7 Mother's Day Gift Ideas



Mother's day is coming up, so I've been looking around at gift ideas. For me Mother's day is a time to remind your mum how much you apreciate her, even when you don't show it. If  your mum is anything like mine she's a superhero and has served as your best friend, your bank manager, your chef, your cleaner...all those things that we take for granted from time to time. It is also a reminder that spring is on its way, so I very much like to combine the two and have pretty, lovely spring related items to give to your mum. I've had a little look on the interwebs and chosen seven things for seven types of mothers that suit all budgets.

Tulip Re-Usable Bubble Bar, £5.25, Lush / For the mum who likes to pamper

Every blogger I think has tried a Lush bubble bar at some point, I know I had the Magic Wand at christmas, and it was lovely. They've got a couple out for mother's day/easter at the moment, but this was my favourite as its bright and pretty. Its a combo of cocoa and bergamot for a fresh scent to deeply moisturise - perfect for a pamper (or six)



Personalised Family Tree Papercut, £67, Not On The High Street / For the crafty mum

I saw this and thought it was a really sweet sentimental gift to give to your mum. Its a typographic family tree encased in clear glass with a choice of frames (extra cost!). I do think it is perhaps a little overpriced, but it's made in Britain and if like me you are quite useless with crafts, it is worth the money. If you are super handy you could have a stab at making this yourself - otherwise pop onto the website and choose up to six names to create a fabulous gift that your mum will proudly display.

Hydrangea Bone China Tea-for-One, £21, Laura Ashley / For the mum who loves her tea (and china)

I always seem to go to Laura Ashley for mother's day gifts! I think tea-for-one sets are super sweet and this one has a lovely spring floral design on it. It is on sale for £21, reduced from £28, and for china, thats a lovely price to have a good cup of tea.

Devonshire Cream Tea For Mum, £18.50, DeliMann / For mum that likes cream with her tea

It is lovely to be able to pop out for a cream tea, but if life gets in the way of your scones DeliMann will deliver a mini hamper to your mum containing 4 freshly baked scones, Devon clotted cream, two mini jars of strawberry jam, 15 bags of afternoon tea, and a lovely coaster for keepsake. For the price, this is really great, near me that average good cream tea retails at about £9 each. So if you can't take your mum out for a cream tea, you can take the cream tea to your mum.

Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair Set, £42, Boots / For the beauty blogger's mum

If you're like me, your mum played a huge part in your introduction to beauty as a teenager. The advance night repair range has huge rave reviews from beauty bloggers - so this set makes a perfect treat for a blogger's mum. The kit includes the eye serum, night repair serum, day cream and the sumptuous extreme mascara. Lovely!

Mini Tulip Tea Candles Multi Set, £6.75, Laura Ashley / For the gardening mum

Yes, there are three lots of Laura Ashley in this post - but I just couldn't resist any of their items! I actually bought my mum two of the large full size versions of these last year in white - I really wanted to get the tealight set but couldn't find it in time. This year they've got them back again, and they are just so sweet and very well made - such a perfect way for your mum to brighten up her bedroom.

Set of 6 Macaroons Candles, £9, Laura Ashley / For the mum who loves her cakes (but is on a diet)

 These are actually so sweet, I can't figure out if I just want them for myself! If your mum is on a diet and you don't want to ruin it for her, this adorable little boxset is the answer. They come in an array of beautiful pastel colours in a cake-style striped box, and just look great displayed in the box. I might have to get these for myself..

Also in the way of cards, I normally go for Marks and Spencer's cards because they are so lovely, but this year I've changed routine and saw the most amazing cards in...Card Factory! Of all places I would of gone, but they have really outdone themselves (and M&S) this year, and they are very well priced too. I picked up this one for my mother, because I just couldn't resist how beautiful it was!


Isn't it so beautiful?!

What are you buying your mum this mother's day?
