A parent, a teacher, a best friend, and even a shoulder to cry on. It’s remarkable how a single person can fulfil numerous roles in your life. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, here are 7 ideas to get the family together and honour the most important woman in your life.

1. Family Reunion

Nothing would please a mother more than the sight of all her children and grandchildren gathered in her honour. Set the table, prepare a scrumptious dinner and make a toast to the joyous occasion. Don’t forget to take a family photo at the end!

2. Mother’s Day Brunch

For all the early mornings where she has swiftly packed your school lunches and got you ready for your day, surprise her with a delicious brunch with the family. Take her out to a fancy restaurant where she can blissfully eat her pancakes without having to worry about you or the grandchildren.

3. Movie Marathon

There is nothing more intimate and homely than watching a good movie together with good company! Pick your mother’s favourite movie or watch the beloved classics from her younger days. Make her feel special and appreciated by choosing movies with motherhood and family themes.

4. Weekend Getaway

Pack those suitcases and organise a short trip to a nearby resort!  Your mother will appreciate the effort and will savour the spontaneity of the moment. Also, nothing spells fun like an impromptu family holiday.

5. Scrapbooking Spree

Bring out the family albums and get your creative juices flowing as you create a family scrapbook. Have a good laugh along the way as you go through old memories with your mother. Here’s a bonus — your children will love to get crafty too!

6. Sweet Treats

Does your mother have a sweet tooth? Treat her to a mouth-watering basket of her favourite goodies to remind her how much you love her. Make it even more special by bringing the whole family together to bake and prepare these sweet treats.

7. Spa Retreat 

Put a smile on her face by treating her to a ladies-only spa retreat. To take it up a notch, get the help of your family members to host a spa day at home. Light up some candles to set the ambience and allow her to wind down. Ensure that your mother gets the invigorating treatment that she deserves.
