Whether you call them Mamá, Mum or Madre – it’s time to show her some love… the Cuban way.
For most of us, our mummas are our number one fan, our best friend and the one that is always there for us.
To help you show you Mamá how much you appreciate her, we’ve rounded up seven of the most thoughtful gifts to give her this year because in case you missed it:
Mother’s Day is Sunday 19th March.
1. Give your Mamá a hearty breakfast in bed
This is a classic Mother’s Day gift for a reason. Start her special day with a relaxing breakfast in bed.
Our favourites are avocado on toast, a full grilled breakfast or even a churros tower.
Okay, we’re cheating – the last one you can only get at Revolución de Cuba on our brunch menu BUT if you ask us nicely, we’d be happy to send you the recipe.
Just remember to do the washing up afterwards.
2. Let her unwind at a spa day
The iconic choice for busy mum’s who never put themselves first.
Choose a luxury spa trip where she can be pampered all day. Better yet, make sure you go with her for some quality time with your number one.
We’re talking facial, back massage and maybe even an outdoor pool; if you close your eyes you can pretend you’re in Cuba for real.
3. Subscribe to something she’ll receive once a month
From beautiful bouquets delivered through her letterbox every month to unique boxes of tea and craft kits, a subscription gift is one of the best ways to treat your mamá.
Not only does it show much you know her, but this is a surefire way to make mum feel wonderful long past Mother’s Day, with a gift that keeps on giving.
4. Take her shopping, and for lunch… Your treat.
The most important thing about Mother’s Day is giving your mamá the gift she wants most – your time.
We’re thinking a trip around the shops, where she can pick something she likes. When you’re done if you end up at your nearest Revolución de Cuba for lunch we’d say it’s been a successful day.
Every Sunday we have 50% off food AND 2 for £10 on cocktails* – we won’t tell her if you don’t.
5. Her favourite book
Whether it’s a new bestseller or a timeless classic, it’s a gift that lets her take time for herself to enjoy.
Want to be extra?
Get her an early edition or signed copy of her favourite book. Think hardback, a dust jacket, and an interesting cover. If nothing else, she’ll love that you know her favourite book!
6. Start a new tradition
If you’re looking to do something beyond the usual flowers-and-card routine, start a new tradition outside of the norm that will last for years to come.
Maybe it’s a family hike to a scenic part of the country, a picnic outdoors, or even having professional photographs taken. Whatever you do, make sure you do it every single year, ‘cause it’s a great way to show you care.
7. Take her to Cuba… Sort of
Okay, we’re not talking the country but instead your favourite Latin-American inspired bar; Revolucion de Cuba.
We recommend Afternoon Tea as it’s a guest favourite but if your Mother likes something a bit more boozy, Bottomless Brunch is a close second. Click the links to discover more but before you go, we need to tell you the best bit.
