The Mother’s Day out that costs £7,500!

Treat your mum to Fortnum & Mason’s once-in-a-lifetime experience… for just seven grand

Were you never you mum’s favourite? Do you suspect she always loved your siblings more than you? Or are you just a mummy’s boy, looking to show your never-ending devotion by giving your mother a luxury-laden day to beat anything your dad has ever done for her on Sunday 15 March? Well, here’s your solution – The Ultimate Mother’s Day Experience from Fortnum & Mason.

The day begins when a chauffeur arrives at your ma’s house with a team of Fortnum’s experts who will present her with a truly stunning bouquet of her favourite flowers. A butler then prepares a range of taste-bud tingling breakfast cocktails (hic!), while Fortnum’s chef cooks up a bountiful breakfast banquet for the whole family – using the world’s finest ingredients and served with personalised champagne to commemorate the occasion, naturally.

From there, your family will be chauffeured to Fortnum & Mason’s flagship store on Piccadilly for an afternoon of pure luxury. Mother dearest will be treated to personal consultations with F&M’s in-house experts, including a perfumer and Fortnum’s own in-house milliner, while the family joins a personal shopper to select the finest Mother’s Day gifts from across the store’s five floors.

With your mum feeling suitably spoilt, and all gifts secured, you’ll then make your way to the private tea tasting room for a consultation with a tearista to find your perfect blend, accompanied by a show-stopping personalised cake. By now your dad and/or siblings will be examining their shoes while you positively glow with smugness. You’re definitely her favourite now.

To round off the day you’ll be chauffeured home complete with your gifts and a luxury hamper packed full of your mum’s favourite Fortnum delights.

This is certainly not an off-the-peg experience though (and starting at £7,500, we should think not): you will liaise with Fortnum’s team to exactly tailor the day’s activities to your mum’s specific tastes. Nothing, says F&M, is beyond the realms of possibility, so you can ensure every element will surprise, delight and spoil her on her special day… and make your dad’s gift look like he bought her a lump of coal by comparison.


The Ultimate Mother’s Day Experience can be arranged by calling Fortnum & Mason on: +44 (0)207 973 5602, although it is limited to addresses within Greater London and the Home Counties, presumably because nobody else in the UK can afford it.
