Falling on Sunday 14 March – two weeks before groups of six are allowed to gather together outdoors – lots of us will just be spending it with our nearest and dearest.
But, due to restrictions, many more of us might be apart. Thankfully, whatever your situation, there are myriad ways to commemorate the day and celebrate the mother figure in your life.
But after a year of figuring out lockdown celebrations, birthdays, Christmas and Valentine’s Day, you may be stumped on how to make Mother’s Day feel like an occasion.
But fear not, as M&S are delivering the goods with its Mother’s Day family dine-in meal. With lockdown rules stipulating restaurants must remain closed, recreate the dining-out experience at home by treating your mum and family to a delicious three-course meal.
You can trust our independent round-ups. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing and expert advice. This revenue helps to fund journalism across The Independent.
Availability: From Wednesday 10 March to 14 March
What’s included: Main, three sides and a dessert
Make your meal one to remember this Mother’s Day with M&S’s family dine-in deal. Serving four people with a tempting meal for just £20, it’s available exclusively in-store between 10 and 14 March.
In true M&S fashion, the choices of meals available are delicious and fuss-free – we’d expect nothing less from the “dine in for £10” pioneers. You can enjoy a main, three sides and dessert that will transform your dining table on Mother’s Day.
M&S is also selling special-edition dine-in e-gift cards, with recipients able to use it in-store to purchase their family feast – perfect if you want to treat your mum to an easy lunch from afar.
You’re spoilt for choice with the menu available – decide between six mains including British beef joint with roast beef butter, “full-on-flavour” British roast chicken, “meltingly” tender roast lamb shoulder, outdoor-bred British pork rib roast and a lemon and herb salmon joint.
Or, opt for the vegan option with the brand-new Plant Kitchen “chickenless” roasting joint – a blend of mushrooms, wheat and pea protein, stuffed with sage and onion.
With three sides to pick, decide between “golden” beef dripping roasties and 12 pigs in blankets or choose from the host of vegetarian options available including “ultimate” mashed potato, honey and orange-glazed carrots, braised red cabbage with Bramley apples, mature cheddar cauliflower cheese, asparagus spears, fine green beans and new potatoes.
And finally, proving that this isn’t just any deal, pick a pudding from the indulgent list of desserts, from a New York vanilla cheesecake to a strawberry compote trifle, sticky toffee pudding, hot chocolate fudge pudding, puff pastry Bramley apple pie or a vegan raspberry jelly terrine.
At just £20, and available to buy in-store from now until the day itself, you can’t go wrong this Mother’s Day with M&S’s family feast.
