How to Spoil Your Mum This Mother’s Day


Published By royalscotsclub on 09/03/2018

Mother’s Day – or Mothering Sunday – will be celebrated on Sunday the 11th of March in the UK this year. It was the American social activist Anna Jarvis (1864-1948) from Philadelphia who lobbied the government for an official day to honour mothers in the United States. The day took off in Britain when vicar’s daughter Constance Smith was inspired by a 1913 newspaper report of Jarvis’ campaign and began a push for the day to be officially marked in England. Today the day celebrates mothers and the maternal bond; children traditionally give cards, flowers and presents to their mothers, and other maternal figures such as grandmothers, stepmothers and mothers-in-law. If you are in need of inspiration for ways of spoiling your mum this March, we have some creative ideas for you to consider.

Breakfast in Bed

Treat your mum to an extra special breakfast this Mother’s Day; choose from pancakes, eggs or French toast, and pair it with something delicious to drink. Make it extra special with flowers in a vase on her tray, and leave her favourite magazines or newspapers to flick through as she tucks in to her tasty breakfast.


Subscription services are the gift that keeps on giving! Select a weekly or monthly delivery of something she will love, whether that is bouquets of flowers, her favourite magazine, a wine of the month club or a fresh food box. She will thank you and think of you every time her surprise is delivered.

Pamper Her

Take your mum to a lovely spa, or create your own at home with facemasks, manicures, pedicures and a bottle of bubbly. If you would like to get her a gift to match, consider a pretty eye mask, bathrobe or nail polish in her favourite colour.

Family Photos

Remind your mum of special family memories with photographs of her and the family. There are lots of options for this; create your own photo book or scrap book, print one of her favourite photos on a canvas, or arrange a family photoshoot to create some new memories.


Spoil your mum by taking her for a lunch filled lots of delicious treats at the Royal Scots Club. With the likes of Roast topside of Scottish beef, Paupiettes of sole or Roast gigot of Border lamb to choose from, treat that all important lady in your life with a delicious three course lunch in our newly decorated Hepburn Suite. Book a table of 4 and mum eats free! Click here for more information.


There are lots of thoughtful and creative ways to spoil your mum this Mother’s Day; whether you treat her like a queen with a luxurious afternoon tea, cook her a delicious breakfast in bed or make a special photo album full of family memories. Pop the date (11th of March this year) in your diary so you don’t miss it and remember to remind your siblings. Although Mother’s Day is a celebration of everything your mum has done for you, be sure to spoil her on the other 364 days of the year too!
