What ‘Mother’ Means – Poem by Karl Fuchs 

‘Mother’ is such a simple word,

But to me there’s meaning seldom heard.

For everything I am today,

My mother’s love showed me the way.

I’ll love my mother all my days,

For enriching my life in so many ways.

She set me straight and then set me free,

And that’s what the word “mother” means to me.

Thanks for being a wonderful mother, Mom!

Once a year, we get a whole day to show our mums and mother figures how loved and appreciated they are. We understand life can sometimes get in the way and Mother’s Day can often creep up, resulting in the classic last-minute flowers and chocolates. So to keep you from being caught in the supermarket-flower-frenzy this year, read our short guide on how to make mum smile!

Remember, it’s not always about showering them with expensive gifts and splashing out on fancy dinners, sometimes a heartfelt gesture and a simple home-cooked meal (rule: Mum strictly stays out of the kitchen) can go a long way!

Something to Experience…

They say time is the best gift, right? Treat Mum to some well deserved time away to relax, or experience something new together. Think spa days, city breaks, or that cooking masterclass she’s been talking about. Whatever you are looking for, London has it all! We can guarantee smiles when staying with us, and you won’t even have to lift a finger, from her favourite flowers and fizz awaiting her arrival to her favourite dinner courtesy of our private Michelin starred chef.

Why not take advantage of our Kensington Weekday Escape offer? In collaboration with Repose Space and Publiq London, this package includes facials, cocktails, and of course our very own breakfast in bed! How’s that for topping our Mother’s day gift guide?
