Choose from 405 different venues to take your mum to afternoon tea - this is a great idea if, for whatever reason, Mum can't actually make the day itself, plus it gives you something to look forward to. And, if you go on a different date, it'll probably be quieter too! 

Served in front of a roaring log fire or, on sunny days, on the terrace overlooking the Italian gardens, afternoon tea at this grand Stratford hotel is a slice of Downton life, with finger sandwiches, scones, petit fours, macaroons and Prosecco.

 What better way to experience opulence than from the 39th floor of an iconic landmark? Treat your mum to fine dining at its best with a three course dinner and fancy cocktails at one of London’s most iconic eateries. As well as an impressive menu with delicious options, there's the most stunning view of the capital. 

Red Letter Days have loads of exciting days out ideas to treat mums this Mother's Day. From spa treatments to cookery lessons to afternoon tea, check out the full list of luxurious gift ideas (that will give you more brownie points than the standard flower bouquet!) here.

Learn how to bake with the guide of a celebrity baker! If you have been a fan of the Great British Bake off (and let's be honest, who doesn't love the drama), you can now experience hands on baking with your favourite contestants. With two locations on offer, Central London and Liverpool, these 3-hour baking classes are the perfect gift this Mother's Day.

£99 per person or £190 for a pair. Includes a glass of prosecco, all the ingredients and equipment plus a post-bake sit down with your baking celebrity.

One of the must-visit spots in Cornwall, Heligan makes a memorable day out. Admire spring flowers and take a trip to the jungle and see the many exotic plants before claiming your reward of a traditional Cornish cream tea or Sunday roast made with local produce.

Arriving from 12pm, spend the afternoon relaxing in the spa with unlimited facility use, plus a 45-minute treatment and full afternoon tea served in the restaurant - it’s the perfect way to say #thanksmum for all her love and care over the years.
