Treats for Mum this Mother's Day


Posted on February 29th, 2016 by Gina Smith

Here are some fabulous, thoughtful gifts and ideas for Mum (perfect at any time of the year!) 

Your mum is usually one of the most important people in your life and she even has her very own special day, so you can let her know how much you appreciate everything she does.  But mums can also be notoriously difficult to buy for on Mother’s Day and you want to make sure you get them something thoughtful to show how much you care! Should you wish to show your appreciation with a gift, we’ve got some great gift ideas that will give you some inspiration and get the ball rolling.

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea has exploded in popularity over the last couple of years and it could be the perfect gift for your mum. Buying an experience for the both of you gives your gift that extra special touch, as sometimes all your mum wants is to spend some more quality time with you. There are lots of different hotels, restaurants and tearooms that offer afternoon tea and all you have to do is choose the perfect location. Afternoon tea usually includes scones, cakes, sandwiches and of course, tea – but you can always upgrade to something a bit more sparkly and opt to treat your mum to champagne too.

Spa Weekend

Mums never have a quiet moment and they’re constantly rushing around all week trying to keep everything together. Everyone needs a break though and a Spa Weekend could be a great way to give your mum some much needed rest and relaxation. She can truly indulge herself and get pampered through a series of treatments and packages.

Flowers Every Month

Why not let your gift to your mum continue throughout the year. You can order Flowers Every Month, so that you’ll put a smile on your mum’s face over the course of the year. The flowers she receives will change according to the seasons and she’ll amass a wide range of different types of flowers. It’s a lovely gesture that means your gift stretches a long way.

Hotel Break

Whisk your mum away on a hotel break and take her somewhere new. You’ll be able to spend some time together and also give her a break from the daily grind. Let her put her feet up and treat her to some meals out and trips to local attractions. There is a wealth of possible locations up and down the country, so it’s up to you to decide whether she’d enjoy a city break more than a countryside weekend away.

Makeover and Photoshoot

Your mum might not get many chances to dress up and feel glamorous, so a makeover might be just the ticket. Not only will she get a makeover from a stylist, but she’ll be able to have her very own photoshoot too so she can get some snaps to remember. If you fancy getting in on the fun too then you can get involved in the photoshoot, but you might want to leave your mum to hog the limelight on her special day! This type of gift helps make some great memories for you and your mum to share.


If you want to take your mum to see a show then you’ll be able to choose from a wide range of award-winning musicals and performances available in the UK. There’s something for everyone; shows to sing along to, shows that’ll have your mum belly laughing or even tear jerking performances that’ll have her reaching for the tissues. Tickets can be bought for very reasonable prices and if you book in advance then there are many discounts and deals available.

From all of us at TheGivingMachine, we hope that you have a lovely day however you decide to spend it.
