Thinking about what to get your mum for Mother’s Day?

Time together could be all she’s after!

According to research from Railcard.co.uk, the main thing surveyed mothers want for Mother’s Day is to see their children* (21%), so this year, it might be as simple as being there in person.

Despite this, more traditional gifts like flowers, chocolates and perfume remain the staple when it comes to showing mums our appreciation, with over half of us opting for these old reliables every year (56%). 

With mums also revealing that the worst thing about Mother’s Day is not seeing their children (19%), followed closely by the idea of their kids’ spending money on them (17%), Railcard.co.uk has the perfect gift idea that would mean more quality time with your mum and less time filling a basket with items that don’t mean as much. 

Making memories

With more than one in ten (12%) mums hoping to be taken on a day trip or a weekend away, if you live nearby to each other, why not surprise yours with a Two Together railcard and make a commitment to take more adventures together throughout the year. A Two Together railcard offers 1/3 off train fares allowing you to spend more time and less money visiting places old and new.

Alternatively, at 60 years old a Senior Railcard enables mum to travel solo with the same 1/3 fare discount, with access to First Class bookings meaning you can arrange trips for mum to  exciting new locations across Britain  or simply visit you more often. 

All railcards cost £30 and can save you an average of £152 per year. What’s more, when buying through Railcard.co.uk you can benefit from a range of great deals that can be enjoyed with your mum, here are some of the best:
