Get Ready for Mother’s Day

Are you looking to spoil your mum this year? It’s less than a month until Mothering Sunday on 14th March, but there’s still plenty time to organise a lovely treat for your mum and we’ve got some ideas to help you out, including gift boxes, vouchers for post-lockdown activitiesflowers, Sunday lunch meal boxes and pampering essentials.

While we’ve still got a way to go with the government’s roadmap out of lockdown, you can still spread some joy at a distance and look forward to being able to spend some quality time together soon.

Activity Gift Vouchers

If you’ve not been able to spend much time with your mum due to COVID, why not give a gift that gives you and your mum something to look forward to. Purchasing a gift voucher for an activity to do together when restrictions are lifted not only is a great gift but gives you the flexibility to choose what you want without worrying about changes in restrictions cancelling your plans. Our suggestions would be:

Gin Tasting for Two at The Green Dragon Hotel – purchase vouchers here

Afternoon Tea at Castle House Hotel – purchase vouchers here


Say it with flowers

Spring has (almost) sprung and lovely springtime blooms will make a great Mother’s Day gift. Pictured flowers are a beautiful posy from Beehive Florist. Shop Mother's Day flowers here:
