Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day may look different this year —  that doesn’t mean it has to be any less special. This Mother’s Day, use a bit of creativity of pre-planning to make this year’s celebration one of the most special yet! Our in-house nutritionist Clarissa shares her top treats below:

Send a Cocktail Set 
There is something about a cocktail and the extra oomph it adds to the end of a week or a meal. So, this Mother’s Day, why not send your mum a curated cocktail set or make your own for her to try out? And even better, you can both jump on zoom/facetime, follow a recipe together and toast over the camera. Why not try our MEDA No-Lo variety box paired with her favourite spirit or bubbles for a delicious and nutritious drinks idea?

Make a Video 
Everyone can be a filmmaker these days with the latest smart phone in their hands. Make your mum a video telling her about your favourite memories, why you love her, what message you want to tell her today. If that isn’t your thing – make a photo montage of some of your favourite moments.

Send Something Homemade  
Have you got creative in the kitchen or mastered a new skill during these several lockdowns? Take that and make something special for your mum. If baking is your thing make a decadent cake or batch of cookies you can deliver or pop in the post. Jams, chutneys, breads and flavoured oils can be a lovely gift too. If you prefer crafts you could consider making homemade candles, photo books or even a painting/ drawing.

At Home Spa Kit
While treatments and spas are shut at the moment, that doesn’t mean we can’t pamper ourselves at home. Make your mum an at home spa kit filled with some of the below:

·      Epsom salts for a warm bath

·      Essential oils – we like Neal’s Yard

·      Face, hand and body creams with her favourite scent

·      A crystal rose quartz or jade face roller

·      Candles or diffusers

·      Bath bomb
