Create a Special Mother’s Day Lunch

Mothers Day Dinner, McGills Hairdressing Salon in EdinburghWhilst Mother’s Day is often a welcome opportunity to get out for a family meal, this year will look slightly different, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a meal together (sort of).

Is there a family recipe you’ve always wanted to learn how to make yourself? Why not ask your mum to spill the beans and make it together! If you have children at home, make it a multi-generational experience and give your children a head start on perfecting the recipe for when they are grown up.

If this isn’t for you, why not treat mum to a delicious meal from a local eatery? Many are providing local delivery or pick ups of their best dishes, you could even deliver one to Mum yourself if you live nearby.

Treat Mum To a Monthly Gift

Monthly subscription boxes have become increasingly popular over the past 12 months and can range from beauty boxes, books and even wine tasting subscriptions! The choice is endless and a monthly subscription is the gift that keeps giving throughout the year.

Do you normally buy your mum a special Mother’s Day bouquet? Why not make it a monthly treat with a blooming wonderful flower subscription? In these challenging times, with many facing isolation and loneliness, having something lovely to look forward to can be invaluable for their wellbeing. 

Create a Mother’s Day “Pamper Hamper”

DAVINES PAMPER McGills HairdressingWhilst mum can’t visit our Edinburgh hair salon for Mother’s Day this year, why not create a hamper filled with her favourite professional hair products so that she can enjoy a pampering session in the comfort of her own home?

We stock the sensational Davines products in our online shop, which are free from harmful parabens, sulphates and are completely carbon neutral! With many of us looking for a more conscious way of living, this is one way to show mum you care about her and the environment. Browse our Davines range here

There are many online stores that sell lovely gift hamper baskets and you can involve the whole family in choosing products to fill the basket to drop off at her home. 

Host A Mother’s Day Family Quiz

Did you take part in family Zoom quizzes during the first lockdown? Recreate the fun this Mother’s Day with a “mum” themed quiz!

Questions could include your mum’s favourite foods, movies and holiday destinations. Make the game more interesting by asking each participant to come up with their own quiz round – and get your mum to do her own round too!
