Gifts, ideas and pampering for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is on Sunday 19th March so get inspired at Glasgow Fort.

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, beauty pampers and family days out.

Pick up spring bouquets and selection boxes from Marks & Spencer or discover indulgent gift sets including hot chocolate, biscuits and sweets at Boots, Next and TK Maxx. For at-home afternoon teas and sweet treats, be inspired at Marks & Spencer and Millie’s Cookies.

Candles, gift sets and vouchers

There are also gorgeous candles to be found at Yankee Candle while Rituals have soothing scents, pampering skincare and aromatherapy diffusers that feel indulgent and rejuvenating – making them a simple and easy gift for Mother’s Day.

Don’t miss Superdrug, The Body Shop and Lush for natural, handmade pampering products or head to The Perfume Shop and The Fragrance Shop for her signature scent.

Vouchers are also the perfect way to spoil her – just ask in store or treat her to Vue cinema tickets.

Thoughtful gifts

If she loves cooking, head to ProCook for kitchen finds or don’t miss Waterstones – buy her a gift card or pick up a book she’ll love (The Garnett Girls by Georgina Moore and Closer To Love by Vex King will hit the spot for Mother’s Day and are set to be huge this spring).

Brunches, lunches and evenings out

Go for brunch or lunch at Monterey Jack’s (nachos, burgers, pizzas and salads) or, for later in the evening, head to Leopardo Pizza for artisan sourdough pizzas made with authentic ingredients and served with delicious cocktails.

Head to TGI Fridays for late night bottomless brunch (two hours of unlimited Prosecco, American Pilsner, less than 0.5% ABV CleanCo Gin & Tonic or orange juice).

For a movie and dinner, Five Guys, wagamama and Nando’s make for perfect pitstops before heading to Vue. And, don’t miss personalised pancakes to remember at Stack & Still.

Jewellery and fashion gifts

For an amazing watch, bracelet or a very on-trend chain necklace, head to Warren James, H Samuel and Beaverbrooks. Pandora’s Mother’s Day range includes heart, engraved infinity charms (including one for ‘Nan’) and earrings. You’ll also find gorgeous designs at Chisholm Hunter, Swarovski and S&S Argento.

Tap into spring/summer 2023’s handbag trends with denim, texture, huge bucket designs and knotted pouches leading the way. Mango, H&M, Zara and River Island will have what you need.

For covetable gymwear and athleisure gifts, visit Footasylum, JD Sports and Marks & Spencer for their Goodmove collection.
