Mother’s Day is fast approaching and is the perfect time to spoil your Mum and let her know how much you love her and appreciate all that she does for you.

Crieff has everything you need to make Mother’s day special, please support local businesses by shopping locally rather then online or in a supermarket.

Here are just 5 ways you could say thank you:

Treat her to lunch or afternoon tea

What could be better than giving your Mum a break from cooking by taking her out to lunch, dinner or even afternoon tea? There are so many brilliant dining options in Crieff to chose from with some local eateries including The Tower, The Meadow Inn and Crieff Golf Club putting on special Mother’s Day menus for the occasion. Yann’s and The Lounge are also opening their doors for lunch that day.

Buy her something special

We are fortunate to have so many independent shops selling unusual and unique gift ideas. At Home Gifts have a lovely new range of candles and diffusers by Stoneglow, CeeGees have a brilliant range of accessories to chose from, The Strathearn Gallery has unique jewellery and ceramics and Carnelian Crafts has a great range of fused glass items made by the talented Jane Drysdale.

Fabulous flowers

We have two fabulous independent florists in Crieff: Bluebells’ and Victoria Bloom, both of whom will be able to create a beautiful hand tied bouquet, basket or floral display for your Mum. You can go seasonal with a small bunch of Spring flowers, all out with some exotics, chose some unusual colour combinations or stick with her favourites, the choice is yours!

Sweet treats

You can’t really go wrong with some chocolates or sweeties as a gift for your Mum and again there’s plenty of places to buy these in Crieff. Gordon &Durward has a huge range of chocolates and sweets to chose from including their famous tablet. The Crieff Food Co has a wide range of chocolates including ones from Perthshire Chocolatier Charlotte Flower. Crunch Munch and McColl’s stock a wide range of familiar brands including Guerlain and Ferrero Rocher.

Pamper her

If you’d like to pamper your Mum a little there’s plenty of choice. You could treat her to a rejuvenating facial, a manicure or pedicure or a massage. Bella Beauté and Be Salon offer a wide range of beauty treatments to chose from. Alternatively, you could go for a luxury spa day at Knock Castle Hotel and Spa or Crieff Hydro.

For a wee treat, you could pop into Planet Soap who have a lovely range of handmade cold pressed olive oil soaps, bath bombs and candles.

If you still can’t decide what to give, then why not give her the perfect gift, the gift of choice, The Crieff Card.
