MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

Mother’s Day is right around the corner – Sunday 11th March, for those of you who have forgotten! You’d best hurry and go and get your gifts. If you’re like me, then you’re most probably the worst at buying gifts. What do you buy someone who has everything? I guess you just have to wing it and try to put your own thoughtful spin on it.

Some of the following items can be quite pricey but some of them are definitely worth it. On the other hand, a few of these gifts are quite cheap and cheerful – It’s all about the thought.

Gift giving can be hard depending on the person. Personally, I find my mum super hard to buy for. Not because she has everything but because she can be VERY picky. Which is why I always tend to steer away from clothes and home accessories.

Here are some gifts that I believe are perfect for Mother’s Day –

An Experience Day / Day Out

Who doesn’t love to get out of the house and do something fun? I’m sure when most people think of experience days, immediately crazy activities such as skydiving and race track driving come to mind; yet there are always other options such as afternoon tea or a spa getaway. If you have a little more money to spend, maybe a little city break could be a possibility.

Personalised Gifts

One thing I know for sure is that my mum absolutely adores anything personalised that I get her. I often get her gifts with my nieces’ names/pictures on them because she loves them. It can be quite a simple gift but can be super meaningful, which is sometimes the best. Key-rings, Picture Frames, Phone Cases and Glasses are just very few of the unlimited possibilities.

Jewellery / Watches

Jewellery is always a great gift if you know the recipients taste well. From personal experience charms and charm bracelets are always a hit. If your mum has a charm bracelet, try finding a mother’s day related charm. If she doesn’t have a bracelet, then there’s another option! Watches seem to be quite a popular gift too, yet they can be quite pricey! I was recently lucky enough to have been gifted a watch from ADEXE; they have some stunning watches! If you are looking to spend a bit of money but don’t have enough for a full-blown luxury watch, then these are the perfect alternatives. Luxury but still affordable. Most Watches are priced between £95 and £149.

The watch pictured is the ‘THEY – Grande Silver & Blue’ –  which can be found here.

Candles / Wax Melts

Anything that makes the house smell nice, my mum is immediately obsessed with, especially because we own 3 dogs. Candles are a win EVERY time. My mum has never not been happy with a good old candle. Yankee Candles, Jo Malone and Diptyque are just a few of the best luxury candle brands out there. Yankee Candles are my personal fave as they last for ages! 100% recommend. Wax Melts and a burner is a good choice too.

Fitbit / Sports Accessories

If your mum doesn’t have some weird obsession with fitness and eating healthy, then is she even human? All mothers I have come across, whether it being my own or my friends, have some kind of fitness obsession. This is why a Fitbit would be a great gift. Even items such as gym shoes or gym equipment could be a good idea.

Pyjamas / Cosy Wear

You can never go wrong with a pair of PJ’s. Who doesn’t love new pyjamas? You could even include things such as a blanket, a mug, a movie and some hot chocolate pouches to make it the perfect ‘cosy’ bundle. Just make sure you buy the right size! Lounge wear and slippers too, anything cosy that will allow your mum to take a well deserved relaxed Mother’s Day evening.

New Tech

Another pricey one but can be such a great gift. I know personally, my mum has been dying for an iPad that she can play her pointless games on and aimlessly scroll on Facebook. If it’s what they want then I’m sure that they would 100% be over the moon if you got them it.

Flowers & Chocolates

Personally, I buy these as an addition to my main gift just to add a little something extra. You don’t have to buy the most luxurious flowers in the world. I’m sure your mum would be happy with a £10 bunch from your local supermarket. After all, it is the thought that counts.

 

I hope this post has helped and given you a little gift inspiration for the fast approaching Mother’s Day. Even if you can’t afford a gift, make sure your mum knows that she is loved and appreciated. This can be done by allowing her to take some time to herself whilst you take it upon yourself to do some chores or make her favourite dish.

Let me know if you have any more gift recommendations in the comments below, I do need a little more inspo myself!

  3. I also buy flowers as an addition to extra presents, I prefer to get my mum something nicer and more personal. Experience days are a good idea. I’m hoping to maybe go out for tea and cake with my mum on Mother’s Day weekend as an extra something nice 🙂 xx

  4. These are great recommendations for Mother’s Day gifts! I know personalized gifts can go a long way, especially with mothers! Hehe, personalized mugs will give a good touch! Experiences are great as well! Done out to some new place she hasn’t been before!
