Even if you’re a parent yourself (and perhaps about to celebrate your very first Mother’s Day), it’s still nice to treat your own mum on the big day. Especially now your baby’s here and you can make it about her new role as a Grandma. If so, we’ve got some of the best gift ideas.
Key ring, £3.99, Not On The High Street
With a sweet floral design, this wooden key ring is designed by calligraphers at Angelic Hen’s studio in the Wye Valley. Now, there’s no mistaking who the keys belong to.
Body and Hand Lotion, £38, Jo Malone
One of our favourite Jo Malone scents, English Pear and Freesia is sweet but still fresh – serious country garden nostalgia. This cream isn’t too heavy and absorbs easily.
Bouquet, £30, Moonpig
There are plenty of flower options out there, but we love this rainbow bouquet of tulips, roses, iris and daffodils that really show spring is here.
Memory print, from £14.99, Chatterbox Walls
Personalise this poster with seven of your favourite family memories (perhaps her first hold with your little one?). Available in 23 colours.
Chocolates, £11.50, Prestat
OK, we know floral-inspired chocs aren’t for everyone, but these rose and violet crèmes are a winner with us – plus, more for you if some people aren’t keen.
Mugs, £8.99 or two for £15, RSPB
Super-cute ways to enjoy her morning coffee. Choose from designs including robin, thrush, wagtail and barn owl.
Breakfast In Bed, £40, Moonpig
Nothing beats it, really – especially when it comes all packaged up neatly. This gift box contains champers, tea, coffee, juice, granola, jam, marmalade, a vase and even a ‘Good Morning’ toast stamp.
Candle, £16, The White Company
Bring the smell of freshly cut grass into her home. This candle features scents of chamomile, violet and lily of the valley.
Picture frame, £16, Cargo
With a beachy washed effect, this is a great value frame to keep that three-gen photo for the ultimate Mother’s Day gift.
Hangers, £15 for two, House Of Fraser
This padded set of hangers gives any wardrobe a boost. Perfect for your mum to hang her favourite outfits.
Mug, £7.99, Funky Pigeon
Personalise this mug with your child’s name, so she’ll be reminded of your little one every time she puts the kettle on.
Magazine holder, £12, Emma Bridgewater
Ideal storage if her favourite reads or back issues are building up by the bed or under the coffee table. We love the design with Emma Bridgewater’s classic font.
Voucher, from £25, Spafinder
This can be used at more than 1,000 spa venues in the UK, so whether it’s a facial, manicure or massage that appeals to her, you’re covered.
Cardigan, £75, Marks and Spencer
This cashmere cardigan is the perfect staple for Spring. It’s machine washable (always a winner) and comes in colours including pink, blue and yellow.
Every parent knows the importance of planning ahead; from the new school shoes, to your little one’s education, you want to fill their future with hopes and dreams. Yet are you one of the 80% of adults here in the UK that has no life cover?
