Mother's Day in the UK is next weekend, Sunday 30th March. I visited Creative Gardens, Donaghadee for some gift inspiration. Why not visit this weekend and pick something up for your Mum, and enjoy a slice of giant lemon meringue in their award winning restaurant?
They have a wealth of ideal Mother's Day gift ideas at all price ranges, and even have a card & gift wrap section so you can get everything sorted in one stop.
Creative Gardens have another branch in Bushmills, and a newly opened centre in Galgorm. If you aren't from Northern Ireland, there is a selection of items in their online store to browse.
How about an orange tree instead of the traditional bunch of flowers?
Instead of a box of chocolates, you could choose one of the many vintage print tins and fill it with retro sweets, or baking supplies.
There are lots of savoury sauces, chutneys and relishes if your Mum isn't a sweet tooth.
Creative Gardens has a beautiful home ware department with literally dozens of possible presents.
Gorgeous wicker picnic set
They have an excellent selection of Cath Kidston bags and kitchen ware. If you're a bargain hunter like me, get across this weekend and catch the sale items.
Creative Gardens also stock local crafts, like this pretty patchwork from Made Pretty.
Of course it also had a huge garden section. Lots of spring bulbs and plants which would make a more lasting gift than a bunch of cut flowers.
What about a little birdhouse?
A very unique gift- a topiary frame. I actually bought a squirrel version from Creative Gardens for my Dad last Father's Day.
If you really can't decide, there are gift cards available. These can also be used for the 150 seat restaurant, which will be giving away complimentary tete-a-tete for all ladies who are in for lunch on Mother's Day.
