Just choose a class that will show you both how to cook her favourite dishes and her most-loved cuisine. Then, watch her face light up as she learns the ropes!

5.   Host an extra-special games night

If you’re searching for Mother’s Day ideas with a difference, but ones that are still low key for a more introverted mum, why not host a games night at your place? This can involve anything from a quiz tournament to a personalised game of bingo. All that’s required of you is to plan it in advance, get the paper and pens ready and provide some nibbles for her to enjoy in between each round. Let’s just hope she’s the winner on the day!

6.   Make her a charcuterie board to gobble up

Buy her favourite salami, prosciutto, chorizo and cheeses and make a charcuterie board for her to gobble up at your house. Set the dinner table up with candles and “Happy Mother’s Day” banners to make her feel a million dollars as she takes a seat. You could even design placemats for everyone who’s attending. If you don’t quite have the time to craft a charcuterie board, go all out and take a look at the deliverable options online instead. She’ll be happy either way, trust us.!

7.   Serve her a delightful breakfast in bed

Obviously, you want your Mother’s Day ideas to be top-notch and original. But sometimes a golden olden tradition is just what the greatest woman in your life deserves. So, pre-prepare a delightful breakfast for your mum to devour on her special day, pop it on a tray and bring it to her in bed.

And if you don’t live with her, or won’t be there on the morning of Mother’s Day, send her other half the goods beforehand, as well as strict instructions to deliver this food-filled treat to her before she gets up!

8.   Take her on a vineyard tour
