Mother's Day in Edinburgh 2017

Mother's Day in Edinburgh 2017 Treats & Gift Ideas

Does your mum deserve something special this Mothering Sunday (March 26th)? Why not forget the usual gifts and treat her to something different this year? There are plenty of Mother’s Day treats and events in Edinburgh for 2017. Here are just some of the ways you could surprise her in style:

Champagne Afternoon Tea at Prestonfield Hotel

This afternoon ritual is not just a special treat but something of an institution at Prestonfield. Served in our restaurant, Rhubarb and our other delightful dining spaces, guests can expect our own finely-blended teas and a selection of home-baked delights from hot savouries to perfect scones. Or you could add a glass of something special to Mothering Sunday and upgrade to a special Champagne Afternoon Tea.

Impeccable service and our gorgeous setting make this a Mother’s Day treat to remember! Beautifully presented vouchers are also available so you can offer the experience as a gift. Of course, you could also book for a delightful lunch or evening meal in Rhubarb Restaurant. Or for truly decadent Mother’s Day in Edinburgh, look no further than our sister establishment, The Witchery By the Castle.

Take a Journey Into Art


For a day out with mother to satisfy the most ardent of art lovers, Scotland’s National Galleries are one of Edinburgh’s true gems. March 2017 is an especially rich time to visit too, as visitors can catch the end of the 2016 Portrait Award entrants, enjoy special focus exhibitions on artists including Joan Eardley and Bridget Riley, or perhaps journey into rich exhibitions such as The Modern Portrait, Scots in Italy: Artists and Adventurers or The View From Here, the collection’s dynamic current expose of landscape photography.

Spa Days for Her in Edinburgh

Another superb treat for Mother’s Day is to gift her some luxury TLC at one of Edinburgh’s Spas. You could hand-pick her a special spa day of treatments, but the safer option might be a gift voucher so she can choose her own favourite body therapies for some serious relaxation. One of the best options in Edinburgh is The Bannatyne Spa. With a city centre location and a range of spa days and customised gifting options to create the ideal Mother’s Day pampering session in the city.

Make a Song & Dance of it!


When was the last time you took your mum for a night of live entertainment? Nothing adds to the sense of occasion like a great performance at one of the city’s many theatres and venues. If mother is a dancing fan, Michael Flatly’s Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games features stand out performances and show-stopping tunes galore on Sunday 26th March at the Play House. Or if an all-singing affair is more her cup of tea, a special performance by award-winners the Edinburgh Singers at Canongate Kirk on Mothering Sunday promises a stirring set of acapella songs in a wonderful location.

A Luxury Cinematic Experience

Is your mother a film lover? While a night at the pictures is something you might enjoy at any time of year, few cinemas can compare with Edinburgh’s Dominion. Many locals’ choice for the best cinema in the city, this place is hard to beat for the ultimate luxury movie experience. How does your own reclining sofa, deluxe treats and perhaps a glass of fine wine sound? There are few more stylish ways to enjoy the latest movies in the city- and you can also buy movie experiences as gift vouchers.

Mother's Day Gift Vouchers

Prestonfield have a range of gift vouchers that make for the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Treat her to a luxury 3-course dining experience in our restaurant, Rhubarb, with our restaurant gift vouchers as your way of saying thank you. Or, for the perfect memorable afternoon treat with roaring open fires, our afternoon tea gift vouchers are for you.

They can be purchased online or over the phone by calling our team on, +44 (0)131 225 7800.
