How to plan the perfect Mother's Day

We know that mums come in all shapes and sizes, so we know that everyone’s approach to celebrating Mother’s Day is different. It’s time to put the people who always put you first, first.

First-time mums

Make their first Mother’s Day extra special with a relaxing line-up of food, drink and activities.

The gift

It’s the little things that mean the most, and you don’t need to splash out to make a statement. Follow our simple guide to make DIY skincare goodies and treat Mum to a homemade spa day.

Upgrade the pamper session with a G&T! Pick up a bottle of Co-op Irresistible gin alongside some tasty tonics at your local Nisa.

For Mums who are always on the go, some extra time in bed on Sunday morning won’t go amiss. Serve them breakfast in bed with a classic favourite like tea and toast, or go the extra mile with these delicious breakfast muffins.

The little things

End the day on a high note by picking up all of Mum’s favourite snacks from Nisa, ready for a cosy night on the sofa. Don’t forget to cue up their favourite film!

 

Mums with older children

Get the family together to pull out all the stops for someone who deserves the world. Mum will love being spoiled, and the grandkids can get involved in the prep, too.

The gift

Make Mum’s day with a gift hamper, curated by you with our help! Our £20 flowers, fizz, and chocolates (available in-store 9th to 29th March) deal is a great place to start, but you could always add some finishing touches with their favourites like jam, biscuits, or cheese.

Give Mum an experience to remember and Indulge in an afternoon tea with homemade scones. They’re surprisingly easy to make and can be frozen too, so make one big batch that Mum can keep enjoying after the big day.

The little things

Whether you’re a maximalist or minimalist when it comes to decor, napkin flowers will go down a treat. This is where the kids come in handy - rally the troops and fold some napkins into roses to add a thoughtful touch to afternoon tea.

 

Mother figures

Say ‘thanks’ to that special someone who is like a Mum with these simple yet heartwarming ideas.

The gift

Nothing shows you care quite like a bouquet of beautiful flowers (available in-store 22nd to 27th March). Head to your local Nisa to grab a classic or vibrant bunch - we’re sure that Mum will love either. Preserve the magic by pressing a flower - you can do this on your own or with Mum to create a long lasting souvenir great for scrapbooks.
