Buying gifts for Mums - the best guide to Mothers Day

Mother’s day

It’s that time of the year again, where you celebrate the Mother in your life.

Hang on, I can hear you say, I thought Mother’s Day was in May? In the USA, that is the case. Their Mother’s Day always occurs on the Sunday closest to May 10th. 

However, in the UK, Mothering Sunday is always the fourth Sunday in Lent. It wasn’t even a day to celebrate mothers. It was part of the Christian festival in the Middle Ages to go back to your ‘mother church’. This celebration allowed children who were sent away to work to come back home and see their families. Over time, as it allowed families to be reunited, children used to stop and pick flowers from the side of the road to give to their Mum.

Nowadays, we can do much better than giving a flower from the side of the road to our loved one. Let’s see below for some brilliant ideas to show our Mother’s how much we care this Mother’s Day.

Favourite Mother’s Day gift ideas

The usual Mother’s Day gifts usually include the likes of perfume, chocolate, wine, afternoon Tea in their a fancy restaurant or if you're forgetful, the old favourite, the next day delivery bunch of fresh flowers from the nearby florist.

Those are great gifts, and with the wide range of choices available  you might be feeling slightly overwhelmed about what to get her. Everyone is at some some point. Don’t despair though, if you want a gift that she will remember forever and make you the most thoughtful childe ever, check out the inspiration below. 

What to buy for Mother’s Day

  1. For the mum who always has her head in a book

You can now buy a book subscription box, where every month she can have a surprise selection of books (usually with with other little treats too). Companies such as Teatime Book shop, Mr B’s Emporium, and a box of stories all offer subscription services

If she’s run out of space for her massive collection of books, perhaps a kindle could be the perfect Mother’s Day present.


  1. The Moms obsesses over their pets

Does your Mum treat her cat/dog like another child? A gift for her favourite pet would be the perfect idea. A new dog or cat collar could be just what she wants!

Mother’s work extremely hard, year round. What better to treat a busy mum with a gift that could help them relax and improve their mental health if feeling stressed. Candles and bath bombs or even a luxurious weighted blanket.

Many Mum’s like to spend any spare time from the kids hiding away in the garden. Potting plants and weeding. Mother’s Day would be the perfect occasion to treat your Mom to beautifully engraved plant pots or garden ornaments for their ideal garden.


  1. The super houseproud moms

Mother’s love making sure their house looks great. Either by making sure it is super tidy or by ensuring it contains the most amazing products.
