Sunday 27 March 2022 is a time to celebrate motherhood and spoil all the important women in your life. Bookmark this page and get shopping – or hinting! – to make this the best Mother’s Day yet, with a gift you (or she) will treasure.
A classic bouquet with FlowerBe
A classic bouquet will always go down a treat, but for keen gardeners or budding flower enthusiasts, a delivery from FlowerBe offers something a bit different. The company sends a curated selection of stems along with a step-by-step guide for the recipient to arrange them herself, with additional design inspiration and tips tailored to suit your home.
The brand offers a fully flexible service, so you can choose from a regular FlowerBe subscription or buy her a one-off arrangement especially for Mother’s Day.
From £19.50, flowerbe.co.uk
A Makeover with Beautii
Whether you consider yourself a make-up maestro or you barely get time in the mornings to apply a slick of mascara, nothing feels more indulgent than having your face ‘done’ by a professional. Cue Beautii – the capital’s luxury beauty concierge that brings treatments to your door.
With a catalogue of hair and beauty treatments to choose from, not to mention some of the industry’s most reputable and professional artists all willing to offer their tips, advice and samples, mum will be ready for her Mother’s Day close-up in no time.
From £65, beautii.co
Afternoon Tea at The Dorchester
If she’s the traditional type, afternoon tea is a classic choice – and it doesn’t get more classic than one of London’s finest hotels, The Dorchester.
Enjoy a selection of homemade finger sandwiches (we’re looking at you, smoked salmon with sweet mustard and dill) in the quintessential surroundings, along with the works – warm raisin and plain scones served with homemade strawberry jam and Cornish clotted cream, a selection of French pastries and speciality teas. For the ultimate indulgence, add a glass of Laurent-Perrier champagne. Plus, they offer a children’s afternoon tea menu which is complimentary for children aged six and under.
From £70 per person (£35 for children), dorchestercollection.com
A Massage with Secret Spa
OK, so you may not be able to buy her the gift of time, but what you can treat her to is the next best thing – convenience. A spur-of-the-moment spa day or payday pedi may have become a thing of the past, but that’s where the at-home service from Secret Spa.
Created to help you order some of London’s top professional beauty services to your home 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all it takes is a few quick taps of the app. Choose from a whole menu of massage options for mum – deep-tissue, aromatherapy, facials, spray tans or pregnancy massage. Bliss.

Cooking at Home with Burger & Lobster
The best gift you can give any loved one is quality time and cooking together – or giving mum a break while she watches! – is a great bonding activity.
Why not treat mum to one ‘shell’ of a Mother’s Day feast with The Ultimate B&L Box from surf and turf specialists, Burger & Lobster. The luxurious kit for two includes a starter of whole Nova Scotian Lobster with garlic butter sauce, followed by a juicy beef burger, signature Lobster Roll and fries and salted caramel and chocolate ganache, as well as two espresso martinis.
