With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start planning the best ways to treat Mum’s. We’ve put together a list of the best Cumbrian ways to celebrate – from weekend getaways to personalised pyjamas. 

Personalised PJ’s…

To celebrate Mothering Sunday, British sleepwear brand Look & Cover has created a special pyjama set with monogrammed ‘MUM’ or ‘MAM’ – the perfect gift for all mums! The Mother’s Day pj’s are made with beautiful European pure cotton fabric and come in either Dusk, Rose, Cloud, Midnight or Sage. The pyjamas epitomise classic tailoring with a preppy pj shirt and the choice of trousers and shorts to match along with a chic, light-weight robe. Each product is beautifully finished with simple white piped edging. In typical Look & Cover style, every item comes with an optional complimentary monogram of either ‘MUM’ of ‘MAM’ on the breast pocket of the shirt / robe and the cuff of the shorts / trousers. The monogram can also be personalised to any three letters of the customers choice for those that fancy initials. All monogramming is carefully embroidered at Look and Cover’s boutique studio in Cumbria. Women’s pieces are available in sizes small to extra large; pyjama tops are priced £45, shorts £30, trousers £35 and dressing robes £60. The brand also offers children’s sets of pyjama tops and shorts for £45. For more information visit www.lookandcover.co.uk
