Gifts, ideas and pampering for Mother’s Day 2023
Mother’s Day is on Sunday 19th March so be inspired at Meadowhall.
We’ve got everything you could possibly need to treat your mum (or grandma, step-mum, family friends) from flowers, jewellery, vouchers and gift sets to brunches and afternoon teas, beauty pampers and family days out.
Flowers, chocolate, candles and vouchers

For flowers and chocolate, pick up spring bouquets from Marks & Spencer or discover Lindt’s special Mother’s Day personalised Pick’n’Mix selections and hampers. Hotel Chocolat has created a beautifully wrapped Gin and Liqueurs mix, bottles of Prosecco and bright yellow Mother’s Day tasting boxes.
For luxurious Diptyque, Jo Malone and Le Labo candles head to Flannels or discover indulgent gift sets from the amazing Bath and Body Works at Next and Rituals. There are also gorgeous eco-candles candles to be found at independent stores including ColeyCoco and Curated Makers.
Vouchers are also the perfect way to spoil her – pick up a Meadowhall gift card from customer service desks and self-service kiosks – she’ll be able to use them in stores across Meadowhall as well as Vue cinema, cafes, restaurants and beauty spots.
Brunches, lunches, afternoon tea and evenings out

For a morning out, breakfast and brunch at Carluccio’s and Giraffe have menus filled with eggs, traditional breakfasts, granola and veggie options and free-flowing prosecco. For lunch, Sienna Kitchen & Bar has an eclectic menu of cocktails, grills and mussels puttanesca (they also have brunches and breakfast plates galore for earlier in the day).
Looking for an afternoon tea with an Italian twist? Caffe Massarella has a sharing menu for two with prosecco or tea and coffee plus a bruschetta selection, mini panettone scones, Italian pastries and panettone trifle – just book ahead. Caffe Rizzoli is another spot that’s perfect for glasses of fizz, pastries and a prosecco cream tea with scones, sandwiches and sweet treats.
Babysitter on duty? Head to Las Iguanas for a late night bottomless brunch (two hours of unlimited drinks and mains of tacos, chilli bowls and classic burgers) or wagamama is ideal for warming noodles and bao if you’re catching a film at Vue.
