Local gifts your mum will love - blog
Mother's Day provides the perfect opportunity to show your mum how much she means to you. But how can you properly say "thank you" to the person who has loved and supported you your entire life?
At a time when you can't treat your mum to a meal out or a spa day, finding that perfect way to say thank you is even harder.
The good news is even though all non-essential retail is closed at the moment, you can still shop locally for some heartfelt gifts by using click and collect and delivery options. You won't only be showing your mum some love but your local traders too.
Here are some ideas and options.

Fancy afternoon tea with a twist? Evesham-based café Delicious have done a Mediterranean take on afternoon tea with their thyme and parmesan scones and brie and onion marmalade bruschetta. They will also be serving up their signature sausage rolls and a lemon meringue roulade. You can also add roses and a bottle of wine if you wish. To read the full menu, visit their Facebook page.

You can't go wrong with flowers, especially when they're from award-winning Bluebells Florist in Droitwich. They can deliver a beautiful variety of bouquets made up of roses, tulips and deliciosa. Bouquets start at £30. See their Mother's Day selection.
Spa day at home
After last year your mum most definitely deserves some pampering, so why not gift her a hamper full of self-care luxuries so she can have her very own spa day at home? Future Primitive Soap Co's bath salts and hand-made soap, paired with Inspire by Rachel Beauty Clinic's aromatherapy-based spa packs and Tonic's nail polish would make the perfect gift box. You could even add a candle from Persora of Pershore to create a relaxing atmosphere.
Of course, these are just a few things that our local shops and cafes have to offer. To see a list of businesses that offer click and collect or deliveries, visit our Keep It Local webpage.
