Mother’s Day is on Sunday 31st March 2019 and lots of our local restaurants and attractions are putting on special events. Here’s our guide to where to go and what to buy for mums this year –
I usually end up every year with a bottle of gin (which I am not complaining about!) and some delightful ‘craft’ that my kids have made for me. I like to try and buy local and support local businesses so here are a few ideas for different gifts:
Thoughtful Box – Seeds of Love. Based in Yorkshire, Katie at Seeds of Love has added to her range of bespoke flower seed packets with these beautiful Mother’s Day specific poems, Mother’s Day – Sweet Pea ‘Mumsie’ – Thoughtful Box. They say all the words you are searching for and as the flowers grow, your love will show, year after year.
Choose from Sweet Pea ‘Mumsie’ or Poppy ‘Mother of Pearl’ seeds. Any wording can be changed to suit so if you are wanting gifts for Grandma or Nanna, just get in touch! Or, if you want a poem to go in one of our popular double heart frames with a treasured print alongside, don’t hesitate to email your specific requirements. Also, in our Thought-Full range, we have a number of meaningful gifts which are sure to melt Mum’s hearts!
The Mile in Pocklington: The farmshop sells some lovely local gifts and their produce section only stocks Yorkshire produce, including gins, wine, jams and preserves. They sell lots of unique, personalised photo gifts too so you can print out a picture of the kids or whole family on lots of different items from place mats and mugs to cushions and rugs! It’s also a lovely place to spend Mother’s Day as they have cafe with a small soft play, find out more on their website here.
Gift Vouchers: These always go down well as mum can choose what she wants herself! De Lacy Hair & Beauty in Willerby have vouchers available to buy for any amount or for a specific treatment. They have a great Offer on Mumbler at the moment for their Superfood Facial, usually £48 it’s just £29.50 until the end of March so book your mum in for one in the lead up to Mother’s Day.

Walks & the Outdoors: Being with your family is what it’s all about on Mother’s Day, so if going out for a meal seems like an impossible idea with young children in tow (I know, I’ve been there, still am some days), there are still plenty of things you can do to make the day special. I find that I am at my happiest when my kids are happy, which is what you want if you want to enjoy Mother’s Day, and this usually happens when we are outdoors, and they are burning off some energy. There are loads of ideas for Days Out on Mumbler – if the weather is nice you could go for a stroll in the Humber Bridge Country Park, have a wander on Beverley Westwood or visit one of the local Nature Reserves or woodland areas – you’ll find plenty of options in the Great Outdoors page here. There are also heaps of attractions you could visit, find them on the Days Out Attractions page here.
