Why not choose from the many experiences available that are fit for a Queen if you really want to treat Mum to a Mother’s Day to remember?
If you aren’t confident that the March weather will fall in with your plans, or Mum is known to reach for her headscarf at the first hint of rain, perhaps you would be better off investigating indoor gift experiences. How about a pampering shopping day at John Lewis – it’s by appointment to the Queen, after all!
A jewellery-making class is great fun for Mums of a creative bent, and she’ll have a beautiful hand-made keepsake to treasure afterwards. Even though she might not get to make anything worth a cool couple of billion pounds (the estimated value of the Crown Jewels).
It was an earlier Queen, Elizabeth I, who was famous for her love for theatre, but her passion – and of course the genius of writers like Shakespeare and Marlowe – has left its mark on London centuries later. If your Mum shares this enthusiasm, why not treat her to a theatre-themed break in the capital or a tour of Shakespeare’s Globe?
You could treat Mum to a horse racing day for two as we know Her Majesty loves a flutter on the horses. This will give her the chance to get her glad rags on (don’t forget the white gloves!) and put a few quid on the favourite.
If your mum is an adventurous type, why not let her have a go at medieval jousting for something a little daring? We can’t promise that the present Monarch has ever given it a go, but her ancestors certainly did! Alternatively, let her hone her skills with an introductory trout fishing course. The Queen is partial to a spot of fly fishing when the Royal Family is staying at Balmoral – her ability to read the waters of the River Dee like a book and know exactly when the fish are likely to be jumping is legendary.
