Mother’s Day is this Sunday and whilst Marks & Spencer do some lovely flowers and cards, it’s always nice to show your mum how special she is with something unique and personal. Which is why the independent and diverse shops and businesses of Lewisham are the best place to get something a bit different for mum this year!
1. Flowers from Flowers by Tanya McKenna
Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a bunch of flowers. Flowers by Tanya McKenna in Deptford will create a beautiful, bespoke bouquet that will tell mum just how fab she is. They are closed on Sundays so you'll need to pop in earlier in the week before to make sure you're not caught out and having to make a trip to the local garage instead!
Flowers by Tanya Mckenna offer a 15% discount to Lewisham Card holders.
2. Gorgeous Cake from That Little Cake Place
That Little Cake Place, one of Catford's hidden gems, is a perfect place to pick up an indulgent slice of Victoria sponge or piece of coffee and walnut cake. They even do cakes to order if you want something a bit more special. Or why not take your mum in and treat her to lunch, coffee and cake? Go on, it’s only Mother’s Day once a year and Lewisham Card holders will get 15% off!
3. Massage from Wellness Rooms
For a really indulgent treat the Wellness Rooms in Honor Oak offer 10% off all massages to Lewisham Card holders. An even better treat would be booking both of you in – it just wouldn’t be fair to abandon mum for the afternoon now, would it?! Click here to see the wide range of massages that they offer.
4. Sweets from Sugar Mountain
Is your mum a total sweetie? Then get down to Forest Hill's acclaimed sweet shop and ice cream parlour, Sugar Mountain where Lewisham Card holders get a brilliant 20% discount. There are over 75 sweets to choose from, ideal for creating a gift bag full of traditional treats that will transport your mum back to her youth.
5. Personalised screen prints from Hazel Nicholls
For something a little bit different have a look at what unique local artist Hazel Nicholls has to offer in the way of screen printing and punnery.
