Mother’s Day at Beefeater
We know that Mother’s Day is going to look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t take a moment to celebrate Mum!
Whilst these days, Mother’s Day gifts tend to be flowers, jewellery or a meal out at her favourite restaurant, the origins of Mother’s Day go way back to the Ancient Greeks.
Rhea, the Mother of the Gods and Goddesses was celebrated every spring with festivals of worship. The Romans also celebrated a mother Goddess, Cybele, every March as far back as 250BC.
So, whilst you might not be going quite as far as a festival of worship for Mum (even if she does deserve it!) we know that you’ll make Mother’s Day 2021 the best it can be. Speaking from experience, doing the washing up is a great first step!
Even though we can’t cook for your mum this year, we can help you make it extra special for her…with some favourite Mother’s Day ideas from team Beefeater!
1. Give the Zoom Quiz a Mother’s Day makeover!
Can’t be with Mum this year? Celebrate her with a quiz that shows you really know and love her by putting a twist on the now-traditional virtual quiz.
2. Treat her to a relaxing spa day
Whilst you may not be able to visit an actual spa this year, recreate the experience at home with at-home beauty treatments, candles and a spa playlist. The relaxation is the important part! Send her a hamper of all the bits she’ll need, or get the whole family involved if you’re together.
3.Make some IOUs
Can’t do what you really want for Mother’s Day? DIY some cute coupons with promises for all the things you’ll do together when you can - whether it’s lunch together, a shopping spree or just a really big hug!
