Mothers Day is quickly approaching and I feel that Mothers Day is a lot earlier this year? Hmm. Anyway, I thought I would put together a little gift guide because I know a lot of people are stuck on what to buy their mums. Although you should make your mum feel special all year round, it’s still nice to have a special day to remember all the good things she does for you. To be honest I wish I could spoil my mum all year round and I do tend to buy her little gifts as and when I can. Let’s crack on!
A lot of people buy their mums flowers, chocolate or teddy bears and whilst these gifts are lovely, a lot of mums already have so many of these things. That is why I decided to do this post and hopefully this gift guide might be helpful for someone who’s not quite sure what to buy their mum.
Home Accessories – OK so first of all, does your mum have any set theme in her living room/bedroom/bathroom/kitchen etc… Because my mum loves it when I buy her accessories to match her decor. For example, she has recently decorated her bedroom and has gone for a duck egg blue theme so I have been looking at accessories for her bedroom in this colour like trinket boxes, wall canvas’, cushions, candle holders and other cute, dainty ornamental gifts.
Asda tend to do a collection of lovely gifts for the home and recently Primark actually do some lovely stuff too.
Flower Vase – My mum has received many bouquets of flowers throughout the years from myself, my dad and her friends and family. So if your mum frequently receives or buys flowers, instead of flowers for Mother’s Day, what about a beautiful vase to hold her flowers in (or both, if you prefer). A vase can look lovely as a stand alone ornament and can make a lovely centre piece in a room.
I just came across these beautiful vases on Not On The High Street.

Candle Holder – Throughout the years I’ve also bought my mum a lot of candles. She’s kind of obsessed. So i thought it would be a great idea to buy her some sort of candle holder, to hold the candles she continuously buys. So I actually bought her a Yankee Candle Votive Holder and there are so many to choose from! I bought my mum hers from Amazon as they are quite a lot cheaper than on the Yankee Candle website, and I also bought her a little Yankee Candle votive to put inside.
The Yankee Candle Votive Holder I bought my Mum is actually the shell one featured below.
Photo Frame / Photo Album – Another gift that I think is lovely to get your mum is a pretty photo frame with a photo of you and your mum in. This is a very heartfelt gift and it isn’t too expensive. Or you could buy her a photo album and start it of with just a few photos of you and her and then let her complete the rest.
I’ve seen some lovely ones in Tesco, B&M Bargains and Home Bargains.
CDs/Books – Take note of what songs your mum frequently sings or the type of books she reads and buy her an album from one of her favourite artists or a book by her favourite author. For my mum it would be and Adelle CD and a book by Martina Cole.
Pyjamas/Slippers – I don’t like to repeatedly buy my mum the same gifts but something she can’t get enough of is pyjamas and slippers! So she is always pretty thrilled when she receives these.
You can get some really lovely pyjamas and slippers from Primark and Tesco!
A Day Out – If your mum isn’t particularly a fan of gifts, maybe she hates clutter, is too fussy or she has absolutely everything, you could perhaps book for the two of you to have a spar day together or take your mum for an afternoon tea!
I hope that you have found this post helpful in some way, I know that buying gifts can actually be really difficult! And if you’re a Mum yourself I hope you have a lovely Mother’s Day! Thank you for reading.
