Shop Local To Manchester This Mother’s Day

With one week to go, we are writing this as a reminder that despite being under lockdown, Mother’s Day is still on the horizon.

Now most of us, if we could financially, would give our mothers the world. Sadly, most of us usually settle for Yankee Candles because our mums are usually modest enough to understand that money can run tight.

This year however, Mother’s Day will still be in a lockdown. Until 29th March 2021 comes around, where we can hopefully see our mothers, the least we can do is spoil them as they deserve.

We’ve got you covered – here are our recommendations for presents and cards. Some of these places have been featured in our previous Shop Local Saturday series, but they will have something thoughtful, unique and truly special for all kinds of mums. 

Without any further ado, let’s get into our local recommendations for celebrating the ultimate Queen in your life.



No, not that one…
