Mother’s day falls on March 27 this year, and so you’ll want to start planning now. Getting in the mood for mother’s day can be a lot of fun. Plus, now that the pandemic appears to be coming to an end, you have many more options than before.
Go On A Family Hike
If you’re feeling a bit of cabin fever, you might want to arrange going on a family hike on mother’s day. Find a local trail and try to walk it. Research suggests that hiking for more than 45 minutes can help reduce stress, particularly if your route goes through a forest.
Get A Massage
Another mother’s day idea is to get a massage. They’re not always cheap, depending on where you live, but they’re certainly relaxing.
Many services will come directly to your home. However, for the full spa experience, you can also travel to a clinic.
Buy Veggies At The Farmer’s Market
Do you have a fancy meal that you’d like your family members to make for you on mother’s day? If so, you might want to book a day out at the farmer’s market. Here you’ll find all sorts of locally-grown ingredients to delight the senses. You can then bring them all back with you in a brown paper bag and allow your family to cook while you take the evening off.
Go And See A Musical In Style
Going to see musicals can be a lot of fun. It provides real entertainment. But when do you have a chance during the year when you are a parent? Not often.
If you’re planning a day out, avoid the hassle of driving. Instead, use a limo car service to chauffeur you to and from the venue. This way, you can avoid the hassle of taking public transport or finding a place to park up.
Host Your Own Bake-Off
Eating delicious cake is a lot of fun, particularly on mother’s day. It’s one of those rare occasions when you’re free to indulge yourself. What’s more, it’s a chance for you to teach the rest of the family what to do. You could host a mini-bake off where everyone piles into the kitchen and creates something themselves.
Have The Ultimate Staycation
You don’t have to go away for mother’s day (though that’s a nice thing to do). Instead, you can plan the perfect staycation. For instance, you might go on a mother-daughter outing or prepare the guest room and equip it with scented, crisp sheets, like a hotel.
Get Breakfast In Bed
What’s your ideal breakfast? Croissants with butter? Crepe with cream and fruit? Eggs and bacon?
Whatever it is, get your family to serve it to you on mother’s day. Imagine you’re staying in a 5-star hotel and everything is being done for you.
Hire A Photographer
Lastly, you might want to hire a photographer to capture special moments from the day. If you don’t want to spend money, you can get a family member or a friend with a good camera to take pictures of the day for you.
