🏠Home for Mother’s Day
Mom more of a homebody? Embrace that and check out these ideas on how to spend Mother’s Day at home.
Breakfast in Bed
A classic that never fails to give a great start to Mother’s Day. Spoil her, be it your mom, wife or grandma, with an extra-special breakfast for her with tea or coffee and accompanied with flowers and a card.
A Home Cooked Meal
Besides breakfast, sitting down to eat together is always a nice way to celebrate family and togetherness. For a stay at home Mother’s Day idea, prepare a delicious home-cooked meal that your Mom and the rest of the family can enjoy.
Bonus at Home Ideas
- Board games
- Hugs. Lots of hugs
- Watch movies
- Complete a puzzle together
☀️Outdoors for Mother’s Day
If mom is eager to get out this Sunday, here are some ideas for some Mother’s Day outdoor activities.
The coffee Stroll
Spring is already making its way with blossoms appearing on the trees and daffodils poking their heads through the grass. Take a walk through nature or around town, and appreciate the first signs of spring with Mom. Walk the dog too while you’re at it! Grab a coffee each and enjoy each other’s company as you stroll.
Picnic in the park
Another great idea for Mother’s day is a picnic in the park! Prepare all her favorite foods, drinks, a picnic blanket and an umbrella (in case the weather takes an unpredictable turn). It doesn’t have to be at a park – you can take it further, like a lakeside or a beach. Remember to be considerate and clear up your rubbish after you.
Bonus Outdoor Ideas
- Explore that new local café or go to her usual
- Shop till you drop
- Bike riding. Plan out a route to visit and sightsee
- BBQ in the garden

Video Chat Spa Session
Have a shared spa session with mom through a web call. Send Mom a gift package with candles, face mask, bath bubbles & get the same for yourself. Start a video call and take the time to chat and relax together while you pamper yourselves, just like a spa.
If your mom is more of a bake-off fan, why not pick a recipe to try and cook it together on video chat? If Mom is a skilled baker, she can pass on her tips, and you both get to eat the results after…what could be better?
Bonus Online Ideas
- Play a co-optional game online like Wordle Off
- Gift mom a voucher or gift card and have her create a photobook of her favorite family photos or a lovely framed photo print
- Recommend and watch some Netflix shows
- A playlist of all her favorite songs
We hope you found some inspiration from our Mother’s Day ideas. Whoever you celebrate it with this year, have fun.
