Mother’s Day is definitely going to be a bit different for me this year, it’s my first as a mum! I thought I’d put together a little suits-all gift guide. There should be something on here that every mum would like, whether you’re buying for your own mum or for your significant other on behalf of your children!
If in doubt, stick with flowers. You really can’t go wrong. There’s something for every budget out there, from a bunch of tulips or daffodils for a couple of quid all the way to a fancy-pants bunch of roses. If you’re not sure what she likes go for something seasonal, they’re better value, meaning you can get a bigger bunch for your money and they tend to be fresher and last longer.
2. Jo Malone – Pomegranate Noir
Perfume is a cliché for a reason, it’s a treat she wouldn’t necessarily buy for herself. Pomegranate Noir is one of the best sellers from luxury perfume house Jo Malone.
3. Happy Jackson – Wakey Travel Mug
A fun travel mug to brighten up her morning commute, a great choice if you’re on a budget too.
4. Diptyque – Baies Candle
Luxury candles are such a treat, again something she might not buy for herself. This bestseller from Diptyque fills the room with the tart scent of blackberries. Perfect for when the kids have gone to bed.
5. Anthropologie – Petal Palette Monogramed Mug
I love these pretty mugs, they come in every letter of the alphabet. Perfect for a hot chocolate at the end of a long day!
6. Tom Ford – Cat Eye Sunglasses
A pair of designer sunglasses to make her feel glamorous and cover dark circles in under 5 seconds.
7. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – Americanah
For the mum who enjoys a good read, Americanah is the latest novel by the fantastic author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi.
8. Kate Spade – Stacy Snap Wallet
Wallets always seem to follow us around for years and years before being replaced, and when they are it’s usually because they’re falling apart. If that’s the case this Kate Spade one will be a lovely surprise, especially in a fun colour.
9. Lush – For Mum
If, like most people, your mum likes a good soak in the tub to melt her cares away head to lush to pick up a few bath time treats. They have a huge selection. You can curate your own gift or pick one of their pre-made sets, they have a lovely little range of limited edition Mother’s Day sets ranging from £12.50 all the way up to £69.95
10. Dogeared – Gold Filled Pearls of Love Necklace
A piece of jewellery always makes a lovely gift, especially when it’s a minimal piece she can wear everyday. This one’s great quality and doesn’t break the bank.
11. Hourglass – Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush Palette
There’s definitely a ‘things-she-wouldn’t-necessarily-treat-herself-to’ vibe to this gift guide, but those ones always make the best presents. This gorgeous palette will perk up dull skin in few seconds and it’ll feel like a glamorous treat every time she uses it.
12. Koly – Vintage Photo Frame
If you’re guilty of never printing pictures anymore, now is a great time to try and change that. A pretty frame with your favourite picture of the two of you makes a lovely gift on a budget, or if you have small children, why not pop in one of their drawings?
I hope this guide helped if you where pushed for ideas!
