Our favourite gift ideas for Mother’s Day
To honour your mum this Mother's Day, we recommend ditching the cheesy gifts (read: bath salts) and opting for a meaningful present that your mum will truly adore. With Mother's Day around the corner, we have compiled our list of the perfect ways to spoil and thank the special lady in your life.
If you can't see your mum in person this Mother's Day, or simply want to surprise her with some blooms straight to her door, this is the ideal gift. Letterbox flowers are delivered in bud, so usually last longer, and give the recipient the joyous task and creative outlet of arranging the blooms themselves. We love the offerings from Bloom & Wild, which come with styling tips included — you can even throw in the likes of Cowshed goodies or luxury chocolates to guarantee smiles all round.
Some much-needed R&R
A spa gift is always a welcomed treat, whether your mum needs some pampering or simply to put her feet up. If she's in need of some proper downtime, you'll earn some real brownie points with one of our Travelzoo hotel deals available either for a staycation here in the UK or abroad. Many of these offers come with built-in extras like meals, spa treatments, or relaxing activities to help mum unwind. This 5-star break in a fairytale Czechia spa town, complete with treatments and unlimited access to the spa facilities, certainly ticks all the boxes for our dream gift.
Afternoon tea with a twist
Afternoon tea is our favourite meal of the day. If your mum agrees, then she'll love tucking into her tea and cake in an entirely novel way. With the B Bakery Afternoon Tea Bus Tour, you can hop aboard a vintage red London bus and take in the capital's famous sights (Harrods, Trafalgar Square, the Houses of Parliament, and more) while indulging in this all-time favourite treat. You can go for the classic afternoon tea or add some cheeky G&Ts to celebrate your special occasion. For those who would prefer to stay in, they (conveniently) do afternoon tea deliveries, too.
Here at Travelzoo, we can't think of a better occasion than Mother's Day to gift your mum with a lovely afternoon tea deal. She'll get a unique experience she won't find anywhere else, and you'll both enjoy a memorable day out together. Our top picks include the pastel-hued Peggy Porschen Afternoon Tea with champagne at Michelin-starred Céleste at The Lanesborough, or afternoon tea at Secret Garden, set in a restored coach house with a cobbled courtyard in the Kent countryside.
If you're looking for ways to connect to your inner creativity right now, why not channel this energy into making a heartfelt gift that your mum will treasure? Personalised photobooks or calendars are a wonderful way to immortalise and display your mum's favourite family snaps. If you're feeling particularly creative, you and your mum could join in the latest wreath-making craze and learn a new craft together. There are workshops available all over the country, and these aren't simply reserved for Christmas time. Alternatively, you can order your wreath-making kit online. Check out this spring wreath-making kit from Florence and Flowers, using seasonal dried flowers.
We've got a fantastic selection of Travelzoo dining deals to treat your mum to this Mother's Day. From Michelin-starred restaurants to celeb-chef dining experiences, and vineyard tours for those balmy days, take your pick for the perfect deal to suit any occasion. If your mum has a sweet tooth, forget the usual box of chocolates, and take her along to a chocolate-making workshop instead. We've negotiated discounted deals at three locations nationwide, where you can whip up your own handmade chocolates to take home with you at the end of the class.
Whether you're buying for your mum, aunt, sister, wife, or partner this Mother's Day, we've got a range of unique experience gifts to surprise her with. Many of our deals are fully flexible and refundable, with validity into the latter part of this year and beyond.
