The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift Guide
It’s that time of year, where we show our mothers or the brilliant women in our lives how much we love and appreciate them. Mother’s Day is Sunday 11 March and it’s a chance to give a thoughtful gift, but sometimes we just need a little help with that perfect idea that will make your mum’s day really special.
Here are some top suggestions to help you find a great gift for this Mother’s day.
A Fancy Photo Frame
Find something special that will sit or hang in pride of place in her home, but make sure that the best part of this gift is not just a beautiful frame, but the picture inside it. Try to find an old picture of your mum with you as a child, or of your parents together, or maybe with a grandparent, and have it restored. Old photos given a bit of love and care will surprise and delight your mum with a fresh look at treasured memories. Even better, if you’ve got the skills, digitally scan some great family pictures and create a new image that shows how much time and care you wanted to spend on making something for your mum.
London Theatre Tickets
Treat your mum to a theatre trip with tickets to one of London’s biggest musicals! Invite your mum to share a special visit to the capital to enjoy an iconic show this March. Motown has great music and will have you both singing all the way home and Mamma Mia! will transport you to a sunny Greek island to the sounds of ABBA. Or try the stunning 42nd Street featuring some of the most talented performers in the country, tap dancing their hearts out in this classic musical. With these and so many more shows to share with your mum, you can easily book a wonderful night out.
Handmade Gifts Or Cards
If you’re a crafty person, try designing a personalised gift or card for your mum. It’ll make for a unique, money-can’t-buy present that will show your mum that you really put time and effort into her gift. And if you need a hand, try getting a paint and stencil set or a paint your own mug kit, so you can get try out different designs with a bit of help. If you want to make something but you haven’t got as much time as you’d like to spend on a gift, take a look on Etsy.com and find some beautiful gifts that are a little more unique than shop-bought pieces.
Make A Gift Hamper
Treat your mum to a basket of her favourite treats with a personalised gift hamper. Why not focus on your mum’s favourite products or use her hobby as inspiration? If she’s mad about gardening and growing things, fill a basket full of seed packets, new gardening gloves, a trowel or something she’d love to use in her garden. Does she love a spa day? Fill a hamper full of her favourite luxury bath products, a monogrammed towel, scented candles and a fluffy new dressing gown.
Cook A Special Meal
Show your mum how much you appreciate her by treating her to a delicious dinner. Whether you’re a brilliant chef or a disaster in the kitchen, trying is the important thing. If you’re not willing to risk giving your loving mother food poisoning, book a Sunday lunch out at her favourite restaurant – don’t leave this one to the last minute, Sunday’s book up quickly!
