Stuck for what to buy your mum for Mother’s day this year? If she’s a tough one to buy for, how about treating her to a special day out? From afternoon tea in the city to pampering days in the country, here are some fantastic experience days from Buyagift to make her feel appreciated this Mother’s Day.
Take her for an afternoon tea treat
A luxurious afternoon tea treat is a fantastic way to celebrate Mother’s Day and say thanks for being a great mum. Whether it’s a champagne celebration at a Park Lane hotel or a fantastical tea party fit for Alice In Wonderland, they’ll be freshly baked cakes and pastries galore — not to mention a delicious array of teas to choose from.
For an indulgent experience, the London Park Lane Hilton will sate that sweet tooth with an out-of-this-world afternoon tea with pastries crafted by winners of Bake Off: The Professional 2018 Emmanuel and Sam.
Combine a vineyard tour with your afternoon tea treat for a full and fun afternoon of quality ‘mum time’. Begin in the vineyard learning about how vines are trained and grapes are grown to produce certain types and qualities of wine. Sample some of the vineyard’s wines on site and then choose between a delicious lunch or afternoon tea. This experience is available at various locations across the UK.
Book in a pampering session
A brilliant way to unwind and destress, a spa day is the ultimate treat for you and her. To be ultra indulgent, arrange to getaway for the whole weekend with a hotel stay for a deeply relaxing experience. If your mum has a busy schedule, a revitalising facial massage could be the restorative mid-week treat she’s been in need of.
For a day of serious relaxation, a Champney’s spa day really hits the spot. Enjoy an ultimate relaxation day that includes unlimited use of the facilities including, swimming pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool, gym, tennis courts and more.
Champney’s also have facials covered with spa locations across the country. A 25-minute relaxing facial is a perfect treatment to fit into her schedule whenever suits. She’ll come out feeling cleansed, rejuvenated and pampered.
Enjoy a luxurious dinner for two
For the mum who loves a good meal, a three-course dinner is a perfect gift. It’s a great way to catch up and spend time together in cosy and comfortable surroundings over some delicious food.
Make the meal extra special by dining on a Thames river cruise. Take in the delightful views of The Globe theatre, the Houses of Parliament, The Shard and The Gherkin, while indulging in a three-course dinner.
Spend the day together in a Café Rouge, a friendly Parisian style bistro. Enjoy some classic French dishes, including soupe à l’oignon, poulet Breton and crème brûlée, as part of a mouth-watering 3-course dinner.
Do something a little different
If you feel you’ve exhausted all the Mother’s Day options over the years — flowers, perfumes, kitchen utensils.. — it’s time to step it up. Give her an experience day she’ll never forget and never expect to receive.
Give your mum the flight of a lifetime up in the clouds and take in Britain like never before on an all-day balloon flight. You’ll float above patchwork fields and pick out tiny people from this utterly unique viewpoint of the world.
Is mum a fan of Downton Abbey? Take her on a day out in and around the grounds of Blenheim Palace, the set of the hit period drama. The fascinating guided tour, which includes a trip around the Cotswolds, gives a peek into history and the filming locations of Downton Abbey.
