Gifts, ideas and pampering for Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is on Sunday 19th March so get inspired at Fort Kinnaird.
We've got everything you could possibly need to treat your mum (or grandma, step-mum, family friends) to flowers, jewellery, vouchers and gift sets to brunches, beauty pampers and family days out.
Flowers and chocolate

Pick up spring bouquets, selection boxes or afternoon tea from Marks & Spencer or Hotel Chocolat has created a beautifully wrapped Gin and Liqueurs mix, bottles of Prosecco and bright yellow tasting boxes for Mother’s Day.
Candles, perfumes and gift sets

There are gorgeous candles to be found at TK Maxx, Next and Superdrug while Boots has soothing scents, pampering skincare and aromatherapy diffusers. Plus, don’t miss The Perfume Shop for her signature scent.
Vouchers and experiences
Vouchers are also the perfect way to spoil her – just ask in store or treat her to pampering treats including manicures, pedicures and blow dries from Elegance or tickets to Odeon.
If she loves cooking, head to ProCook for kitchen finds or don’t miss Waterstones – buy her a gift card or pick up a book she’ll love (The Garnett Girls by Georgina Moore and Closer To Love by Vex King will hit the spot for Mother’s Day and are set to be huge for spring).
Independent stores Born In Scotland and The Leith Collective are also inspired places to find handmade, original and sustainable gifts that reflect her personality.
Brunches, lunches and evenings out

Go for Sunday lunch out at Tony Macaroni with their special two- and three-course menus of pizzas, pasta and ice-cream sundaes or enjoy Prosecco and pizza at PizzaExpress. Frankie & Benny’s is also great for wings, hot dogs and BBQ specials or book in for one of their classic breakfasts with eggs, pancakes and juices.
Fridays do a late night bottomless brunch (two hours of unlimited Prosecco, American Pilsner, less than 0.5% ABV CleanCo Gin & Tonic or orange juice) with burgers, fajitas and grills.
For a movie and dinner, Five Guys, Bread Meats Bread and wagamama make for perfect pitstops before heading to the Odeon.
Jewellery and fashion gifts

For an amazing watch, bracelet or a very on-trend chain necklace, head to Goldsmiths, H Samuel and Beaverbrooks. Pandora’s Mother’s Day range includes heart, engraved infinity charms (including one for ‘Nan’) and earrings. You’ll also find gorgeous keepsakes and thoughtful looks at Swarovski.
Tap into spring/summer 2023’s handbag trends with denim, texture, huge bucket designs and knotted pouches leading the way. Marks & Spencer, Next, H&M, New Look, Primark, River Island and TK Maxx have the latest designs in store.
For covetable gymwear and athleisure gifts, visit JD Sports and Marks & Spencer for their Goodmove collection.
