Before we move into April (my birthday month, woo!), we’ve got Mother’s Day to celebrate with the rest of the UK on Sunday 31st March. This year will be my first Mother’s Day as a mum of two!
I’ve put together a little guide of simple, lovely gift ideas that I think the mums and grandmothers in your life will love. I know that so many people think their mum’s deserve millions of pounds worth of gifts, unfortunately, most of us don’t have that kind of money to spend, no matter how deserving they may be! Hopefully this gift guide will give you some inspiration and you’ll be able to find something beautiful and affordable to give to someone special this Mother’s Day.
The Sweet Morning Rose Yankee Candle
Spring is in the air, so why not fill your home with a light, sweet scent that is sure to brighten your mood. I always feel really productive and motivated in spring. Nature is doing it’s thing and the bright, sunny days and pops of colour everywhere make me feel great. The Sweet Morning Rose scented candle by Yankee Candle is a pretty pink confection scent, garnished with delicate rose petals. Yankee Candle describes it as ‘an artistic, sweet finale’. As with all Yankee Candles, the Sweet Morning Rose candle comes in a variety of sizes to suit your budget. For the candle loving mum, or a true lover of spring – this candle would make an excellent gift.

How about some new luxury leather notebooks or pens from Pen Heaven?
Pen Heaven, as the name would suggest, specialise in providing customers with a comprehensive range of luxury writing instruments and leather journals. They also offer in-house engraving and embossing to make your gifts extra special. The range of leather notebooks and pens is stunning – any stationary addict would be thrilled to receive one of the luxury items Pen Heaven offers. The Palmi Refillable Leather Journal is one of my favourite items. I write everything down – from documenting my days, writing to-do lists and planning out blog content – without a notebook, I am a broken woman. The leather journal is a classic gift and even has my name embossed in gold, which looks beautiful when set against the blush pink leather. The journal is refillable too, so whatever your mum would like to use it for,, she’ll always be able to keep that sentimental embossed leather cover you got her!
Mugs that make you feel good about yourself.
I love me a good mug! Some people same that mugs are rubbish presents, but I think they’re a fun and practical gift. I really like a mug with a good design, whether it be arty or a funny little phrase. A mug that I think a lot of my readers will be able to relate to is the I Will Not Compare Myself Mug from Prezzybox. It reads “I will not compare myself to a stranger on Instagram” and that is a sentence a lot of us need to read and re-read until it sinks in! If inspiration quotes aren’t your thing, or, like me, your mum just doesn’t function before her morning coffee, the Yes Studio I Don’t Need An Inspiration Quote travel mug could be a great cheeky little gift.
Save critically endangered animals, one pair of socks at a time.
I reviewed some socks recently that help save some of the most critically endangered species on the planet. Critically Endangered Socks help with conservation efforts and enable experts to educate people about the wildlife’s natural habits and behaviours. Critically Endangered Socks work alongside NGOs to help protect critically endangered animals and every purchase helps them get a little bit closer to their goal.
We all know someone with a sweet tooth…
I’m one of those mums who is 100% guilty of hiding in the kitchen scoffing the kid’s sweets when they’re not looking. It’s a bit naughty but sometimes something you remember from your own childhood catches your eye and it’s hard to resist! With the amazing hamper options from retro-sweet.co.uk, you could take away some of that guilt by gifting your mum her very own personalised sweet hamper. I was sent the Cheeky Monkey Sweet Hamper. It’s brimming with 21 different retro sweets, including Flying Saucers, Rhubarb and Custards, Fizz Wiz packets, Rainbow Drops, Scooby Doo Candy Sticks and loads more. It also comes with a super cuddly 16cm cheeky monkey cuddly toy, all in a beautifully presented wicker hamper. It really is something special and you can personalise it with any message or name you like!
Say it with flowers.
We all know someone who’s tricky to buy for! A beautiful bouquet from a company like Appleyard London, who I have previously worked with, makes an excellent gift for mums and grandma’s who have it all. Appleyard London even offer a subscription service which you can gift someone!
I hope this post has given you a few ideas for gifting your mum this Mother’s Day. If you’re still looking for inspiration, you can have a look at last years Mother’s Day gift guide too, which features some other great gifts.
