Breakfast in bed is a classic mother’s day idea. What’s more luxurious than coffee and croissants whilst wrapped up in your quilt? Maybe add a cheeky mimosa for even more luxury. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate 3-course breakfast extravaganza, even just scrambled eggs of toast would be a treat.

what’s better than wandering around the great outdoors on a Sunday afternoon? You can look for local hiking trails online, you could even just wander around a local park. It’s a great free activity that gets you out of the house for a few hours of the day.
Talking of free options why not hunt down those old board games and spend the evening playing. Maybe not monopoly though, you don’t want to cause a family argument on mothers day.
