Introduction: Why Celebrate Mother’s Day?
Mother’s Day is a special day to celebrate motherhood. In the UK this year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, 19th March.
You can show your mum how much you appreciate her by making her breakfast in bed, giving her a bouquet of flowers, or taking her out for a special lunch. But sometimes the most thoughtful gifts are those that don’t cost anything at all.
Here are some ideas for free or low-cost ways to make your mum feel loved and appreciated on Mother’s Day:
- Write her a heartfelt letter expressing your gratitude for all she has done for you.
- Make a homemade card or craft with your children.
- Frame a favourite photo of the two of you together.
- Give her a coupon book filled with “IOUs” for things like foot rubs, vacuuming the house, or doing the grocery shopping.
- Plan a fun activity to do together such as going for a walk in the park, visiting a museum, or having afternoon tea.
- Simply tell her how much you love her and give her a big hug!

Acts of Kindness for Tired Mums
We all know that being a mum is hard work. But sometimes, it can feel like an emotional rollercoaster. Here are some ideas if your mum is feeling a bit burnt out:
1. Listen to her vent. Sometimes all she needs is someone to listen to her frustrations and worries. Let her know that you’re there for her and offer a shoulder to cry on if she needs it.
2. Take over some of her chores. For example, doing the weekly food shop or even just unloading the dishwasher. Giving your mum a break from her everyday routine will help relieve some of the stress she’s feeling.
3. Plan a fun day out together. Sometimes, all it takes is quality time together to make your mum feel special. Plan an outing to somewhere she loves, or just spend the day chatting and catching up.
4. Write her a heartfelt letter expressing how much you appreciate everything she does for you. Sometimes, the simplest gesture can mean the world.
Acts of Kindness for Elderly or Sick Mums
1. Cook her a special meal: If your mum is elderly or sick, cooking up her favourite meal is a lovely gesture. Something that they may struggle to do in their everyday lives.
2. Help out around the house, such as vacuuming, dusting, doing the laundry, or even just running errands for her.
3. Spend time with her in a restful and calm environment: Spending quality time with a loved one really can go a long way. You can simply sit and have a chat, watch TV together, or play a game or complete a puzzle. Something that may seem so simple and mundane to you can mean the world to them.
How to Use Social Media To Show Mum You Care

4. Start an online photo album dedicated to your favourite moments with your Mum and invite family and friends to contribute their own photos and memories too.

If your mum is a baking wizz, constantly whipping up scrumptious creations a brand new apron or pair of oven gloves make for a lovely gift that is personal to her and her hobbies.
