Best Mother’s Day gifts

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and finding the perfect gift for mum can prove difficult. From flowers to jewellery to chocolate, there’s a never-ending selection of possible gifts out there, which can make selecting one a challenge. That’s why we’ve put together a shortlist of five gifts that are guaranteed to please your mum. So forget about foraging the high street for a gift and choose from our list instead. Read on for the solution to all your Mother’s Day gifting problems.

Flower subscription

Thinking of getting your mum flowers for Mother’s Day? Great idea! Flowers are a classic Mother’s Day gift for a reason. Everyone loves fresh flowers and coming into spring, more and more beautiful blooms are in season. Why not upgrade your bouquet and get your mum the gift that keeps on giving – literally. A flower subscription is a great way to show your mum some love year round and will guarantee to put a smile on her face not just on Mother’s Day. Companies that offer flower subscriptions include Bloom & Wild, Freddie’s Flowers, Bunches and Flying Flowers.

Spa voucher

What better way to treat the leading ladies in your life than by gifting them an indulgent spa day. Gift them a treatment you know they’ll love – you can never go wrong with a massage – or give them a monetary voucher and let them choose a treatment themselves. At Yu Spa, Dundee we offer a wide variety of treatments so your mum can unwind in style. We guarantee she’ll love it and will truly appreciate the time to herself.

Trip to the theatre

As the saying goes, experiences last a lifetime. So treat your mum to an experience she won’t forget and get her a trip to the theatre for Mother’s Day. The UK is home to some great shows this year including Matilda The Musical, Wicked and Aladdin. If your mum’s into musicals, make a day of it and take her out for dinner too. Our Matilda The Musical Theatre Package gives you a two-course dinner, tickets to Matilda, an overnight stay in one of our Edinburgh hotels and a full Scottish breakfast the next day. If this sounds like something your mum would love, you can book here now.


Share a fun learning experience with your mum and take part in a masterclass with her. From flower arranging to mixology to sushi making, there’s a masterclass for everything nowadays and you can experience a fun day out plus learn a new skill in the process. What more could you ask for? Check out designmynight for more masterclasses in your area.

City break

Go all out this Mother’s Day and treat your mum to a city break in one of the UK’s favourite cities. If your mum’s a fan of shopping, take her to London or Glasgow; if she’s a culture vulture, take her on a trip to Edinburgh or Dundee; or if you fancy a relaxing break for just the two of you, Bath is the perfect place to unwind. Whatever city you choose, we’re sure she’ll absolutely love you for planning the trip. And if your mum likes to be involved in the planning process, get her a voucher and set the time and place at a later date. Monetary vouchers available here.
