Explore the world's most famous botanic garden, just 30 minutes from central London. Magnolia Trees, snowdrops and daffodils are the stars at Kew Gardens during Spring and the perfect destination for those green fingered Mum's. Plus, Kew's orchid exhibition has just been extended until Mother's Day - double whammy!

Is your mum a fashion fan, a well-heeled lady of taste? If so, why not treat her to a night at the movies to catch Yves Saint Laurent - the new biopic about the life of the French fashion house creator. It focuses on his relationship with his boyfriend and business partner Pierre Berge and reveals a tumultuous, tortured side to the flamboyant designer.

All mums welcome an escape from the kitchen so take her for a treat at the delectable Brasserie Blanc. Dotted all over the country, the food is simple and a high quality that comes as close as possible to a swanky home cooked French feast.

Mums spend so much time shopping for their kids making sure they have everything, so why not do the same in return. Treat your mum by taking her shopping and spoil her with a few Mothers Day gifts. Maybe buy her that Aspinal of London handbag she's had her eye on...

The Bodyguard is packed full of songs from the movie soundtrack, belted out from the powerful lungs of Heather Headley, and starring Lloyd Owen in the hunky Kevin Costner role. Laugh, cry, sing your heart out - this musical's got all the right ingredients for a spot of mother-daughter bonding.

If you've done something to upset your mother (forgot her birthday, didn't invite her to your birthday meal, insulted her cooking etc) all sins will be forgiven in return for this ludicrously luxurious gift: a day at Grayshott Spa. There's plenty to fill the time, with 700 acres of National Trust land, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a golf course, swimming pools, a three course lunch and of course the spa facilities (sauna, steam and relaxation rooms). Why not treat her to an Aromatherapy Full Body Massage? GrayshottSpa.com
