Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 27th March this year, which means it’s almost time to show some love and appreciation to the mother figure in your life.

Whether you’re looking for things to do for Mother’s Day, or you’re on the hunt for the best Mother’s Day gift ideas, their special day starts here at Meadowhall.


Plan the perfect Mother’s Day at Meadowhall:

Spend some quality time together

Sometimes the most special gifts are those that you can enjoy together.

Brunch or afternoon tea is a great way to spend the day, especially if you’re looking for Mother’s Day ideas for what to do. Browse the menu at Café Massarella on Park Lane for avocado, poached eggs with sundried tomatoes on sourdough. Carluccio's new Trio vedura lasagne  is an ideal lunchtime treat– or celebrate in style with a bottomless brunch at Giraffe. If you choose Las Iguanas for Mother's Day brunch you get a free glass of bubbles for Mum.

Enjoy a pamper day together visiting Thérapie, Brows or Dermalogica with a range of skincare or manicure treatments available. Don’t forget to visit Meadowhall’s style suite too for a fashion styling session with Peter, our Personal Stylist.


Enjoy a fun family day out

Make a day of it and head out for some family fun. Whether you hit the shops to let them pick out the perfect present, get competitive with a trip to Funstation or Rock Up, or grab some popcorn and enjoy a movie together at Vue – there’s plenty of fun to be had at Meadowhall.

It doesn’t take big gestures to show someone how much they mean to you, a small token to say ‘thanks’ is sometimes all that it takes.

You can’t go wrong with a bunch of Mother’s Day flowers or even a new houseplant from M&S or Plantology to brighten up their day. Don’t forget to visit Clintons, Paperchase or Card Zone for a Mother’s Day card too.
