How To Treat Your Mum This Mother's Day
We’re all crazy about our mums. All over Manchester, they fuss over us and guide us, encourage us and keep us in line. Luckily there’s at least one day every year when the tables are turned and it’s our chance to do the looking after. This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 26th March. Grab your mum or anyone who has been like a mum to you, and take a look at some of System One Travel’s ideas on how to treat her this Mother’s Day.
We’ve got a wide range of suggestions so, no matter what your budget or your mum’s tastes, we’re sure that you’ll find something suitable somewhere in Great Manchester. It might be just around the corner from you or a short trip away, once you’ve decided how to treat that special lady, plan your trip and make sure you’re ready to pay tribute to your mum.
Get Those Cuban Heels Dancing
Celebrate with your mum Latino-Style at Revolucion De Cuba’s Dia de las Madres event. 2-4-1 coffees, cocktails and mocktails, and a selection of tapas make this restaurant an affordable option for every budget, even you cash strapped students!
Or take a look at other restaurant offers around Greater Manchester, all offering fabulous Mother’s Day deals!
Revolucion De Cuba is open til 2am every Sunday, you can let your mum dance the night away to live music then let her rest her feet as you both chill out in the exclusive Havana Club Bar. A definite treat for two or more!
If dancing and tapas isn’t your mum’s thing, then treat her to something more leisurely. A Spa day at one of many gorgeous beauty centres around Greater Manchester could be just the ticket.
Better The Salon You Know?
Prefer to keep things local? Mother’s Day budget won’t stretch to a hotel spa? Book her a manicure, facial or hairdo at her favourite salon instead. The Beauty Lounge in Bolton, Pamper Me in Stockport, Monton Hair and Beauty in Salford and Elegance Hair and Beauty in West Didsbury all offer special packages for your mum to enjoy.
If pampering is your thing too, don’t worry, you can get in on the act by finding a treatment that you can both share. Why should mum have all the fun?
Light Up Her Life
Help your mum to create a relaxing haven at home with one of hundreds of aromatic candles from Yankee. With several outlets throughout Greater Manchester, you won’t be far from the delicious scents that will provide your mum with a treat for the senses long after Mother’s Day has been and gone.
A range of suitable motherly gifts, including flameless fragrancers, candle jars and tea light holders, await!
Treat Her To A Fairytale
The long-awaited revamp of Disney’s classic animation, Beauty and the Beast, finally waltzes its way into cinemas throughout Greater Manchester this month. What better way to celebrate your mother’s loveliness than by taking her to the movies to see this live action version of the film she may have watched with you as a child?
Grab some popcorn and a drink as you head to the screens at the Showcase in Belle Vue, IMAX at Manchester Printworks, Cineworld in Ashton-under-Lyne, and the Vue in Bury or any one of the regions cinemas. Make sure you bring your tissues, it could be an emotional ride!
No one knows your mother better than you do, so perhaps you’re looking for something a bit more thoughtful… something only you could think of. Try finding something practical that she really needs - slippers or a hot water bottle, for example - and then go down the wacky route.
A completely random gift will make your mum laugh out loud and remind her of you every time she sees it, even if she only thinks, “What on earth…”!
