Mother's Day

Mother’s Day 2020 is going to be quite different this year than ever before. For many of us, that means not being able to see our mums in person or perhaps not having the pampered-day that we really, really wanted.

But that doesn’t mean the day can’t be equally as special. Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing to help you make the day special for your loved ones.

1. Breakfast in Bed

Who wouldn’t want some extra time with their favourite pillow? Here are some recipes perfect for eating in bed.

23. Time for a Spa Day

Nails not her thing? A homemade facial scrub may just be up her alley!

24. Ring Ring

High-tech is not everyone’s game and a lot of times, a simple phone call can brighten someone’s day. Take the time to call someone special in your life, especially if you haven’t had a chance to connect with them recently. 📞

25. Alone Time

Let’s be honest, sometimes the best time is alone time. Set up a quiet bath for mum or just give her some space and time to be alone with herself.

However you the day, I sincerely hope you make memories that last a lifetime. I’d love to hear your special moments so please feel free to share your story in the comments below.

Happy Mother’s Day!!

xoxo, Mary
