Mother’s Day is fast approaching! I have to say that I absolutely love celebrating this event and I know my mum does as well. Her birthday is always around the same time as Mother’s Day so she is fortunate enough to have two celebrations within a short space of time each year.
If you’re like me, sometimes it can get quite difficult having to think of unique gift and celebrations ideas each year. What should I buy for my mum? Where should I take her? What should we do? It can be a bore, but on the other hand, if your mum is like me then she’s probably slightly stuck in her ways and loves a routine of traditional get togethers and gifts. Well, without further ado take a look below of my possible suggestions for a beautiful Mother’s Day celebration.
Afternoon Tea For Two At The Luxurious Waldorf Hilton
Whisk your mum away for an afternoon tea for two at this luxurious hotel and make her feel like she’s dining with royalty – after all, isn’t she royalty anyway?
The price is only £49. There are other hotels and venues where you can take your lovely mum to.
Chocolate Dreams Afternoon Tea with Hotel Chocolat
This definitely sounds like a dream. Ever heard of the chocolate brand, Hotel Chocolat? Well it is just dreamy to say the least. The price for this afternoon tea is £40 per person with unlimited chocolate. This is located at The Den in St. Martins Lane.
Afternoon Tea at the Mews, Mayfair
Mayfair is such a lush and beautiful area that I just couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this being marketed for £24.37 per person. That’s incredible! You will definitely feel at home with the decor and cosy sofas.
There’s a whole range of options for Afternoon Teas via this website so check them all out and have a blast.
Feast your eyes on an affordable yet luxurious restaurant that sells Singapore dishes which is similar to chinese food. It’s a cosy restaurant with food that looks divine.
Just visit this website – I dare you. I love the layout and colours of the site – it looks so arty. Well, that’s not why you would visit the restaurant so let me get right to it. It’s a lovely looking and spacious restaurant which sells a variety of dishes from brown rice, to salmon, to french toast with salad and fillings. The price is very affordable, In fact, it’s so affordable I could purchase food from there for my lunch at work.
If you love Korean food, or want to give it a try then perhaps you should take your mum to Jin Jui. They sell a wide range of food and I’m sure it will be well within your budget.
If you have the budget and consider yourself as an adventurer who would literally just get up one day and go to a destination just because you can then a cruise may be the way to go.
There’s various cruises that if you ask me are quite affordable if you take into consideration the places it takes you and the short space of time between booking the cruise and going on the cruise.
Royal Caribbean have cruises that pick you up from the UK and whisk you away to parts of Europe such as Spain, France and Portugal.
Cruise Deals offers you cruises that erm, well have deals so you can do a roundtrip in the UK i.e. through Southampton or go to Europe and ‘live the life’ without spending all your dough.
A European Daybreak
Have you thought about taking your beloved mum sightseeing for the day? If you have that’s very sweet of you and don’t worry there’s still time to make plans. I love lastminute.com because it really is all about making last minute plans at reasonable prices so check it out and let me know where you end up going.
OK so buying flowers for your mum is a classic Mother’s Day gift, but have you thought about ordering flowers that come with a fruitcake that delivers it straight to her home? An online website called Bunches does just this so check it out and let me know what you think. They also deliver for free, so what more could you ask.
Appleyard flowers deliver flowers straight to your door and can I just say that the flowers on the website look heavenly.
If you ask me, nothing says I appreciate you more than a beautiful piece of jewellery. By jewellery, I mean real jewellery. Here are my top five places to buy jewellery.
My go to place right now for personalised gifts (although I don’t go very often) is Not On The High Street. It lives up to it’s name as I don’t ever really find these unique products on the high street.
If your mum is anything like mine then she will be a really good baker. Spend time with your mum baking delicious treats for the day so that you can scoff your mouth.

Right now Spa Break seems like the go to place to book a lovely spa break. It has so many different locations that you don’t need to scroll Google to find a nice place to go to.
