Mother’s Day ideas in Glasgow


Mother’s Day is on the horizon, and we know it can be hard to narrow down what gift or experience to get the mother figure in your life who deserves it all. Here’s our top picks for Mother’s Day ideas in Glasgow this year.

Indulge in some self-care

For some at-home self-care, head to Molton Brown to pick out her favourite scent. From coastal aromas to apricot and freesia, there’s something for every taste. Pick up a luxurious body wash or treat her to some aroma reeds so her home can smell beautiful every day.

Rituals has the perfect gift for new mothers, with the Tiny Rituals Gift Set body lotions, body and hair washes which are suitable for both mother and new baby. Or pick up a beautifully wrapped gift set including shower foam, a body scrub, and a candle so she can enjoy relaxing time to herself.

Enjoy a sweet treat

If you’re looking for an afternoon tea in Glasgow this Mother’s Day, look no further than Patisserie Valerie. Enjoy mini cakes, scones, cream, and jam all washed down with delicious loose-leaf tea. This is a great way to spend some time together and have a sophisticated day out.

If she has a sweet tooth, head to Heavenly Desserts and enjoy a milkshake, ice cream, or browse the extensive menu of cakes, tarts, and waffles – if you can think of a flavour, they’ll have it! This will be an afternoon out to savour for both of you.

If you’d rather take home something tasty and enjoy it together, the newly opened Batch’d is the place to find your delicious treats. Think loaded cookies, indulgent brownies, or unique cookie pies – this is the place to pick up a gift for a sweet tooth.

Take her on a shopping spree

For the lady who wants to shop ‘til she drops, buy her a Silverburn gift card and let her get exactly what she’s been eyeing up. From jewellery shops like Pandora and Swarovski to clothes from Next or Monsoon, and scents from The Perfume Shop and The Fragrance Shop, she can find the perfect items to complete her wardrobe, from £5 right up to £500.

And, if you want to make the most of your day out at Silverburn, why not take a look at what’s showing at Cineworld? Your mum might need an excuse to take a minute for herself, or maybe she’s been dying to catch the latest release – either way, why not treat her to a ticket and enjoy a film together?

Take in the local culture

For a day of art and culture, head over to Pollok Park and take a walk around the Burrell Collection, a museum featuring the art collection of Sir William Burrell and his wife, Lady Constance Burrell. The museum is free to enter and is full of paintings, sculptures, and much more. And there’s lots of interactive pieces and videos to keep any kids entertained on a family visit.

Once you’ve taken it all in, head outside into the fresh air and wander around Pollok Park. Can you spot the paintings hidden along the walks?

Find the perfect gift

If the mother figure in your life insists that she doesn’t need anything this Mother’s Day, why not go for the classic combination of a card and a bouquet of flowers? Card Factory has every kind of Mother’s Day card, from heartfelt to funny, for mums, grans and everything in between. Pair this with a beautiful bouquet from M&S and let your simple gesture brighten her day.

The White Company has the perfect luxurious gifts to show your appreciation, from bath robes to candles, decadent homeware for the ideal host, or maybe a new scarf or a set of silk pyjamas. And if the choice is too much for you, a Silverburn gift card will do the trick!

For the foodies, Thaikhun are offering 10% off their cooking school classes so you can treat your mum to a delicious 2-course Thai cooking class – book your voucher here. If your mum would rather sit back and enjoy someone else cooking for her for a change, book a table in advance for the 10th of March and enjoy a complimentary glass of fizz with your meal.
