Liverpool shoppers set to shower their mums with £46.3 million in gifts, family meals and days out this Mother’s Day

Mums in Liverpool can expect to be treated this Mother’s Day as our new research shows the region will splash out a huge £46.3 on gifts, family meals and days out.

The survey found that Liverpudlians will spend a whopping £4.1m on pamper products, £3.9m on greetings cards and £1.5m on breakfast in bed.

Mothers in Liverpool do deserve a treat as over half of mums polled admit to having less than an hour’s ‘me time’ each day.

Traditional gifts such as greetings cards (60%), flowers (34%) and chocolates (22%) top the list of this year’s most popular Mother’s Day presents.

However, some Liverpudlian mums are hoping their children say ‘thank you’ in other ways, with a third (32%) wanting to unwrap their favourite perfume and one in ten hoping for a bottle of gin.

As well as receiving gifts, local mums want to spend quality time with their families this Mother’s Day – be it a lie-in with breakfast in bed (36%) or enjoying each other’s company at home (56%).

That said, nearly one in five (16%) Liverpool mums would prefer to spend the day doing something for themselves, and favourite ‘me time’ activities include bingeing on Netflix (38%), reading a book in peace (46%) and having coffee with friends (20%).

Karen Wild, centre manager at New Mersey, said: “Mother’s Day is one of the busiest times of year for us, with shoppers keen to show their mums some much-deserved appreciation. Our research shows just how important this is as lots of mums admit to having less than an hour for themselves each day.

“Traditional Mother’s Day gifts will always be popular, but this year we’ve also seen more people choosing ‘me time’ treats such as books from WHSmith and pamper products.”
