1. Personalised Gifts
Like this cushion from Not on the High Street - which is what my mum is getting this year (don't worry, she won't see my blog until after Sunday!) Personalised gifts are super special and show that you've put a lot of thought and effort into the present.
2. Spa/Beauty/Experience Vouchers
I often get my mum spa vouchers for her birthday and I have friends who've booked afternoon teas and boat trips for their mums which have gone down a treat.These sorts of things are great as you can both enjoy them together and they're a bit different from your usual gifts. Groupon, Travelzoo and Wowcher usually have deals for these kinds of presents.
3. Make a Meal (or a Cake)
Is there a better way to show your mum just how much you love her than letting her put her feet up whilst you whip up dinner or waking her up with a plate of croissants and mug of tea? You don't have to spend loads on some amazing present, I'm sure your mum will appreciate a lovingly made slice of toast and a cup of coffee just as much! If breakfasts and dinners just aren't your forte, how about a spot of baking? Homemade presents are often the best (and most delicious) kind!
4.Cinema/ Theatre Tickets
Similar to an experience voucher, how about treating your mum to a cinema or theatre trip? Again, it's a bit different to flowers and chocolates - although you can never really go wrong with flowers and chocolates - and it's something you can both enjoy together.
In my opinion, photos are one of the best presents that you can give or receive. They're really personal and a lovely way to relive memories that you've shared.You could arrange a whole load of photos in an album or a favourite in a frame.
Hope I've been able to give you a nudge in the right direction if you're still looking for that perfect present!
How are you planning to treat your mum this Mother's Day?
Lots of Love,
