There’s no love like a mother’s love, so treat your ma this Mother’s Day in Edinburgh! From flowers to spa packages, and a cat-filled café, our blog has all the ingredients to spoil your mum on a mother’s special day!

One Spa
Sheraton Grand Hotel,  8 Conference Square, Edinburgh, EH3 8AN


Treat your mum to the ‘Number One Mum’ spa package at One Spa. After her Li'tya Lowana – a relaxing Facial, Hand & Foot treatment, she can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of One Spa’s facilities. Their iconic rooftop pool is perfect for a stress-free Mother’s Day.  The ‘Number One Mum’ spa day is available to book Sunday to Thursday, between 15th and 26th March, for just £97.00 per person.

The Royal Botanic Gardens
Arboretum Place, Edinburgh EH3 5NZ

For little ones who want to make something special for their Mum head along to the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh on Saturday 7th March for their Daffodil Pot Decorating Workshop with Lindt chocolatier. Taking place in their Real Life Sciences Studio from 1pm to 4pm, create a wonderful pot for your daffodils and receive a Gold Bunny gift tag and a chocolate treat for you and mum. The event is suitable for all ages and no booking is required.

On Mother’s Day itself a trip to the Botanics to see their beautiful blooms is a wonderful alternative to buying a bouquet. You could even treat her to a spot on lunch in the lovely Gateway Restaurant which offers fantastic views of the gardens.

Maison de Moggy
26 Hamilton Place, Edinburgh, EH35AU


Maison de Moggy is any cat-loving mum’s idea of heaven! Based in Stockbridge, this cat-filled café allows six slots a day to spend with the kitties – puuuurrfect for those mums who cannot have a cat of their own. Enjoy a cuppa and a slice of cake surrounded by furry feline friends.

Please note pre-booking is required for slots of one hour at a time. There is a fee of £6 on weekdays and £7 on weekends.

Dirty Dancing

If she fancied Johnny Castle in 1987, she will certainly still fancy him now! Dirty Dancing is the perfect Mother’s Day treat. This all singing, all dancing production of the Hollywood classic will have you swinging in the Playhouse’s aisles and waiting for your own Johnny Castle to sweep you off your feet. Remember to not leave Mummy in a corner this Mother’s Day.

Dirty Dancing is showing at Edinburgh Playhouse until Saturday 14th March – a great early Mother’s Day treat.
