THE PERFECT MOTHER’S DAY CELEBRATION - LOCKDOWN STYLE
Mother’s Day falls on 14th March for the UK this year. Discover our top Mother’s Day gift ideas as well as top tips to make the day just as special as any other year for that special role model in your life.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner and the world still locked down, it’s going to require a little more imagination than usual to make this a super special day. And, whilst you may not be able to ask everyone round for a special Mother’s Day inspired lunch, it's a chance to get inventive and create something a little outside the (tea) box.
Celebrate your mum, the mum to your children, that special someone who’s always been there or even the mama to your four-legged fur babies - this Mother’s Day (Sunday 14th March) they deserves to be spoilt more than ever and we’ve got all the tea-inspired gift ideas for a Mother’s Day to remember.
BREAKFAST IN BED
Make a breakfast to remember, and add some much-needed peace to the start of their day with a delicious English breakfast in bed. Think tea tray laden with flowers, orange juice, perfectly brewed cup of tea, and a breakfast of their choice. And, if you’re not at home this year then why not have a delicious Mother’s Day gift bag delivered to their doorstep with all their favourite treats - like our Mums Breakfast Favourites Gift Bag.
VIRTUAL SUNDAY LUNCH
The ultimate way to celebrate Mother’s Day is by cooking up a storm with a traditional Sunday roast but if you’re celebrating from afar this year then why not opt for a less traditional Sunday lunch via a video call? And if a roast is not on the takeaway menu why not have their favourite foodie treats delivered to them instead? Then gather around your respective tables and dine together via the power of the internet.
WALK + TALK
Nothing beats a proper chat, either in person or on the phone, but if lockdown means you can’t walk and talk together this Mother’s Day then why not plan a call instead? Simply schedule a time when you’ll both be around for a walk. And with the perfect accompaniment for a walk and talk being a warm drink on the go don’t forget to send them a new takeaway KeepCup for the occasion!
AFTERNOON TEA TREATS
Something bought, something made – it’s always such a treat to be spoilt with a pretty gift but some homemade goodies will always go down a storm. Get your bake on and make some cakes and treats to go with your Mother’s Day hamper or gift bag? You can’t go wrong with these delicious strawberry and raspberry scones! And, if you want to go all-out, why not treat them to a beautiful new tea set?
Mother’s Day falls perfectly in spring when everything’s starting to really bloom which makes a floral delivery the ideal gift. Brighten up this Mother’s Day with a floral-inspired gift such as a fresh bouquet, a house plant or even some dried flowers to last throughout the month and beyond.
PAMPER MUM WITH A HOMEMADE SPA
Help create a magical homemade spa at home, from a gorgeous bubble bath and candles to their favourite magazine and a few yummy treats to help them indulge even more. Why not select some delicious teas and serve in the perfect pot for one to help them relax and unwind?
VIRTUAL TEA MASTERCLASS
And, if you’re looking for a gift with a real difference then why not buy the experience of one of our virtual tea masterclasses? The perfect ‘ready to gift’ experience for a tea-loving someone.
Whatever you do to celebrate this Mother’s Day, it really is the thought that counts. A cup of tea shared with that special role model really does go a long way!
