Things To Do This Mother's Day In Birmingham.

Mother's Day is luring and with every year I find myself thinking 'What am I going to do?'. Whether you want to give your Mom the best day out as a gift or as an added extra to your present, Finding the right thing to do can be really difficult. Most places book up in advance, so getting your mits on the best day can be difficult. So here is a run down of the BEST days out, meals, events, venues and free ideas for this Mother's Day.



Days Out

Days out are a great way to spend Mothers Day in style. They don't have to be pricey but they are often a lovely gift alternative. From Spas, Cinemas and Gardens.

Moor Hall Hotel and Spa
Luxury Day that is perfect for Moms, Nans and Moms to Be. 
I recently spent the day there experiencing their Mom to Be package, which included full access to all their facilities, breakfast, lunch and two full treatments. They also have packages available for the non-pregnant mamas, including treatments suited to the elderly. 
It is a lovely way to spend some one to one time with your loved one and really treat them without breaking the bank.

At Malmaison at The Mailbox, you can indulge in two 30 minute treatments and a cocktail for £65 per person. This may not be the way to spend the entire day: but situated in the Mailbox, right in the heart of the shopping centre, you can build a wonderful day of food and spending around the treatments.
