I love shopping for other people and normally i’m great at getting the perfect gift for my loved ones. Generally my mum is really easy to shop for but i find mothers day so incredible difficult.
It’s a smaller budget than Christmas and Birthdays and it feels like Christmas was only a few weeks ago so she doesn’t really need anything new. This is the most unorganised i’ve ever been, normally i’ve got her present wrapped up and ready!
I’ve been scouring the shops to try and find something perfect and i’ve seen a lot of great stuff so i’ve put together a gift guide to hopefully give you all some inspiration!
£10 and under
Next Gold Alphabet Mug £4.50 (x)
These are so cute! I think anyone would love these and they are a steal for the price! I’ve actually ordered one for my mum and myself. You could pair this with some nice biscuits and a nice hand cream and you have a lovely, thoughtful gift.
Accessorize Love Heart Trinket Tray £8 (x)
Trinket dishes are so handy and this one is absolutely gorgeous.
Accessorize Water Bottle with Snack Pot £8 (x)
For health conscious busy mums, this is a great idea. I love that it tells you how much water you’re drinking and the snack pot keeps everything compact.
M&S Dog Ring Stand £9.50 (x)
If your mum loves dogs and jewellery, this is a winner. I’m obsessed with this and i know my mum would love it.
Molton Brown Hand Cream £10 (x)
A good rule of thumb for gifts is, something they love but wouldn’t buy themselves. My mum would never spend £10 on a hand cream but she loves Molton Brown. I love to pop one of these in her presents. I’ve linked the full page because i couldn’t pick just one. My recommendations would be: orange & bergamot, ylang-ylang & rhubarb and rose.
Next The Hamptons candle £10 (x)
Next is my absolute go-to for fragrances and can you ever really go wrong with a candle? The Hamptons candle is part of the new Country Luxe collection which is elegantly designed and smells beautiful.
Accessorize Delilah Across Body Bag £14.50 (x)
I love Accessorize for bags and this is really stylish and modern without being too out there. It’s actually on sale from £29 so this is a bargain. This is a great size and a great colour combination.
Next Mint Jersey Geometric Print Pyjamas £18 (x)
Pyjamas are a safe option but when do mums actually buy their own pyjamas? I actually treated myself to these, they are so comfortable and the print is gorgeous. They’re very spring and fresh and i just love them.
Sanctuary Spa With Love Mother’s Day Gift Set £22 (x)
This is such good value for money. At only £22 you kind of touch every base and Sanctuary is a really good brand.
Ted Baker Bowtiful Signature Pen £24.95 (x)
This is absolutely gorgeous and absolutely too indulgent to buy yourself but makes an excellent gift. Pens are so underrated as gifts, i love the colour and the bow detail.
£25 and over
Ted Baker Kit For A Queen £25 (x)
Again great value for money. A really lovely, indulgent gift for your loved one. This is a limited edition wash bag with lots of lovely goodies inside.
Kate Spade Heart of Gold Bangle £28 (x)
Simple, elegant with a beautiful engraving that is really thoughtful. They also have something similar in silver and rose gold depending on your mum’s (or whoever else you’re treating) preferred jewellery colour.
Oliver Bonas Florbella Tall Ceramic Vase £28 (x)
Homey thing always go down well. These colours are beautiful and i absolutely love the shape of it. You could put some fake flowers in this and it would go down a treat on mothers day!
Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Palette £31.20 (x)
I’ve been eying up this palette for a while and think it would be a perfect mothers day gift. My mum loves nice make-up but she also loves quick. This palette is everything in one, the colours all match and work together and it’s just effortless.
I really hope you now have some inspiration when it comes to spoiling your mum. Don’t forget it’s the thought that counts and it doesn’t need to be a present. Sometimes taking your mum out for afternoon tea or a spa day is the perfect gift!
I really hope you enjoyed this post, if you did be sure to give it a like and subscribe so you don’t miss another.
