Seriously, you really think that a tired old bunch of flowers are gonna cut it this year? Treat your mum this Mother’s Day to something special! Now you know mums are a soppy lot and the best present that you can give them is time with you, so why not make it extra special time with you and pamper her at the same time?
A spa day package doesn’t have to cost the earth but what a fabulous day out for the two of you! You can either accompany your mum and let her have all the pampering spa treatments or you can join in, depending on how your finances are looking these month. But let’s face it, it would be more pleasurable for the pair of you to trot off and get pampered together, don’t you think?
Well, I scoured the countryside up and down and found some really fantastic spa hotels and resorts that specialise in day packages, all available for Mothers Day.
