4 Fail-Safe Surprises for Mother’s Day


Mother's day surprise ideas

For one reason or another, Mother’s Day always seems to sneak up us on here at Sophie Allport. The lull after Christmas and Valentine’s Day (and our daydreams firmly focused on Spring sunshine and warmer weather) means that Mothering Sunday tends to slip our minds until we’re reminded to start shopping for those all-important Mother’s Day gifts. But this year, we’re getting a head start on everyone else, so why not do the same if you fancy pulling off a Mother’s Day to remember? Here are four fail-safe surprises for Mother’s Day that are bound to leave your mum feeling every inch as special as they are. 

A Lie In. There’s something extra decadent about staying in bed and having someone bring you a steaming cup of tea or coffee in a beautiful mug while the rest of the world gets on with the day.

A special breakfast. For a Mother’s Day idea that hints at an extra special effort, how about preparing a lovely breakfast? Enlist little helpers to set the table (we’re always impressed with a clean table linens, fresh flowers, and beautiful glassware), then set to work in the kitchen rustling up her favourite breakfast.

A Spa Day. If you’d like to splash out on a more special treat, why not surprise her with a trip to the spa for later on in the year? This is a thoughtful treat that’s particularly lovely when shared with sisters, grandmother’s and special friends - after all, who doesn’t enjoy catching up while wrapped in warm, fluffy robes? Or you could create a spa-at-home with our bath & body range, a relaxing candle, some cosy towels and her favourite book.

A Day Of Rest. And seeing as this special occasion always falls on a Sunday, sort the lunchboxes, school uniforms and book-bags well in advance… that way there’s nothing for her to do but lounge on the sofa in her PJs.
