Do something a little different with Mum this Mother’s Day
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, planning something special is a hot topic! At Trendz we think we’ve come up with a few great ideas of things you can do with Mum this Mother’s Day, including not only the classics like an Afternoon Tea or Spa Day, but also a couple that may not have been on your list. So why not mix things up a little this March 26th and make it extra special for you and Mum?
- Afternoon Tea
Always a classic, we don’t think you can ever go wrong with a Traditional Afternoon Tea or Cream Tea experience! There are so many options, whether it’s luxurious, sophisticated, quirky, or cosy that you’re after, there’s an Afternoon Tea experience to suit every Mum!
If you’re in and around Dorset why not head to Bournemouth to Frieda’s Tearoom, a cute and cosy little tea house in the centre of town? With prices from £14 per person for a Full Afternoon Tea and Cream Tea from £5.95, you won’t break the bank whilst enjoying a traditionally cosy afternoon of scrumptious scones and tea.
For something truly unique, how about Afternoon Tea on wheels? Frieda’s Afternoon Tea Bus, a delightful vintage double-decker bus, picks you up from Bournemouth Pier, stopping at nearby beaches whilst you enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea and see some sights as you sip, and all from £30 per person. http://www.friedastearoom.co.uk/
- Enjoy a tasting of wine, chocolate, or even learn to make cocktails!
Try something different and have some fun with Mum this Mother’s day. Skip the traditional lunch and head straight for dessert or cocktails – let’s be honest, our favourite bits! There are lots of ‘Tasting’ experiences out there, or ‘Make your own’ classes, so whatever you both enjoy doing, whether it’s eating, making, or eating and making, find something you’ll both enjoy.
For those close to London or anyone planning a trip, Hotel Chocolat offer indulgent chocolate tasting experiences and chocolate making sessions from just £50 with Redletterdays.co.uk! Now that’s a luxurious, fun Mother’s day treat if there ever was one!

- National trust properties
If you’ve given up chocolate for Lent, why not try culture? With so many National Trust properties all around the UK, why not take Mum on a day trip and view a property near you? Many boast beautiful gardens to explore, grand rooms and original decor, and stunning artwork and exquisite antiques to enjoy, and with a unique historical story to tell. When you’re finished wandering, stop by the café, and round off your experience with a spot of lunch or a classic cream tea, and pretend to be the ladies of the manor.
- Spa day
Any excuse for a spa day! Another classic Mother’s Day experience which has to be mentioned is the ‘Spa Day’. Loved by many Mums all around the world, what could be better than a day spent relaxing, warming the body in steam rooms and saunas, and enjoying indulgent pampering?
Groupon always has deals for afternoon spa experiences, full spa days, and treatments, so whatever you think Mum will love, go for it! It’s a no brainer when it comes to a little TLC, and Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse, if you actually need one!
- Get outside and close with nature
If you know Mum is going to prefer to get outside and grab lunch somewhere this Mother’s Day then why not take a drive to a beautiful spot near you and opt for a walk or a cycle and a delicious lunch? Whether you live near the New Forest National Park, Peak District, Dartmoor or the Sussex Downs, you’ll be sure to find walking paths and a delicious lunch or cream tea on the way that will fuel you for the rest of your day of exploration. Enjoy the fresh air, quality time together, and as tradition dictates on Mother’s Day, some tasty food!
