Alternative ways to treat your mum this Mother’s Day

Want to do something a bit cooler than normal for your mum this year?

 

Or are you the mum and want to leave this page open on your browser for one of your little darlings to find and think they’ve come up with it all by themselves? (just remember to scroll down past this sentence)…

 

 

For the Boho Mum

Stay: Hire a VW camper van and go and explore some awesome countryside.

Do: Wrap mum up nice and warm and go for a long walk.

Eat: Take a picnic – or if a mate’s got one of those portable stoves, even better, let her sit back on a deck chair and you do the cooking.

 

 

 

For the Classy Mum

Stay: Find a cute little B’n’B just for the two of you bursting with English charm

Do: Book yourselves into a spa, but instead of the regular massage she’ll be expecting, why not try something different like cupping, a seaweed bath or chocolate facial?

Eat: Why not try an afternoon tea with a difference – like one that’s on a moving bus! (This one’s in central London)

 

 

 

For the Funky Mum 

Stay: Some mums might not fancy full-on camping, but glamping in a tree house – hello!

Do: Why not keep costs down and take your bikes for a bit of exercise and adventure.

Eat: If you and your mum enjoy cooking, why not do a cookery course together for some quality bonding time over good food.

 

 

 

For the Rocky Mum

 

Stay: If cash is a bit tight, why not kick everyone else out the house so you two can have some time together by yourselves? Maybe just run the duster round first so it looks like you’ve made an effort. A bit of Mr Sheen won’t break the bank.

Do: When was the last time you went to a gig with your mum? Have a rummage through her CD (or tape!) collection and see who she loves. Even if they’re not your thing – they might end up being and she’ll love you for it!

Eat: Make a cake! Yeah it’s not her birthday, but why not!
