I don't know about you but I really struggle to think of ideas of what to do for Mother's Day. One because I don't live close to my mom anymore and two because she's quite hard to please (don't worry, she doesn't read my blog haha). I always try to buy her a nice gift when I can but over the last couple of years we've been focusing more on things we can do together so today I wanted to share three simple, budget-friendly ways to treat the special lady in your life.
three simple ways to treat your mom this mother's day

Go For A Coffee DateI don't think I've ever heard anyone say no to a coffee date - unless you're one of the few people like my brother who hates hot drinks. Starbucks, Costa and all of the pretty pink caf├ęs with flower walls have become the new social meeting hubs and whilst it's such a simple thing I personally love setting aside forty minutes to an hour to just sit, enjoy my drink (or two) and have a good catch up. Plus it's the perfect opportunity for a photo op!

Have A Pamper Day | You guys know I love a good pamper sesh and whenever my mom and I are together I'm always showing her new beauty bits that I'm testing or giving her a mini makeover so this year I'm definitely going to turn that into a full-on girl's day. We both love finding new bath and shower products and because our skin is so similar we tend to love the same products. I've recently been loving the Nivea Shower Silk Rhubarb Raspberry Mousse* which smells absolutely amazing and leaves my skin so soft and smooth. I'm definitely going to be buying her a bottle! I've also discovered their new Q10 3 in 1 Radiance BB Cushion* which is a great pick for after the pampering when you want something a bit lighter and fresher on the skin It has a gorgeous sheen, hydrating formula and anti-ageing properties! It's definitely one to check out! We're both guilty of putting our hands through the works and the Nivea Intensive Nourishing Hand Cream* is a must-have for keeping them properly nourished and hydrated. It's formulated with almond oil and smells incredible - love!  

Girls Night In | You can't really go wrong with a girl's night in and for my mom and me that usually means one thing - junk food and Netflix. We both love finding a new series or movie, especially if it's a horror/thriller. Friends has been the recent go-to (shocker) but we really want to try something new so if you have any recommendations send them my way! Of course, no girls night is complete without pizza, popcorn and a G&T if you're feeling extra spiffy. Oh and chocolate, don't forget the chocolate! 


Do you have anything fun planned for Mother's Day?
