Mother's Day Gift Ideas
Mother’s Day is just around the corner (Sunday 31 March just in case you weren’t sure!) so I thought I’d pull together some really great present ideas to help you out!
If your Mum is anything like mine then she rarely stops or makes time for herself. Give her the gift of peace and relaxation this Mother’s Day. Most beauty salons do gift vouchers now so she can choose her own treatment. Alternatively, you could treat her to a spa day. She can enjoy being pampered and spending time with you too. Why not get her a spa day at Beauty & Melody in London.
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like receiving some kind of sweet treat or tasty tipple as a gift! So here are some of my all time favs that I think the Mum’s will love:
Dark Sugars- a chocolate gift shop in Brick Lane, London. Honestly this chocolate is unbelievable! Even just taking a look around the shop is mouth-watering. The creations are so delicate and luxurious with a range of pearl and metallic finishes as well as textured cocoa powder touches. They taste even better than they look. You can also order online.
Mama’s Donuts is another winner. Perfect name too! She makes scrumptious fresh donuts with endless toppings and flavours. You must check them out if your Mum is a donut addict like me!
Paola’s Patch is a super talented friend and client of mine who makes lots of lovely cakes and bakes. Her creations are so beautiful to look at and even better to taste! Take a look at her Instagram to see some of her amazing creations.
If you fancy something a bit different then you can’t beat Meringue Girls. Colourful, creative and oh so tasty! Trendy Mum’s are going to love them!
Obviously - Gin. You can’t go wrong with this! Some of my favourites are Gin Mare, Monkey 47 and for something a bit different, the yummy Whitley Neill Parma Violet.
Always a winner. Especially if you go slightly more creative with your floral choices and avoid the supermarket bouquets! It’s worth taking a look at Hedges and Flowers. She is super talented and creates amazing bouquets and creations for special occasions. She’s based in Kent.
Another favourite is Hannah Louise Flowers. I’ve worked with her on so many weddings and love how dedicated she is to all things floral! She’s based in Tiptree but generally covers the whole of Essex.
If you want to show your Mum how much you love her then get her something pretty! Alex Monroe’s jewellery is always a winner in our house. His handmade designs are inspired by nature and are so unique.
For a more personal piece take a look at Missoma. Gorgeous gifts that you can get engraved and great for those trendy Mum’s that love to follow the fashion trends.
The best of the rest
I’m just going to say it, Jo Malone. You can’t fail with this! All women love Jo Malone- fact. Candles or perfume, the scents are incredible and your Mum will beam with joy when she opens one of their beautifully wrapped gifts.
Another great idea for great candles and luxurious bath treats is The White Company.
For those Mum’s that have a great sense of humour and also love good scents try Litwick Candles. These handmade vegan candles are super cool and perfect for a modern Mum! Also- the quotes on the candles are hilarious.
Ok so I am biased BUT I can’t think of any better gift than that of lasting memories. I love photographing families and my photography gift vouchers make the perfect present for Mum or Nan. They always love photos of the kids so you can’t go wrong with this one!
Plus, we all know that Mum is never in the photo because she’s always the one behind the camera! Bring her front and centre and capture the laughter and love she has for you all.
If you would like to find out more about my gift vouchers or book in for a family shoot please get in touch.
Pictures of YOU!
I don’t think there is anyone’s face that Mum adores more than her own child’s. With that in mind why not get her a framed photo or canvas of you all together, or even a framed photo from your wedding that she loves.
Or even better, how about a mini copy of your wedding album just for Mum? You know she’ll love looking back through the day. I do offer these so if I have photographed your wedding and you’d be interested in having a mini duplicate copy of your album for Mum this year, just drop me an email for more info.
Mums to be
Let’s not forget those ladies that are almost, but not quite, Mums yet!
Mama Journals do some lovely gifts for Mum’s to be. I love this weekly pregnancy and self care journal. It’s such a lovely way for her to look after herself throughout her pregnancy but will also be treasured forever and looked back at for years to come. It’s the perfect keepsake.
I’m a firm believer that Mums to be need to be pampered! This New Mom Gift Basket on Etsy has everything that she needs to relax. It’s all natural too, so she knows that everything is safe for her to use.
So that’s it! I’m all out of ideas! Hopefully you found something useful in there. I hope you all have a fabulous Mother’s Day and celebrate those wonderful women in your life with your loved ones.
