18 Mother's Day Ideas to Spoil Mum This Year

Finding what to do for Mother’s Day can be a challenge. How do you show Mum just how much you love her? Whether you’re looking for heartfelt gifts, fun outings, or memorable activities, we’ve got you covered with these 18 fun Mother’s Day ideas that will make her feel very special.


1. Make Customised DIY Gifts 

Get crafty and create something uniquely special for Mum, just like you did when you were a kid. From personalised photo albums to hand-painted mugs, let your creativity shine and add a personal touch to her day. 

You can even create artwork for her home with Pinot & Picasso artwork painted by you. These handmade touches make for unforgettable Mother’s Day gift ideas.


2. Cook Breakfast in Bed

If your Mum is someone who appreciates the little things in life, we’ve got just the thing. Start Mum’s day off right with a delicious breakfast served straight to her bedside. Whip up her favourite pancakes, eggs benedict, or avocado toast with a side of a steaming cup of her favourite brew.

It’s one of the classic Mother’s Day ideas that never disappoints. Just make sure the kitchen is nice and clean before she gets out of bed. 


3. A Mother-Daughter Spa Day

Who doesn’t love to treat themselves? Head to the local day spa or treat Mum to a relaxing spa day without ever leaving the comfort of home. Set up a DIY spa station complete with soothing face masks, scented candles, and luxurious bath oils. Bonus points for giving her a well-deserved massage!

If you want to leave the massaging to the professionals, head to your local day spa for a mother-daughter date for Mother’s Day. Book in for an hour treatment or get a whole day package. It’s the ultimate Mother’s Day activity that you can get something out of, too!

4. Paint and Sip at Pinot & Picasso

For a Mother’s Day painting idea, book into a sip and paint session at Pinot & Picasso. Connect with Mum over a couple of cocktails and create your masterpiece, thanks to the step-by-step instructions from local artists. These paint and sip sessions are all about creating great times through creativity and will leave Mum happier than when she arrived. 

Make the experience extra special by booking a Textured Art session. It combines paint and clay to create a three-dimensional artwork that makes you feel like a real artist – that could be the drinks talking. 


5. Picnic in the Park

Get the family together at the local park for a fun afternoon. Pack a picnic basket of Mum’s favourite snacks, sneak a couple bottles of wine and enjoy fresh air (even if it’s a little crisp!). 

If little ones are tagging along, don’t forget to bring a ball or some games to liven up the afternoon. It’s a simple yet delightful Mother’s Day outing idea that Mum will love.


6. DIY Flower Arranging

Get hands-on with a DIY flower arranging session. Head to your local florist or flower market to pick out some beautiful blooms, then spend the afternoon creating stunning arrangements together. 

Create a bouquet for the home or make a flower crown for the afternoon. It’s a wonderful way to spend quality time and explore Mother’s Day craft together.

7. Serve it up with a Cooking Class

Bon appétit! If Mum loves cooking up a storm for the family, book a virtual cooking class or head to a local cooking school for the day. If you want to stay home, sign up for an online cooking course or follow along with a tutorial on YouTube and learn how to whip up delicious dishes from around the world. 

This is not only a fun Mother’s Day activity but also a chance to learn some new recipes that will become household favourites. 


8. Go for a Scenic Walk

Head to the countryside for a scenic walk and take in that fresh air. It’s a wholesome opportunity to connect with Mum as you explore the great outdoors. 

Find some exciting walks near you that might have a lookout, a waterfall or some views back to your town. It doesn’t have to be a long or hard walk; it’s all about being with your Mum on Mother’s Day. 


9. Enjoy a High Tea

Pinkies up! Treat Mum to a fancy high tea experience at home or a local venue in town.

Brew a pot of her favourite tea, whip up some delicious scones and finger sandwiches, and serve them on a tiered cake stand for an elegant touch – look at you go! 

Dress up and head out for your afternoon tea experience. Enjoy tasty treats, a unique tea or even a cheeky glass of champagne to celebrate Mum’s big day. It’s a very UK Mother’s Day activity idea, but it’s popular for a reason.

10. Flick on a Movie Marathon

Whether she’s into classic rom-coms, action-packed adventures, or heartwarming dramas, enjoy curling up on the couch with this entertaining Mother’s Day idea. Just make sure you don’t forget the popcorn! 


11. Sip Back with a Wine Tasting

Raise a glass to Mum with a wine tasting experience. Head to a local winery for this Mother’s Day activity and enjoy trying a selection of wines together. From rosés to fine reds, you’ll enjoy sipping on something delicious and new. 

Make an afternoon of it by booking lunch or a grazing platter to snack on – eating is an important part of drinking! If you find a wine you like, buy a bottle or two and take it home to continue the Mother’s Day celebrations. 


12. A Day in the Garden

If your Mum loves her garden, get your hands dirty with a fun gardening day. Whether you’re planting flowers, herbs, or vegetables, spending time together in the garden is a great way to bond and create lasting memories. Plus, Mum will love seeing her garden flourish, thanks to your green thumbs! 

It’s a wholesome Mother’s Day idea that shows you taking an interest in her favourite hobby.

It’s a sentimental and meaningful Mother’s Day gift idea that she’ll undoubtedly wear every day from now on.


14. A Trip Down Memory Lane

Handmade gifts really are the most special. Take a trip down memory lane with a DIY scrapbooking session. Gather up old photos, ticket stubs, and mementos from your favourite shared experiences, then spend the day creating a beautiful scrapbook filled with cherished memories. 

It’s a heartfelt gift that Mum is sure to treasure for years to come and a wonderful Mother’s Day craft project.


15. A Mother’s Day Bake-Off

Channel your inner Mary Berry and spend the day baking up a storm with Mum. From decadent cakes to gooey brownies, there’s no shortage of delicious treats to whip up together. Just be sure to save some room for tasting! It’s a sweet and indulgent Mother’s Day activity that satisfies the sweet tooth. The diet will start tomorrow…

Whether you’re posing in a scenic park or twirling around in matching outfits, it’s a fun way to celebrate your special bond. Don’t forget to not take yourselves too seriously; that’s how the best photos are made! 


17. Go to the Theatre

Treat Mum to a front-row seat at a local theatre performance. Whether it’s a classic Shakespearean play, a contemporary drama, or a lively musical, an afternoon at the theatre is always an entertaining experience. 

If you really want to spoil her, head to the West End to see the very best performers in London. It’s one of the best Mother’s Day ideas that will make her feel very spoiled, especially if you remember the show she’s been wanting to see!
