Unique Mother’s Day gift ideas

10 original ideas for presents to delight your mum (or start hinting for yourself)


Papier Personalised Notebooks

Why we love it: You can’t go wrong with a stylish notebook for a gift (or a Mother’s Day treat for yourself). Make it special by picking your fave design, and customising with your own name or title…


What it costs: £12.99, from Papier


My Mum Poem Print

Why we love it: You don’t need to have a way with words to make your mum well up this Mother’s Day, because you can purchase a unique-to-your-mum poem, have it framed and delivered to your door.

What it costs: £15+, from Not On The High Street


Personalised Tiger Print Scarf

Why we love it: You can’t go wrong with a scarf. They’ll tart up any outfit and cover everything from a splodge of your toddler’s ‘artwork’  to the remnants of baby sick from that episode at lunchtime.

But there’s more… it can be personalised with any name or initial. Now that’s thoughtful.

What it costs: £15, from Not On The High Street


Personalised Colouring Book

Why we love it: No longer just for children, colouring for adults is the way to relax unwind. Anti-stress art therapy calms the mind and keeps the hands busy – like a kind of meditation. Colouring for 20 minutes a day is a highly creative way to free the mind, improve focus and help you relax.

Make it unique to your mum (or yourself) by adding your name, and a message – keep an eye out for the name within the colouring sections!

Felt tips at the ready…

personalised spoon

Silver Dessert Spoon Gift Set

Why we love it: A chunky silver dessert spoon that can carry your own personalised message – perfect for pudding lovers! Arrives tied in chiffon ribbon and wrapped in tissue paper.

What it costs: £34, from Not On The High Street


Your Child’s Drawing Made Into A Necklace

Why we love it: You could go for a classic piece of jewellery, and it’d be just as special. But why not immortalise some of your tot’s scribbles in a keepsake you could treasure forever?

What it costs: £19.50, from Etsy


‘Mum’ Bottle Bud Vases

Why we love it: These dinky vases would look great lined up on a windowsill or dotted around the house. Can also be personalised with your own special message.

What it costs: £26.75, from Not On The High Street


Prestat Gin Truffles

Why we love it: A nice bottle of gin is a great present – but what if you fancy putting a spin on it? There’s a whole range of tempting truffle flavours from Prestat but we’re after the London Gin Truffles in particular! Classic Sea Salt Caramel Truffles also wouldn’t go amiss. HINT.

What it costs: £14, from John Lewis

Lush Mum Gift Box

Lush ‘Mum’ Gift Box

Why we love it: Smellies are always a winner and this rosy set from Lush is all about taking the time to relax. We especially like the fact it contains the fabled lavender Sleepy lotion.

Ideal for new mums or mums who love a cheeky nap ?

What it costs: £32.95, from Lush


Grow It Bonsai Tree Gift

Why we love it: Is your mum a keen gardener? Perhaps she’s got a dull office, or the kitchen’s in need of some sparkle? Does she love a project? Then we’d say consider buying her a Grow Your Own tree!

What’s more unique (or unexpected) than a tree your mum can nurture from scratch?

What it costs: £15, from Urban Outfitters
