The Brent Cross Shopping Centre is opening a unique Human Gift Wrapping Service to make child’s play out of choosing a gift – themselves – in the lead up to Mother’s Day on Sunday.

The “ma-cel” service allows children and young people to visit the wrapping station in the centre and be personally gift-wrapped in an array of paper, ribbons, boxes and bows, ready to be delivered to their mums.

Tom Nathan, general manager of Brent Cross, said: “Brent Cross Shopping Centre is a popular destination for families and we know there’s nothing more important than spending quality time as a family.

“There is a wealth of gifts on offer for mum’s throughout the centre but we want to give mums something they really want this Mother’s Day. We can’t guarantee the kids will be on their best behaviour on the day, but we’re offering shoppers this unique service to deliver mum her perfect present.”
