Pamper and please your Mum from home this Mothering Sunday with these great activities

Show your mum how much you appreciate her and all she does for you by giving her the ultimate chill out day at home this Mother's Day.

Escape the early March chill and hunker down whilst your mum lounges in her pyjamas and eats all her favourite goodies. This is the ultimate Mother's Day celebration that won't burst your purse...

Dine on afternoon tea

Afternoon Tea is a quintessentially British past time and the perfect way to spoil your mum this Mothering Sunday. Get in some fancy tea, fresh scones with all the trimmings and tiny sandwich slices with the crusts cut off. If you really want to splurge then have some champagne on ice and fresh tea leaves too!

Pamper her

Pamper your mum with a manicure, pedicure and blow dry whilst she sits back and rests. Create your own salon at home by playing some soothing music, set up pamper stations around her bedroom and treat her to a plump and fluffy new bathrobe.

Invite all the family over

Mums, grandmas, aunts and cousins should all spend Mother's Day together so hold a big family gathering around the table or at a picnic in the woods. Surrounding your mum with the people she loves most on her special day will make her feel loved.

Make a scrapbook

Whether you're making a scrapbook celebrating the past year or penning a prediction book for the year ahead, your mum will enjoy this time with you.

Bake her favourite goodies together

Spend some valuable time in the kitchen together. Instead of baking her favourite goodies or cooking her favourite dinner, get your mum involved and learn all her tricks of the trade and secret recipes.

Get green-fingered

If your mum is a green-fingered goddess then help her out in the garden today as spring breaks. She'll love your company in her favourite surroundings and you can even plant a new flower or tree to mark the special day.

Look through old family albums

Get the dusty photo albums down from the loft and look through old family photos. Your mum will love reliving nostalgic memories from her childhood and beyond and reminiscing over past Mother's Day with her mother, grandma and great grandmother.
