Mother and Daughter Date Ideas
My mum’s birthday was a couple of days ago – Happy Birthday Mum! I know you’ll probably be reading this. 😉 And while we usually celebrate with a day trip or weekend away together, sadly, we haven’t been able to do that this year. Instead, we had a quiet evening at home, complete with flowers, gifts, foodie treats, and cake (of course!). But we are also hoping to plan a trip to Birdland later in the year too, which will be a belated treat for the two of us.
We both love experience gifts. They’re a great way to spend time together and we always have a lot of fun, whether we’re enjoying a relaxing spa breaks or socialising at fandom conventions.
If you and your loved ones also prefer experience gifts, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy my mother and daughter date ideas, whether you’re celebrating Mother’s Day, your birthdays, or simply spending the day together. Of course, these ideas can also be shared with your friends or other family members too. 🙂
Mother and Daughter Date Ideas
A spa day or weekend
Mum and I had our first spa day together last year and it was so so relaxing. We both had a mud back massage, followed by afternoon tea and a dip in the spa pool. The Jacuzzi was great at relaxing our muscles and we enjoyed a short swim too. We felt so pampered, refreshed, and even a little sleepy afterwards! We’re already planning our next one.
Head to your local town or city and treat your mum (and yourself) to a guilt free shopping trip. Try on some new clothes, indluge in some beauty products, head to your local comic book store – OK maybe that’s just our family! 😉 – and enjoy each other’s company. 🙂 You could even go out for lunch or afternoon tea afterwards too!
See a Show
Whether you love musicals, comedies, or drama, a trip to the theatre can be a great day out for the two of you. Pick something you’ll both enjoy or try something new and make a day of it. If you’re seeing a matinee, why not go for lunch afterwards? Or dinner before an evening show?
Go to a Concert
Luckily my mum and I share some of the same tastes in music, such as Meat Loaf, Bon Jovi and Busted, all of which we’ve been fortunate enough to see live in concert. It’s always a lot of fun; dancing, singing away, and getting the chance to see some of our favourite artists live.
Indulge in Afternoon Tea
Afternoon tea is a always a great option for a mother daughter date – tea, cake, finger foods, maybe a glass of bubbly, what’s not to love? You could even tie this in with another activity too, and make a day of it.
Visit a Zoo or Wildlife Park
I love going to the zoo or a wildlife park whenever I can. I think it’s a great day out and enjoy seeing all the different animals. We’ve been on countless family trips too, in fact, we used to take my Gran to Birdland when we were younger. Followed by Sunday lunch in Bourton-on-the-Water.
Go Hiking or For a Long Walk
I love hiking! So it should come as no surprise a long walk is on my list. Especially since it was my own mother that fuelled my love of the outdoors in the first place. It’s true, we often go on walks through the village, spotting the local wildlife and popping to the local pub for lunch. We’ve done this ever since I was little – it’s such a great way to spend time togther, and get some excercise too.
Enjoy a night away
If you can afford to, a weekend away in the big city, or perhaps a rural location is a great way to treat each other. My mum and I have had some great night’s out in London, including going to concerts, theatre at the West End, London’s Winter Wonderland, and even a ghost bus tour! Which I’d highly recommend, it’s cheesy, but so much fun.
Book a family photo shoot
Whether it’s just the two of you or a few of your immediate family, a family photo shoot can be a great way to spend sometime together. Especially if you get your hair and make-up done together too. 🙂
