Unique Cheshire Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day 2021


Mother’s Day is the 14th of March this year and is a great opportunity to spoil all those mother-figures in your life; not just your own Mum, maybe a close family friend, an Aunty, a best friend that has helped you out over the last year, Godmother or someone that provides childcare for you. Also, not forgetting, it is the time to start hinting to your other half, or your older children, that you yourself should be spoilt a little bit too!

Now more than ever, it is important to shop small and local where we can, by supporting amazing Cheshire business that are creating, making, and baking wonderful gifts we know where our hard-earned money is going. In a tough economic climate, with many small businesses struggling to stay afloat and compete with the online giants, it is a much more responsible way to shop this Mother’s Day and always.

I have listed below some fantastic Cheshire based small businesses, many I have used myself or come highly recommended. There are a mixture of food related gifts, homeware and experiences that appeal to all budgets. Shopping small does not necessarily have to cost you more, many of the gifts below start from £3-4 pounds and can be personalised and made unique to you and the recipient. The benefits of working with artisan crafters is that your order can be completely bespoke, not only to your budget but also to your requirements.

Please make note of final order dates; the afternoon tea boxes will sell quickly and any gifts that require personalisation will come with a longer lead time. With just under a month until Mother’s Day, I urge you to get shopping small and local as soon as you can. To support these small businesses, make sure you tag them in any of your social media posts, leave a review where possible and share your positive experience with others.

Here is my round up of some incredible and unique Cheshire gift ideas for Mother’s Day 2021:
