Spoil her this Mother’s Day with a one of a kind gift from one of our city’s lovely independent businesses. Peruse our gift guide and find inspiration for the perfect present – Mum deserves the best!
Gifts for the home
What could be a more perfect gift for the home then a wonderful piece of art? There are lots of Bristol Pound members to choose from including The Art Warehouse and The Village Pottery. We think art makes a great gift as it’s very personal and receiving a unique piece will no doubt make your mother feel very special.
We would also recommend the wonderful and vibrant Lunartique based in St Nicks Market. They create individually designed chandeliers, stained glass and mirrors all handcrafted. Lovely unusual pieces for the home-proud mum!
The perfect card
Find the perfect Mother’s Day card from unique local suppliers. We recommend Dandylion Jack who have a range of gorgeous designs and illustrations all printed on recycled paper. Also check out Room 212 on Gloucester Road, an Aladdin’s Cave of Bristol art and creativity with a reputation as the go-to place for original and interesting designs. Their card selection is perfect if you want to be extra sure yours will be more original than your siblings!
How about trying something a little bit outside the box? You could pay for a cooking class at The Cookery School Kitchen or a wine tasting class at Clifton Wine School. For an outdoorsy mum, why not treat her to a cycling tour around our lovely city from Cycle the City. Or for a health conscious mum who loves her veggies, why not order her a hearty veg box from Bristol Veg Boxes for all the veggie goodness delivered right to her door.
Give the gift of escapism with a great read. Our members include independent book suppliers such as Bookbarn, Arnolfini Bookshop and Hydra Bookshop. They all sale books you might not be able to find anywhere else. Perfect for your mother if she’s interested in delving into a new memoir, learning something new or escaping into a whole new world.
Health and beauty
Treat your mother to a relaxing and refreshing spa treatment or yoga class, or perhaps a massage or an aromatherapy session. £B members have many great pampering sessions and well-being classes to choose from, including from the lovely Bristol City Yoga Based in the heart of Stokes Croft – offering all different types of yoga and holistic treatments – and Hillside Massage – specialists in tension relieving massage.
With just over a week to go we hope we’ve given you some inspiration to get your Mother’s Day present all wrapped up! If you’re not quite sure, remember you can purchase beautiful Bristol Pounds from any of our cashpoints as a unique gift. Your mum will then be able to spend them in the businesses mentioned above and in over 550 other independent businesses across Bristol.
