Over the year our mother figures do a lot for us which means that come Mother’s Day it’s important to show thanks for everything they do. I’m sure many of you can agree that buying for your mother on Mother’s Day is no simple task. Each Mum has their own particular likes and dislikes. I have always struggled choosing a gift that shows how much she really means to me. There is however one thing that she has always enjoyed and will probably always enjoy. And that is spending time with her children. I’ve teamed up with UNiDAYS to explain what I did for my mum this Mother’s Day thanks to student discount.
Every year as Mother’s Day rolls around I get stressed thinking about what to get my mum. Even after reading 101 different Mother’s Day gift guides. Nothing ever calls out to me and says “she’ll love this”. I end up resorting to the usual scented candle and box of chocolates, which I’m sure she appreciates but isn’t always exciting to receive year in year out.
This year, I wanted to spice things up and had a look on UNiDAYS for inspiration. They had a 15% discount off Groupon experiences. I produced a lovely afternoon tea voucher for the Foxfield’s Country Hotel. I thought that would be the perfect! This way, mum and I could have a well-deserved break and spend some quality time together over tea and cake.
As both mum and I lead busy lives it’s not always easy to spend time together. So I thought the best way to treat my mum this year would be with some good food and company. I was so excited to team up with UNiDAYS to utilise my student discount and do something different.
The hotel definitely exceeded my expectations. The bar area was incredibly trendy and literally looked like I’d walked in to some fancy place in Shoreditch! You know, the kind where you pay £6.75 for a cranberry juice. It was an Instagram blogger’s idea of heaven with all the marble a girl could ask for! And in essence we had all this luxury at our fingertips with a great saving thanks to the UNiDAYS discount. As this isn’t something we have the opportunity to do very often we saw this as a chance to get dressed up and live the Kardashian lifestyle, even if only for an afternoon.
The afternoon tea itself was gorgeous! A huge variety of cakes and sandwiches arrived beautifully displayed on a circular stand for us to choose from. (my mum is still going on about how delicious the soup was). In true mum style, as soon as we got back home she was on the phone to her friends telling them “GUYS YOU NEED GO TO FOXFIELD’S COUNTRY HOTEL AND TRY THE SOUP”. In all fairness it was incredibly tasty.
