There’s no one quite like Mum.

Mums are there for us in our time of need, love us unconditionally, and are always there to lend a hand or grace us with some sage advice.

Whilst we may not all be able to see our mums on Mother’s Day this year, we can still show her how special she is by sending her a thoughtful gift. If you want to show your mum some love this Mother’s Day whilst still supporting Birmingham’s brilliant independent scene then look no further. We’ve done the hard work for you, so you don’t have to. Simply scroll down this list, pick the treat (or treats) that your mum will love the most, and show her how much she means to you.

We understand Mother’s Day can be a difficult topic, so feel free to skip this guide if it is too difficult for you. Or choose a special gift from the list to treat someone else in your life who has been there for you as a thoughtful surprise.

Please note: many of these gifts and ideas will be made in small batches due to the independent nature of the guide and therefore may sell out quickly. We suggest you order as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.


If your mum spends all year cooking for the family and you fancy treating her to a day off from the kitchen, or if your mum just loves all things foodie, we have some suggestions of the very best foodie packages to treat your mum this Mother’s Day.
