Mother’s Day is a special time of year. It’s when we go out of our way to let Mum know how much she is valued. Flowers and a card saying ‘Mum you’re so special’ is a great start. But we at Best UK Hotels want to give you some ideas on how to tell her just how important she really is.
Saying thank you to Mum
The traditional afternoon tea has enjoyed a revival in recent years. It is without question one of the most refined ways to celebrate Mother’s Day. From crystal glasses of bubbly, to fine china tea cups, afternoon tea is the best way to have a little pampered heart-to-heart. With afternoon tea a prominent pastime in Edinburgh, there is a selection of locations almost as wide as the sandwich flavours. All waiting for you, your mother, and the gossip.
Mother’s Day in Spring
For those who want to make something special for their Mum head along to the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh. Take in the new spring views and stroll around all the beauty and wonder this natural exhibit has to offer. On Mother’s Day, they offer the most quirky and fun alternatives to a Mother’s Day bouquet, all freshly picked and created, there in the gardens. With a restaurant too, it is easy to see how this walk can quickly turn into a full day out.
Pampering Mother’s Day
Of course, nothing says “I love you Mum” like a hotel getaway. Parliament House Hotel in Edinburgh regularly offers the perfect Mother’s Day retreat that is sure to have you in the good books for the rest of the year. Make the most of beautiful Edinburgh this Mother’s Day or any day with a gift voucher. Spoil her with dinner on the first night, as well as with a gift voucher for afternoon tea and bubbles at Frederick Street based tea room, Eteaket.
Whatever you decide to do for Mother’s Day this year, we hope you have a great time!
