Well, this year we are helping you change that with our 5 VIP Mother’s Day activities that will make her feel like the queen she is. Scroll down and get booking!
1.Gin Tasting & Tour at Lakes Distillery
Of course, we are going to start with something a little boozy. The Lakes Distillery is one of the UK’s biggest and expert distilleries nestled in Cumbria, The Lake District. Set in the picturesque national park, the team at Lakes Distillery expertly produce gin, whisky and vodka and this tour will take you through their state-of-the-art facility.
Accompanied by an expert tour guide, explore the Still Room, learn about the impact of oak and cask seasoning on flavour creation, and discover how they make The Lakes whisky, gin, and vodka.
Included in the tour is a tasting of all the spirits they produce including The Lakes gin! If that isn’t enough excitement for one day, they have an incredible bistro where you can also book lunch before taking a walk along the River Derwent and even spend some time with their alpacas.
2. Hand Tied Bouquet Workshop at Petersham Nurseries
The floristry style at Petersham Nurseries is renowned for its dramatic, wild and impressive arrangements; a combination of asymmetrical foliage and vibrant colour. Located in Covent Garden, the nursery itself is a sight to be seen and one full of colour and beautiful scents.
In their masterclass, the trained florists will show you the secret of making a wild and foraged scented bouquet in a fun and relaxed workshop. After selecting the most exquisite seasonal flowers you will be shown how to condition the stem and spiral your bunch keeping natural movement showing off their irresistible charm. You will also learn how to gift wrap your bouquet to take home with you.
Learn a new skill with your mum and you’ll be making bouquets for the rest of your lives!
3. Take a Spa Day at Bathsheba
Recently awarded Day Spa of the Year at the London Hair & Beauty Awards, Bathsheba is a modern boutique spa offering a whole host of treatments with Ren products.

Whether its a hot stone massage or a Hopi candle that gets your mum to her happy place, you will not be disappointed with a spa day!
