How to save money this Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day make sure to treat the mother figure in your life with a special treat. Below you will find some interesting ideas to celebrate this year.

Get baking

If you’re short of money, baking a cake is a cost effective and thoughtful way to show how much you love her. There are lots of recipes which can be accessed online and are easy to follow. Check out BBC good food guide.

Mother’s Day meal

Most of the main chain restaurants will offer some sort of Mother’s Day deal, so make sure you do your research before you book a table.

From free fizz to free desserts, and even ‘Mum’s Eat Free’ deals, there are a lot of ways to save money on Mother’s Day. Check out this Mother’s Day dedicated page with some great offers and discounts.

Alternatively, if money is tight, invite her round for dinner. Try making it extra special by laying the table nicely and lighting a candle.

Create a photo album

Print off some of your family photos from over the years and put them in a photo album. Lots of websites and apps now offer free prints, so make sure you make the most of these.

Hold a DIY spa day 

Mum deserves to put her feet up and relax after everything she has done for you and your family. Run her a bath, create homemade face masks. You could also give her a hand massage or paint her nails – the options are endless. You’ll be able to find a playlist of relaxing spa songs for free on YouTube, so you can create a relaxing ambience for no extra cost. Why not use one of these free cheques and pledge to do something nice for your mum.

Personalise a gift basket

If your mother has a favourite thing, why not put together a gift basket filled with hand-picked items (by you, of course) that is filled with those things? You could do her favourite snacks, spa products, movies, and so many other options. Make sure that you include a handwritten gift note and that your gifts are things that she will enjoy.

But remember…Thoughtfulness melts the heart far more than an expensive present and time is often the most precious thing we can gift”.

Happy Mother’s Day!
