Mother’s Day, with a twist


What does the 31st of March 2019 mean to you? Have a quick think.

If you’re completely stumped, then you absolutely need to continue reading this.

It’s Mother’s day. You’re welcome, now head out on your lunch break, grab a card and send it first class and it should arrive on time!

If you are wanting to make a bit more of a gesture, rather than just sending a card in the post, we have brainstormed a few helpful ideas for you.

Now you could do the classic, afternoon tea, head for cocktails or even a fancy meal, all of which we imagine will be a very well received.

However, if you’re wanting to do something more memorable and a little different, than we can definitely help you out there!

  1. Why not channel your inner Demi Moore, and try your hand at pottery making. We found a great deal very easily via eventbrite for up to 3 people. You can take a look in more depth as to what the day involves, but if you are looking for a fun, immersive and memorable experience for you and mum then it’s perfect! Read more here.Pottery
  2. Being creative is something we may not be able to do as much as we like, as the older we get, life gets in the way. However, you could use Mother’s Day as an opportunity to allow that side of you a chance to run wild with Macaroon Painting, and the best part – you get to eat your creation at the end. You can find more information about how to do this here.Macaroons
  3. We are aware, that as Mother’s Day falls at the end of the month, it might be an occasion where you don’t want to break the bank. You could do things for your mum that usually, she doesn’t get the luxury of having. You could opt to give her a lie in, make her breakfast in bed, or simply clearing your schedule to spend time with her and doing something she enjoys.Binbed
  4. Ask yourself how often you and your mum are able to go and enjoy an evening together. If you can’t think of the last time you managed to make time, it might be worth taking a look at what shows are on in the Theatre and taking her there. Ask if there is anything specific she would like to go and see, and enjoy an evening with your mum, by getting dressed up and heading out for pre-theatre cocktails, and then going on to enjoy the show.Theatre
  5. Finally, why not take a trip to the Botanical Gardens? Open from 10 AM – 5 PM, Mother’s get to go free with a fully paying adult. You could have a wander and end with a coffee and a cake in their beautiful tea rooms – it’s much more of an experience than heading down to the local Costa for sure! Read more here.Tea
