7 First Mother’s Day Ideas To Make Her Whole Day Unforgettable

A Clean, Sparkling House

The last thing any new mum has time for is cleaning, dusting and ironing every day. Plus, the last thing she wants to think about on this special day is how messy the house looks for guests. Treat her to a thorough clean before the weekend. Watch her face light up. A clean and cosy home has a calming effect and will get her special day off to a wonderful start. 


A Leisurely Breakfast In Bed

We guarantee she would give anything to sleep in for once, and breakfast in bed is no real fun in the early hours. So make arrangements for feeding baby and make sure the important prelude is a lazy lie-in. Give her the invaluable gift of alone time, peace, and quiet. Then whip up all her favourite breakfast foods in the kitchen and serve her a Mother’s Day feast to savour in bed.


A Card And Fresh Flowers

A little bit of tradition is vital on her first mothers day, so make sure you have written a thoughtful card (hint: you can include a message on your gift card when you order a hamper). Choose a big bunch of beautiful colourful blooms and tie them with string. Keep the bouquet in water somewhere secret until the big day. Then add some satin ribbon and bows and surprise her whenever you want. Any new mum will feel completely spoilt.


A Mother’s Day Personal Gift

For a really personal touch, fill a pretty basket with choices of all her favourite small things. You could choose her favourite coffee or chocolates, a book or DVD she wants or even her favourite flower seeds. Make them as touching and funny as you can, and add little handwritten notes. If you want a hint of luxury, then order one of our sensational Mother’s Day hampers! 


A Totally Pampering Treat

Being a new mum is emotionally and physically exhausting, so help her unwind in the afternoon. Relaxation is powerful, so set the scene with aromatic candles and soft mood music. Treat her to a big fluffy bathrobe and slippers and make her put her feet up. Add in some luxurious body and bath products and she will love you forever.  


A Dinner She Deserves

On Mother’s Day, make sure she does not have to worry about preparing any meals. Make a spectacular brunch or afternoon tea and take her out for dinner at a new restaurant. If she wants to stay home with baby, then get creative. Try something mouth-watering from her favourite cookery book, order a takeaway or surprise her with a fabulous gourmet food hamper. 


A Family Tradition She Loves

Of all the ideas for Mother’s Day, creating a new tradition is the perfect one. Aside from showering her with all the wonderful treats, do something special together. Maybe you decide to walk along the beach, have a picnic at a local park (or playground), or have a cosy evening bonfire with sparklers and fun board games. Choose something she loves so you can repeat it every Mother’s Day to come.  


A Memory To Treasure

Make sure that mum’s special day and all those cherished memories are documented. Take lots of first Mother's Day photos (this is super important) to put in her album or make a box of memories that you can add to each year. Collect handwritten notes and Mother’s Day cards, or get friends or her own mother to write short quotes and poems. Whatever you choose, she will look back on each year and smile.
