With its changing date, Mother’s Day has a habit of creeping up on the unsuspecting son or daughter.
This year, the special day falls on Sunday March 22 and if you’re still searching for the perfect present for the most important woman in your life, look no further, because Aberdeen’s Bon Accord is all about celebrating mums, grans and other mother figures.
And since the popular shopping centre has a number of card shops, jewellers, beauty and fashion stores all under one roof, you’re guaranteed to find lots of beautiful goodies to put in your mum’s gift bag.
If she likes to dress up, treat her to a chic leather-look vegan tote bag from New Look, or help her make a stylish fashion statement with a stunning double-breasted trench coat from Marks & Spencer.
You could also add a bit of sparkle to her outfit with a diamante embellished rose gold watch from River Island. Or, you could go for an elegant Tamsin necklace from Hobbs, which looks very luxurious and won’t break the bank.
If your mum loves nothing more than cosying up by the fireplace, she’ll probably appreciate a comfortable pair of UGG slippers from Kurt Geiger.
A Pashmina scarf from Jigsaw, which never goes out of style, would also make a great present, and if you’re looking for the ultimate beauty gift, then we recommend purchasing the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer which comes with a smoothing nozzle, styling concentrator, diffuser, non-slip heat proof mat and storage hanger. With its control heat distribution, it will reduce damage to her hair and protect it at the same time.
If she likes smelly stuff, pay a visit to Jo Malone, The Perfume Shop or The Body Shop to pick up one of their popular perfumes or beauty sets. We especially like the warm and vibrant scent of Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Daze, which you can buy in The Perfume Shop, and the deluxe Black Musk collection from The Body Shop has its charm, too.
You could also pop in to the Yankee Candle store because you simply cannot go wrong with a scent which is based on an intoxicating English garden of fragrant roses.
Delicate and floral, Chase Pink Elderflower Gin from John Lewis would also make a great present.
But if you’re still not sure what to buy the woman who already has everything, the Bon Accord gift card may be your best bet, as it will give your mum the chance to select the perfect gift for herself.
