How to treat your mum this Mother's Day with Five Valleys

by Five Valleys Centre Management Team

Mums have been celebrated since the 1600s in the UK with Mother's Day traditionally being held on the fourth Sunday of Lent to enable servants to travel home to see their mothers.

The tradition is still widely celebrated today and Five Valleys can provide a few options on how to honour those special mums this Mother's Day on the 10th March.

Serve breakfast in bed - make sure your mums start to the day is extra special by preparing in advance and selecting a box of handmade pastries from The Artisan Baker based in the market. Choose from a flaky buttery croissant, a sugary cinnamon and cardamom bun or an indulgent pain au chocolat. You can pair this with some freshly ground organic coffee beans purchased from Rough Hands and some fresh fruit from Knights for the ultimate Mother's Day breakfast in bed.

Surprise her with a thoughtful personalised gift - If you want to really spoil mum this Mother's Day why not purchase her favourite fragrance from Sandersons department store and for the extra special touch, get the bottle engraved with a personalised message at Cobblers Last.

Spoil mum to an indulgent pampering session - with a nail bar, tanning salon, gym and skin care from Clarins, Voya and more available from Sandersons department store, there's a real range of pampering treats available for you to spoil your mum this Mother's Day. Gift vouchers are also available.

Spend quality time together - Five Valleys is open every day, including Sundays, with a range of options to provide a day and evening of fun. Whether it's shopping, bowling, watching a film at VUE, indulging in decadent treats and a cocktail at Choux Bun Appeitit (found inside Sandersons) or a massive slice of pizza at Fat Toni's there's something for all mums.

Engage in some thoughtful acts of service - perhaps your mum needs some help around the house or would appreciate a meal being prepared. Home Bargains have a range of cleaning products if you fancy tackling the housework or perhaps cooking a Sunday dinner is how you want to spoil your mum this year. Knights offer a wide selection of local artisan meats, a fresh seafood counter and locally sourced fruit and veg offering everything needed to cook up the family Sunday roast. See our recipes section for inspiration and don't forget the wine and cheese from Armadeli.

So we hope this provides some inspiration for what to do with mum this Mother's Day and we hope you enjoy our helpful guide!
