Mum’s the word! Gift inspiration from Birmingham city centre

While we should appreciate our mums every day, Mother’s Day is a day where we spoil our mums for being the best and this year it falls on Sunday 11th March. And what better way to show your appreciation than giving her a thoughtful gift she will love.

We’ve collated some gift inspiration from the city centre that are guaranteed to bring a smile to her face, even the hardest to please mums.


Is your mum a star baker? This vintage porcelain muffin tray (£15) will make the perfect gift to showcase her best bakes in.


Now what mum doesn’t love a good natter over a cup of tea? Treat her to a limited edition Alice and Wonderland tea pot (£40), featuring the original illustrations of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party by Lewis Carroll. Make your gift even more personable by picking out her favourite teas to drink (£7). There’s also an offer in store if you spend £25*, you will receive a free gift box.

House of Fraser

Does she have green fingers? Bring the garden inside her home with this quirky terrarium kit (£30). The terrarium will look stunning on her window sill or shelf in her bedroom for that contemporary finish.

Molton Brown

Help your mum take some time out for herself with some luxury body oils from Molton Brown. This Orange and Bergamot scent is sure to awaken her scents and transport her to the sun-drenched streets of Seville, all without having to board a plane.

Discover the whole collection in store at Bullring.

L-R: £36 & £39

Gran Cafe 

Spend some quality time with mum and spoil her to a luxurious afternoon tea with an Italian twist at San Carlo’s Gran Cafe.  Enjoy a selection of hand crafted sweet and savoury treats including their famous pistachio mousse cake in miniature. Choose from your choice of teas (£19.95), glass of prosecco (£24.95) or glass of champagne (£29.95) to accompany your afternoon tea.

You can find Gran Cafe on the ground floor in Selfridges.
