Mother’s Day is a special opportunity to show Mum that little bit of extra appreciation for all she’s done and will do for you. Here are five ways to make Mum’s special day just a little more memorable this year:

1. Treat her to her favourite food

Some say food is the language of love, and we agree! This tip is beautifully versatile – take Mum out to her favourite cafĂ© or restaurant and treat her to a meal for breakky, lunch or dinner (don’t forget dessert!); or create a home-cooked meal that’s a labour of love while Mum kicks back with her beverage of choice.

2. Gift her something personal

Whether it’s a handmade card or something tailored to her unique style, something personal is what almost every mother wants most on Mother’s Day. To really step outside of the box with your gift-giving, step into your nearest Showcase Jewellers store and ask about their engraving services to add a personal touch to any jewellery piece; or ask to see their range of gemstone pieces for Mum’s birth month.

3. Plan a fun activity into the day

Planning a special activity is a surefire way to not only treat Mum to something fun and different, but also spend time with her. Paint and Sip classes are taking off in popularity, which involve bringing your favourite drinks and snacks to a painting class, and bringing your masterpiece home with you afterward. If she’s not a fan of painting or wine, try a scavenger hunt, virtual cooking class or at-home spa day.

4. Have a night out

Tickets to a live comedy, theatre, movie or music show are the perfect way to not only have a unique gift ready on Mother’s Day, but also continue the celebration beyond the day. Just make sure to snap up enough tickets for the whole family, because the best memories are made together!

5. Have a night in

Sometimes the comforts of home and good company are better than anything else. Plan a night in with a cosy makeshift home cinema setup, popcorn and a movie the whole family can enjoy to really soak up the quality time with Mum this Mother’s Day.
