Leicester is home to a thriving community of independent businesses offering a wide range of gift ideas. Whether your mum enjoys traditional presents or is more adventurous, we’ve got you covered with some fantastic options that will make her day truly special.

For the classic mum

There is no harm in going for a classic gift. Classic gifts become a tradition for a reason – they never fail to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

It wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without beautiful flowers! Grab a show stopping bouquet from Flowerworks on Loseby Lane. Their colourful and seasonal ranges will have you in the good books. If she is a green-fingered goddess, why not consider something that lasts longer? They have a great selection of houseplants, garden bulbs, lovely pots, and botanical goods.

Chocolates are another must-have gift for Mother’s Day! Leicester boasts one of the best independent chocolatiers in the country; Cocoa Amore on Silver Street. Treat your mum to a selection box or create a personalised chocolate bar with her favourite flavours and decorations. YUM!

If you really want to get one up on your siblings, then jewellery is the erect gift for Mothers Day. The city is home to a variety  of independent jewellers, such as Lumbers, Lanes Fine Jewellery, Petersons and Pragnell, where you can find beautiful pieces to suit every budget. Whether it’s a statement necklace or elegant earrings, you’ll find the perfect piece to make your mum feel special.

Gifts for the Mum that Needs a Pamper

Being a mum can be hard work, so why not pamper her with a relaxing experience on Mother’s Day?

Femi Health and Beauty is the perfect place to indulge her with a soothing treatment. With 12 relaxing treatment rooms, including a double treatment room for a joint experience, they offer everything from full body massages to salt scrubs and facials – ensuring she leaves feeling serene and rejuvenated.

For a bonding experience, enjoy a classic manicure or pedicure at The Guild Rooms on Guildhall Lane. This boutique champagne nail bar creates a social atmosphere where you can both get your nails done while sipping cocktails and enjoying quality time together.

If she prefers to unwind at home, consider creating a pamper package with ethically made toiletries from Just Fair Trade. They offer a range of luxurious soaps, shampoos, and conditioners made from natural ingredients, providing the perfect DIY self-care kit.

For Mums that are Foodies

If your mum is a foodie, Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to indulge her taste buds. For the breakfast lover head to Kai in St Martins Square, offering a variety of dishes, from eggs royale (our fave) to their famous stacks of sweet and savoury pancakes. Treat her to a morning coffee or a breakfast cocktail like a Bloody Mary for an extra special touch.

Or why not celebrate the occasion with brunch, the boozy kind, of course! Check out our blog on must-try bottomless brunches in the city centre.

For a mouthwatering Sunday feast, head to Wygston’s House, where you can savour Roast Sirloin, Cornfed Chicken, or Pork Belly with all the trimmings. They also offer veggie and vegan Wellington options, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Don’t forget to leave room for their delectable starters and desserts!

Maybe afternoon tea takes her fancy. We have a blog on the best spots to get tea for 2 in the city centre!

Many mums love gin, right? So to go nicely with those chocolates and flowers, pick up a special bottle for her from 23 Wine and Whiskey, where their friendly team can help you find the perfect selection.

For the alternative mum

For those mums who like something a little different, why not treat her to something that’ll suit her taste for something alternative and funky.

Auricle is Leicester’s newest luxury piercing studio and the perfect place to treat your mum to some new jewellery or even a piercing or two! You could even get matching ones!

For the crystal queens, treat your mum to a shopping spree at The Very Bazaar. Indulge in an array of incense and endless amounts of crystals. If this is her vibe then The Very bazaar is a must!
