With Mother’s Day fast approaching, we are here to offer you some inspiration for wonderful presents for the mother figure in your life.
Whether she’s into gardening, fashion and beauty, interiors or sporting endeavours, or if she would just appreciate a lovely card, candle and some flowers, Newnham Court Shopping Village has everything you need to make sure your mum feels appreciated this Mother’s Day.
As ever, Notcutts is the place to go for all gift ideas for gardening loving mums (and anyone else for that matter!). With spring around the corner (once we get this arctic blast out of the way!) there is lots to be getting on with, and Notcutts is bursting with everything from tools and equipment to pot plants and seeds, pots and containers, garden ornaments, benches and statues, as well as easy to manage plug plants ready to make beautiful hanging baskets for Spring colour.
Notcutts is known for its roses, so if you’re looking for something extra special, there’s a huge variety, including some very aptly named ones for Mother’s Day, such as Mattocks roses: You're Beautiful, Mum In A Million and For You With Love.
If your mum needs a bit of relaxation and pampering, why not book her in for a well-deserved manicure, pedicure, rejuvenating facial or relaxing massage at Pure Beauty?
You could even join her and enjoy the experience together.
Pure Hair also has a wide range of services from cut and blow dry to colour and lots of amazing treatments, and both Pure Beauty and Pure Hair also have gift vouchers available in any chosen amount, so you can let your mum decide what she wants to enjoy in her own time.
Spring is a great time to do a bit of a wardrobe overhaul, so how about spending time with mum over the coming weeks and treating her to some pieces to brighten up her wardrobe for the coming season?
There are bound to be some beautiful clothes and accessories to her taste in Edinburgh Woollen Mill or Klass – whether it’s something super casual or something special, and Pavers has a huge selection of shoes and boots designed to both look great and be comfortable for all feet.
Some mums love nothing more than getting outdoors into the countryside for some healthy “me time”. Our friends at Cotswold Outdoors will be able to help you choose something great for your active mum; whether that’s clothing or camping equipment, walking boots, trainers or Nordic sticks or some camping equipment for her next trip – with or without the family…
If your mum is a pavement pounder, is taking part in fun runs this year or maybe even some more seriously running events, Runners Need has all she could wish for in active wear, running shoes and accessories. You can even book her in for a free gait analysis to make sure her new running shoes are the best fit for her feet and running style.
If you’re doing a lovely family Sunday lunch for Mother’s Day, don’t forget we are very fortunate to have the Butcher of Brogdale at Newnham Court Shopping Village. They have a great selection of top-quality meats for you to choose from and can give you great advice on cuts, quantities and cooking times to make sure your Mothering Sunday meal is just perfect.
The Butcher will even prepare a selection of meats for different dishes that you can use to stock up your mum’s fridge or freezer for the coming weeks.
Notcutts Gift Shop is an absolute treasure trove when it comes to providing you with gift ideas.
There are gorgeous interior and homewares products, such as cosy blankets, beautiful silk flowers, indoor plants, scented candles and diffusers, embroidered cushions and amazing throws made from 100% recycled materials, pictures and photo frames, as well as luxury food and drink hampers and a huge selection of cards and gift wrap to choose from. It’s impossible to leave there without a great present that your mum will love!
Don’t forget too that Notcutts also has a privilege card, and if you sign her up, your mum can enjoy 10% off of everything for a year, plus lots of other member benefits.
After all the above, if you’re still stuck for ideas, just let mum choose! There are Gift Vouchers available from most stores.
The best gift is always time and spending some quality time with mum, chatting over great coffee or tea and a delicious slice of cake or other sweet treat in a cosy setting is always hugely appreciated. So, once you’ve had a wander around Notcutts and our shops, sit down, relax and enjoy some quality time at Bricks Coffee House or Coffee Corner.
The main shopping village is open on Mother’s Day 10.30am to 4.30pm (individual shops may vary). With plenty of easy and accessible parking and shops on one level, together with our Shopmobility scheme for the less mobile, we have everything you need to make sure you, your mum and the rest of your family can enjoy a lovely day out with us.
