Mothers Day is on Sunday the 31st of March this year. It’s a day to celebrate those special women in your life and show them exactly how much you care. When it comes to buying Mothers Day gifts, it’s not always an easy task, so I have put together some items that I think will be perfect this year!
Mums that Deserve Pampering this Mothers Day
Let’s be honest most Mums put themselves last when it comes to anything especially when they are giving out care! “You can’t pour from an empty cup” as they say and self-care is really important but often something us Mums don’t indulge in enough. So what a great way to encourage self-care by giving it as a gift. I recently went on a Red Letter Days Pamper Treat for Two (which you can read more about here.) It was set at the beautiful Crewe Hall, and it included lunch, use of the spa facilities and a 50-minute treatment for two of us. I left feeling pampered and relaxed – the perfect gift for Mothers Day.
If heading out to the spa isn’t the perfect option then why not consider some self-care at home something like the *Moroccan Hammam Spa Ritual set from Vie Naturals. This set comes with a Moroccan Rhassoul Clay for face, body and hair. A Moroccan Black Soap with Eucalyptus essential oil and Argan Oil for face, body, hair and nails. This lovely kit also comes with a coconut spoon and an exfoliating glove for the ultimate pampering treat at home.
Another indulgent treat that is perfect for some at home pampering would be one of the vegan and cruelty-free massage oils from Anma Beauty. Each oil has a different purpose which means there is bound to be the perfect one! My two faves for Mothers day are the Toning with ginger, and black pepper and Tranquility with lavender and velvet rose. The scent is gorgeous on both oils, and they massage in and absorb really well leaving your skin feeling relaxed and soft.
For some indulgent skincare products then the Ayumi Naturals Turmeric & Bergamot Body Lotion and the Turmeric & Bergamot Face Scrub are perfect. Both products are Vegetarian Society Approved and Cruelty-Free. The face scrub cleanses pores and buffs away dead skins with anti-inflammatory turmeric extract and healing papaya. The body lotion is perfect for dry and dehydrated skin as it locks in moisture and helps skin retain its natural glow.
Mums that Want Something to Drink this Mothers Day
When it comes to spoiling the ones we love than giving them exactly what they love is a great place to start whether they like an alcoholic tipple, a strong coffee or a good old fashioned cup of tea.
Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur is a great gift to give anyone that likes a cocktail. Add it to your favourite fizz for something a bit different or combine it to make a special Mothers day cocktail! You can check out some simple yet super delicious recipes on the Chambord website here. You can purchase from *Amazon here.
Another great gift idea is these gorgeous gin glasses from Ginology. There are twelve different designs to choose from all priced at £9.95 each and standing 20cm tall. They’re not just pretty to look at these glasses are practical too. Each glass is presented in a kraft gift box making them perfect for giving to that special lady in your life!
If alcohol isn’t quite what you are looking for then why not treat your Mum to some special coffee this mothers day? I’m a big fan of Extract Coffee since I tried them earlier this year and they have a great selection of single bags of coffee, coffee subscriptions, vouchers and even barista workshops! I’ve tried a couple of different coffees from them, and I am really impressed with the flavour and quality. You can choose to have the coffee as beans or ground to your preferred level depending on what you are using it with.
Now I love coffee don’t get me wrong but I am also partial to a good old fashioned cup of tea, and that makes perfect sense being from Yorkshire and all!! I like all different teas from your English breakfast to a peppermint selection. If your special lady loves a good brew, then this personalised Botanical Design Tea Box from Giftpup is a great gift. The box is made from solid pine and has a silver clasp which combined with the personalisation makes this a truly special gift. Priced at £24.99 including personalisation and dispatched within 72 hours.
Mums that Like to Smell Nice this Mothers Day
You really can’t beat some nice ‘smellies’ when it comes to giving a gift this year! Some of my favourites are the Yardley London English Rose Body Wash (rrp £6.00) and Eau De Toilette (50ml £9.99) and the Luxury Soap Collection (4 x 50g soaps of Lavender, Rose, Lily of the Valley and April Violets £6.99). The fragrance is light a delicate – perfect for heading into spring!
Another lovely treat is the Woods of Windsor Lily of the Valley Nourishing Hand & Nail Cream (100ml £9.99.) Containing shea butter, vitamin E and B5 hands are left soft and smelling beautiful. The perfect size to carry in a handbag or keep by the bed.
Mums that Deserve Something Special
We are heading into spring and then onto summer, and the perfect gift for any Mum that likes to enjoy the good weather, go for a dip or take a nice vacation has to be a Tesalate Towel! Each towel comes in a fantastic bold design and is perfect for taking on the beach because unlike regular towels the sand just slips right off! They are really absorbent and quick drying and lightweight!

If you like the idea of giving gifts while also giving back then a pair of socks from Critically Endangered Socks is the perfect idea. Each pair that is purchased helps to protect some of the worlds most critically endangered animals. The socks are made from a sustainable blend of bamboo and cotton, and they are super soft and comfy. There are five different designs to choose from in two different sizes and retail at £12 per pair.
Dr PawPaw is the UK’s first paw paw based balm. It is multi-purpose so can be used on the lips, skin and hair and is a real beauty essential. Loved by the likes of Emma Willis and Emma Watson its perfect for keeping in a handbag or taking on the go.
Personalised gifts are always a good idea, and the Book of Mum from The Book of Everyone is a unique gift made just for that someone special. Creating the book is simple, and you just follow the online prompts on the website. Prices start from £23.99, and you only need a few basic details to get started. This is the second book I have personalised, and I am really impressed with the quality, speed and design. Create your own here.
