Mother’s Day is less than a fortnight away (it’s the 26th March) so I thought now would be a good time to put together a few gift suggestions to help you find the perfect present for your Mum. Don’t leave it to the last minute and turn up with some flowers from your nearest petrol station, take a look at some of my suggestions below and you’ll be sure to get major brownie points this year! I’m going to put together separate guides for all the major gift groups (Flowers, Jewellery, Cards & Chocolates will all follow later this week). To kick things off take a look below at my gift suggestions – there are some great ideas for unique presents (and you won’t have to break the bank either).
My 1st Years
My 1st Years have some amazing gift ideas for Mother’s Day, especially if you’re shopping for a mum with young children. There are some lovely personalised gifts including this gorgeous babygrow, add your child’s name for the extra special touch. I would have loved to receive this personalised 1st Mother’s Day frame when my kids were babies. It’s perfect to commemorate your first year with your little one, especially as you can include their handprint within the frame to remember how small they were! Or for the older children, this ‘Mother & Daughter’ white wooden photo frame would make a great gift, plus it can be personalised too!
Everything from My 1st Years comes with a luxury gift box (the packaging is really impressive) so your gift will really stand out. See the full range here.
Marks & Spencer
Why not treat your Mum to something different from Marks & Spencer. They have some beautiful food and wine hampers available for FREE delivery on Mother’s Day on all orders over £50. Why not really splash out and treat her to this Luxury High Tea Hamper – this would be my Mums ideal gift so she can just kick back and relax on the day and enjoy her favourite wines and treats! I also really love this Wooden Trug with prosecco, chocolates and roses, what mum doesn’t like all of those? Click here to see the full range from Marks and Spencer.
Matalan really does have a great range of gorgeous gifts for all price ranges. I especially like these Tulips in a Bowl, they are really elegant and would be a lovely table centrepiece! Why not make up your own little gift box of all mums favourites. I got one of these last year, with pyjamas, candle and a cute wine glass and had my perfect mum’s evening in! Matalan hasn’t forgotten the Grandmas either with some really cute cups and hand lotions at great prices, perfect gifts from the little ones. Click here to see the full range.
If you want to think outside of the box and really wow Mum then this Beauty Box from Lookfantastic is great value for money. This is the Elle Edition and packs over £70 worth of beauty treats into this box for only £13! All the latest trends and most exciting products in the industry at a cut price, I think I’ll even treat myself to this one as I never know what new products to try! Please note this is a subscription so make sure you read T & C’s fully. Lookfantastic also has a great range of others gifts worth checking out.
Joy the Store
JOY has some really great indulgent treats and a huge range to choose from. Why not treat your leading lady to scarves in 100% cashmere, soy wax candles, delicate jewellery or luxury leather purses? In fact, they have this great Louche everyday purse on for half price at the moment, I really love the colour it’s so different! Or if pampering sessions are the ticket to her heart, they have a fabulous range of life’s little luxuries – Oh! Also hair and face masks, panda-shaped cooling eye pads and luxury bath oils. Make her Mother’s Day a JOYful one this year.
If you’re thinking of getting Mum some new perfume then make sure you take a look at the flash sale at Brand Alley with up to 50% fragrance. You’ll need to be quick as it’s only running for 3 more days! There are incredible deals on top brand name perfume like Estee Lauder, Armani, Issey Miyake & my mum’s favourite (Flower by Kenzo). If you’re after a bargain then check out these perfumes from DKNY, Burberry & Lacoste (all less than £21). Or save a massive £40 off this bottle of Eternity by Calvin Klein, now just £28 for 100ml! If you’re not already a member you’ll need to sign up to Brand Alley to see these deals but it’s definitely worth it as they have some amazing sales.
I love searching through I Want One of Those when it comes to gifts. They have some really unique and quirky gift ideas and something to suit every Mum! Really spoil her this year with an extra special treat from luxury spa days to chocolates and home comforts. My top picks this year are all about scents, such as the Scent From Box, Luxury Brand Baylis & Harding and the Design your own Perfume Kit which is just gorgeous for the creative Mums out there! You really can find something for everyone here.
And finally, for those super fit Mums who just won’t appreciate the wine, chocolate or flowers types of gifts why not check out the Nike sale and get them what they can really use! There are some great discounts in the Nike sale at the moment with almost 30% of a wide range of products. I especially like the little gifts which are really handy but the sort of thing you would normally never buy yourself. Like this gym tote bag which is really cute and a great size or for the runners out there this hand-held water bottle looks so much easier to run with than a bulky one.
I hope you found that helpful. If there’s something else you’re looking for then please drop me an email and I’ll try to include it in my second gift ideas post this Friday. In the meantime, I’ll be posting my suggestions for Flowers Gifts tomorrow, with more gift guides due every day this week! If you haven’t already make sure you sign up to my mailing list to get exclusive deals and offers sent straight to your inbox every day – I’ll be sending a Mother’s Day themed newsletter next Monday so make sure you don’t miss it. Finally, keep an eye out for a chance to win a fantastic Mother’s Day prize – all the details will be posted on the Facebook page on Thursday!
