What to do on Mother’s Day In Lockdown?

Now that you’re all sorted with the perfect gift of Mother’s Day jewellery, it’s time to think about ways to spend the day to make it extra special. Below we’ve explored ways to spend the day with mum, which we could normally do with ease on Mother’s Day but this year is likely to be slightly different.

If you’re unsure of which gift to choose, why not select a voucher and let mum decide? Alternatively, why not try and make some of the below ideas at-home friendly?

For example, if you like the idea of a pampering session, see if you can order a pamper pack for both you and your mum. You can even be on a video call throughout the day to make it feel like you’re spending the day together. Alternatively, get yourselves a beautiful afternoon tea delivered from a local supplier, set it all up on some lovely crockery and catch up via a video call with some tea and tasty treats!

Whilst Mother’s Day in lockdown might not feel the same, and could well be a reminder of the things we’re missing out on, why not try to get creative and make it a day to remember. We’d love to know how you spend your Mother’s Day this year, so let us know in the comments!

Book a pampering session 

From booking a haircut or manicure together to heading for an entire afternoon of professional massages and treatments, planning a pamper session is a great way for the two of you to spend some much-needed downtime together.

Treat her to afternoon tea 

Scones, tea, sandwiches and cakes, who doesn’t love a traditional afternoon tea? This Mother’s Day, treat your mum to a quintessentially English afternoon out with the family.

With a selection of finger foods and sweet treats all just waiting to be washed down with a nice cup of tea (or maybe even a sneaky glass of bubbly!), afternoon tea is the perfect way for the whole family to enjoy Mother’s Day together. 

If you’re local to Hessle like us, we’d especially recommend the Black Cat Tea Room. This little gem uses locally-sourced products to prepare delicious food and homemade cakes, and as a plus, is located just around the corner from the Joshua James Jewellery store! You could even pop in and say hello afterwards, and we can help you and mum pick out the perfect piece of jewellery to finish off her special day. 

If Mother’s Day at home is the only option, Black Cat Tea Room are currently offering afternoon tea boxes for collection and delivery!

Cook for her 

She’s likely cooked for you more times than you can count in your lifetime, so this year, turn the tables and treat her to a home-cooked meal. With Mother’s Day falling on a Sunday, this is the perfect time to whip up the perfect Sunday roast. Just make sure she gets to sit with her feet up – and that means you do all the washing up too! 

If a packed Sunday lunch feels a bit ambitious, why not bake up her favourite sweet treat? A great way to get the kids involved, as they can help with any mixing and measuring and – most importantly – decorating! 

Take a trip to the theatre 

Mother’s Day is the ideal time to soak up some culture and go and see a show together. If there’s a play, musical or ballet she’s always wanted to see, now is the time to do it. With most theatre restaurants offering pre and post-theatre dining specials, get dressed up and make an entire evening of it – make it a night that she’ll remember forever! 

Spend quality time together 

Of course, the essential thing on Mother’s Day is simply spending time together. Any gesture, however little or large, is guaranteed to bring a smile to her face. Arrange a shopping trip, grab a coffee, head on a scenic walk together or, if you’re living away from home, schedule in some time for a lengthy Skype call  – we promise, she’ll be happy just to be spending time with you! 


Mother’s Day 2021 falls on Sunday, March 14th. For a further range of stunning Mother’s Day jewellery, watches and accessories to make a lovely gesture on this day and various other occasions, be sure to explore the complete Joshua James Jewellery collection and look out for more gifting advice on our blog!
