Top Last Minute Mother’s Day Ideas

With Mother’s Day this Sunday you don’t have much time left to get them a present. But why get them a generic, last minute gift? Why not take them away somewhere special?

Here are 5 places that we think are worth going to. They will be sure to bring a smile to your dear mother’s face.

The Botanical Gardens – Birmingham

Perhaps it’s time your mother spent some time with the grand master of all mothers – mother nature.

The Birmingham Botanical Gardens is a picturesque site with rows of lush green grass, tropical flowers you wouldn’t otherwise find in the UK, and Victorian styled glass houses.

Book yourselves in for their Mother’s Day afternoon tea, or just simply go there for a nice little wander – you might even want to bring a picnic with you.


Lido Spa & Restaurant – Bristol

Go for a dip with mum and even bring the rest of the family along, then have a fabulous lunch in Lido’s award-winning poolside restaurant and tapas bar. If you want to do a little bit more than just swim or eat, why not book yourselves in for a mini spa day, really pamper mum this Mother’s Day.


Peak Pursuits – The Peak District

If your mum is more of the adventurous type, you could always plan something a bit more active. It could even get both your competitive streaks going.

With Peak Pursuits, you can do a range of activities, such as abseiling or archery. These activities are not only fun but are held on the gorgeous hills of Derbyshire’s Peak District.

Once you’ve had your fun and the competitiveness has worn off, you and mummy dearest can come together for a nice loving hug.


Backyard Theatre – Newington

Ever wondered what it’s like to be in one of those drive-in theatres you see in old American movies? Well, this is quite close.

The Backyard Theatre is an alternative cinema experience that beats going to your typical cinema. The backyard theatre is an experience that tries to give its visitors a real sense of atmosphere through themed design, whilst showing some of cinema’s greatest films. This Mother’s Day, you can go and watch the classic film – “The Shawshank Redemption”. Why not make it even more special and order a bottle of bubbly?


Cruise on the Tyne – Newcastle

Get a feel for the city, the lively city of Newcastle, in style (with a glass of buck’s fizz in hand). River Escapes are giving people the chance to see more of this well-known British city, which may go overlooked in some other cultural phenomenon’s– (Geordie Shore).

Take a cruise down the River Tyne and get some stunning camera shots whilst you enjoy a spot of afternoon tea and take in the fresh spring air.

Whether you do something small or something special for you mother this Mother’s Day, temporary car insurance from Insuredaily can help you get there – wherever you need to go.
