A reminder Mother’s Day is Sunday 10 May (you’re welcome) and buying a present or experience locally would not only please mum but could really help out our local businesses doing it tough. Here are some ideas.

Brunching COVID-19 style

Many restaurants and cafes are also offering Mother’s Day brunch, lunch and dinner packages delivered direct to your door. Find out if your local is doing anything special and support them during this time.

You can also support your local restaurants and cafes by buying a gift voucher and going out for a meal together at a later date.

Love for local retailers

Lots of local dress shops, gift shops and other retailers are open or have online stores with lots of great last minute gift ideas for mum.

Experiences will be hot

Once restrictions ease we’ll all be bursting to get out! Gifts like a cooking class, movie vouchers, art workshop, local spa voucher or brewery tour are still available and have long expiry dates – you could get two and do them together.

A perfect local present is the gift of theatre with a gift voucher to Glen Street Theatre which you can enjoy when their doors reopen.

Donate to your mum’s favourite charity

Do some good and give the money you would spend on a material gift to a charity your mum feels passionate about. There are many ways you can help our local community right now, check out this page for some inspiration.

A green gift for their home or garden

We’re all spending a lot of time at home and what kitchen or living room isn’t improved by a hardy indoor plant? Pick one up at a local nursery.

Wrap your gifts sustainably by using old wrapping paper, ribbon, fabric, newspaper and make your own cards.
