Goodness that's come around quickly again! Mothering Sunday is coming up in a few short weeks so get prepared, plan early and be sure to give your Mum a Mother's Day to remember!
Making a meal of it
If you can't stretch to much of a gift, then spending time with your Mum is something she's sure to be more than happy with. Why not offer to cook her a meal (and that includes doing all the washing up afterwards!!!) There are so many great quick & easy recipes out there, a simple search online of her favourite ingredients is sure to reap rewards.
If home cooking isn't your thing, and you're up for taking Mum out for a treat (and save both of you having to think about the washing up!) there are so many options in the Borough, you really are spoilt for choice. Whether it's an afternoon tea treat at the Lavender House, a gastropub extravaganza at The British Queen, a feast of French fayre at La Rascasse or Italian delights at Ferrari's, Bromley Borough has restaurants aplenty and something for everyone. We love The Coney too, and are delighted it's re-opened, so if you've not been down there since, now's the perfect time!
There's no greater gift than giving...
We also have ideas on the perfect gift - if you have young children of your own and would like to give something as a grandmother's gift too, get a lasting memory from Precious Imprints. It's a wonderful keepsake to treasure in the years ahead.
Life Photography offer a photoshoot in their studio - what a brilliant opportunity to get professional photos taken that you can then give as a gift to your Mum.
Pretty as a picture
Something all Mums love is the opportunity to treat themselves to look gorgeous, especially if they haven't had to pay for it! Options Beauty do gift vouchers towards any treatment in their salon, and with so many different treatments to choose from, we don't think Mum will have any difficulty spending your hard earned cash!
Or perhaps it's a new hair style that your Mum has been planning to book in but hasn't got around to sorting out yet? Mulberry Hair Design offer fantastic hair styling services in Farnborough, Jigsaw Hair do the same in Bromley High Street and if your Mum has a particular interest in organic hair colouring, then A Cut Above in Beckenham is the place for you. One hair technique I know many ladies are itching to try out is the new nanokeratin product now available at Metal Heads... gorgeous shiny, smooth straight hair with lasting results.
We're very lucky to have an excellent theatre on our doorstep, with West End standard shows on all the time. So treat Mum to a night at The Churchill Theatre - there's a cracking season of shows ahead.
Whatever you decide to give your Mum this Mother's Day, make sure it's something that makes her feel like the special lady she is!
