Mother’s Day takes place this year on Sunday 31st March and you might be feeling unprepared. But, there is still time to secure that perfect gift — check out my Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide to find the best presents to buy your mum this year.
Everyone loves being treat like a queen at least once a year and what better way than with food and drink she hasn’t had to prepare herself!
If she’s a vegan, you might usually struggle to get her something sweet that she’ll enjoy but have you thought of vegan chocolate? You could also make her a vegan Sunday dinner as an extra way to gain some brownie points!
Gin has been growing in popularity over the past few years, so your mum is guaranteed to love a luxury bottle for herself. You could treat her to a new pair of gin glasses to complete the perfect gift! I think we all know where I stand on this one…give me all the gin, thank you very much!
Flowers and chocolates are great gifts, but it’s nice to give your mum something she can keep too. If you know the type of jewellery she already wears, you can probably take a good guess on the sort of pieces to buy — keep the receipt just in case! I recently created a review for a lovely locket which would make the ideal gift if you pop in a little photograph of yourself of course!
Check out Angelic Diamonds for a selection of marquise diamond rings and stylish drop earrings, guaranteed to put a smile on your mother’s face for the occasion. Take it to the next level with their bespoke service, bringing your ideas to life with their expertise and 3D technology.
Sometimes your mum just wants to spend some time with quality you, and what could be a better excuse than to get together for Mother’s Day? I have taken mum on spa visits in the past and it really is a lovely way to spend time together one on one, most spas offer afternoon tea or lunch packages too.
If she’s a nature lover, why not take her to one of the most stunning counties in the UK? Visit Breamish Valley where you can stay in one of the Northumberland cottages with a hot tub. Relax with a glass of bubbly and explore local villages and countryside walks.
I am a huge fan of practical gifts, something that can be used most days, the thought that I have helped in a little way makes me smile and knowing she is using the gift makes it worth every penny!
Birdcage umbrellas are perfect for the UK’s unpredictable weather. The shape of the brolly gives extra protection from the rain and a transparent dome canopy is great for being able to see what’s ahead. Pick one in her favourite pattern or colour to put a smile on her face.
If she’s always checking in with her friends online, why not get her a personalised phone case? Create a unique design that matches your mum’s personality and fashion and surprise her on the special day. Or, you could get a phone case with your favourite photo printed on so that she can see a picture of you two every time she brings out her phone!
A thoughtful gift for the home is guaranteed to cheer up your mum on Mother’s Day. I am a huge home gift lover and would never turn my nose up at new tea towels or pans – yes, call me strange but if its something I don’t have to go out and buy myself then that is a great gift in my eyes!
OR how about a digital photo frame? Upload your favourite photos to an SD memory card or USB stick and let your mum sit back and enjoy the slide show. This is also a perfect gift for grandmas who would love to see lots of pictures of their family!
Most mum’s love to have their home smelling lovely, so consider a luxury candle. Jo Malone has an extensive range of fancy for-the-home candles with unique smells that you won’t find anywhere else.

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
