Mother’s Day Gift Inspiration

We all know you don’t have to buy expensive gifts to show your mum just how much you love her. Doing something thoughtful is often appreciated just as much. Sometimes though, we just want to spoil our mums because… well, because they are awesome. So here’s a little list of goodies I’ve put together to give you a little inspiration.

Books Books Books

I LOVE reading – I don’t always find the time and I know I should because when I find a book that I just can’t put down, there is no better feeling. I’ve read a few books lately which are absolutely beautiful and here are a few that I’ve got on my list to read soon. But if I could recommend just one book to you, it would have to be Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owen. Set in the marshlands on the North Carolina coast and told through the eyes of the unforgettable Kya, you will be transported with her on her journey through this coming of age novel. Beauty and mystery all mixed into one.

Handy and Stylish

If your mum isn’t into reading, then why not look at something a little more practical but personalised too. Boutique gifts offer a wide range of utterly gorgeous and personalised items perfect for gifting this Mother’s Day. For my travels and days out, I love taking this gorgeous blue luxury leather backpack which is embossed with my initials. With gold embossed initials and gold zip detailing, this adjustable strap backpack looks stylish and luxurious. The leather is beautifully soft and I’ve had so many compliments about it.

Functionality wise, this is a great backpack with ample space. It is fully lined with a front zipped pocket which is large enough to actually be useful and not just pretty. There is a back zipped pocket to keep valuables in as well as an internal pocket to help keep your bag organised. The grab handle feature of the backpack straps is really useful too. Available in eight colours, I’m sure you’d find a colour to suit.

Be On Time

Although many will have smart watches these days, there are still occasions where you need something that looks a little smarter. Toff London offer some beautiful designs on their watches. This ladies Purple Dahlia Flower Watch is elegant without being too small. Each watch is assembled by hand and features a hand illustrated dial. I love that the straps are interchangeable with an easy release clasp so you can match your watch to your look. If you’re looking to personalise, you can get the back case engraved to make it an extra special gift.


If you’re looking to gift a little luxury in terms of beauty products, because if you’re anything like me, you don’t tend to spend a lot of money on products for yourself, Little Butterfly Scent of Seas Toning Body Serum is a gorgeous gift. This body serum glides on your skin without feeling sticky. It absorbs quickly (what mum doesn’t need speed in a morning routine!) and smells divine. With summer just around the corner, this toning body serum will help you feel beautifully hydrated with smoother, more even skin tone giving the appearance of more tines and refined skin. The packaging, while not important to the quality of the product itself, is gorgeous too. It would make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day for mothers of all stages. It’s pregnancy and breastfeeding safe while also suiting mothers with older children too.

If you’re looking for a face toner, Infinite by Forever Firming Serum is another top choice. The easy to apply gel-like formula keeps your skin feeling hydrated and firmer. It’s fast to absorb which is a must for me as I don’t have a lot of time to wait around in the mornings. Forever uses three amino acid peptide and yeast extract to help encourage collagen and boost the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Working from both the inside and out, this firming serum will have you feeling glam, even on those dull school-run mornings.

If make up is more your thing, Borboleta Lash Serum will get your lashes looking luscious in no time. In just 4 weeks you could see your lashes looking thicker and fuller. Whether you’re looking for volume or just a little more lush, this amazing lash serum will give you the results you didn’t know you needed.

Back to Body Care

I love a good gift box and ARRAN Sense of Scotland offer some gorgeous and luxurious sets to pamper your mum this year. This ARRAN Sense of Scotland After the Rain Body Care Set smells gorgeous and lasts hours. It’s wonderfully refreshing and light, as the name suggests but has a longevity too. The gift set comes nicely packaged and the bottles, with their nature inspired tops look fantastic on display too. Made in Scotland, Arran capture the scents of nature and bottle them in

Perhaps one to hint at for yourself!

The Sensica Sensilift Mini might be a great gift for yourself, or your mum as long as she doesn’t get offended! This mini face anti-aging tool will help you feel the difference without the need for surgery! This radio frequency skin tightening kit allows you to improve your skin texture in just 5 minutes a week. Designed to stimulate the collagen in your skin, it aims to improve your skins elasticity renewal keeping you looking younger. With a smart temperature control and built in sensors, you can safely use this at home or while away. Apply to those pesky laughter lines, jawline, forehead and cheeks to effortlessly boost your radiance.

Chocolate galore

If you don’t fancy any of the beauty products, why not go for the fail-safe chocolate. I always know I’m on to a winner by adding chocolates to any gift for my mum. Cadbury Mother’s Day Treasure Box has a little bit of everything in. I don’t know what’s not to love! With a delicious Dairy Milk bar wrapped in a ‘Love you Mum’ sleeve, as well as some of her favourite choccies, she’s sure to feel the love with this treat box.

Or if Green and Blacks is more to her taste, they offer a scrumptious organic I Love You chocolate gift set. With an original bar in a Love You Mum sleeve along side an intense dark, white and sea salt 90g bar you also get two 35g bars for when you just need that quick pick me up moment.

Alternative Gift Ideas

If your mum likes to be a little different and isn’t one for more traditional gifts, have you thought about looking at gifts from Lost Universe? I absolutely adore this Star Wars The Mandalorian The Child Cable Guy. Not only is he adorably cute, but he’s also very handy. The Child can hold controllers or a phone. This cable guy is compatible with PlayStation controllers, Xbox controllers and most smartphones. It comes with 2m micro USB cable too. Who wouldn’t want this cute guy either on their bedside table or on their desk to keep them company?

If you love The Child but you have no need for a phone/controller holder, fear not, Lost Universe also have this super sweet Star Wars The Mandalorian The Child Desk Lamp. What I especially love about the desk lamp is that you can literally place him anywhere. Powered by USB or 2x AAA Batteries (not included) you can let The Child light up your life whenever you need a little brightness in your life.
