Ways to treat your Mum on Mother's Day

Wondering how you can treat your wonderful Mum this coming Mother's Day? We have some lovely little ways that you can show them how much they mean to you.

Mums deserve a treat each and every day of the year, but on Mother's Day you can make it extra special.

Appetising afternoon tea

Dainty sandwiches, freshly baked cakes and scones, accompanied by cups of tea or coffee. An afternoon treat fit for a queen (or a duchess to be historically precise).

Afternoon tea at Baxters Highland Village on Speyside


Our Baxters Highland Village on Speyside was well-known for serving up a delightful afternoon tea. Now, in Fochabers, a delicious afternoon tea is available from our neighbours at Christies Garden Centre or Gordon Castle.

Or, enjoy a sweet Scottish afternoon tea at home with our case of gorgeous goodies - The Afternoon Tea Hamper - including treats from the Audrey Baxter Signature Range, Speyside Coffee Roasting Co., The Wee Tea Company, The Island Bakery and Highland Chocolatier.

Walking in the wilderness

A Sunday stroll in the great outdoors is a great escape from everyday life. The wind in your hair, the sun on your face and the sound of nature surrounding you.

The deserted Glenan Village on Argyll's Secret Coast


Eilidh Cameron and Eve MacFarlane recently shared with us some of their favourite walks and places to see across Scotland. Not nearby? That's not a problem, as the National Trust has listed ten of the top walks in Britain, as voted for by the nation.

At this time of year, there's still a nip in the air so make sure to pull on your comfiest pair of walking boots and wrap up warm.

Creative cocktails

A flute of fizz or a classic cocktail is a perfect way to spend a Mother's Day evening, whilst reading a favourite book, watching television or spending quality time together.

Highland Kir Royale


A Highland Kir Royale by Baxters of Scotland



We've taken the Kir Royale, a classic category of cocktail, and given it a Highland makeover. Not with tartan or heather but with the finest Scottish produce.

This perfect aperitif combines our limited edition Blackcurrant & Cassis Conserve with a bramble liqueur from the Isle of Jura and Esterlin Champagne.

Soothing spa day

On Mothering Sunday, a day spent at home is a day well spent. Sit back and relax in the comfort of your own home and be indulged with a beautiful selection of pampering products.

Ishga's organic seaweed Self Care Body Set provides a rejuvenating and relaxing experience where you will be transported to the turquoise shores of the Hebrides.


Fragrant flowers

Every lady loves flowers, whether it's a big bouquet or a perfect posy.



In the season of spring, we love tulips, hyacinths, oriental lilies, roses, cherry blossom, gerberas, lisianthus, eucalyptus and carnations.

At our special launch event, Garlands Florist in Edinburgh added a vibrant pop of colour to the room with their lovely floral arrangements.

Tasty treats

Of course, gifting a beautiful box of extra special items is our top treat for Mother's Day. From the moment she lifts the lid, your Mum will have a smile on her face.
