Welcome to my Mother’s Day gift guide – yes, it’s really not long until Mother’s Day! Sunday 6th March is fast approaching, so here are some brilliant gift ideas to help you narrow down your search for the perfect present.
Whether the mum in question enjoys gardening, getting outdoors, pampering or just a lovely treat, there are lots of great gift suggestions here. Hopefully I’ve done the hard work for you and given you plenty of inspiration on ways to make her feel special this Mother’s Day. Enjoy!
Give your green-fingered mum an easy way to grow her own fruit and vegetables with a Rocket Garden, from £24.99. A Rocket Garden is a box of baby vegetable, herb or fruit plants which is delivered direct to your door. All you have to do is follow the instructions included to pop the plants into their new home; they can be grown in traditional beds, containers or raised beds. There’s a great range of boxes to suit every garden space too.
Bring the outdoors into the home in style with this gorgeous Candle in Posy Vase, £38 from Kenneth Turner London. Renowned for their exceptional scents that throw off intense, long-lasting fragrance, Kenneth Turner candles bring the fragrance of luxurious scented flowers straight into any room. This new home fragrance collection is a collaboration with leading British florist Laura Lee, and features six new floral scents inspired by some of our most romantic British flowers. The beautifully crafted glass vases can also be used to hold flowers or tea lights after the wax has burned.
Mums are always on the go, and this cute Vintage Apple Eco Coffee Cup, £9.95 from Rex London, is perfect for travel, commuting or dashing out on the school run. I love the bright apple design, so cheerful.
If your mum loves her garden a high quality hand tool is a great gift option. This Sneeboer heart-shaped trowel, £39.99 from Getting Personal, is very solid and beautifully made, plus it can be personalised with a name to make a unique gift.
A beautiful pack of five Greetings Cards, £19.99 from Yvonne Coomber, make a lovely flower-themed gift with a difference. Yvonne is a contemporary British artist based in South Devon, and her paintings focus on hedgerows, meadowlands, forests and wildflowers. Aren’t they fantastic? The website also features a range of prints starting from £114.
How about a luxurious gift for hard-working hands? The Pomegranate, Grapeseed and Argan range from Crabtree and Evelyn contains moisturising pomegranate oil extract and grapeseed extract, along with nourishing argan oil to help skin restore. Combine the Hand Wash, £15 with the ultra-moisturising 50g Hand Therapy, £9, for a truly pampering treat. Crabtree & Evelyn are supporting the Buy it with Love campaign and will donate £1 to Breast Cancer Care for each of these products sold before 16th March.
For a personalised gift with a difference, how about this Name a Rose gift box, £16.99 from Getting Personal. Choose the name when you buy and the pretty presentation tin comes with a unique pack of rose seeds registered to that name. The tin also includes a history of the rose, growing and care instructions and a calendar poster.
This Wall Mountable Herb Planter Kit, £14.99 from Primrose, is a lovely way to grow fresh herbs. It comes with seeds, labels and growing medium, so there’s everything you need to get planting straight away.
Got a sporty mum to buy for? Water bottles don’t have to be dull, as this Vintage Apple Water Bottle, £8.95 from Rex London proves. It has a generous 600ml capacity and is made from BPA-free plastic too.
Haskins Garden Centres have a great range of gift ideas for mums, including beautiful houseplants such as exotic orchids and peace lilies, scented candles, and gorgeous accessories from national fashion labels such as this beautiful Joules Wensley scarf, £19.95. Haskins Garden Centres are located in Ferndown in Dorset, West End in Southampton and Roundstone and Snowhill in West Sussex.
How about a fun cooking gift? Preserving is enjoying a bit of a revival at the moment and this Ball Home Preserving starter kit, £19.99, is a great introduction to making your own jams, pickles and chutneys. It guides you through the batch-making process in three easy steps, and it’s nice and compact too.
Mums who have really caught the gardening bug will love being able to extend their seed-growing season with this Premium Thermostatic Control Electric Propagator, £39.99 from Stewart Garden. The mains-powered mini-greenhouse maintains a constant temperature, which means seeds have a better success rate and grow more quickly. The Stewart range is available in B&Q, Homebase, Wilkinsons, Dobbies, Wyevale and many independent garden centres.
A beautiful bouquet of flowers is a classic gift choice for Mother’s Day, and this stunning Freya bouquet, £30 from Bloom & Wild, is a perfect option. The subtle Morning Dew rose is paired with fragrant stocks and delicately scented freesias, with wisps of green bell to create the feel of an English meadow. Just beautiful. And it’s a letterbox bouquet, which means it will fit through a standard letterbox, making it no hassle at all for mum to receive beautiful flowers in the post.
Jewellery is a brilliant gift choice for Mother’s Day and a perfect way to make your mum feel really special. Brilliant Inc have a fantastic range of accessible fine jewellery, featuring non-mined diamonds handset in either sterling silver or 9K gold. Non-mined diamonds are made in a laboratory under conditions that match the natural volcanic process of diamond creation, so they look just like the real thing at a fraction of the cost. And they’re ethically produced too. I particularly love this Circle of Life Necklace, £95, and this Pave Bar Bracelet, £80. So delicate, I’d be a very happy mum if I unwrapped these!
