Sunday 11th March is a time to celebrate and reward hardworking mums all over the UK.
We think a shopping trip to Chester is a relaxing way to spend the day with your mum – you can potter round the shops, catch up over a coffee and spend some quality time together.
Now, although we’re sure your mum will love whatever you get them this Mother’s Day, we have suggested a few items that we’ve found in Chester city centre that your mum is sure to love, love, love! You can take your mum on this shopping trip any day, but we’ve popped in the Sunday opening hours if you want to do it on Mothering Sunday
Start the day with coffee
If you’re looking for a coffee made with love, The Barista’s on Watergate street is the perfect place. This charming, independently owned coffee shop is run by Andy & Jaci Delooze who are passionate about providing a warm, welcoming atmosphere for all their customers. Their regulars love their coffee and one states it is ‘the best cappuccino I’ve ever had’ and that the hot chocolate is ‘the best money can buy‘.
Now, if mum wants to relax in a cosy atmosphere and enjoy a sweet treat, this is another great little coffee shop on Bridge Street. Their freshly baked cakes and muffins are to die for and they also serve healthy options for anyone on a health kick. If Italian coffee and handmade cakes in a warm, relaxing environment sounds like mum’s idea of the perfect Sunday morning then this is the place to go.
The lovely ladies at Laundry B tell us that layering is in this Spring!
One of their favourite looks is to add Knitwear from their brand ‘Made in Italy‘, which make all their items in the mills of Florence. Made with the very best Italian linen, cotton, wool & silks, ‘Made in Italy‘ has a reputation for being of excellent quality.
We’ve put up a picture of one of our favorite looks – The Scoopy Knit Magenta (also available in Latte, Khaki, Black, Light Grey, Dark Grey, Lime & Navy) for £35.00, which looks great over a classic white shirt.
Mum can complete the look with skinny jeans, wax pants or leather look pants. Just add boots, complete with a necklace and she’ll be good to go!
It’s bright red colour makes it a stylish accessory that will brighten up any outfit (although it can be purchased in black if preferred) and it’s currently on sale down from £54.95 to £41.95 (red colour only) .
Designed in a large style, this bag has a strap and press-stud fastening to keep it closed whilst you shop, plus it has large handles so you can carry it on your shoulder as well as by your side.
This bag comes with an internal zip pocket – to keep your valuables extra safe – as well as chic gold foil deboss branding at the front.
This Ladies’ Wool Felt Floppy Hat in Bronze from the Hat place is the perfect head wear for any stylish mum! It’s the ultimate Spring accessory that will finish off any outfit.
Made from 100% wool felt and finished with a decorative felt ribbon, this could be a gift that mum wears for years to come.
It’s priced at a very reasonable £20.00 and one size fits most.
If you’re looking to give your mum a gift that would make Meghan Markle envious, then look no further than Rigby Jewellers.
This Tree of Life® Heart Pendant from the Tree of Life® Clogau collection symbolises the relationship of all life on Earth.
A combination of berries, leaves and vines represent new life forms that intertwine and evolve from the old, creating ever more beautiful designs with an elegant and organic style.

After all that shopping, mum will need another drink!
