Things to do on the day to Mother's Day extra-special

breakfast

Photo album

#2 Stroll Down Memory Lane

Grab a cuppa', go to the cupboard and grab the photo albums with that special someone and enjoy thumbing through the memories through the years. You'll be amazed at how a small gesture like this will make the day really special. 

With so much going on, how much time do we have to reflect and reminice, probably not much! Going through baby photos, 1st birthday, 10th birthday or Great Grandpa's 100th birthday, your Mum and you will love having these memories rekindled and brought to the forefront.

Why not make more memories today? Go outside on a spontanious walk, take some photos and get them printed to savour the memory. Print photos easily at home as and when you need with photopaper or print on paper and use a handy paper trimmer to cut down to size.

Playlist

#3 Playlist Perfection

Grab your headphones, cuddle up on the sofa and listen to a playlist of songs perfect for the super Mum! 

This 4 hour playlist is perfect for easy listening, from Adele to Taylor, Temptations to Spice Girls, why not combine with the above ideas and add music into the mix.

Turn the up day up to 11! Why not put this on while making a meal fit for a Queen, if your Mum is still here, get her round and cook her favorite meal. If she's not, why not cook a meal that reminds you of her or another special lady in your life and raise a glass!

Tomorrow

Commit to a future gesture

#4 Random act of of kindness

Flowers and gifts on Mothering Sunday are lovely, but sometimes the expectation of the day means the surprise element is gone. Why not commit to a random act of kindness at another and get the surprise element back.

It doesn't have to be a big gift, just something thoughtful or even better something made with love and presented nicely.

Try a simple but lovely gift of a personlaised bag or top using easy-to-use fabric transfers. Simply print, cut and iron on and voila, the perfect gift. Go on step further and create a personalised wine label to go on a bottle of their favorite wine.

Whatever the act, make it personalised, make it count!

Everyday

Small things that make a big difference

#5 Consistent Gestures

Never underestimate the power of small gestures. From cooking a spontaneous meal, booking a spa day or just taking the time to to go out for a coffee or shopping trip, a small gesture goes a long way and really makes a difference.

A poll of 2,000 Mum's in January 2024 commisioned by Lego and Moonpig showed that the majority simply wanted some time. Time to spend reading, time to spend with the family, time to spend basically not being the supermum they are the rest of the time.

So a random invite to go shopping or on a walk, a suprise meal or doing the housework really is a gift - the gift of time!
