Make this Mother’s Day one that celebrates Mother Earth too!

Mother’s Day is an opportunity to show the important women in your life some extra love and affection. This maybe includes a gift or two for your own mum. But not any old gift will do – this year you can look after your own mum and the planet too.

So if you’re looking for gifts that will be appreciated by your mums, while at the same time being kind to the planet. Here are some ideas for you to contemplate!

Tickets to a local event…

Check out what’s going on in your community and see if you can support your local arts, crafts, food, music, sports and games scene, by purchasing a ticket to an event! From concerts, to wine tastings, to art or fashion shows and football games – you can spend time creating memories to savour. The Events and Experiences section on ShopAppy will highlight some local events to consider – why not try a show at Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage, a chocolate tasting with Chocolates and Truffles in Skipton or a more savoury Tapas taster evening held regularly in Baildon by Jonathan’s Field to Fork

A special treat of time together…

Spending time together does not have to cost the earth. Why not get a mother’s day treat at a local independent restaurant or café – Afternoon Tea at the Market Cross in Swaffham, a jazz evening at On The Green in Stevenage, afternoon tea selections at the Courtyard Tea Room in Attleborough, tea and cake at Just by the bridge in Skipton and a browse through their awesome garden, food and homeware collections. For those of you in Morley, why not browse the hundreds of perfect gifts Cadeaux have for sale, here.

Why not spend a day in crafting? There are some fab shops that sell craft materials– here are a few of our favourites…Aldridge Crafts and Champagne Moments  in Attleborough, Sew New in Northallerton…

Or for hand-crafted items without the making bit … in particular jewellery which will wow your mum and give her a piece to treasure –  try Sena Silver Jewellers or Hootie Toot Jewellery in Stevenage, pop in to see Adamskee Jewellers in Great Yarmouth Market or Kingston Jewellers in Barnsley to name a few…

For those that enjoy a tipple…

If your mum happens to like to indulge in a nice bottle of red or white, a lovely gin or even some bubbles, now is the time to splurge on a nice wine. We recommend the following, which you can purchase on Shopappy for click and collect, meaning less packaging and congestion on the roads. Why not peruse the selection at Taylors of Tickhill or get a hand-picked selection or have a peruse at VSQ in Skipton – a bottle of Boodles might go down nicely …

Pamper worthy products…

Mums tend to not make much time for themselves so maybe the 31st March can bring on some well-deserved pampering. Shopappy has a great selection of unique products –  beauty products to indulge body and soul can be found at Bathtime Heaven in Barnsley, Aura at Westgate or Portside Soap Company in Stevenage

If she loves a curry, or a themed night-in – how about Curry with Love in Swaffham or the Yorkshire Tea Experience – a wonderful package of local treats to collect from Keelham Farm Shop in Skipton or how about some beautifully fair trade items of clothing from From the Source in Skipton – here’s out top pick for a gift available in a lovely range of colours for a mum that is a fair-trade warrior – this gorgeous shoulder bag

A voucher to shop local

We are sure you are well aware that shopping locally helps the environment (and the local community). A gift voucher for ShopAppy provides you a perfect opportunity to treat your mum, and help their corner of the world at the same time. A gift that gives you convenience with a local conscience and a chance for your mum to choose exactly what she wants too. A win, win, win….Win.

We hope this little guide has given you some fun ideas to show your mum you care about her as well as where she lives and the planet on 31st March.

Have a ShopAppy Mother’s Day.
