This year Mother's Day falls on the 14th of March, so if you haven't got that special lady a gift just yet, you'd better act fast! But what do you get the most influential woman in your life? Well if you're from Birmingham, I already know one thing you're definitely going to be hunting down this March - a "Mom" card. We don't do "Mum", "Mam" or "Mother" here!

A selection of cards are gifts from small Birmingham businesses

I'll also assume (because you're reading this gift guide) that you're a good Brummie who is looking to support some great Birmingham businesses this Mother's Day, so I'll try to help you out the best I can!

I've popped together a list of fantastic Birmingham independent's supplying all of the things your Mom could possibly want. From flowers arranged by born and bred Brummies to bevs brewed right here in the second city, I'd like to think I've got it all covered!

Oh and I've even tracked down a couple of Mom cards too! You're welcome!

Christmas, the most wonderful time of year and one of the most celebrated holidays on the calendar. Around 2 billion people celebrate Christmas each year so it's no surprise that the film industry capitalises on this and churns out tonnes of festive movies!
