Last minute Mother's Day ideas

5 May 2020

Considering it’s hard to know what day of the week it is, I’m sure there are plenty of you who have forgotten about Mother’s Day which is this Sunday. If you don’t know what day today is, it’s Tuesday so you have 5 days! 

Because we are all in a bit of a sticky situation together and well there’s no time to do any online shopping and with most of the shops shut you don’t have a lot to pick from in what to get for a few days away, so we have listed a few local places around the Newcastle area that you can help support and that are sure to make mums day.


The Gift Box Co - these guys have some great stuff from grazing boxes to fix the sweet tooth or if your more of a savory person to flowers and some gift box sets. You really can’t go wrong with checking these guys out, but get in quick to avoid disappointment.  

Palm and Pine - Balloons, Balloons, Balloons can you ever go wrong with ever getting anyone balloons? I don’t think so and especially with the amazing stuff these guys put together. Be sure to head over and check out the personalised balloons you can get for mum or nan on Mother’s Day, they also have a few other things you can add to your cart at checkout to make your gift extra special. 

Everything Floral - I don’t think mum will ever be disappointed in a bunch of flowers. I know I’m definitely not, especially from these guys we love the range they have. Be sure to give them a call to pre order to avoid disappointment!

Opulence Hair -  head over to their Instagram to see their gift guide. They are doing some great packs so you can pick the one best suited for your mum, they even have a special on gift vouchers so say to say it’s something not to miss!

Gift Vouchers – even though a lot of places are closed you can still pop online to some of your favourite local shops to get mum a gift voucher that they can use later on in the year. If your mum is anything like mine, you can never have enough vouchers and she loves having a little stash that she can use at any time.

Lunch/Dinner – shouting mum to a delicious meal is a no brainer, and what is even better buying something from your local restaurant is that there are no dishes involved to be cleaned up. Below is a list of some of our favourite locals who are still open and serving some incredible meals.
