It's that time of year again; the time when we all show a little r-e-s-p-e-c-t to our mums and thank them for putting up with us. With the best gift of all ... FOOD! 

With so many amazing restaurants in our wee town, the tricky bit is deciding where to take her, am I right? Luckily we've done the hard work for you and lined up these premium foodie deals for you and your Ma to enjoy together.

This Mother's Day, we've teamed up with brunch bosses Starfish & Coffee. The brunches at Starfish & Coffee are some of the best we've had – and boy, we've had a lot – so take Mum for a proper treat, and thank us later. 

Wriggle on over to Starfish & Coffee for a right royal welcome for mum, two mouthwateringly delicious-sounding brunch dishes and two blood orange mimosas. Go on, she's worth it!

This year, Metrodeco are taking a stand. They reckon that Mother's Day just isn't enough time to show our long-suffering mums how much they mean to us, so they've pioneered Mother's Week: a week-long celebration of the amazing matriarchs in our lives. We reckon that those guys might be right, so we're urging you all to get a Wriggle on over to Metrodeco and show your mum some love with this extra-special, indulgent treat.

With this Wriggle, you'll both enjoy a luxurious afternoon tea, served on stunning vintage crockery and three-tier cake stands, alongside a pot of specially blended tea, and a glass of crisp, sparkling prosecco each, served in vintage Babycham glasses. It's a totally decadent treat, and one that we can guarantee your Mama will be grateful for. 

With this Wriggle, you and your mama will be sipping on a luxurious gin flight each, choosing three boutique gins from Metrodecos's extensive list of treats. Your server will talk you through the gins and their characteristics, and each is served with a different garnish and Fever Tree tonic. 

Alongside your gin flights, you'll also be nibbling on a fully loaded cheese board; the perfect accompaniment to all that juniper-based goodness. We can't think of a better way to spend an evening: gin, cheese, and our wonderful Mums. We'll drink to that!

Treat yourself and a very lucky loved one this weekend, with this fabulously luxurious afternoon tea for two. The afternoon tea takes place in the glorious Stanmer House – a grade II listed building that exudes indulgence, decadence and class – just like the afternoon tea itself.

So, what delectable treats will you and your lucky companion be tucking into? The afternoon tea includes two glasses of chilled prosecco, two hot drinks served with traditional French macaroons, 2 kinds of mini pastries (éclair and tart), two homemade scones with jam and clotted cream, and a selection of finger sandwiches.

This Mother's Day, forget dragging your poor old mum along to some stuffy, packed-out restaurant that's overflowing with last-minute-Larries who only remembered to book a table that morning. Instead, treat the special lady in your life to an incredible, interactive Mother's Day Brunch vegan supper club. 

Two absolute stalwarts of the Brighton vegan scene, Nine Lives Vegan and Viva Los Vegan have teamed up to devise a brilliantly interactive event that's perfect for Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents, kids, and anyone else in-between. For the adults, there'll be cookery demonstrations and time-saving tips, whilst for kids there'll be a creative Mother's day card making lesson. Expect live music from The Vegan Buskers, and an open house art gallery display. 

Ever tried any Greek wines?

Thought not. Let's put an end to that serious deprivation right away, Wriggler, with this incredible Greek wine tasting event from the wonderful team at Plateau and the very knowledgable Maria from Southern Wine Roads. At the event, you'll taste six different Greek wines, as well as some delicious nibbles, all whilst learning about Greek wine producing regions.

This Mothers Day, treat your hero to a truly unique experience to remember!

Work with the worlds finest, organic Peruvian cacao in our action-packed, hands-on workshops - there's a glass of Prosecco included for each guest! What more could a mum want? Except for you to settle down and get a real job! Get your aprons on, get messy and learn to temper your own chocolate from scratch on large marble slabs, just like real chocolatiers, using traditional methods and equipment. Learn fascinating facts, the history, the culture and science of chocolate! Then take it all home... If it makes it that far.
