This Sunday see’s Mother’s Day, a time to celebrate your Mum, and all those lovely people that you have a maternal bond with, be it a Grandmother or Stepmother. 

It’s lovely to give your Mum a gift to show her how much you care, but I can guarantee the one thing they would love more, is to spend some quality time with you. 

Here are some cool suggestions to get you top Brownie points on this special day!

The National Trust are holding several special Mother’s Day events and there is bound to be one near you. 

For something a little different, we like the look of a special Photography Workshop at Hadrian’s Wall.  Immerse yourself in the wild landscape and use your camera to capture the picturesque surroundings with the help of professional photographer  Roger Clegg.     

If that seems a little adventurous, most National Trust properties are offering a delightful Afternoon Tea – yum!

 hot cross scones

Bake some delicious treats either with or for your Mum, then sit down and enjoy them together with a nice pot of tea!  We have our hearts set on these scrummy looking Hot Cross Scones – combining the deliciously moist, crumbly texture of home-baked scones with the fruity flavours and spicy overtones of hot cross buns.   


Breakfast Escargot - Make her breakfast in bed!  We love this idea for a super easy breakfast for little hands to make!  I mean who wouldn’t want a banana/muffin snail to wake up to?  


Say it with flowers – and what can be more cheery than the simple daffodil.  Absolutely sure to raise a smile, simple to arrange, they really are the perfect gift this Mother’s Day!   


Watch a movie – but not any old movie!  Take a trip to London in June and watch Oscar Winner Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo and Juliet at the Backyard Cinema. To mark the 20 year anniversary of Baz Luhrmann’s gorgeous film, you can watch this iconic movie screened under the beautiful stained glass windows and set amongst the candle lit aisles of St Mary’s Church, with the Some Voices choir accompany the film and and perform live versions of the famous movie soundtrack! 


Finally, if you really want to give a gift to your dear old Mum, then Bell and Blue is the place to go for the most beautiful stylish gifts!  The Royal Pip collection is the perfect option for Spring – bright and cheery, it definitely will brighten up her day! 

Whatever it is that you do, have a special one! x
