Book a pampering session

From booking a haircut together or going out for a manicure to heading for a full afternoon of professional massages and treatments, planning a pamper session is a great way for the two of you to spend some much needed down time together. With spas and beauticians around the country offering a multitude of Mother’s Day specials, have a look around your area to find the perfect relaxing treat for the two of you.

Treat her to afternoon tea

Scones, tea, sandwiches and cakes… Who doesn’t love a traditional afternoon tea? This Mother’s Day why not treat your mum to a quintessentially English afternoon out with the family? With a selection of finger foods and sweet treats all just waiting to be washed down with a nice cup of tea (or maybe even a sneaky glass of bubbly!), afternoon tea is the perfect way for the whole family to enjoy Mother’s Day together.


Cook for her

She’s likely cooked for you more times than you can count in your lifetime; this year, turn the tables and treat her to a home cooked meal. With Mother’s Day falling on a Sunday, this is the perfect time to whip up the perfect Sunday roast. Just make sure she gets to sit with her feet up; that means you do all the washing up too!


Take a trip to the theatre

Mother’s Day is the ideal time to soak up some culture and go and see a show together. If there’s a play, musical or ballet she’s always wanted to see, now is the time to do it. With most theatre restaurants offering pre and post theatre dining specials, get dressed up and make a full evening of it – we promise she’ll remember it forever!


Spend quality time together

Of course, the most important thing on Mother’s Day is simply spending time together. Any gesture, however little or large, is guaranteed to bring a smile to her face. Arrange a shopping trip, go grab a coffee, head on a scenic walk together or, if you’re living away, schedule in some time for a lengthy Skype call  – we promise, she’ll be happy to be just spending time with you!


Mother’s Day 2017 falls on Sunday 26th March. For a further range of stunning jewellery, watches and accessories to make a lovely gesture on a variety of occasions, be sure to explore the full Joshua James Jewellery collection.
