. These subscriptions usually vary in duration from a one-time trial to a full year of surprises. Some subscription services even allow you to personalize your boxes by filling out a preference survey. Giving your mum a year of gifts will show her how much you love her, and add joy to her life every time she gets a new gift! This is an especially good idea if you live far from your mother and never want her to forget how special she is to you.
What’s most important is to remind your mother how much she means to you on Mother’s Day. Taking the time and effort to show you really care is much more important than how much you spend on your gift. Your mum knows you care, but it is always great to get a reminder that the hard work she does in your life has not gone unnoticed. Find a meaningful way to show she’s important and you’re sure to make your mum smile this Mother’s Day.
