Mother’s Day lands on Sunday 11th March this year which means you’ve got less than a week to show the number one girl in your life just how much you love her. No matter how much your Mum tells you she doesn’t want a fuss she’ll be sure to get slightly misty eyed when you ensure the whole day revolves around her. When it comes to Mum’s and their babies 9 times out of 10 simply spending time together is all she wants so by picking one of these options you’ll have her gift boxed off and a date in the diary just for you two.
Take her for a spa day
Sometimes Mums need a bit of TLC but trying to get them to put their feet up can be mission impossible. By booking a spa day for the two of you it means she’s got no choice but to kick back and relax. Let her pick her treatments and the two of you can sit back and sip some fizz whilst you’re pampered. Bliss!
Top pick: The Maya Blue Spa at the Titanic Hotel is the perfect place to escape the outside world and with a top class restaurant upstairs you can treat her to a meal once you’ve been pampered.
Book in for afternoon tea
All Mums love afternoon tea and a tower of finger sandwiches, cakes and scones are the way to most people’s hearts. Whether she’s a sweet or savoury gal afternoon tea is the perfect option to keep her happy. Add a glass of fizz or two and she’ll feel like a Queen.
Top pick: Treat her to afternoon tea with a view at Panoramic 34 and let her point out her favourite Liverpool landmarks whilst making her way through the sweet treats.
Open her eyes to the world of personal shopping
We all love a bit of retail therapy (some of us more than others…) but if your Mum is anything like mine then treating herself is right at the bottom of the list. Sign her up to a personal shopping session and let someone else do all the hard work for her. She’ll come away looking and feeling a million dollars!
Top pick: Head to Liverpool ONE where both Flannels and Topshop offer a personal shopping service meaning every style and budget is covered.
Make her year with a family photo shoot
OK so posing in a studio with your parents and siblings might sound like your idea of hell but the photos you’ll get out of it will be your Mums pride and joy for years. Not all photo shoots have to be in a studio either with many photographers offering an ‘on location’ option which should make you feel a little less awkward.
Top pick: Head to Venture Studios in the city centre and you’ll be a natural in front of the camera in no time.
Make her some IOU vouchers
If money and/or time is tight then you can’t go wrong with some IOU vouchers (these are a great option for all occasions, not just mothers day FYI) Write her some ‘cheques’ for all manner of options with everything from cooking her tea, driving her to work and sitting down to watch her favourite show together all a great choice.
