Gifts, ideas and pampering for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is on Sunday 19th March so get inspired at Drake Circus and The Barcode.

It’s got everything you could possibly need to treat your mum (or grandma, step-mum, family friends) to flowers, jewellery, vouchers and gift sets to brunches and dinner, beauty pampers and family days out.

Flowers, chocolate, books, candles and vouchers

For flowers and chocolate, pick up spring bouquets from Marks & Spencer or discover Hotel Chocolat’s beautifully wrapped Gin and Liqueurs mix, bottles of Prosecco and bright yellow Mother’s Day tasting boxes.

Discover indulgent gift sets from Next, Superdrug and Boots. There are also brightly wrapped surprise boxes with fresh, handmade bath bombs, soaks and body sprays from Lush and signature scents to be found at Superdrug, The Fragrance Shop and The Perfume Shop.

Vouchers are also the perfect way to spoil her – most of Drake Circus’ stores offer gift cards or treat them to an unforgettable experience or day out.

From Cineworld vouchers to treatments at the Laser Clinic. Or head to Waterstones for a book voucher or some of this spring’s most wanted books (The Garnett Girls by Georgina Moore and Closer To Love by Vex King will hit the spot for Mother’s Day).

For at-home afternoon teas and sweet treats, be inspired at Marks & Spencer, Krispy Kreme and Hotel Chocolat.

Serving up a delicious main course (think chilli bowls, burgers and jackfruit curry) plus unlimited cocktails, Corona, prosecco or mocktails, it’s a fun and welcoming spot. ,

Cosy Club is also a brilliant place for brunch with a full menu of eggs, shakshuka and pancakes and bacon buns or for a cream tea. Head to Brewdog, Yo! and Zizzi for menus of burgers, sushi, pizza and pasta and follow up with a trip to dessert heaven at Kaspa’s to choose from shakes, waffles, cakes and puddings made exactly the way you want.

Make it a day to remember… See a family movie at Cineworld, let the kids let loose at Paradise Island Adventure Golf or enjoy a meal with children’s menus at Nando’s, Zizzi and Burger King. It’s the perfect Mother’s Day together.

Finally, don’t forget your Mother’s Day cards
