5 ideas for this Mother's Day that won't cost the Earth

Mother’s Day is an excellent opportunity to honor the incredible women who have shaped our lives with love, care, and wisdom (love you, Mum!).

We've come up with five ways that'll create some pretty cool lasting memories. Whether the special woman in your life loves art, cooking, nature, crafts, or heartfelt conversations, here are some fabbo ideas to make this Mother’s Day truly unforgettable.


  1. Get Creative: Unleash your inner artist and paint or draw together. Set up a cozy corner with easels, canvases, brushes, and a palette of vibrant colors. Whether you’re recreating a beautiful landscape, painting portraits of each other, or experimenting with abstract art, the process of creating together fosters bonding and allows for self-expression. Don’t worry about perfection; just get something on the canvas!
  2. Get Cooking: Spend some time in the kitchen together, whipping up her favourite dishes or trying out new recipes together. Whether your Mum's got a sweet tooth or is more of a savoury snack gal, there are sooooo many winning recipes we've tried and tested here at Seed & Sprout that you're guaranteed to find something you'll both love. Cooking together can be a great way to spread the love - plus, you get to feast on it at the end! Win win! 
  3. Get Into Nature: Nature rejuvenates the soul. Take advantage of the beauty around you by spending Mother’s Day outdoors. Whether it’s a leisurely stroll in a local park, a swim at the beach, a trip to a local National Park, or a picnic by the water, immersing yourself in nature allows for meaningful conversations and moments of reflection. We've got so many picnic ready products including out Insulated Tea Flask, Insulated Cooler Bags, Smoothie Cups or Insulated Food Flasks that prepping delicious home cooked meals on-the-go is a breeze.
  4. Get Crafty: Tap into your creative side and indulge in some crafty activities like knitting or macrame. Grab some yarn, needles, and instructional videos to get you started! We've tried knitting scarves and crafting plant hangers with macrame before and it's surprisingly therapeutic (and hilarious at times). In theory, you'll end up with something to treasure together!
  5. Get Talking: Think of some questions you've always wanted to ask your mum. You can even get little conversation cards to get you going. Or look through photo books together. Pop the kettle on and reminisce together. If you've got kids, get them thinking about what they'd like to ask their grandmother!

Whether you’re getting creative, cooking up a storm, getting into nature or simply having a chat, taking time this Mother's Day to just hang and be with each other is good for the soul.

Here's to Mum's, everywhere!
