MARVELLOUS AFFORDABLE GIFTS TO MAKE YOUR MUM FEEL EXTRA SPECIAL ON MOTHER’S DAY

Mother’s Day - which falls on Sunday 14th March - is fast approaching.

And whilst the usual celebrations are off the cards due to lockdown - unless, of course, you live together – there are lots of ways to show mum just how special she is.

Here’s our round-up of the loveliest lockdown ideas that - you can do from the safety of your home -that will definitely share some much-needed cheer this Mothering Sunday. Even better, they won’t break your budget.

Send a breakfast-in-bed delivery

Just because you can’t physically make her breakfast in bed like the good ol’ days, it doesn’t mean you can’t start the day with a surprise delivery. You can find lots of ideas to suit all tastes and budgets online – from the usual online food order and delivery services to local bakeries and delis. Or what about doing the same for afternoon tea?

Bake and post

A home-baked treat is a great way to show someone how much you care. If mum lives nearby, you can bake anything and drop it off on her doorstep. If she’s not local, why not bake and post some brownies, cookies or gingerbread – as they travel pretty well in a letter postal box, that you can buy online.

Check out this recipe and don’t forget to include a handwritten note!

Make a photo book

Isn’t it time you got round to printing off some of those photos from your phone? Scroll through your camera roll, mark your favourite photos that you know your mum will love and get uploading to one of the many websites that specialise in these personalised photo albums.

It’s super easy and the finished product can be sent straight to mum. She’ll love it.

Do an online class together

Want to spend quality time and also have fun with your mum? Book an online class and learning a new skill together.

From virtual cookery classes to cocktail making masterclasses, escape rooms to gin tasting – there’s something for everyone.

Make a film

If you fancy being creative and want to turn some of those photos and videos of you and your mum into something extra-special, why not make a Mother's Day video? There are lots of easy video and moviemaking apps to choose from and you can send it to her via Whatsapp or email.

Arrange a dinner

Instead of taking mum out for a meal, why not arrange a dinner to be sent out to her home? There are lots of great and delicious food delivery services for the most mouth-watering meals or meal kits.

Arrange a zoom call and make yourself meal as well, so you both could chat away whilst eating.
