Mother’s Day is nearly upon us and whether you’re shopping for your mum, grandma, auntie or loved one, now is the perfect time to celebrate the special ladies in your life.
If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect present to let them know exactly how wonderful they are, look no further. We’ve put together a fail-safe gift guide full of little luxuries, fabulous fashion and tempting treats all available from retailers at The Centre.
Flowers are always a popular choice for Mother’s Day but why not opt for ones that will stay pretty the whole year round with an artificial arrangement in a cute glass vase from TK Maxx, £14.99.
Appeal to your mum’s practical side by treating her to a stylish new rain jacket - we love Primark’s offering in pastel pink, £20, but they also have a similar, more lightweight, parkas in mint green and baby blue for just £9.
Wilko has a host of purse-friendly items that would make perfect Mother’s Day gifts – whether she’s a gardening goddess, a brilliant baker or simply deserves some pampering with beauty must-haves, you’ll find just the thing to spoil her. Why not opt for a cute ‘Mum’ mug for just £1.25?! Team it with her favourite hot chocolate for a gift that’s guaranteed to please.
If she’s a dedicated fashionista, nothing will please her more than a stylish new wardrobe update for SS18. H&M has some swoon-worthy shoes in stock including a fabulous pair of slip on satin loafers for £17.99. They also come in bright red, floral and powder pink suede which makes choosing just one pair a real challenge!
For a Mother’s Day treat that’s sure to bring a touch of luxury to her working lunch times why not choose an insulated lunch bag with gold coloured zip by Beau & Elliott, £20, from Debenhams. They also have a chic matching water bottle for just £9 ensuring that her al-desko lunch is second to none.
Statement earrings are huge this season and the perfect way for her to update her look for less. Accessorize has an array of earrings to suit all tastes – from elaborate tassels and mismatched earrings to funky feathers, cuffs and ear jackets. We love the Agne statement earrings - with slinky chain drops and cool stone crescents, they’re a must for any mum’s jewellery box. £15.
If you’re looking for a gift that’s personal and indulgent you could treat the special lady in your life to her signature scent or a fresh new fragrance. If she’s one in a million, opt for the ultra-feminine and glamorous, Lady Million by Paco Rabanne. Fresh top notes of bitter orange, fleshy raspberry and neroli, are followed by floral notes of orange blossom and Arabian jasmine and base notes of patchouli, honey and amber for a vibrant decadent scent. Argos, £58.
Give them the gift of time this Mother’s Day with a beautiful watch from Next, £25. The oversized dial in warm rose gold tones combines with a strap in elegant and versatile misty grey for a chic, contemporary timepiece.
If handbags are her weakness, combine style and practicality with a chic black cross body bag from River Island, £38. With faux suede detailing and gold toned hardware this is a bag that’s sure to be a wardrobe favourite. There’s plenty of storage inside and the shoulder strap makes it a winner for busy mums on the go!
Dressing down doesn’t have to be boring so if your mum’s idea of a cosy night in involves curling up on a sofa with a good book or binge-watching her favourite TV programme, let her relax in style with a playful (and comfy!) sweatshirt from Primark for just £8.
Summer might feel like light-years away but now’s the perfect time to treat her to a stylish new pair of sunglasses. The Centre has a host of on-trend offerings including vibrant tinted sunglasses in a rainbow of hues to match any outfit. New Look’s SS18 range includes classic aviators, chic cat eye sunglasses, mirrored sunglasses and bold geometric designs – our pick of the bunch is their black angular statement sunglasses, £7.99.
Add a touch of sparkle to her day with a gorgeous piece of jewellery from Beaverbrooks - from matching sets with pale pink gemstones to triple heart pendants. We love the sentiment behind the stunning infinity pendant necklace - designed in rose gold plated sterling silver and held on a delicate chain, this striking pendant showcases a modern swirl of both rose gold and glittering cubic zirconia. £125.
From stylish hats to funky bags, a well-chosen accessory is a gift that stands the test of time. For an opulent addition to your mum’s wardrobe, choose a luxurious silk scarf – perfect for dressing either up or down. Floral prints are a Spring favourite and M&S has a wide variety, from more contemporary designs to romantic painterly florals. £25
No-one deserves a little me-time more than mums and Lush has everything you need to ensure she’s feeling rested and pampered. Choose a selection of products to wrap up in one of their beautiful knot wraps or opt for a pre-packed gift box. For the ultimate indulgence choose the Relax More gift set – this super soothing selection packed with calming lavender contains fourteen items including Sleepy body lotion, Dream Time temple balm and The Comforter bubble bar. £69.95
Finally if you’re still not sure what to get why not give her the gift of choice this Mother’s Day with a Gift Card from The Centre? Available from £5 to £500, Gift Cards give her the chance to choose something really special for herself – they can be purchased from The Centre’s Information Desk or buy them online using the safe and secure gift card portal at https://thecentrelivingston.clevercardz.net/Shopping/BuyPosted
