Loquet London necklaces

This year, the vaccine roll-out will mean we can finally plan to celebrate special occasions in person! However, those in the UK will celebrate Mother’s Day, which falls on March 14th, under lockdown restrictions. While some may want to wait until they can see their mum in person, it doesn’t mean you need to put it off! In fact, we think it’s about time to spoil the wonderful women in our lives. After the year we’ve all had, they definitely deserve it! To help you get inspired, we’ve put together four lockdown ideas to celebrate Mother’s Day in style.

Buy her something special

While this suggestion isn’t original, a little something sparkly is always a fantastic way to show your mum just how much she means to you. Astley Clarke make beautiful fine and demi-fine bracelets, earrings, rings and necklaces. Whether you’re looking for a matching pendant or signet ring for yourself and your mum, or want to engrave a necklace with her initials, the options in their collection are truly striking. Best of all? Astley Clarke is offering 20% off their jewellery, a discount you can redeem by emailing! [1]

If you’re looking for something completely customisable and bespoke, look no further then Loquet London. These incredible lockets are made with sapphire crystal and designed to hold exquisite charms, making them the perfect gift for your mum. Their extensive range of charms include dainty birthstones, star signs, flowers and animals, allowing you to create a gift that is completely her own. Loquet also have the option to design your own charm, a unique keepsake she is sure to cherish forever. Loquet is offering 10% off their collection for friends of Tiger Recruitment – simply email and cite ‘PA Collective’.

Organise brunch at home

There’s nothing better than a lazy Sunday-morning brunch. Luckily, the incredible minds at Breakfast En Bread have organised an amazing brunch home delivery service so we don’t have to go without while our favourite cafes are closed. They specialise in ‘loaded bread loaves’, and you can choose from some truly delicious options – from smoked salmon and egg to chorizo and chilli mushrooms. Organise two of these incredible loaves (with a coffee or a Bloody Mary on the side, if your mum prefers) and have them sent to both you and her on Sunday morning. Then, hop on Zoom and chat while you both enjoy the feast. It may not be your local spot, but it’ll do quite nicely.

Plan for a future trip together

While many of us are watching and waiting for the moment we can jet off for a foreign land, half the fun of a holiday is the planning. If you and your mum are geographically separated, why not take this as an opportunity to plan a future trip together? Untold Story Travel, can organise some truly incredible trips – whether it’s truffle-hunting in Northern Italy or island-hopping in the Aegean – this will be a trip your mum will never forget! To make it even more special, they’re offering a discount on the first booking, plus room upgrades and complimentary breakfast! Email and cite ‘Tiger Partnerships’ to redeem.

Go for a socially-distanced walk

Looking for something a little closer to home? If you’re lucky enough to have your mum within walking distance, take advantage and go for a socially-distanced walk on the day! Spring is well and truly on its way, so there’s no better time to shake off the winter cobwebs and take some time out to have a proper chat. If you’re in London, find a list of some fantastic walking routes here. You’ll both be happy to have spent the time together, and you’re exercising your right to, well, exercise during lockdown. Keep in mind – if you’re not in a bubble with your mum, it’s best to stay two metres apart.

We hope we’ve given you a little bit of inspiration to take advantage of Mother’s Day in lockdown. Hopefully, this will be the last we need to do while socially distanced, and we’ll be back in full force next year!
