From family days out to great gifts, use our guide to get some ideas and save on Mother's Day treats if you're a Boundless member
With Mothering Sunday on the horizon (it’s 11 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 Mother's Day 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 trip to the pictures
Check out the latest releases and take your mum to see a film for Mother’s Day. Is she a bit of a culture vulture? You could see if there are any ‘event cinema’ screenings of opera, ballet or theatre at your local multiplex – 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.
Boundless members can save 40% on cinema tickets, for a film of your choice at a range of cinemas.
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.
A grand day out
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 on the price if you’re a Boundless member.
A year of historical days out
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 her the perfect gift
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.
