5 Gift Ideas To Wow Your Mum This Mother’s Day

With mother’s day just around the corner, on Sunday the 26th of March, it’s important to treat your mum to something special to show her how much you appreciate everything she’s done for you over the years.

From her magical healing powers when you scraped your knees, to somehow having the answer for every situation that arises, she’s been there for you every step of the way.

It’s easy to fall into the typical card, flowers and chocolates trap, which although any mother would be grateful for, sometimes it’s nice to go a little above and beyond. We’ve tried to think outside the box to give you a few ideas that are sure to put a smile on her face (after you’ve given her breakfast in bed that is!).

Days Out

What better way to show your mother how brilliant she is than by whisking her off to an unknown destination? This could be extravagant as a week in the Maldives or as modest as a weekend in Manchester, depending on your budget.

A well deserved break is probably exactly what she needs, and a great chance for you to spend some quality time together, away from the stresses of everyday life. Alternatively, she could even take a friend. If a weekend away is still a little out of your price range, there are plenty of days out that she would be just as grateful for. You could take her shopping for the day, for afternoon tea or treat her to dinner at her favourite restaurant.

You could get her tickets to see her favourite singer in concert, for the theatre or the cinema. If she’s the outdoors type, she might really appreciate a day trip to the countryside for a stroll or a cycle in the fresh air.

Jewellery

Jewellery is a classic way to make your mother feel special. Whether it’s an elegant bracelet, a statement ring, a delicate necklace, or some dazzling earrings she’s sure to be truly amazed. If you’re unsure exactly what she would like, a sneaky way to find out is to subtly point things out in a magazine or a shop window and gauge her reaction.

Bare in mind that you pay for what you get, so don’t skimp on price and instead go for good quality brands such as Links of London, Georg Jensen, Michael Kors and Thomas Sabo. Choose a well known, trusted brand, because the last thing you want is your mum’s new necklace falling to pieces after a week, or turning her neck green.

Personalised Gift

Sometimes a gift that is personal to your mother will mean far more to her. There are plenty of gifts that you can buy which give you the option to personalise them. Whether it’s a personalised photo frame, cushion, iPhone case, key ring or mug, she’s sure to treasure it forever.

Another way of creating a personalised gift is to take a basket and fill it with everything you know she loves, a hamper tailored just to her. For an extra personal touch you could even make her a video with old clips of the family from over the years, along with videos of you and your siblings, telling her how much she means to you all.

Add her favourite song as the soundtrack and she’ll be overwhelmed by the sentiment. Another option is to create a scrapbook for her. Fill it with photographs and memorabilia from the past, which again will speak a thousand words, after all nothing shows you care more than a homemade gift.

Beauty Treatment

Why not pamper your mum with a luxury spa day, and even treat yourself in the process! There’s a huge range of treatments out there, so there’s sure to be something that your mum would love (and that your budget would allow!). This is the perfect opportunity for your mum to put her feet up and be treated like she deserves. Many spas and salons will even have put a package together especially for mothers day, so keep an eye out for those. From reviving facials and tension busting massages, to perfect pedicures and exfoliating body polishes she’ll end up feeling like a new woman.

Every Little Helps

If your mum is really enthusiastic about helping out a specific cause or charity, then a nice idea may be to make a donation in her name. It could be anything from your local animal shelter or a cancer trust, to helping the homeless or those in third world countries. If it’s something that she is passionate about then this will mean a lot to her, showing her that you care about her and the cause too.

Finally and most importantly, you should make sure that you help her out too. Although you should already help out on a normal basis, since it’s mother’s day you should make sure she doesn’t even have to lift a finger. In addition, you could create a gift voucher for a month’s worth of chores, that she can redeem whenever she wishes.
