Mother’s Day is right around the corner (Sunday 8th May) and we know it can be tricky to come up with new ideas of how to celebrate the mother figure in your life each year. But don’t worry, we’ve got you! We’ve pulled together some fun activities and gifts to cater for everyone so you can make this Mother’s Day a special day to remember with ease.
An experience and quality time together (if possible) is invaluable, creating memories to last a lifetime. At Avenue Hampers, our luxury gift hampers have been designed with experiences and rituals in mind to make gifting extra special; so if you’re unable to spend the time together this year, our Mother’s Day Hampers will help you send a memorable gift with the same sentiment. We can even write a handwritten note with a personalised message from you to include with the hamper for an extra personal touch.
Here are our top suggestions for how to celebrate Mother’s Day:
1) Afternoon Tea for ‘The Foodie’
If food is the way to your mum’s heart, what better way to celebrate her than with a luxury afternoon tea. Book a table for two so you can indulge in tiers of tiny cakes and sandwiches, sip tea (or bubbles) and enjoy the special day together.
An afternoon tea in the comfort of her own home can be just as memorable with some of her favourite foods. At Avenue Hampers, gourmet gift hampers are our jam. Our Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea hamper includes a pretty handcrafted pink ‘hug mug’ and sweet treats that are sure to put a smile on her face.
2) Spa Day for ‘The Pampered Mum’
For the mum who loves to be pampered, plan a spa day the two of you can go to together. Whether you get a facial, massage, make use of luxury facilities or go for a full spa package, some self-care is bound to leave you both feeling refreshed and rejuvenated as well as give you some quality time together.
If your mum would prefer an at home pamper day, our brand new Celebrating Mum hamper is a special gift for her that is full of goodies she can use again and again such as a luxury Urban Rituelle soy candle, ‘Balance & Unwind’ essential oil and this gorgeous velvet eye mask.
3) Photoshoot or Album for ‘The Sentimental Mum’
Capturing memories in photos is a special way to celebrate Mother’s Day. Set a date, pick a location and organise a photo shoot. Whether it’s out in nature, at home or in a studio, a photographer will capture some quality photos that you and your family can keep forever.
Alternatively, create a personalised photo album of your favourite memories of your mum. With a scrapbook you can even write messages highlighting your favourite thing about the photograph, a funny memory or where it was taken. This is a sentimental gift she can treasure for years to come.
4) Outdoor Picnic for ‘The Nature Lover’
If your mum loves nature and exploring the great outdoors, be it a stroll in a local park or a hike up the hills, organise a day out to one of her favourite spots or even somewhere entirely new that you can explore together.
Pack a blanket and picnic full of her favourite goodies and find a spot with a pretty view where you can relax, soak up nature and enjoy each other’s company. We have a stunning selection of picnic gift hampers if you’d like some help, including our Luxury Mother’s Day Picnic Hamper below, which comes in a beautiful wicker basket with stunning copper champagne flutes your mum can use time after time.
5) Movie Night for ‘The Home Bird’
Does your mum love nothing more than a cosy night in? Organise her favourite movie, snacks and surprise her with a home movie night. Our Mother’s Day Pamper Hamper includes luxury cosy slippers for that next level of comfort and is the perfect gift for you both to enjoy cosied up at home with decadent hot chocolate, a handcrafted pink hug mug, sweet treats and a beautifully fragranced candle to add a spark of relaxation to your night.
6) Cocktail Night for ‘The Party Animal’
Mum deserves to let her hair down too. Plan a night to remember, get dressed up and take her out to a cocktail bar for snacks and drinks.
Our Gin Time Party hamper is the perfect party gift for gin lovers this Mother’s Day, including everything you need for a party at home. Create a diy playlist of your mum’s favourite tunes for an extra personal touch and party the night away.
