Find the Perfect Mother's Day Gifts at Silverlink Shopping Park

This is a paid advertisement collaboration with Silverlink Shopping Centre 

With only a few shopping weeks left until Mother's Day the race is on to find the perfect gifts for the most important woman in your life and this year Silverlink Shopping Park have challenged me to find the perfect Mother's Day Gifts from one of the stores on their park.

Between you and me this really isn't a challenge! You see Simon and I spend a huge amount of our time at Silverlink. As huge movie buffs we've spent many an hour at the Odeon on the park which is usually followed by a cheeky Nandos and a good few hours pottering around the shops. It's one of our favourite places in the North East to go shopping because there's loads of free parking, all the shops we love are in one place and it takes a lot of the hassle out of traipsing into the city when we want a relaxing day of shopping.

There are over 20 stores on the Siverlink Shopping Park including my favourites River Island, M&S, New Look, Next H&M and Outfit and "somewhere for Simon to hide" (if I ever lose him in Silverlink he can always be found in Currys PC World mooning over the giant TVs!). With so many great shops in one place it was a great spot for us to find Mother's Day gifts and with mine and his to buy for we had plenty of work to do.

There were a couple of shops on the Silverlink Shopping Park that I had in mind to find the perfect Mother's Day and we began our trip with a visit to Boots, always my go to when I want to find lovely gift sets, perfume or fancy bubble baths.

We found a stand of Mother's Day inspired gift sets a few steps from the door and almost picked up the Joules Scarf Gift Set, a rather lovely collection of bath and body products along with a beautiful print scarf. We couldn't quite agree on that though so decided to move across the park to M&S which has never failed us when it comes to shopping for the Mums.

I LOVE M&S for gift shopping, they always have such a huge range of goodies that make perfect gifts - fantastic clothes and shoes (if you're confident enough to buy something for your Mum's wardrobe!) as well as candles, scarves and jewellery. They really have never let us down.

Mother's Day gift buying in the M&S in Silverlink is fool proof.  Making our way upstairs we found a Mother's Day Edit laid out next to the cafe and in all honesty the work had more or less been done for us with so many lovely gifts all set out, I would happily have purchased any of them. I was particularly smitten with a yellow bag and bright coloured scarf combo and almost bought them but we couldn't quite decide if this was the right choice.

We spent a while mooching round the candles (M&S do deliciously scented three wick candles!), I got very distracted by some Lobster Pyjamas (before Simon helpfully reminded me that we weren't shopping for me) before picking up some Mother's Day cards and hunting through the bottles of gin and wine in the Food Hall (both Mum's love a bottle shaped present!)

After all that shopping time you're probably wondering what we got them? Unfortunately we can't tell you quite yet as both Mums read this blog and we don't want to be ruining any surprises (Hi Mum!) - we can't wait to share our gifts with them both later in the month and hopefully this has given you a little bit of inspiration to find your own perfect Mother's Day Gifts.

I'd love to hear if you have any great ideas for your Mother's Day Gifts this year!

  1. I normally stick to flowers which is a little boring perhaps!

    Back in the day, Silverlink was very different and didn't really have anywhere you could buy a gift from - it was all DIY stores and carpet shops! It has certainly come a long way over the last few decades.

    When Steve and I didn't have any kids, I used to visit Outfit every Saturday morning for new 'going out' clothes for the weekend. Ah those were the days!! Then when the kids were little I used to live in Mothercare and Boots.

    On the day of Harry's induction (when I was 43 weeks pregnant!!) we visited Silverlink in the morning for a browse and an epic hot chocolate in borders (RIP) so it will always hold a special place in my heart.

    We never really go anymore - not sure why?

  2. Well, Chloe, I read all the way through hoping to find out what magnificent gift was coming my way. Sadly, I'm still none the wiser...
