It’s that time of year again, the time to show our mums – or mother figures – just how much they mean to us.

It could be with a meal, a day out or a gift she can treasure for the rest of her life, but it is important that you mark the occasion.

We have compiled a list of some of our favourite Scottish boutiques, cafés and independent businesses to give you some inspiration.

5 Scottish businesses set to make your mothers day oh, so special…

Nooks & Crannies

In appreciation of, and to honour, all mothers across the country this mothering Sunday, Nooks & Crannies Fraserburgh has created a very special afternoon tea menu and a hamper filled with delicious treats designed to pamper, indulge and spoil.

Relax and enjoy a blissful afternoon together with some fine food, including mini oatcakes, brie, mango and ginger chutney, delightful chocolate and raspberry trifles and mini Florentines dipped in milk chocolate.

And why not finish this off with some fizz and decadent chocolates?

Due to popular demand, the diaries for afternoon tea are full this year, but you can buy Nooks & Crannies’ Mother’s Day hampers for similar effects! The hampers are filled with homemade, indulgent treats and are priced at just £30.

Dean’s of Huntly

Dean’s of Huntly’s limited-edition mum’s afternoon tea hamper has everything you need for an extra special cuppa this Mother’s Day.

As the hamper includes Dean’s shortbread, which features all the flavours of a traditional afternoon tea, and a pack of Brodie’s afternoon teabags, all that’s left to do is boil the kettle and enjoy

And, if you can’t be with them this Mother’s Day, let Dean’s of Huntly send it straight to your mum’s door  door with a personalised card and gift message to really put a smile on her face.

Just make sure you order before midnight on 22 March to ensure it arrives by Mother’s Day.

Celina Rupp Jewellery

Celina Rupp’s passion for jewellery is inspired by the coasts, landscapes, history and heritage of Orkney, the place she calls home.

Having started her career in jewellery making when she left school, she launched her own self-titled business 14 years ago from her spare bedroom. Celina’s first collection featured Orkney’s beautiful and poignant Italian Chapel, built during the Second World War by Italian prisoners. The collection continues to be popular today.

Specialising in solid silver handcrafted pieces featuring semi-precious gemstones, her collections draw on everything from Norse and Celtic mythology and Viking traditions, to popular Scottish motifs like the Highland Cow.

The beguiling and dramatic seas and coastlines around Orkney are also an endless source of inspiration. All these influences help Celina to create timeless and unique pieces, which will be enjoyed for generations.

Celina Rupp Jewellery has expanded considerably since its humble beginnings, now occupying a popular gallery space and workshop in the parish of Holm, Orkney. She also sells her jewellery in other boutiques across Orkney and Scotland.

Her stepson Ryan has joined her growing team, helping to create and craft new collections.
