Last Minute Mother's Day Ideas
March 24 2017
We know it’s not just us… Mother’s Day always creeps upon us, and nearly every year there’s a mad rush to get a card and a gift. So today, we thought we’d give you some last minute Mother’s Day gift ideas (which is this Sunday!) that she’ll never suspect was rushed.
The good ol’ photo frame
There is no way you can go wrong with a framed photo. Whether you scavenge through your attic for one of you and your mother on a beach in Cornwall when you were 3 months old, or whether you spend a few hours trawling through your phone’s photo library, she will love the thoughtful gift. Brownie points if the frame matches her living room.
Fabulously British afternoon tea
Another amazing idea and special treat is afternoon tea. There are some incredible cafes and tearooms in Cardiff that offer Afternoon Tea. Our favourites are Waterloo Tea in Wyndham Arcade, and Pettigrew Tearooms in Bute Park. Just ring up and book yourself and your mum in, or ask for a gift voucher.
A spontaneous trip
Trips don’t have to be planned months in advance any more! Hop onto AirBnB and you can book yourself and your mum a staycation, even for the following weekend! Whatever your budget and wherever you’d like to go, there is always an AirBnB that you can book, whether it’s just for the night or a long weekend. Shopping trip to Bath sound good?
A homemade roast dinner
So you will have to put a bit of effort in with this one, but it’ll be worth it. Why not invite your mum to a homemade roast dinner? Spruce up your house (it’s time for a spring clean anyway), pop to the butchers, get some veggies in and don’t forget the gravy. Or yorkshires. Or roast potatoes. A lovely glass of prosecco and some cake for dessert should go down a treat too!
A pamper day!
Lastly, not to blow our own trumpet or anything, but why not treat your mum to a pamper day at our beauty clinic? We offer gift vouchers, so your mum can come in and have the beauty treatment that she wants. Whether that’s a manicure, a lash tint, or even a round of Fat Freezing or Fibroblast, we can make your mum feel fabulous. Just pop into our clinic on Newport Road to get your voucher – we’re open from 10am to 6pm on Fridays and Saturdays!
