Mother's Day may be a little different this year, but there are still so many ways you can show mum, or that special figure in your life how much you care.
Spring is on its way and there's hope that the town centre can welcome visitors again soon. But even whilst non-essential shops in the town centre are closed there are still some great ways of shopping local and supporting your highstreet. Lots of independent and local shops are offering click and collect or have dedicated websites you can browse for the perfect gift.
Afternoon Tea with Tymperleys
The wonderful team at Tymperleys have opened up for orders of takeaway afternoon tea. All handmade at Tymperleys with a range of dietary options, you can indulge mum (and yourself!) with a delicious afternoon tea for two. Or if you would rather wait to dine in, you could pick up one of their afternoon tea gift cards.

Delightful fashion at Belle Love
Whatever mum likes, you're bound to find a unique and thoughtful gift at Belle Love. From fashion-forward scarfs to trendy dungarees, Belle Love has a plethora of beautiful items for you to shop on their website! They're also offering quick shipping, great for those more last-minute shoppers. If mum has a more specific taste or you're spoilt for choice, you can also pick up a gift card so she can get what she really wants.

Maybe this year you would like to treat mum to a deeply meaningful gift. The Original Artshop is happy to help you with all your needs. Maybe you'd like to commission a special piece or frame your favourite memory. The Original Art Shop has over 30 years of experience to help you make that thoughtful gift extra special. And guess what, gift cards are also available!
Home decor they'll love
Annabelle, one of Colchester's much-loved indies have a great variety of gifts mum is bound to adore. From gorgeous blankets to stunning necklaces Annabelle stock a great range of gifts and clothing. Take a look at their website to browse their collection. Again, if you feel too spoilt for choice why not let mum pick with an Annabelle gift card also available on their website.
NOT the usual flowers
Instead of grabbing those usual supermarket flowers like everyone else, why not head to Dillys for something really special. Based in the town centre Dillys creates beautiful bouquets that help you show how much you care. With local, and same-day delivery Dillys is a great choice for mothers day.
We hope that we've made shopping local and treating mum that little bit easier this year. The main take away? If in doubt, grab a gift card! With warmer weather on its way keep an eye on the In Colchester blog for spring activities and more.
