Sunday 14th March provides a great opportunity to show Mum how much she's appreciated. Here are just some of the thoughftul little things to make for Mother's Day.

8.30am: Breakfast In Bed

This is a top idea if you're still lucky enough to live with your mum - or if the kids want to do something special for their mummy. It doesn't have to be anything fancy - a refreshing smoothie, pile of pancakes, smoked salmon or a nice plate of fruit will go down a treat. Pick from our selection of breakfast recipes here.

3pm: DIY Spa Afternoon

Make an Avocado face mask and let mum chill out with a good book, or a well-deserved bubble bath. Simply mash half a ripe avocado until it is as smooth as you can get it, then leave it for her to massage onto her face and leave it for 15 minutes before rinsing off.
