How do you show your mum just how much she really means to you? Becoming a mum, I have learnt how much mothers really do sacrifice for their little ones. It is a 24/7 job with the worlds craziest dictator for a boss, so how do you even begin to thank a mum for all her hard work. Personally, I love activity gifts rather than material ones. Experiences have always meant more to me than material possessions, so this Mothers Day I’ll be spending it doing an activity with my family rather than looking at my new gift.
With that in mind, here are my Top Five Gifts for your Mum this Mother’s Day.
- Cookery Classes
This weekend, mum and I are heading to the Forestside Cookery School. We will be spending four hours under the guidance of their passionate tutors baking chocolate brownies, doughnuts and lemon meringue muffins. Heavenly! Forestside Cookery School is one of many cookery schools in the Belfast area but it came highly recommended so we can’t wait to try it. If you aren’t sure what classes your mum would like best they also do vouchers!
2. Floral Class
I’m not really sure if I have ever heard of a mum that doesn’t like flowers, so why not treat her to a flower arranging class. The creators of my wedding flowers, House of Elliott Lisburn are hosting a flower arranging class this weekend specifically for Mother’s Day.
“we start off with lots of demonstrations and ideas and then you get to arrange a gorgeous arrangement and take it home to enjoy , morning class includes a light lunch and afternoon class includes afternoon tea , price also includes tuition all flowers and containers .”
3. Luxury Pedicure & Prosecco
Before Christmas, mum and I knew we needed some “us” time. It is always easy to get caught up in the chaos of Christmas so we booked in to Beauty Boulevard for their Luxury Pedicure and Prosecco treatment. They have launched the same offer for Mother’s Day and I can’t recommend it enough! It is the perfect pamper package to take some time out just the two of you!
The Luxury Pedicure includes:
Nail tidy, file & shape
4. Relaxation & Pamper Heaven
I am forever raving about Skin Medi Spa and how I feel rejuvenated every time I leave Judith and her team. Why not treat your mum to The Perfect Glow Voucher and head down together for some relaxation. “Get get full body glow with Elemis lemon & ginger salt scrub and vita spray tan.” My idea of heaven!
5. Afternoon Tea
This Mother’s Day mum and I will be heading to The Merchant Hotel Belfast for their Afternoon Tea. The Merchant are well known for their amazing afternoon tea, so why not join your mum and take an hour out of the craziness of the city to enjoy some delicious food.
Whatever you do, make sure your mum feels the love this mothers day. Spend a little extra time making your card or spend the day together. Mums only get one day a year!
