The best gifts for Mum are independent!
It’s not too late!
For those who may have *ahem* forgotten or just been far too busy to buy yet – Mother’s Day is on Sunday. But don’t go panic buying online… there is a world of amazing gifts right here in Southport that would make the perfect way to say ‘You’re special’. Here is our top ideas for last minute gift..
1. Pamper them
Could there be anything more wonderful for a busy Mum than an hour or two of peace and tranquillity? Be it a spa day, a massage or facial or a relaxing hair cut or nail treatment. A voucher or booking for one of the great spa’s and salons in town is an easy win! Our picks are Gentle Cosmetics, Beauty Beyond Belief, Portland Hall Spa or G Style but there are too many to share so discover more here.
2. Ask them to pose!
Record the moment with a gorgeous photo shoot! Whether it be a family shot, Mother and daughter or just a stunning individual shots to make her feel like a film star booking a photography session is a wonderful treat. Diana Celine and Yaffe Photography both offer unique, stunning work
3. Shower them in style
For fashion loving Mums there is plenty to choose from in Southport – and don’t be scared of getting it wrong – it would be pretty hard to select something bad from shops such as Momo, Muse and Coco Boutique
4. Make them sparkle
Splash out and light up their eyes with a stunning piece of jewellery from Peter Jackson or Hirons. There are some great offers this week to be taken advantage of too, with 20% off at Diamonds Direct and a free pendant with every £125 spent at Tienne.
5. Sweeten her up
Feed a sweet tooth with traditional sweets from Sweet Memories, Jasper’s or Sweets Factory (who are offering 10% of Mother’s Day chocolates).Lilibets & Cake Creations have stunning hand make cakes and patisseries or if she likes to do the baking, kit her out at All About Cake
6. Interior Design
For those loving nothing more than home décor – Harvest Moon stocks some amazing, unique treasures and new indie on the block Lavish Homes has a 48 hour flash sale starting tomorrow! There are plenty of brilliant antique shops worth exploring for a one off find too.
7. Book lovers
We love receiving a book as a gift. We believe they are something to be treasured and we love the romance of a message written on the inside cover. Explore Broadhursts books and find beautiful stories or perhaps a rare edition of her favourite book she can keep forever?
8. Make music & Art
If music is her thing then she may love a classic, collectable vinyl of her favourite album or a selection of classic cd’s.Have fun browsing through Quicksilvers extensive collection.If she likes to make the music as well as listen – don’t be fooled by the name – Dad’s Guitars in Wayfarers may be the place to head. For Art lovers Belle Fauve & Scout is the perfect place to head
9. Tea for two
The gift of your company is always going to be special (we hope).Book her an afternoon tea in one of Southport’s gorgeous independent cafes and give her your undivided attention.Some of Southport’s best restaurants also have some brilliant Mother’s Day meals – but book now before they fill up! There is somewhere for every budget or taste from Twelve to Le Boulevard to Bar & Burger, The Fig Bistro and The Bold. Indeed skip the meal and take her out Saturday for gins at Remedy or cocktails in Corridor!
10. “Something smelly”
How many times has Mum/Gran suggested simply getting her ‘A nice bubble bath or something’?Well up the ante and go for a candle or reed diffuser (50% off) from Candle Delight, natural body scrubs form Gentle Cosmetics or make up from Face Value (at 10% off this week when mentioning #southportindies)
………or alternatively, what about a tattoo? Yes you heard us right. If she is looking for something out of the ordinary that will last a lifetime then booking her in at Ebb & Flow might surprise and amaze her!
