Mother's Day

From family days out to great gifts, use our guide to get some ideas and save on Mother's Day treats as a Boundless member

With Mothering Sunday on the horizon (it’s 22 March – don’t forget), make sure you find a present she will love, or plan a day out that you can enjoy together

Afternoon tea at a country house hotel

If sitting in the pleasant surroundings of a 17th-century country house sounds like your mum’s cup of tea, get the scones as well and treat her to the full afternoon tea experience at Ghyll Manor.

Nestled in the rolling hills of the West Sussex countryside, it’s a picturesque spot to enjoy decadent sandwiches and a range of teas, cakes and pastries.

A Mother’s Day trip to the cinema

Check out the latest releases and take your mum to see a film for Mother’s Day. Big films released in time for Mother’s Day include Radioactive, the story of Marie Curie, Onward, the new Pixar animation, and Quiet Place 2, the sequel to the Emily Blunt monster story. And as a Boundless member you can make great savings at Cineworld, Odeon, Vue, Picture House and more, with tickets for adults starting at just £4.70.

If your mum is a culture vulture, keep an eye out for any ‘event cinema’ screenings of opera, ballet or theatre at your local cinema – it’s like going to the theatre, but cheaper, and you can get a great view of the stage no matter where your seats are.

Mother’s Day presents for outdoorsy types

If your mum loves nothing more than getting outside for a good walk, the right present might be a new jacket for those unexpected spring showers, or some new boot socks for keeping comfortable on hikes. Why not make a day of it and plan a family walk together as well?

Boundless members can save 15% at Cotswold Outdoor, in stores and online.

The best Mother’s Day experiences

Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to treat your mum to something she’ll love and let her know how much she is appreciated. Virgin Experience Days make this easier by putting together a range of activities, such as a visit to Kew Gardens with a cream tea, theatre and dinner packages and spa days. Or, if you fancy giving her something a bit different this year, how about a sushi-making workshop?

Check out all the Virgin Experience Days on offer and save 20% on the usual price if you’re a Boundless member.

Treat your mum to a year of historical days out with English Heritage

English Heritage membership gives you unlimited access to castles, gardens, historic houses and abbeys around England – and kids go free. From ancient mystical sites like Stonehenge to places of huge historical significance like Battle Abbey, marking the site where the Battle of Hastings took place in 1066, there is a wealth of places to discover.

Boundless members can save on English Heritage membership and it makes a great present: a year’s worth of outings and memories. 

Buy your mum the perfect gift for Mother’s Day 

Maybe you’re really good at knowing what your mum will like and can spot the perfect present when you see it? That shouldn't be too difficult at the wide range of high street shops where you can use discount shopping cards – you might as well save money at the same time. (Your mum would approve.)

Boundless members can get a range of discounts on shopping vouchers and cards at more than 60 high street retailers. Many cards are reloadable so you can top them up and keep saving.
