Mother's Day for those in the UK is coming up, it's the 31st March if you didn't know and I've been thinking about what I'm going to treat my mum to already as we all know that I like to be overly organised. My mum can be incredibly frustrating at times as well as embarrassing, as all mums probably are but she does so much for everyone so I really want to treat her, especially this year.

I will have a couple of specific Mother's Day gift guides which will be live on my blog within the next two or so weeks but today's post is more about the experiences you can buy this year, rather than material gifts. Don't get me wrong, material gifts are amazing but sometimes it's nice to have a special experience instead.

Hotel Stay 
I've already bought a few gifts but instead I'm thinking about paying for a night away in Edinburgh for myself and my mum as we did want to go this month but the train tickets I was very kindly gifted weren't available for Edinburgh (they were only valid for London) so it would be nice to go in the easter holidays as a belated Mother's Day gift.

However, depending on your budget, where you live and the modes of transport available to you, some places might be more suitable than others. A fantastic four star hotel option is the Bedford Lodge Hotel which is based in the beautiful surroundings of the Suffolk and is within close proximity of Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge. Cambridge is also on my list of places to visit in the UK this year!

The hotel is situated within three acres of private gardens, it offers a range of special offers and functions as well as a specific Mother's Day menu which is actually priced very reasonably! For more information about the hotel and what it has to offer, check out their website, linked above.
Spa Day 
If you wanted a lovely day but didn't have time for a hotel stay at the Bedford Lodge Hotel, they also have a spa! A spa day is the quintessential Mother's Day or hen party treat but I've never been to a spa before, I think my mum would love it! The spa is situated in the grounds of the hotel so a hotel stay and a spa day at the Bedford Lodge Hotel and Spa would be an ideal Mother's Day gift all in one.

They offer such a wide range of treatments such as traditional massage options, facials and skin treatments to more specific options including maternity treatments, makeup treatments, IPL, reflexology, hair removal and more so you could easily have a whole day of pampering or just one indulgent treatment. Additionally, you can purchase gift vouchers for the hotel, afternoon tea or the spa, if you cannot go on the spa day yourself.

What do you think of these Mother's Day gift ideas?
