While the red hearts of Valentines’ Day are a distant memory and March has settled in it means just one thing, Mothers’ Day is around the corner. I’m a little unlucky in the fact that my mum’s birthday is also in March and I’ve had occasions where they’ve been less than a week apart and on one frightful year they occurred on the same day. I am always super organized so it’s rarely ever a case of not being able to afford to buy awesome gifts but it’s coming up with enough ideas to cover both a birthday and Mothers’ Day. If you’re looking for some inspiration for the special day here’s some ideas.
This is an idea I love as I can benefit on this too, and it’s something I’ve done a few times before. There’s plenty of spa treatment offers on Groupon if you don’t want to splash out on a fancy trip away which is what I did. £30 each later and I’ve got vouchers for a full facial and a neck, back and shoulder massage, who could say no to that?! I know how much I love relaxing and being pampered so chances are your mum will feel the same, and the great thing is it’s something you can do together to give you some bonding/ catch up time.
There’s something about personalisation which makes an item seem more thoughtful and these two necklaces from DC Designs* are perfect for that. You can get a tree of life necklace with a rose gold stone set edging set on a sterling silver chain but what makes it even more special is what’s inside floating around. On my necklace is a small emerald and garnet stone representing the birthstone of me and my brother a lovely little touch. It doesn’t matter the occassion and customised order are always welcomed. The casing which the pendant is in is really sturdy without being too heavy or bulky and the rose gold is perfect and on trend. For a lot of people those who acted like mother figures’ aren’t always their mum’s and grandparents, or nan’s tend to play a large part in their lives so why not go for a floating heart Nana necklace to show your nan just how much she means to you?!

Bouquet of flowers
Flowers are an instant win for mothers’ day especially if you opt for your mum’s favourite flowers. For mine that’s lillies so this bunch of pink roses and lillies would be perfect for her. I always think flowers are great especially when you can get them delivered straight to the front door. Fortunately a lot of services’ are offering special Sunday deliveries so they can turn up on Mothers’ Day.
Personalized teabag holder
Going along the personalized theme it seemed only appropriate to include something tea related because what mum doesn’t love tea?! This cute teabag holder comes from Prezzybox* and is so affordable for a personalized item at under £9. I don’t know about you but whenever I take the teabag out of my cuppa the bin always seems so far away and if I do decide to make a run for it I always make a mess so this teabag holder is perfect. Take your teabag out, pop it on here and clear it out later. This adorable teabag rest has a vintage feel and is a decent thickness white ceramic making it durable without being too heavy. You can personalize it with up to 30 characters’ so you could go for a small message if you wanted like ‘I Love You Mum x’. Tea drinking mums can rejoice with this thoughtful gift.
Corded D3 Pen Mouse be where
Sometimes I like to go for practical gifts for my mum so when I saw this corded pen mouse* I thought it would make a great gift for my mum as she can not use the scroll pad on her laptop very well. This corded pen is suitable for both left and right handed users and you can just plug it in through the USB slot and use. You don’t need a mousemat or anything and the pen acts as the buttoms and scroll wheel you would get on a traditional mouse. This is such an easy to use gift it’s great for people of any age.
If your mum is anything like mine then prosecco is her drink of choice and she’ll settle for nothing less. In the past year or so prosecco themed gifts seem to be on the up which is why this Prosecco themed doormat* seemed like a perfect gift for my mum after some other prosecco themed gifts made their way under the Christmas tree for her in December. This doormat is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use which is great as it’s suitable for whatever type of property you live in. I know for a fact when my mum reads the ‘Come In If You Have Prosecco’ slogan embellished on she’s going to both chuckle and agree with it. Not only is the doormat awesome looking it’s also very practical as it’s made from tufted coconut fiber which will easily get off any mud or dirt from your shoes before entering the house.
