2. Say Cheers At Bottomless Brunch 

Rather than taking your mum out for a meal this Mother’s Day, get the best of both worlds and opt for a bottomless brunch which perfectly combines booze with breakfast. 

Every bottomless brunch event is different depending on where you go, but you can expect unlimited flowing drinks within the allocated time slot and a delicious plate to choose from.

There’s even themed bottomless brunches with amazing entertainment like ABBA events where you can dress up, have a sing-along and cheers to the good times with some prosecco.

There are few things better in life than watching your favourite artists live, having a sing-along and a dance.

It’s even more memorable when you’re doing it with your Mum and seeing how happy she is! 

We’re sure there’ll be plenty of gigs taking place near you or within your uni city or town so, have a search online and see what events your Mum would love.

This Mother’s Day, give your mum a treat by designing a family photo album with all of her favourite snapshots of you and your family. 

Nothing says wholesome like a personalised photo book that honours your family memories, right?

5. Visit A Museum 

Mother’s Day is all about togetherness and creating memories, and we can’t think of a better way to do this than heading to a museum for a day filled with culture. 

Spend the day exploring your local museum or gallery, or invite your mum to come and explore the cultural hubs in your uni city or town. 

No matter where you live, we’re sure they’ll be a museum on your doorstep.

It’s a great chance to learn more and take a deep dive into history!

Let’s face it, the March weather is a little temperamental too, so opting for an indoor activity may be a good idea to escape the rain and cold.

If you’re stuck with things to do this Mother’s Day, you could plan to take a workout class with your Mum. 

Group fitness classes are a great bonding session to do together, especially if you both like staying physically active and feeling zen. 

You could do a yoga session with a combination of poses and breathing exercises, a Zumba class which works your whole body, or a Pilates class to relieve the tensions in your muscles – perfect for those Mum’s needing to relax! 

There’s plenty of different fitness classes out there to do with your Mum to spend time together and get your bodies moving.

7. Plant Something Together 

Within our busy schedules we quite often forget to connect with nature well, now’s the time. 

Instead of buying your Mum some flowers or a plant, spend some time together and get some seeds to plant this Mother’s Day. 

There’s no shortage of growing kits out there for both the indoors and outdoors so, get your hands dirty and maybe even have a glass of bubbly after. 

This activity is a special one to do with your Mum if she’s an avid gardener and is something that will last a lifetime!

8. Read Each Other’s Favourite Books 

For something more unique to do for Mother’s Day, you could plan to read your Mum’s favourite book and give her yours to read. 

Exchanging books is super fun if you and your mum are book lovers, or you just fancy doing something different to learn more about one another’s interests. 

You could get some nice snacks, some tea or coffee and have a nice chilled afternoon with your Mum getting stuck into a book – talk about wholesome vibes. 

You never know, you might walk away from it with a new favourite read!
