The past year has, thanks to everything from home-schooling to homeworking, been tough on many mums, so this year, the Great Northern has everything you need to make Mother’s Day even more extra special.

From a Spanish feast to a mouth-watering Afternoon Tea bundle - both delivered straight to her doorstop – the Great Northern Warehouse has lots on offer to inspire your homage to Mum.


Let mum indulge in a selection of sweet treats from Alex’s Bakery. For Mother’s Day the bakery, thanks to its home to mouth-watering brownie boxes, is spreading the love with a delectable afternoon tea basket which can be collected or delivered locally. 

With a selection of tasty sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, brownies, blondies, quiche Lorraine and that all-important cup of tea all for just £29.90, it’s a real feast and guaranteed to impress on her special day.


Transport mum to sun-drenched Spain with Evuna’s heat-to-eat, ‘Evuna at Home’ meal box experience.

Evuna has hand-picked a selection of its favourite Spanish dishes to feature on the collectable feast, with plenty of veggie options including a delicious paella packed with a mixture of tasty vegetables.

Don’t forget the booze on mum’s special day! Evuna has a fantastic ‘Mother’s Day Trio’ deal to help her celebrate in style which features three bottles of fizz including the award-winning Navaren Cava. The trio is currently on offer for £35.00 – saving you £4.50 from the original price of £39.50.

Finally, as an extra special treat this year, Evuna is adding an extra £5 onto any gift cards purchased with £35 or more on! Perfect for when restaurants open up again


Let’s face it, nothing quite says, ‘I love you’ like Manchester’s most luxurious and indulgent Chocolatier’s Dormouse Chocolates. Your Mum will be in Chocolate heaven with an award-winning range that makes a perfect gift, she might even share! 

The Anatomical Heart chocolate is a unique gift she’ll simply love. Cast in a selection of our bean to bar chocolate origins and dusted with an edible shimmer. For a present that will last, grab her a Podmouse Pin. The small enamel pin badge with a glitter finish, will give mum 10% off all purchases when wearing in the shop, she will also receive a discount code valid for 1 year online.


Mums definitely deserve some time for self-care and a break away from the mayhem. The perfect gift this Mother’s Day is brought to you by The Life Centre who are offering a whole month of unlimited virtual yoga for £39, or treat to her a one-off drop-in session for only £5.

3Hands Deli

The tastiest deli in town and the perfect place to buy delicious, fresh produce in preparation for the big day (not to mention grabbing yourself one of its famous toasties whilst you’re there!).

With the incredible sourdough, amazing cheeses and a great selection of pickles, ferments and home-baked goods, you can’t go wrong this Mother’s Day.

Forever Manchester

For every Mancunian mum there’s a perfect Mother’s Day gift from local charity, Forever Manchester. With a full range dedicated to all things Manchester and all proceeds going to support local communities across Greater Manchester, what more could mum want?

There’s a wonderful selection of gifts to choose from including a unique collection of 11 iconic designs of landmarks, buildings and spaces across Manchester, including Northern Quarter, Fallowfield and Hacienda.
