4 Gift Ideas that Mums REALLY Want


Mother's Day doesn't have to be the only time of year where you show your mum / female mother figure how much you appreciate them. Of course it's an especially special time of year, but actually giving a gift on a random day throughout the year can be much more special.

But what gifts do us mums actually want? In this post I've put together a list of unique and innovative gifts that your mum / step-mum / nan / mum-friend would really love to receive. But remember, no matter what your financial plan is, they will appreciate and love whatever you give because it came from you.

Personalised Gifts

Personalised gifts are always a good idea. Whether it's pictures of you with you mum, grandchild, or even them with their own parents, it will become incredibly special. There are so many options to choose from as well - pillows, blankets, photograph albums, the list is endless! Sites such as Etsy and Not on the High Street are great for this type of gift.

Personalised jewellery is always a good idea. Not only is the gift super special but it can be passed down the generations if you chose good quality materials. A necklace with initials is a beautiful but simple choice, or you could get their favourite animal engraved instead. If your mum wears a watch why not have the back of their watch engraved with a special date or message - subtle but special. 

Likewise, you can gift a personalised t-shirt or hoodie to your mother. You can print a unique picture on the shirt or a customised message about your bond. Interestingly, several online portals help design customised shirts per your requirement; you can visit the URL here to learn more about their work. 

Beautiful Flowers

Nothing beats a bunch of beautiful flowers when it comes to showing someone how much you care. Cheerful tulips are an ideal choice as they come in all sorts of shades, or how about some lush lilies with their striking, large blooms. 

Of course most people have their favourite type of flowers, so definitely take this into consideration before making your choice - there's nothing worse than gifting a large bunch of the wrong flower! You can easily order flowers online now and have them delivered straight to the recipients door - perfect for when we can't see loved ones.

Bath Products

Most mums I know don't have much me-time (this is especially true for any new mamas out there), so gifting some luxurious bath products will give them the perfect excuse to find some time to relax. You can find some fantastic gift sets that include everything you need: bath bombs, face masks, hand creams... just remember to avoid overly perfumed products as these aren't usually the best. There are lots of sellers who made home-made products now too, so why not try supporting a small business while gift hunting.

'Mother' Clothing

I'm the proud owner of a few items of 'mum' clothing now. Not only are they comfortable and practical items to wear again and again, they let you proudly share the mama message. Of course this type of gift isn't going to be to everyone's taste so it's worth keeping this in mind. If this is the case you could gift an accessory such as a tote bag or makeup bag instead.
