Mother's Day Gifts & Present Ideas For 2021

Top Picks

Next Sunday 14th March is Mother’s Day — a time dedicated to showing our loved ones how much they mean to us. Even if you’re unable to celebrate together due to lockdown restrictions, we’ve put together a few ideas to show whomever you’re celebrating this Mother’s Day just how special she is to you. From flowers and chocolates, to afternoon tea hampers and future spa treatments, every mother out there deserves to be spoilt this year, especially after the year we’ve had!

Breakfast In Bed

Let’s be honest, there’s nothing better than waking up to breakfast in bed. Celebrate the person who has helped you throughout your life and start the day with a storm by treating them to some tasty breakfast in bed this Sunday 14th. Regardless of what you may or may not have planned this Mother’s Day, make sure your main goal of the day is to make them feel like the magnificent person they are!

Whether it’s freshly baked croissants and coffee from the local bakery or a full English breakfast with a nice cuppa, add some flowers and a glass of prosecco or champagne to add a little some special.

Mother’s Day Hamper with Hurley House Hotel

What better way to celebrate your mother, grandmother or motherly figure than by gifting them the Hurley House Hotel Mother’s Day Hamper? Filled with an exclusive afternoon tea for two, including fine-cut sandwiches, delicious sweet and savoury treats and their iconic freshly-baked scones, this magnificent hotel has truly raised the bar once again when it comes to hospitality levels! This utterly beautiful gift comes inside a stylish, reusable black wicker, cotton-lined Hurley House hamper with a gorgeous potted pink rose plant.

Plan a picnic

Considering the current state of world affairs at the moment, what better way to stay safe and enjoy some delicious food and drink than by indulging in a picnic? They’re timeless and traditional yet modern, and at this present moment, one of the safest ways to enjoy company and good grub in the great outdoors. As the temperature is getting warmer and the days are getting longer, an exclusive picnic is a great idea for this Mother’s Day! If all goes to plan, you’ll be allowed to enjoy a tantalising picnic outside with one other person from March 8th — just in time for this special day.

If you want to make sure this picnic is as fun and safe as possible, make sure you each individually bring your own food and drinks. Gather some tasty home-made sandwiches, delicious sweet treats and maybe even some banana bread you’ve mastered baking throughout lockdown. Whatever you bring, make sure you show your loved one how much you appreciate them and lift the family’s mood (if in the same bubble) with a well-awaited picnic in the sun!

Please note: Please remember to stick to the government guidelines. From the 29th March the “rule of six” will return, along with a new two-household rule, at the end of next month, allowing either six people from a maximum of six separate households to meet in outdoor settings such as parks and private gardens, or a maximum of two households, regardless of the number of people.
