Thanks to everything from home-schooling to homeworking, this past year has been especially tough on many mums.
So this year, the Great Northern has everything you need to make Mother’s Day extra special.
From a Spanish feast to a mouth-watering afternoon tea bundle – both delivered straight to her door – the Great Northern Warehouse has lots on offer so you can treat her in style.
Afternoon tea basket
Alex’s Bakery is spreading the love with a delectable afternoon tea basket which can be collected or delivered locally.
With a selection of tasty sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, brownies, blondies, quiche Lorraine and that all-important cup of tea all for just £29.90, it’s a real feast and guaranteed to impress on her special day.
Spanish feast with wine
Transport mum to sun-drenched Spain with Evuna’s heat-to-eat ‘Evuna at Home’ meal box experience available for collection.
Evuna has hand-picked a selection of favourite Spanish dishes for the feast, with plenty of veggie options including a delicious paella.
When it comes to wine, Evuna’s ‘Mother’s Day Trio’ features three brilliant bottles including the award-winning Navaren Cava. The trio is currently on offer for the special price of £35.
Finally, as an extra special treat, Evuna is adding an extra £5 onto any gift cards purchased with £35 or more on. Perfect for when restaurants open up again.
Nothing quite says ‘I love you’ like Manchester’s most luxurious and indulgent chocolatiers, Dormouse Chocolates.
The Anatomical Heart chocolate is a unique gift she’ll simply love, cast in a selection of bean to bar chocolate origins and dusted with an edible shimmer.
Or for a present that will last, grab her a Podmouse Pin. The small enamel pin badge with a glitter finish will give your mum 10% off all purchases when wearing in the shop, and she will also receive a discount code valid for one year online.
Mums definitely deserve some time for self-care and a break away from the mayhem. So The Life Centre are offering a whole month of unlimited virtual yoga for £39, or a one-off drop-in session for only £5.
Top deli delights
3Hands Deli is the tastiest deli in town and the perfect place to buy delicious, fresh produce in preparation for the big day (not to mention grabbing yourself one of its famous toasties whilst you’re there!).
With its incredible sourdough, amazing cheeses and a great selection of pickles, ferments and home-baked goods, you can’t go wrong this Mother’s Day.
A gift with heart
For every Mancunian mum there’s a perfect Mother’s Day gift from local charity, Forever Manchester. With a full range dedicated to all things Manchester and all proceeds going to support local communities across Greater Manchester, what more could mum want?
There’s a wonderful selection of gifts to choose from including a unique collection of 11 iconic designs of landmarks, buildings and spaces across Manchester, including Northern Quarter, Fallowfield and Hacienda.
Why not also grab the Great Northerners Postcard collection (£14 for 14) by Stanley Chow featuring a range of Manchester icons, all voted for by Great Northern Warehouse visitors, including Liam Gallagher, Caroline Aherne, Tony Wilson, Alan Turing, Emmeline Pankhurst and more. All profits go to Forever Manchester.
The wonderful portraits also form a permanent exhibition at the Great Northern Warehouse.
Spoil mum with a £25 gift card for Polish eatery Platzki’s, which she can enjoy now with collection or just save until restrictions are lifted.
She can choose from a range of tasty treats including a mouth-watering Polish baked cheesecake to the sweet pierogi, Polish dumplings filled with cottage cheese and blueberries topped with butter and village sugar – both superb as desserts and available for collection.
