Isn’t it wonderful that we have a day dedicated to appreciating mothers? Not that we shouldn’t be doing this every day but it is nice to have a excuse to shower one of the most important people in our lives with love and thanks for everything they have done for us.
Luckily, unlike Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day isn’t something that you have to book months in advance. Although as its now this weekend, it does now need to be done sooner rather than later. We’ve put a few ideas together here for fun ways to treat your mum this Mother’s Day.
We can’t apologise for recommending notonthehighstreet.com for a second time in a row, because they are inspired. Their Mother’s Day section has a whole host of gifts from nonsenses to splash out treats and ‘you’re just in time’ to get your presents before Sunday, so get browsing and buying right here, right now. We love the Natural Wax Aromatherapy Candle and frankly all of their personalised gifts!
Another favourite online venture of ours is Moon Pig. And this weekend when you buy one of their Mother’s Day gifts you get your Moon Pig card for free. It’s such an easy way to make that card a bit special – the magic of personalisation! Have a look here.
The Gift of Experience
As the saying goes, the best gifts are memories. So why not actually do something with your mum virtual reality headset as a present this year?
Culture Queen: it is a special occasion so rather than going to an every day exhibition, try something a bit different. We love the backstage tours at the BBC Broadcasting House. You get to learn all that goes on in the broadcasting hub and can even try making your own radio play! Alternatively, for a history fix, book the out-of-hours tour at the Imperial War Museum with an expert guide.
Loves Learning: The Idler Academy offers an array of different experiences from talks and courses on everything from beekeeping to creative writing. Everyone loves flowers. Fact. But to make it that bit more interesting than just buying them, join us on Mother’s Day for a Flower Arranging Master Class with our expert Ricky Paul and then take the finished result home. There are only a few spaces left – book yours here.
Say Thanks with Champagne…and a roast. Now you’re talking. Think of all those Sunday roasts your mother has lovingly prepared for you over the years. Well now you can return the favour. Join us at Drake & Morgan this Mother’s Day for a glass of bubbles and a delicious Sunday roast, all for £14.95pp. Available at 7 of our beautiful bars & restaurants, book your table now to avoid disappointment.
