Get outdoors together
Whilst self-isolation and social distancing means we’re spending most of our time indoors, it’s important to get some fresh air too. Delight in a long and relaxing stroll with Mum (and maybe even the dog), whether in an inner-city park or welly-clad and out in the country.
Cosy up to a classic
Whilst heading to the cinema might be out of the question, there’s no reason why you can’t bring the movie theatre to you. Popcorn? Check. Cosy attire? Check. Classic movie? Also check. If you need some inspiration, look to our round up of the classic films worth revisiting.
Self-isolation calls for arts and crafts. Sit down with Mum on Sunday and get creative with flower arranging, patchwork, sketching and more. Look to our round up of biggest craft trends of 2020 for inspiration.
Treat Mum to breakfast in bed
Nothing says I love you quite like breakfast in bed. Cook up these delicious and ‘fuss-free’ Toast, Egg & Bacon Breakfast Bites from food writer Linda Tubby, deliver to Mum in bed, and remember to save one for yourself. Recipe here.
