Just realised that Mother’s Day is right around the corner? This year, the annual day of celebrating our wonderful Mum’s falls on Sunday 22nd March. If you’re wondering how to make this year extra special, we’ve put together a list of ideas of what to get your mum for Mother’s Day and how to really spoil her.
Because You Can’t Beat Breakfast in Bed
It’s a classic that never gets old. Whether it’s hot boiled eggs and soldiers, maple-syrup covered pancakes or french toast and fresh berries, who doesn’t love the surprise of breakfast in bed? Though, if your mum is in need of a lay-in, brunch in bed works too!
To make your gesture even more memorable, you can serve your mum’s favourite mug of Tea or Coffee in her very own monogram mug. These Letterpress mugs are the perfect personalised pressie. Each Letterpress mug comes packaged within a beautiful circular gift box and at £15 it’s a great value gift solution.
And Relax… All You Need for a Spa Day at Home
Let’s be honest, parents are heroes. And all that heroism is pretty exhausting. Whether the kids are still kids, or supposedly all grown up, being a mum is a job for life and these women will always be worthy of some R and R. Why not surprise your mum with a spa day at home? Aside from some relaxing music, a bath, a few of her favourite magazines and a big cup of tea (or wine, it’s your spa), you’ll need some lovely products to make her feel spoilt.
Choosing something from Magic Organic Apothecary is a great way to give something to your mum and give back at the same time. MOA create natural and organic skincare products, made in England, inspired by old herbal folklore and with a sprinkling of magic! For each gift set sold they plant a tree through Rising Forests. Made with carefully selected botanical ingredients to improve wellbeing and to practice a simple, yet effective daily skin care ritual. MOA formulas are cruelty free, do not use petrochemicals (mineral oil), parabens, SLS, phthalates, fillers or artificial fragrance and some products are entirely plant based and suitable for vegans. The Energising Body Oil will brighten her day, this energising, zesty body oil, is full of active organic ingredients for healthy and vibrant skin.
For Mum’s who love Animals
Maybe, instead of asking “what shall I get my mum for Mother’s Day”, you’re actually thinking what would the dog or cat get for their Mum? Whether she is Dog Lady or a Cat Lady, we’ve got the perfect gift sorted! The Book of the Dog is a beautifully illustrated book with a quirky collection of dog art and illustrations by artists around the world. The Book of the Cat is a cool and quirky collection of feline art and illustration by artists from around the world.
For the Eco Conscious Mum
For an eco conscious gift and for coffee lovers these Ecoffee cups at just £10 each make a great gift and help to save the planet at the same time, happy days! Each year more than 300 billion single-use cups are manufactured. Less than 2% are recycled. With an Ecoffee Cup, choosing to re-use every single day has never been easier, bright and beautiful to drink from, with no plastic aftertaste. Made from Bamboo and corn starch with no animal derived product, these come with a silicone lid & sleeve. We’ve got six fantastic colours to choose from!
For the Fashion Conscious Mum
If your mum likes to be stylish, but is mindful of keeping Textile & Fashion waste to a minimum, then our Salvaged Denim Star Tote Bags with a super cool oversized Star print could be just the ticket! These totes are made from salvaged organic cotton & recycled plastic bottles, designed & printed in the Uk too. Available in bright neon colours and Gold & Silver glitter these totes made from trash are super stylish!
For Plant Addicts
Don’t just buy her flowers, make it a plant instead! It’s a fact that Plants make people happy and help to purify the air we breathe. With a bit of love & nurturing (just like our Mum’s do) a plant can bring a happy vibe to your home. Choose a plant (only available in our stores), Macrame Hanger or super cool Hand Painted Pot from our Green & Wild collection.
You’re all set to turn your Mother’s Day gift into a grand gesture with these thoughtful ideas. And don’t forget a Mother’s Day Card she can keep re-reading, we have plenty of designs to choose from, everything from heartfelt messages to cards that celebrate the funny side of life. Let’s celebrate the mums out there, because they’re pretty damn great!
