Sales manager at The Grand Hotel Eastbourne Lindsay Hawley offers up some last minute suggestions for making your Mother’s Day special this year.

Looking for the perfect gift for your mum can be tricky. However, just spending some quality time together can make all the difference and be a mutually enjoyable treat for both of you. What can be nicer than a chance to catch up together, have a chat, and unwind whilst giving your mum a well-earned rest?

A recent poll of 1,000 British mums by Zao Makeup UK revealed that experiences are what mums craved, rather than material gifts. Top of the list, with over a quarter of the votes, was some time off.

26% of mums would like a holiday

As we all know, mums very rarely get to put their feet up so unsurprisingly topping the table was a relaxing break. A weekend away, a day trip somewhere special or a week’s retreat will all work wonders to rejuvenate your mum.

20% of mums want to be wined and dined

Hot on the heels of a relaxing break was dinner in a favourite restaurant. This is a great way to take the stress out of Mothering Sunday and for the whole family to enjoy a meal together without any of the hassle of cooking or washing up!

Alternatively, how about indulging in a quintessentially British Afternoon Tea or enjoying the evening in a chic Cocktail Bar?

Here at the Grand Hotel we have three different wining and dining options available for Mothering Sunday. Follow this link for more information or for a last minute treat, how about investing in some Elite vouchers so your mum can take her pick from our range of dining options?

Twelve per cent of mums wanted a spa treatment day. Who doesn’t want to be pampered? And what better way to relax than with a day filled with wonderful treatments such as a massage or facial? Mums will feel extra special after a day unwinding in peace and tranquillity.

How about bringing your mum to The Grand for an indulgent spa day or a special beauty treatment? Relax in our warm sauna and steam room and take a dip in the heated indoor swimming pool. For more information visit

9% of mums wanted a bouquet of flowers

A beautiful, fresh bouquet of your mum’s favourite flowers is certain to put a smile on her face.
