Southwark shoppers set to spend £17.1 million on Mother’s Day

Southwark shoppers set to shower their mums with £17.1million in gifts, family meals and days out this Mother’s Day

Mums in Southwark can expect to be treated this Mother’s Day as new research shows the region will splash out a huge £17.1m on gifts, family meals and days out*.

A survey of over 2,000 people by British Land, owner of Surrey Quays Shopping Centre who is working in partnership with Southwark Council to develop plans for a new urban centre at Canada Water known as the Canada Water Masterplan, found that Southwark residents will spend a whopping £3.7m on greetings cards, £1m on breakfast in bed and £2.2m on pamper products.

Mothers in the region do deserve a treat as 40 percent of mums polled admit to having less than an hour’s ‘me time’ each day.

Traditional gifts such as greetings cards (63%), flowers (57%) and chocolates (33%) top the list of this year’s most popular Mother’s Day presents.

However, some Southwark mums are hoping their children say ‘thank you’ in other ways, with nearly a half (47%) wanting to unwrap their favourite perfume and one third hoping for a bottle of wine.

As well as receiving gifts, local mums want to spend quality time with their families this Mother’s Day – be it going out for a family lunch (40%) or enjoying each other’s company at home (60%).

That said, one in three (30%) Southwark mums would prefer to spend the day doing something for themselves, and favourite ‘me time’ activities include bingeing on Netflix (53%), enjoying a hot bath (33%) and reading a book in peace (20%).Ian Moore, centre manager at Surrey Quays, 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 and pamper products from Body Shop.”
