Last Minute Mother’s Day Ideas

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mum’s out there! Sons, daughters, we hope you’ve got something nice planned with you mum today! If not, we’re going to give you a gentle push in the right direction – but be quick, some of these may already be booked up today!

1. Cupcakes and coffee


As far as tearooms go, Sheffield is starting to create a quaint little cafe culture – great news for you and your last minute plans as all mums love coffee and cake! From nipping into town to Tamper or Steamyard, down Abbeydale Road to our favourites Jameson’s, Forge Bakehouse or Bragazzi’s, or even across to Kelham Island to Depot Bakery, your mum is sure to love it. Just make sure you pay!

2. A spot of shopping

Hopefully you’ve remembered to buy your mum something for Mother’s Day. But if not, there’s still time before you see her today! Pop into town and find her something individual down Division Street, or find her something a bit more sentimental in the Antiques Quarter. If you’re not sure what to get her, you could even take her shopping and combine it with a spot of lunch!


3. A cinema date

Curzon, Sheffield’s newest addition to the cinema scene is quite unlike anything else in the city. Tucked down a side-street in the city centre, in a former banking building, it has been transformed into a chic and intimate cinema which makes for a great experience. With a lovely rooftop bar on offer, delightful in-film snacks and all round great vibes, this is the best place in town to pop out for a film at the minute!

4. Mamma Mia

Mother’s Day is going to be special down at Marco’s New York Italian Sheffield.

Treat the most important woman in your life to a wonderful three course lunch or dinner off our Italian American inspired menu or choose A la Carte.

Best enjoyed with a glass of prosecco or two in the comfortable, glamourous surroundings of Marco’s Sheffield.

5. A spot of gardening

The Botanical Gardens is large enough to occupy a good few hours, whether it’s spotting the signs of spring in the well-maintained verges, being entertained by the cocky squirrels, exploring the bear pit, or simply watching the world go by from the arsenal of benches near the top entrance. The Curator’s House tearoom has a two or three course Mother’s Day menu, but it’s also a good spot for a quick cuppa and a snack.
