Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is fast approaching so I thought I'd share some ideas for Mother's Day presents and treats in case anyone is still looking for inspiration. I know that we should show our mums how much we love and appreciate them everyday of the year but Mother's Day is a lovely occasion to make your mum, or someone who is like a mum to you, feel extra special :)

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.

5. Photos

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,

  1. Lovely ideas! Mother's day in Sweden isn't until May, but it's great to start thinking early :) I used to always bake something or cook a nice dinner, but this year I have no idea what I'll do.

  2. Spa trips are always great Mother's Day gifts. They are fundamentally reinvigorating, as well as an earned respite. We can't have enough of those, and who more than anyone else deserve a day of relaxation and destressing than our mom's, right? In any way, thanks for sharing those great Mother's Day gift ideas! All the best to you!

  4. Great ideas love! I think anything personalized or photos are the best gifts ever! I have a 8 year old I love when she makes me things :-)!!


  5. Wow! Those ideas on what to give to out for Mother's day are all so nice and sweet. From the heartwarming personalized stuff, to the food and movie dates, as well as the memorable photos of you together. However, don't forget the spa and beauty treatments. Hahaha! That way, you can help your mom relax and live happily, the way she deserves to be. Thanks for sharing that, Heather! Kudos and all the best to you!
