If you’re celebrating Mother’s Day this year, we have the ultimate guide to make sure the day is special even in lockdown.

Mother’s Day is the time of the year you can spoil your mum (or be spoilt if you are a mum!) This past year has been particularly challenging – homeschooling parents, we’re looking at you! –  so here’s our guide to make sure everything is as lovely as possible.

Gift Ideas

We have lots of ethical gift ideas on the Viva! Shop. What better way to celebrate than by supporting our charity and getting a lovely gift! Here are our top picks:

Booja Booja Truffle Selection No. 1

These award-winning vegan truffles are the perfect present for any chocolate lover. The melt-in-your-mouth truffles are made to the highest quality, leaving them elegant and silky. The ultimate indulgence for Mother’s Day.

I’d Rather Be Saving Animals T-shirt

Spring is just around the corner so we all need a little update to our summer wardrobes. This lovely t-shirt is perfect for wearing your heart on your sleeve in a subtle way.

3D Tote Bag

This sustainable tote bag is the perfect way to inject a bit of character into your accessories. Choose from our cheeky cow, fluffy fox or perfect pig! 

Adopt Toto the Fox

What do you get for the mum who has everything? One of our adoption packs of course! Supporting one of our animals at the Viva! Poland sanctuary is the perfect gift for your animal-loving mum. Toto the fox is beyond adorable and would love to be adopted by you!

Activity Ideas

Cook a Special Meal

Show your mum how much you care by cooking her a delicious vegan meal. We’ve picked out our best recipes from Vegan Recipe Club to make your special meal as simple as possible:

Cashew Cream & Beetroot Crostini

Vegan Recipe Club Cashew Cream & Beetroot Crostini
Vegan Recipe Club Cashew Cream & Beetroot Crostini

These tasty treats make for a delicious starter for a fancy meal. The sweet roasted beetroot combined with the hazelnuts and cashew cream is truly heavenly, we’re sure your mum will love it.


This is the ultimate vegan version of the traditional Greek dish! Tender aubergines, rich vegetable mince, thick creamy béchamel sauce and lots of vegan cheese. Delicious! Enjoy it with a light salad to compliment the flavours.

Frangipane Tart by Rose Elliot

Finish off your decadent Mother’s Day meal with this light dessert by our guest chef, Rose Elliot. Light, crisp pastry with a frangipane topping over a delicate layer of jam. Everyone who tries it loves it, and we’re sure your mum will be no exception.

Movie Night

If cooking isn’t your thing, why not organise a vegan movie night with your mum. Order in our Vegan Treat Surprise Box and grab the blankets for an at-home movie experience. HOGWOOD, our vegan documentary, is a great option – have the tissues ready!
