Here are some ideas of what to do for Mother's Day - whether you are looking for the perfect gift or something to do on the day itself.
Sugarplum Boutique & Home have a range of cards and gifts, whatever your budget. Personally I'm hoping I get The Best Mum in Fleet mug!
But if your Mum is a practical person and enjoys being outside or walking the dog, you could treat her to some Hunter Wellies or a Barbour coat from Tackle Up Fleet - anyone who has ever owned them know what great quality they are and they last for years!
It's too late now to order some hand made jewellery from Equinox but you can always buy a gift voucher.
Matilda Orchard Photography also take stunning family photos so booking a photoshoot would be the perfect way to capture a special moment.
The Harlington also have great tribute acts with Michael Jackson (Navi) appearing in March.
Fleet is a great place for eating out with so many independent restaurants as well as national chains - we're almost spoilt for choice.
If you want a country pub, The Barley Mow is fully booked on Sunday, but you can always enjoy a walk by the Basingstoke Canal if the weather's good. And if you want to pop in for a drink dogs are welcome in the bar area.
Fleet's favourite restaurant El Castello is also a great place with authentic home-cooked food. But again booking is advised
Being out and about
Fleet is a great place for walks with Fleet Pond, The Basingstoke Canal and Elvetham Heath nature reserve right on our doorsteps. And if Dad want to take the children out so Mum can have some peace and quiet at home there are plenty of parks in the area.
We hope this has given you some inspiration for Mothers' Day.
