Mothers Day Independent Gift Guide

The Ultimate Gift Guide for Mothers Day


Mothers Day is approaching and it’s important to spend the time appreciating your Mother, parent or guardian, who most definitely deserve it. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be stressing about the perfect gift to buy them that truly shows how much you do appreciate them. But do not stress, were going to help you choose that ever so unique and personal gift from the Liverpool City Region’s best independent businesses, because independent business owners always do a happy dance when you buy from them.

IO Handcrafted Jewellery

One of our very talented resident jewellers Victor is the first on our gift list today. Victor uses his silversmithing skills to create beautifully bespoke jewellery pieces, with a wide range of products from necklaces to earrings, making it that ever so traditional gift for your mother.  Or if you think it’s a bit generic just buying your parent a piece of jewellery, Victor also runs introduction to jewellery classes where you can walk away with your own bespoke piece. His next class is Mother and Daughter Intro. to Jewellery: Matching Heart Pendant Necklaces, you can get tickets here:
