Mother’s Day is coming up at the end of the month (27th March), and we thought this would be a wonderful time for us to share some of our favourite gift ideas. Some Bristol-based, some not, but all in a bid to support small and sustainable businesses.
We are also aware that Mother’s Day can be a tricky time for a lot of people. We’re here. Perhaps you could treat yourself to a gift, or an important figure in your life.
Make them feel special with the gift of massage – The limited edition Double Indulgence massage from Relax & Be! With options of the Silver or Gold package. This special Mother’s Day massage will include their signature Bespoke full body massage coupled with a complementary soothing head or foot massage along with a mystery gift which will arrive by post shortly after their treatment. The perfect way to enjoy some time out, be present in the body and get rid of stress and tension, while also indulging in a well deserved treat.
Our specialty Double Indulgence Gift Vouchers can only be redeemed between March and till the end of April.
If you are reading this after their promotion has ended, then don’t worry! You can still purchase one of their ready-made gift vouchers which can be redeemed against any 60-minute treatment or as part payment for a 90-minute treatment. Or perhaps, gift the luxury of one of a Relax & Be massage membership.
We are big fans of Yuup. Yuup is all about supporting the communities that need us most. They are a platform that encourages diversity and creativity by hosting a variety of events, workshops and experiences throughout Bristol. They are a great place to look when thinking about gifting ideas. Treat your mum to a foraging and food experience, wine and cheese tasting, gin making, meditation classes and more! They even have the option of purchasing a gift card, allowing your mum or loved one to browse themselves and explore all the wonderful experiences Bristol has to offer.
Our friends over at Blue Labelle create the most wonderful gift sets and boxes with their products. Our favourite is the Time to Relax Gift Box and we think it is a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. Presented in a gorgeous card gift box filled with luxury crinkle cut paper, it comes with a bevvy of items to relax the mind and pamper the body. A hand-made Lavender eye pillow, Relax candle (Lavender & Lemon), luxury butter bath bomb (with Lavender), organic Geranium & Lavender soap, and a 10ml organic Lavender which can be used in a number of ways. We are feeling calm just thinking about it.
There have been a lot of studies into the power of scent and how different scents can trigger different memories and evoke intense feelings. Scents are able to bring about even greater emotions than images do. Perhaps it’s one of the reasons why scented candles are such a wonderful thing to have in our homes and spaces. We are big fans of Osmology candles who were founded in Bristol and believe beautifully fragranced interiors make life better. They have a whole host of different candles and scents to evoke a variety of emotions, and have even sectioned out a selection of candles perfect for Mother’s Day. They have gift sets and gift cards available as well. Perfect for any candle loving mothers.
