Mother’s Day gifts can be pretty generic, or you can choose to be different!
“It’s the thought that counts” really is true. Putting thought into a gift means more to the recipient.
Here are my top choices for Mother’s Day gifts this year. I’ve tried to pick things I love and know, and something to suit different budgets.
#1 Solo style consultation and gift voucher
OK, Solo is my client, but what a nice gift! You buy a gift voucher, book a style consultation, and Samantha who owns Solo will be on hand to pick key looks for a spring summer wardrobe update. From HIGH to Marc Cain and Eileen Fisher to Creenstone, there are some great brands to choose from.
#2 Personalised cards
Personalised cards show you’ve put thought into choosing and ordering something pretty special. This gorgeous laser cut card is for ‘First Mother’s Day’, which is a lovely idea for new Mums. It’s £4.95 and there are other Mother’s Day cards to choose from. Order soon via Not on the High Street.
Whether it’s just the kids, the dogs or the whole family, this personalised family portrait gift would make a really lovely and thoughtful gift. It’s £160, but all you need to do is send a photo you want made into the portrait, work with the designer on the colours etc and it’ll look fantastic. It doesn’t come with a frame, but as it’s in A2 or A3 sizes you can easily pick up a frame.
Flowers cheer everyone and every room up! Bloom & Wild I love because they do letterbox flowers, which makes it so much more convenient for deliveries. Instead of just one gift of flowers, you can also buy a flower subscription for someone, for three, six, 12 months or ongoing!
The choices are great and I’ve always found B&W value. You also get 10% off for first time users!
#5 Afternoon tea at Gleneagles
Gleneagles is one of my most favourite destinations for a luxury night away, a spa day or afternoon tea. Afternoon tea at Gleneagles is always special and you can pimp up what kind of afternoon tea you want to gift. Afternoon tea for two starts at £80 or you can buy afternoon tea for one for £40.
Imagine seeing the west coast of Scotland from a seaplane! The views will be stunning, the experience will be memorable and it’s not something you do every weekend! A one hour flight in a luxury seaplane will cost £103pp.
#7 French Macarons
Laduree in Paris is and now in London, is my ultimate fav! However, a clever lady has brought her version to Edinburgh! Mademoiselle Macaron let’s you buy online, buy subscriptions and even book classes! This is a really classy gift and who can argue when you get to eat the results! A box of six macarons starts at £8.50, a tower, from £95 and classes £49.50.
This accessory is brilliant for those Mum’s who like to get a break in bed on the odd occasion, or rather than those who like, but those who can manage! This little wooden ibed lap desk, is perfect for catching up with news and gossip on an iPad and resting your brew. It’s only £12.99 at the moment!
#9 Vibrating head massager
What’s not to like about this?! It’s the perfect gift for Mum’s who are always busy and being attentive to their families. The vibrating head massager is only £6.99 so maybe you could add this in as a wee treat!
#10 An insulated cup for Mums on the go
I’ve bought my Mum one for the car. She tends to drive my step Dad around a lot and she loves her coffee. It’s perfect for those who need something for on the go and to refill in your favourite coffee stop. This ‘Think happy be happy‘ cup is a nice size and comes in at £8.00. There are similar items available on the same website.
So that’s my round-up of Mother’s Day gifts and you can buy them all from the comfort of your couch! Just don’t leave it too late!
