10 unique Mother’s Day gift ideas

From sweet treats to special keepsakes, we've got 10 unusual Mother's Day gifts to delight your mum (or start hinting for yourself)


If you’re looking for extra special gift ideas this Mother’s Day (or even hinting at something for yourself), we’ve hand picked a selection of presents that are sure to go down a treat on 14th March 2021.


From stylish stationery to sweet treats and sentimental keepsakes, we’ve selected a whole range of gifts for every taste starting from just £10.

Here’s our pick of the best unique Mother’s Day gifts…

1. Papier Personalised Notebooks, £19.99

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 favourite design, and customising with a name and title.

We love the look of these trendy leopard print designs available in array of colours from classic black and yellow, to a bright pink or green.

Available from: Papier

2. My Mum Poem Print, £15

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.

We also like that you can also add your own message in the bottom right corner, for a special personalised touch.

Available from: Not On The High Street

3. Afternoon Tea Biscuits and Cake Hamper Box, £33

Enjoy a whole load of afternoon tea treats this Mother’s Day with this delicious hamper featuring biscuits, shortbread, fruit cake and tea.

The hamper comes neatly packaged in a pink box so is a great option if you want lots of little treats in one gift. And for mums that like a glass of prosecco, there’s a ‘Prosecco Made Me Do It!’ hamper with chocolates and fizz for around the same price.

Available from: Amazon

4. Personalised Colouring Book, £9.99

Felt tips at the ready… 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 by adding their name, and a message, and keep an eye out for the name within the colouring sections!

5. Silver Dessert Spoon Gift Set, £34

personalised spoon

A chunky silver dessert spoon that can carry your own personalised message – perfect for mum’s who love a sweet treat.

We love how the gift set arrives in gorgeous packaging, tied in chiffon ribbon and wrapped in tissue paper. And if you’d like to give this as a keepsake, you can also buy a gift box with a polish cloth for an extra special touch.

Available from: Not On The High Street

6. Your Child’s Drawing Made Into A Necklace, £19.50

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?

All you have to do is send in a scan of your child’s drawing, which will be hand drawn onto the jewellery. We think this would make a lovely sentimental gift for grandmother’s from grandkids if you’re also celebrating Mother’s Day with them.

Available from: Etsy

7. Personalised ‘Mum’ Bottle Bud Vases, £26.75

These dinky vases would look great lined up on a windowsill or dotted around the house, with their subtle wreath design spelling out the word ‘MUM’.

There’s a few different personalisation options including ‘MUMMY’ or even ‘NAN’ and ‘GRANDMA’ for gifting to grandparents.

They’d make a great gift to give to your loved ones with a bunch of flowers to fill their vases.

Available from: Not On The High Street

8. Prestat Gin Truffles, £14.99

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!

The creamy white chocolate comes filled with a rich dark chocolate ganache, flavoured with gin and lemon & juniper berries. We also love the stunning green and gold packaging which adds to their luxury feel.

Available from: Amazon 

9. Personalised Family Portrait, from £20

We all know how hard it can be to get the perfect family photo, so this personalised drawing makes a great alternative gift.

It’s a lovely keepsake to give from the whole family – all you have to do is choose each family member’s stick figure outline and personalise with their clothing colours, hair and facial expressions.

Available from: Posterhaste

10. Grow It Bonsai Tree Gift, £15

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?
