BRITAIN LOVES MUMS – TOP 10 THINGS TO DO FOR MOTHERS DAY.
While it goes without saying that all mums are individuals with their own hobbies, tastes and favourite indulgences, there's some treats that are basically universal. While it's worth getting stuck into Google for ideas local to you, we've rounded up some easy crowd pleasers that promise to maximize on your time together this Mother's Day
Looking for somewhere fun to take mum this Mother's Day? How about Covent Garden's Gloria brunch event? The evening comes with 2 fabulous hours of free-flowing drinks, alongside a banging brunch. And best of all, you'll get to hear all your fave ABBA hits at this musical themed happening.
TRADITIONAL AFTERNOON TEA
Indulge in a quintessentially British Afternoon Tea, the perfect treat for mums on their special day. The most famous of them all is Tea at the Ritz hotel or why not take a trip our one of the many fine country house hotels near you offering a Traditional Afternoon Tea. If you fancy having it at home why not bake it yourself or order one of our afternoon teas, we just launched our spring and Easter afternoon tea, made fresh and delivered to your door with a special offer just £26 delivered use code MUM2022
It's an obvious choice for a reason - mum's absolutely love to be treated to a trip to the spa. you've got the cash to splash, there's loads of UK spas that offer special Mother's Day themed packages at this time of year. And if you don't? Some quiet time away from the kids, a bottle of prosecco and some sheet masks will do the job.
GO SHOPPING OR WINDOW SHOPPING
While shopping on the high street may have declined in popularity recently, there's no denying the bonding power it has for mums and their daughters. Treat mum to a new dress, lunch or a cinema stop off for extra 'favourite child' points.
BREAKFAST IN BED
An oldie but a good-ie, you're never too old to whip your mum up a lavish breakfast and serve it to her on a tray with a compulsory flower. Sure-fire winners are croissants, jams, pastries and bunch of flowers and - if we remember correctly from childhood – not freezing cold beans on burnt toast.
BAKE A CAKE
Why not get yourself into the kitchen and bake something special for mum, her favourite cake or bake treat and get the family around to celebrate together with some bubbles or cocktails, we have two perfect baked treats she will love try our limited edition Pink Gin & Tonic or Classic G&T cake with everything you need in the box. From now until mother’s day just £15, that’s £10 off
MAKE A PHOTO BOOK
If you’re anything like us, we have heaps of photos on our phones and always tell ourselves we’re going to get some printed but somehow never get around to doing it. Likewise, when was the last time you had some pictures printed of you and your mum? (on the front of a Moonpig card doesn’t count). Surprise her with a photobook made with some of your favourite snaps - places like Papier make this super easy to do - and you can send the finished product straight to her. She’ll adore it.
Daughters and sons of green-fingered mums will know there's nowhere she loves to be more than in her garden or allotment. For a free activity that your mum will love, spend the day together weeding, sowing and pruning - her spick and span garden will last almost as long as the special memories.
RIDE A PRIVATE CAPSULE ON THE LONDON EYE
The London Eye has various exciting experiences available, you can add canapes and champagne to make the Mother’s Day experience extra special. Mother’s Day the London Eye are offering a FREE bottle of Pommery Brut Champagne for every Friends and Family capsule booked on the London Eye over Mother’s Day weekend.
SOME TIME TO HERSELF
The cherry on top of a perfect day spent together as a family may just be giving Mum a little bit of downtime to spend by herself. If she’s like many mums, the past 14 months have been spent pouring a lot of love and energy into her family, without a lot of time for rest for herself. Giving her a chance to catch up on a book, go for a walk and listen to a podcast, have a relaxing bath, or even head to bed early is better than anything money can buy.
