I am very much in favour of any excuse for my children to adorn me with gifts. This year Mother’s day falls in the same week as International Women’s Day – if that’s not enough of a reason to show the most important woman* in your life how much she rocks then I don’t know what is.
Here are some fabulous ideas for gifts for you to surprise the Mum in your life (if you live with a Mum who is not YOUR Mum then you still have to shop for her. I don’t make the rules)
Mother’s Day Gift Guide
The Echo Dot is an excellent choice. Amazon Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, provide information, read the news, set alarms and more. Available from Amazon (and that means next day delivery if you are a prime member) and currently priced at £39.99 **
The Makery Craft Kit – Embroidery Hoop is a cool kit that provides you with all the bits and pieces you need to create a scrummy new decoration for your favourite space. Just choose a letter and stitch away! If your Mum is even a teeny bit creative, this is the gift for her! **
Most Mums like a tipple now and again.
Let’s face it, you are probably part of the reason why. I have inherited my Mum’s love of a particular brand of irish cream beginning with B and ending with Aileys and I don’t often stray to other creamy drinks because well, it’s a massive brand for a reason right?
Wrong. The Carthy & Black Yorkshire Cream from 31Dover is superior in every single way. I would try to make this one of those balanced reviews where I give you the negatives of the thing I am throwing an opinion out about but I can’t. It’s heaven in a glass. Buy it here. **
If the Mum in your life is a blogger you cannot go wrong with stationary and this one is something special. The Art Deco range from Castelli sympathetically infuses the gold foil embossed design and luxury features for a sumptuous stationery accessory. The dotted ruled paper format is printed on ivory coloured pages finished with black page edges and rounded corners for a stylish finish.**
Stick with me on this. This apron from Handmade At Amazon really would be a great gift for the Mum who is often to be found in kitchen rustling up family meals. It’s neutral colour makes it a great fit for any decor. Also, you don’t have to worry about sizing..
Last but not least. Just be there. Go and pick up some flowers if you like (carnations happen to be my favourite) but to be honest 99% of Mums will love that you made the effort to give her a hug. Obviously pressies are nice though! Happy Mother’s Day!
*If you did not emerge into this world out of a woman then of course I will concede that perhaps someone else is more important. Anyone? No? Best go get a card then!
