Treat mum like a star on Mother’s Day

Celebrate the most special woman in the world with a fun-filled Mother’s Day experience – and the perfect gift to match!

This year, new famous mums include Celebrity Secrets cover star and Strictly pro Ola Jordan, who recently welcomed a baby girl.

Former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh will be bursting with joy at the arrival of her and fiancé Ryan Thomas’ little one.

We are sure new mums like former Strictly star Gemma Atkinson and TOWIE’s Lydia Bright will also have something special planned for their first Mother’s Day with their children.

Give your mum the A-list treatment too with our top activities and gifts including afternoon teas, pampering treats, gin tours and more.

And make her day as special as she is!

Afternoon Tea

Could there be anything better than Mother’s Day afternoon tea? Of course not!

Enjoy a good catch up with mum over beautifully presented finger sandwiches, cakes and scones.

Ex on the Beach’s Melissa Reeves hosted her blissful baby shower this week – complete with a gorgeous afternoon tea.

If you want to get your clotted cream fix too, choose from a more traditional tea, the royal treatment – or even on a cruise down the Thames – will it be a classic brew or fizz for you?

London Borough Market and Gin Distillery tour

Is your mum a little bit obsessed by gin? It’s called mother’s ruin for a reason you know…

As well as drinking the juniper-based drink, why not distil your knowledge in the tipple while the craft gin craze is in full flow?

Get to grips at the famous Beefeater’s Gin Distillery. Here you can learn the history of London’s favourite tipple on a guided tour – and test it out of course.

A shopping trip in London is an exceptional experience too – and who could deserve it more than mum? Pop along to the capital’s Borough Market – or why not take a quick trip from London to Bicester Village for designer bargains?

See a show

For the mums that love singing and dancing, get along to an incredible theatrical experience to make her smile.

London is bursting with an amazing selection of shows from all the big hits at the Tina Turner Musical to singing along to feel-good ABBA classics at Mamma Mia.

Celebrities were out on force for the opening of Pretty Woman: The Musical Show, including glamorous mamma Kimberly Walsh from Girls Aloud.

It’s guaranteed to get mum in the mood to celebrate her special day.

Lunch with a difference

Mother’s Day lunch is the best excuse to get the entire family together for a meal they can enjoy together.

While going out for food is the usual favourite way to say thanks to mum, it doesn’t have to be a standard Sunday lunch.

Get her glammed up like mum-of-two, former Corrie star Helen Flanagan. You can dine with a twist aboard the Bustronome Luxury Bus, where you can take in the sights while you eat.

You’ll be sure she’ll have an Edam good time on a Cheese Crawl – or why not go for something quirky like a Medieval Banquet?

Indulge in the sweet flavours from London’s best chocolates, cakes, and pastries on this fun English tea and dessert tour.

Stop off at the capital’s tastiest sweet stops, including The Queen’s grocer that serves Buckingham Palace! Well if it’s good enough for Her Majesty…
