Just like I’m not too fond of overly expensive presents for Valentine’s Day, I don’t think that your expression of love for your mother should be measured in breathtakingly expensive perfume and diamond encrusted Swarovski pens. This year I challenge you to get your mum something special for this year’s Mother’s Day – something that both of you can enjoy together, because after all, that’s what she probably wishes for the most!
✓ Le Chefs: Has your mum always tried to teach you her favourite recipes but you’ve never had the patience or the interest to learn it? Book your mum & yourself for an evening class in your local cookery school. Or if you’re on a budget then try following a cookery class online, my favourite is Jamie’s FoodTube.
✓ The floral daze: Is your mum an enthusiastic gardener? Try asking at your local florist’s whether they offer evening classes of floristry. I’d love to take part one day! And of course don’t forget a beautiful bunch of flowers! These tulips are from my beloved Blossoming Gifts. You can get cheap Mother’s Day flowers on their website plus also 33% off – use BGIFTS33 (selected lines only).
✓ Explorers.com: There are so many affordable day/weekend out trip offers that you can take advantage of! Hope on the train from London to Paris for something silly like £30 (that’s less than the cost of a dress from Oasis, just saying) and make this year’s Mother’s Day a little bit more special for your mum (and you)!
✓ Bob-Rossin’ it: For all the arty mums out there – the Bob Ross master paint set (click here) is da bomb. It’s stupidly expensive but it’s legendary!
