Mothers Day – Gift Ideas

Products received for the purpose of inclusion in this article

Mothers day already?! Are you sure? This year is flying by!

If you are on the lookout for a special gift for your Mum/Stepmum/Mum in Law/Enthusiastic neighbour or even Gran, then this is exactly where you need to be.

Although it’s true that a Mothers love is (usually, watch it kids…) unconditional, and we would rather you didn’t struggle, we do still like a nice present – who doesn’t! Especially me. If you are one of my offspring, take notes…

For the Mum with a little one

Are Mummies scared of monsters? There’s a noisy monster under Alexander’s bed. Baby T’s monster has a rumbling tummy. Daddy has monstrous problems at work. And Mummy’s sister finds monsters in a faraway place. But what about Mummy? Join Alexander in his latest colourful quest to find the answer to the puzzling question, Are Mummies scared of monsters?

Inspired by the style of Eric Carle and Lauren Child, Are Mummies Scared of Monsters follows Alexander on a quirky, colourful new quest, perfect for curious little ones with a playful sense of humour. This book would make a lovely gift for Mums of little ones.

For the Mum on the go

Most Mums love music and what gift could be better than the opportunity to listen to her favourite music or podcasts while on the go?

Edifier X3 TO-U earbuds achieved a perfect balance between premium sound quality and compact design. Qualcomm chipset provides strong capability with Bluetooth 5.0 while Apt X audio technology delivers CD-class sound quality. CVC 8.0 noise cancelation removes the background noise and transmits clearer voice. IP55 dustproof & waterproof design is perfect for outdoor activities. 8+16 hours of playtime and other technology like one-step pairing and tap control make it a perfect companion of yours.

If your mum is making an effort to be more sustainable then perhaps she’d appreciate some reusable period pants. Modibodi have a huge range of styles and absorbencies to choose from. We love the Classic Full Brief Everyday Bundle which is a lovely set with a mix of plain and brightly coloured underwear. There are so many on the site to choose from as well as some fab swimwear too!

Everyone needs to be organised

Boutique Gifts specialise in personalised gifts suitable for all occasions, including bags, jewellery, stationery and hampers. Many of their products are produced in their inhouse workshop based in Nottinghamshire.

As a lover of stationery I think this is a fabulous gift. This Parker gift box includes an exclusive design magenta Parker A5 notebook and Parker Jotter ball pen. The notebook has 96 lined sheets on cream paper, and ribbon marker. The pen has been personalised and engraved. Practical and thoughtful all at the same time.

The Mum who has it all

If you’re struggling to find a gift, how about an experience for mum? Buyagift have hundreds to choose from on their website. You simply purchase the gift experience and can send this via email to them or you can receive it in a lovely box which includes the voucher and gift it to them in person.

I thought that this Murder Mystery break for 2 would make an excellent present – and if you are lucky enough she might even take you!

Sustainable gifting

I’m now a complete convert when it comes to reusable sanitary products and love the selection and comfort of Trade to Aid Reusable Sanitary Pads, who also have a mission behind their products.

Period poverty is a real issue, affecting over 500 million women world-wide. It keeps girls out of school and the workplace. Trade to Aid want to end period poverty and provide women and girls in refugee camps with sanitary products to support them on their periods.

For every pack of pads you buy from Trade To Aid, they give a free pack to someone in need in a refugee camp. They also support menstrual education programmes for young people in West Africa.

I was kindly sent one of the Trade to Aid Reusable Sanitary Pad packs. This retails at £29.97.

The pack includes:

  • Two light flow pads
  • Two medium flow pads
  • Two heavy flow pads
  • One waterproof wet bag
