Gift guide for Mothers day 2018

Hello guys,

So Mothers Day is fast approaching and I don’t know about you but I’ve always been a fan of celebrating both my parents and showing them some love. I try and do this all year round, but I think it’s particularly important to show them a little extra love on Mothers day and Fathers Day.

I have never struggled to buy for my mum, whether it’s because we have similar tastes or because I think she is easy to buy for I don’t know. However I know my brother finds it difficult to buy presents for our mum and other people find it difficult too. So I thought I would create a little gift guide on where I would be looking for good mothers day presents.



Groupon is perfect for taking your mum out for the day to do an activity together or to spend some quality time together if you don’t see her as often as you like. I often buy afternoon tea vouchers or spa vouchers from Groupon and I’m sure a lot of mums would appreciate this as it’s something you can do together. It’s difficult to share what offers there are as most of them are specific to your area. So I’ve included the link to the website if you want to have a look here. Vouchers I’ve used before include countless afternoon teas, escape rooms, meals out, nights away, cinema tickets and so many more!

This can be an inexpensive thoughtful present from you to your mum. Last year I bought a photo frame that could fit 3 photos and ordered photos of my mum and I to put in it. You can get photo frames anywhere these days but mine was from M&S and the photos were from snapfish (they usually have an offer on).

Quality time

If your mum is working or looking after others still, treat her to some time with her feet up whilst you cook her a meal, run her a bath, light some candles and then watch a film together. You can find a few recipes on my blog such as Thai Duck, Paella or chicken and mushroom risotto  that would be perfect to make your mum whilst she relaxes with a glass of wine.


If you don’t have time to physically see your mum on mothers day… maybe you don’t live close by or you lead an active life then I’ve rounded up a few great present ideas ranging from £5-£50. I’ve tried to cover different shops and different interests so hope you find some inspiration below.

– Cath Kidston (Also free mothers day card when your purchase is over £15)


– Debenhams


– Jo Malone


– Next






If you are a mother or are celebrating your mum’s mothers day, happy mothers day!
