This must-have Manchester‘s little treasure is the perfect Mother’s Day gift

Manuka offers a personalised message service for those unable to see their mums this Mother’s Day

We might not be able to give our mums the huge hug we’re craving this Mother’s Day, but we still want to show how much we love them. Perhaps now more than ever.

If you’re still looking for the perfect gift, then look no further than Manuka’s beautiful bee inspired necklaces.

The Manchester based eco-friendly jewellery brand proved an immediate hit in the city when it launched in December 2019, selling out almost overnight.

That’s partly due to the eye-catching design, with the worker bee symbolising our city’s history and indomitable spirit. Together we are stronger.

Available in silver, gold and a gorgeous new rose gold, the delicate necklaces are guaranteed to attract compliments – the perfect gift for any queen bee out there, and the must-have accessory for 2021.

They’re a huge hit with local celebrities and with Faye Brookes, who’s on board as the Brand Ambassador.

But the brand’s beauty goes more than skin deep.

As well as a visual show of support and solidarity, every Manuka purchase actively helps increase the number and distribution of bumblebees.

That’s because the company, aiming to raise awareness of the importance of bees to our ecosystem, donates 10% of its profits to The Bumblebee Conservation Trust.

The ethical pendants are also made using recycled metals (925 sterling silver) and recycled and recyclable material for their branded presentation boxes, such is Manuka’s concern for the environment and planet.

And speaking of packaging, the box has been designed to fit directly through the letterbox, too, so it couldn’t be more convenient.

They ship worldwide, and Manuka’s bees have already made it as far afield as America, Australia, Spain and Dubai. 

If you can’t see your mum this Mother’s Day, they can even include a personalized message inside the box and send it directly, as they offer free standard UK delivery.

Standard UK delivery takes 2-4 days, or next day delivery is available at an additional cost. The last day for ordering to guarantee delivery in time for Mother’s Day is Wednesday 10th March.

What’s more, I Love MCR readers can get 20% off using the promo code ILOVEMCR20.

She might have to wait a little while longer for that hug, but your mum will be buzzing about the thoughtful gift.


Manchester is a successful city, but there are many people that suffer. The I Love MCR Foundation helps raise vital funds to help improve the lives and prospects of people and communities across Greater Manchester – and we can’t do it without your help. So please donate or fundraise what you can because investing in your local community to help it thrive can be a massively rewarding experience. Thank you in advance!
