Spend Mother's Day in a decadent afternoon aboard the Princess Katherine - with the Cake and Fizz Cruise! The cruise will take you on a 60 minute trip that runs every 75 minutes from Salford Quays boarding point. Take in the magnificent views of Manchester Ship Canal while enjoying delicious cakes, pastries and a glass of fizz.

This is a great idea for a Mother's Day gift if you want something special to do. There's not a lot of cruise-based activities that happen around Manchester, so take advantage of this gift while tickets are on-sale.

3. Mother's Day Puppy Yoga

Does your mum love dogs? Then this gift is perfect to book before Mother's Day. Paw Yoga will be hosting a "puppy yoga" experience for Mother's Day, allowing you to make some furry four-legged friends during the day. Stretch out any anxiety with 30 minutes of yoga while the little rascals run around and introduce themselves to everyone. 

The session will be split into 30 minutes of yoga, and 30 minutes of playtime - enough time for your mum to get to know her new tiny playmates!

4. Cookery Classes At Saddleworth Cookery School

Whether your mum is an expert home chef, or just a real foodie, then Saddleworth's Cookery School is something to look out for. 

Culinary experts in this class will provide their practical tips in cooking - offering individual or group sessions for any age and ability. 

You can book yourself a place this Mother's Day, or any weekend. If you want to do more than just a class, take what you learn and make your mum's favourite dish!

5. Terrarium Classes For Nature-Loving Mums

Consider a terrarium class in Sale! Terrariums are indoor gardens that are self-sustainable, often made using a glass vessel. It's an interesting class for sure, and great for mums who love gardening, nature and greenery overall.

You'll be making beautiful biomes with the use of terrarium-friendly plants, ideal for home decor. This class will be led by friendly teachers Vicky and Ella, and will walk you, your mum or anyone else through the day carefully. 

Don't worry, no prior knowledge is required. Don't miss out on this wonderfully-unique gift for Mother's Day!

What Are You Getting Your Mum? 

Let's be honest, your mum deserves the best. And only you will know more about your mother than anyone else, so take full consideration of what she likes to do throughout the day, and tailor your gift to her enjoyed hobbies!

The best thing about finding gifts that you know your mum will enjoy is the reaction afterwards. So remember to get her something you'll know she won't forget.
