Posted 2nd Mar 2019


Trying to work out what to do to celebrate Mother's Day this year? Here is a rundown of all of our top city centre ideas to show mum (or a mother figure) how much you care.

A Pamper Session

Nourishing Insights on St Andrew Street is an independent health and massage shop in Aberdeen. They offer nutritional and massage therapy including Swedish Massage, Indian Head Massage and Natural Facelift Facials. Enjoy a pamper session with mum!

A Style Overhaul

If your mum is into all things fashion, a personal styling session could be just the thing. John Lewis offer five free style services tailored to whatever you are looking for. From holiday clothing to workwear or a seasonal refresh, this service is free to use and can help get you inspired and trying on clothing you wouldn’t normally go for. Book this in for mum alongside a Bon Accord gift card for a full shopping experience or book yourself in too for a fun styling experience together.

A Night at the Theatre

If your mum enjoys culture, the theatre could be the perfect thing to do to show that you care. Aberdeen Performing Arts has an extensive list of shows on during Mother’s Day week. From comedy performances, to classic plays there is something on to suit all tastes. Plus, Aberdeen’s Jazz Festival kicks off on the 21st of March and will see some great musicians performing all the way up until Mother’s Day itself.

Dinner at Miller & Carter

If you fancy treating your mum to dinner, why not give Miller & Carter a try?
