If you haven’t yet had time to purchase anything for Mother’s Day then
shame on you do not fear! We have compiled a list of last minute gifts that you can nip out and nab for your lovely Mums as well as some info on a few events taking place around Manchester over the weekend that will make the perfect Mother’s day treat for both Mum and you! The Avenue, Spinningfields, has some luxurious gifts on offer if you’re seeking to pamper and indulge this Mother’s Day and lets face it, she deserves it! Regardless of budget, there are a whole host of gifts that you can give to leave any Mum feeling nothing short of extra-special. These striking Mulberry purchases are perfect for helping Mum to master the bold trend of block primary colours in the season ahead. The elegant and compact French purse has just enough room for all the necessaries, whilst the classic leather make-up case will keep all of her beauty essentials close to hand, perfect for those touch ups on the go.
If you’re searching for a special beauty product for mum this year, Origins have a fantastic new range of Plantscription products, which use the power of nature to reduce signs of ageing. This Firming Cream is supposed to help maintain a beautiful youthful jawline and increase heart-shaped facial definition with ingredients including Raspberry Plant Stem Cells, Shea Butter and Mango Seed Butter. You’ll have her looking and smelling delicious!
Special little treats are perfect for making big gestures and for that we recommend Chanel. Their Nail Polishes come in a variety of stunning shades and will add a chic element to any look. This retractable Kabuki brush will make a perfect edition to Mum’s make-up collection. It is incredibly soft to the touch and delightful on application. The result is an impeccable, perfectly smooth and even makeup finish.
This True Grace candle is soothing & relaxing; the delicate fragrances create the sensation of walking through rolling banks of Lavender in flower. Perfect for relaxing.
Spring may well be in full swing but we all know what the British weather can be like, unpredictable to say the least, especially in Manchester! Make sure your Mums prepared with this teeny tiny umbrella that fits perfectly into any handbag and looks pretty cute too!
We all know jewellery is the way to every girl’s heart, including Mum’s! This purse friendly ring from Topshop is classic and can be worn every day. The pastel green stone will contrast nicely with a vibrant nail colour.
If you fancy making a day of it, then we suggest heading over to Selfridges in Exchange Square on Saturday 29th March, where, from 12pm – 6pm they are combining pamper packages, luxury gifts, delicious food and drink and bespoke complementary services to give shoppers the perfect way to say thank-you to Mum, whilst spending quality time together, in style!
Shoppers and their Mothers can enjoy complimentary mini makeovers, a file and polish or a massage and exclusive gifts and services designed to make mum feel extra special. Bespoke calligraphy, complimentary engraving with any purchase of 100ml fragrance and a beautiful posy to take away on the day (with every £150 spend) will also be available.
For those feeling a little peckish, Farmacia Del Dolce will be offering a variety of indulgent afternoon teas from traditional cream to luxurious champagne, in addition to their usual menu. Up on the second floor, Bottega will be serving a spectacular Mother’s Day dish designed by San Carlo Group’s star chef Aldo Zilli; a deliciously delectable sea-food pasta dish, perfect served with a glass of chilled fizz.
And if all else fails and you’re a fan of keeping it simple and sweet, then why not just go for a beautiful bunch of Spring flowers. The expert team of Florists at David Wayman in The Avenue will be sure to design a bespoke bunch to suit her unique taste.
