5 Perfect Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

5 Perfect Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and although we can’t spend it in the traditional Mother’s Day style, here are five perfect gifts you can buy your mum to make sure her day is still special this year.

1. Flowers


What mum doesn’t love flowers? And they’re such a simple way to show appreciation to one another. Flowers seem like a bit of a cliched gift, but we’re yet to meet anyone that makes their home look colourful and fresh. Plus, you don’t have to deliver your flowers in person, you can have them delivered by a local florist.

2. Plan a day out

Plan a day out

It’s been so long since we were able to go on a proper day out, whether that’s to the theatre, a stately home or a lovely meal. And while you may have to delay gratification for a little while, we’re sure any parent would appreciate the forward planning and would appreciate the thought and the excitement that comes with such a gift.

3. Candles


We’re spending a lot of time in our homes at the minute, so getting something that keeps the house fresh is an ideal gift. There’s always the classic Yankee Candle that offers a strong, lasting fragrance, or you could go for something a little more bespoke and expensive if you want to pull all the stops out.

4. Perfume


No nail appointments, hair cuts or beauty related services has left us feeling a little unloved, and something like a bottle of perfume can give you that sensual lift you need during the day. Try an uplifting fragrance and one that can take us into spring and summer with new vigour and positivity.

5. Cookery book

Cookery book

Lockdown has seen a lot of people cooking more, whether it’s a roast, a fancy new dish they’ve made up or a huge cake! We’re impressed by some of the creations we’ve seen so far. So, if your mum is a baker or chef, let her indulge in creating some new recipes. You might be able to try some of them when you see each other again, so you’re winning as well!
