Mother’s day in the UK is coming soon (31st March). If you're at a loss for ideas on how to celebrate, take a look at our 5 quick and easy ways on how to treat your mum without breaking the bank.
Let Mum sleep for an extra few hours
For Mother’s Day (especially if it’s her first one) give her what she craves the most and let mum sleep in for an extra few hours. If you have younger children, make sure you keep them out of earshot for those extra ZZZZs. Allowing time for extra rest will make her whole day more enjoyable.
Bring her breakfast in bed
Well more like brunch in bed! So whilst she’s catching those extra ZZZs make her a special breakfast. It doesn’t haven to be extravagant. Perhaps some freshly brewed coffee or tea with her favourite flapjack or muffin. Lay it out on a tray with her homemade card and wait for the smile on mum's face when you go in.
Cook a scrumptious lunch
If mum normally cooks the Sunday lunch or dinner, give her the day off and cook a loving meal. It doesn’t have to be complicated, a roast chicken with a simple salad or veggies will mean the world to her. Round it off with our Blackcurrant Sponge Pudding for a totally satisfying meal
Go for a family walk or hike
Work up an appetite or burn off that Sunday lunch with a stroll around the park or country estate. Leave all gadgets at home for some quality family time, because we don't want family members getting distracted. While a race to the swings is fun for all.
Plan a picnic
Finally, if the weather is kind, take Sunday lunch outside, again it doesn’t have to be complicated. A few of her favourite chosen treats will really make it special, think more macaron than sausage on a stick. Pack a cake of course!
Whatever you end up doing, we hope you have a relaxing and wonderful Mother’s Day. Wishing all mums (including grandmothers, step-mums and particularly cool mother-in-laws) a wonderful day. Why not send her a little "me time" all year round with our Cake Slice Club for an extra special treat.
