The Perfect Mother's Day

3 min readGuest Bloggers


Everyone at Millets HQ love spoiling their Mum’s on Mother’s Day. Whether they enjoy a family walk, breakfast in bed, or a day at the spa, it doesn't matter as long as the day is all about them.

We’ve picked a few of our favourite outdoors mummy bloggers to tell us what they are looking forward to this Mother’s Day. Here’s what they had to say…

I'll be spending Mother's Day at Centre Parcs this year with my partner and our two sons. I'm hoping to start the day with breakfast in bed (fingers crossed they pick up on my hints!) then walking through the forest, hunting for bugs, splashing in puddles, riding bikes and then going swimming. I'm sure that will tire the boys out so I can spend the evening enjoying a nice meal and a glass of wine!

My favourite part of Mother’s Day is when the kids wake me up in the morning with their homemade cards, and their version of breakfast in bed. I’ve had everything from ketchup on bread, to coffee and croissants over the years! Although their Dad and I are separated we are still good friends and he will always make sure they have something to give me on the day. Later on we’ll all go for a long walk together - we’re very lucky to have mountains, beach and forests surrounding us, so the only problem is choosing where to go. Mother’s Day is always a day I count my blessings – and my three children are top of that list.

We won't be straying too far from home this Mother's Day. There are two new additions to our family: Trolli and Freya, baby rabbit sisters who are just getting used to their new home, and we want to hang out with them. We'll probably go for a walk in the local woods, before coming home for a slap-up lunch in the garden, watching the bunnies gambol. Mother's Day is on the last weekend before we head off to the Austrian ski slopes for Easter, so I'll no doubt be doing some last-minute Mum-admin in the afternoon, checking everyone has their baselayers and salopettes all ready for the Alps!

On Mother's Day I will be on a long cliff top walk somewhere along the Cornish coastline with my little family, stopping for hot chocolates and no doubt a lot of photo taking. There is nothing quite like a strong sea breeze and stunning views to make you feel alive. 

If the weather is horrendous, then I will just be happy to be with my family anywhere. Though the hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows is a deal breaker.

Victoria: This mothering Sunday I will be indulging in the ultimate gift, packing for a week away solo. Although I love travelling with my family, and frequently do, there comes a point in a mother's life when she simply needs a break! My husband and kids have generously treated to me to a stay in Explora, one of Chile's leading boutique hotels in Torres del Paine, Patagonia. Once I've had my fix of outdoor adventure there, I will meet my family to spend a week exploring Santiago and Chile's Lake District.

Katja: On Mother's Day I will be with my family exploring San Cristobal de las Casas, the cultural capital of the Mexican state of Chiapas. I've been wanting to visit this part of the country since we moved to Mexico City five years ago and so I decided to treat myself...and my family! San Cristobal promises to be a fascinating destination; a city that has retained its Spanish colonial layout with cobblestone streets and red-tiled roofs but with a strong indigenous influence. It's also well-known for its textiles, which will make the perfect Mother's Day gift.

With a six year old who has boundless energy, rarely does a weekend pass by without some kind of outdoor fun. Whether it’s escaping to Center Parcs, heading to the forest or exploring a National Trust favourite, fresh air and laughter is a must. Mother’s Day will be no exception. She will draw a ‘map’ so we can spot the signs of spring, in-between collecting ‘treasure’ and climbing trees! Having blown away the cobwebs, it’s back to cook up a roast with all the trimmings before relaxing in front of a great family film.
