Mother's Day Ideas
17 March 2020
Mother's Day is just a few days away now (Sunday 22nd March this year), and the nation are looking at ways to spoil their lovely mums or mother figure in their life. Spending quality time together, thoughful gifts and heartfelt hand written cards are perfect ways to show Mum just how much you care - not just on Mother's Day, but everyday of the year!
We share 5 ideas of how you can spoil your Mum this Sunday.
IDEA #1 Breakfast in bed
Busy Mum’s will love the treat of a Sunday lay in, whilst you cook up a storm in the kitchen! Get your cooking aprons on and roll up your sleeves to create a Mother’s Day breakfast in bed that could win MasterChef. Flip some pancakes, scramble some eggs, bake some croissants – whatever your Mums’ favourite breakfast is, you can spoil her on Mothering Sunday.
One of our go-to breakfast recipes is this BBC Good Food smoked salmon scramble croissants. Super tasty and easy to make, serve with a freshly brewed coffee and glass of orange juice on a tray – the perfect way to start Mother’s Day!
IDEA #2 National Trust Event
The National Trust have a range of events going on in during the month of March to help celebrate Mother’s Day. Spend some quality time as a family wandering round the gardens in colourful Spring bloom, join a planting workshop or enjoy a guided tour of the historic property.
Stowe National Trust is a short drive from Northamptonshire, and well worth a visit in Spring. A grand Georgian building a stunning gardens, they have a host of events such as snowdrop walks and Mother’s Day afternoon tea. Check out the National Trust website for more information on Mother's Day events taking place in your local area.
IDEA #3 Bespoke Flowers from Magnolia the Florist
What better way to say ‘thanks a bunch Mum’ than with her favourite flowers? Magnolia the Florist have a beautiful range of fresh flowers and bestselling gifts that can be ordered online, over the phone or in-store ready for delivery on Mothering Sunday! So whether she loves pink roses, adores the smell of lilies or is crazy about gerberas, your local Kettering florist can create a bespoke bouquet just for your Mum.
Our Mother’s Day Collection is available to order online for delivery to Kettering, Corby, Market Harborough and all other local areas. One of our favourite floral gifts this year is our lovely Mother’s Day Surprise – which is an elegant display box filled with beautiful blooms in pinks and purples.
IDEA #4 Netflix & PJ Day
A fun way to spend some valuable time as a family, without even having to leave the house!
Pick out a couple of your Mum’s favourite musicals on Netflix, pop on your favourite PJs, grab your favourite cinema snacks and find your microphone (a hairbrush works pretty well for this we find) and enjoy an afternoon belting out your favourite movie songs! The Sound of Music, The Greatest Showman, Hairspray, Mamma Mia and Grease would definitely make our top 5 shortlist, what would be your Mum’s favourite?
IDEA #5 Relax at the Spa
Your Mum will love the treat of a pamper day at your local Spa to unwind and feel truly spoilt from head to toe. Many luxury spas offer a wide range of Spa packages to choose from, which can include lunch and a treatment or 2.
We love the Stable Spa at Rushton Hall in Northamptonshire, which has an amazing heated indoor pool, outdoor pool to enjoy a Spring swim, jacuzzi full of soothing bubbles, sauna and steam room, outdoor terrace (weather permitting of course!) and treatment rooms.
