To say a little thank you to the mothers in our lives, we’ve cherry-picked our favourite luxury gifts ahead of this Mother’s Day. From a smash hit theatre production to indulgent beauty products, we’ve every interest covered.
A Fairtrade favourite of ours, Pump Street Chocolate has a delicious range of melt-in-the-mouth chocolate bars. As it’s a challenge having to pick from such a wonderful selection, treat mum to the four bestselling flavours: Ecuador Dark Milk 60%, Ecuador 85%, Madagascar 72% and Sourdough & Sea Salt, all conveniently wrapped together in a special little gift box. Because chocolate is always a winner.
Shaken or stirred? However mum likes her cocktail, treat her to an expert masterclass this Mother’s Day where our talented in-house mixologist will reveal the fascinating history behind the popular aperitif, before guiding guests through the process of shaking up their own.
If your mum prefers sweet treats over cocktails, look no further than our ever-popular, quintessential afternoon tea. Our pastry team have given the menu a refresh especially for Mother’s Day. Just be sure to book in advance!
Described as a sophisticated aromatherapy diffuser that transforms the space around into a haven of calm and tranquillity, this could be just what mum needs. With key ingredients including lavender, frankincense and orange, it’s guaranteed to soothe the soul…
If your mum enjoys getting dolled up to the nines but is equally conscious about ethics and sustainability then she’ll love the luxury cosmetics brand delilah. With all products cruelty-free, vegan and sustainable, what’s not to like? Plus, you know you’re onto something great when you spot their counter in the beauty hall of the iconic Fortnum & Mason!
If mum needs a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, a countryside escape might be just the ticket! Our sister hotel, The Grove, lies just 18 miles from London and is set in 300 acres of luscious green countryside. Together, you could spend some quality time unwinding in Sequoia spa, taking a leisurely stroll around the leafy woodland or taking a swing on the championship golf course.
Perhaps it’s been a while since you’ve had a day out in the city. Now London has fully re-opened, why not remind yourself why London is one of the best cities in the world with a visit to some top attractions together?
If mum fancies herself as a bit of an art enthusiast, then treat her to a day out at The National Gallery. From April, a fascinating exhibition will open, taking an in-depth look at the complete career of renowned painter, Raphael, exploring his celebrated paintings, work in architecture and poetry, and design for sculpture, tapestry and print. With loans from institutions such as the Vatican Museum and the Louvre, this is an exhibition that mum won’t want to miss!
For decades, people have flocked to the Les Misérables London production to see Victor Hugo’s classic story about the life of Jean Valjean. With an outstanding cast and iconic songs that we all know and love, such as I Dreamed A Dream and One Day More, this will be one Mother’s Day treat that mum will sing about for months to come!
For the ultimate Mother’s Day treat, stay overnight at The Athenaeum.
