Whether you enjoy indulging in afternoon tea, spending time in nature, exploring farms and theme parks, raving(!) or doing craft activities with your kids, there's something for everyone to enjoy this Mother's Day. Here's our round-up of the best Mother's Day activities, events and days out from around the UK.

What do you usually do on Mother's Day?

Mother’s Day is that one special day of the year dedicated to showing your mom just how much she means to you. You might have a few traditions, such as cooking breakfast in bed for your mom, or maybe you love surprising her with a new activity each year. Whether it's a laid-back day at home filled with her favorite songs and relaxation or a fun outing, the best approach is to think about what makes your mom happy and go from there.

How do I make my mum feel special?

To make your mum feel special, think about what brings her joy and show appreciation in those areas. Little acts of kindness, such as helping with household chores or preparing her favourite meal, go a long way. Nothing quite says 'You're important' like going the extra mile to ensure the important woman in your life has a stress-free, blissful day.

What special thing can I do for Mother's Day experiences?

A special thing you can do for Mother’s Day is to give your mum a day filled with love and attention. This could mean crafting a homemade gift, planning a day full of activities she enjoys, or simply spending quality time together. How about a picnic in her favourite park, where you’ve planned every detail down to her best-loved snacks? Whatever you choose, an example of a great way to make the day memorable is to personalise the experience to her interests.

Where should I take my mum for Mother's Day?

Think about what your mum loves to do most, and use that as inspiration for where to take her. Is she a fan of the arts? A trip to a local gallery or museum might be a hit. Or perhaps she’s more outdoorsy – in which case, a day out in nature or a stroll through a beautifully curated garden could be just the ticket. The idea is to pick a place where your mum can feel celebrated and relaxed.

What are some places to go on Mother's Day?

Mother’s Day is the perfect time to break from the routine – go somewhere special that your mum doesn't expect but will undoubtedly enjoy. It could be as simple as visiting a café she's been eyeing, or more adventurous, like a scenic drive to an unknown destination. The key here is to consider your mum’s interests: if your mum's a fan of history, she might enjoy a historic house tour. Meanwhile, if she's a gardening enthusiast, she might prefer a trip to a botanical garden.

Where can I take my mum for a day out?

Taking your mum for a day out can range from anything like a shopping spree in her favourite boutiques to a relaxing spa day. You could also explore new activities like a cooking class or check out a craft workshop if she’s a bit of a DIY enthusiast. Remember that fun ideas can also include more laid-back options, such as watching a movie together or simply going for a walk.
