Stuck on how to spend Mother’s Day? Here are 20 things to do with your mum this year

20 Mother's Day activities to do

As a person typically juggling many hats and day-to-day tasks, it can sometimes feel like our mother's and maternal figures have no time to themselves at the end of a busy week. In-between the never-ending list of 'mum duties' and everyday chaos, a designated time for herself seems non-existent, perhaps event a tad preposterous. That's why when Mother's Day rolls around, sometimes the best thing you can do is spoil your mum with a day in – or out – depending on what she fancies. For a foolproof list of recommendations of things to do this Mother's Day, simply look no further.

Here, our guide of things to do this Mother's Day is sure to provide a solution to your planning woes; regardless of your mum's needs and wants. From indulgent spa and therapy treatments, to weekends spend in wine country, paint-and-sip experiences and of course, plenty of delicious food and drink to see you through the day's festivities before unwinding with a cultured night out at the ballet. We guarantee this will earn your brownie points and make you the favourite child.
