Student’s guide to Mothers day celebrations

Whether you’re living away from home or live in Liverpool with your parents, times like Mothers Day are always a drain on the budget. Luckily, your friends at Rooms4u have the perfect guide to get you through (and still leave your mum thinking they have the best son or daughter.)

When thinking cards and gifts, try to shop local. Voglio on Allerton Road is a firm favourite for gorgeous items and if you live around Sefton Park, head to Lark Lane. Larks is a great little boutique and the Arabesque Bazaar sells authentic Moroccan goods.

If you’re looking to eat out and have a strict budget, there’s a few places which we think would be perfect for your mum. Both Bistro Franc, located in Liverpool One and House on Bold Street have set menus which won’t break the bank and Pistachio on Lark Lane is offering a free glass of prosecco for every mum who dines. If you have student accommodation in the Smithdown Road area, Jalons have a set menu and you could always head down to Tribeca for an informal pizza!
