The 14th March 2021 marks Mother’s Day. At this point in time, we hope we may be able to see our nearest and dearest.
Here are our tips for Mother’s Day whether you are close by or at a distance.
Living together? It’s the little things!
Ask any Mum what they would love, and they’ll reply with “10 minutes of peace and quiet”. Sound familiar?
Start off the day by making your Mum’s favourite tea or coffee in her favourite mug. For bonus points, do this unprompted! For additional brownie points, serve in bed with breakfast. Now step away and let your Mum have that precious quiet time!
Spend some quality time with your Mum, stage a home cinema with cosy seating, popcorn, chocolates and let her choose the movie! This would be the ideal time to present your Mum with a pair of luxurious cashmere socks to show her how much you love her.
Go all out and cook her a delicious roast dinner too. If you’re not so hot on the cooking side of things, thank goodness the takeaways are still open!
Living Close by?
It looks like (in Scotland) meeting up for a walk and a coffee outdoors will be a safe way to see your Mum and celebrate with her on this special day. Planning to see your Mum in person will surely make her day.
Treat her to a takeaway coffee and a scrumptious slice of cake. You will be walking it off, so go for as cream-filled and gooey as you please! If you’ve nailed baking banana bread thanks to lockdown 1, your Mum will be sure to love the thought and effort.
As it’s still a bit chilly, a gift of cashmere gloves will make your Mum feel special while keeping her warm – showing you care at a time where giving the usual big hug isn’t a possibility.
Living at a distance?
At a time where our loved ones seem so far away, occasions like Mother’s Day can still be celebrated.
A thoughtful gift can be sent to bring some excitement and happiness to your Mum. There are the usual flowers and chocolates options, but why not up the ante this year with an afternoon tea. Arrange to have one delivered to you too, so you can enjoy the experience with your Mum via Zoom, Skype or Facetime. Who says you need to be in the same room to share an afternoon tea?
The one thing that is difficult to do at a distance is a hug with your dearest Mum. We have discovered that cashmere scarves are a great substitute for a hug. Your Mum will treasure a thoughtful gift and it will remind her of you each and every time she wears it.
