Some of these items have been gifted for exchange of coverage.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, lots of shops will be stocking up on those little teddies and mugs.
So, what can you get your mum if you are on the lookout for something than the mass-produced items?
Here are some of my favourite picks
Mia Tui is my favourite brand of bags ever since I reviewed a bag from them when I had first started blogging way back in 2011. Since then I have grown my collection and now have 5 bags from their collection. All of their bags are practical, fantastic quality and fun colours too.
This Mother’s Day they have a great choice of offers for mums too.
Now if your mum is a bit of a foodie then this set is for her. There are lots of great recipes out there now and with easy access to it, many of us are experimenting a little more at home with the food we cook.
Not only is this set practical with ramen recipes included but the set itself is stunning! This handmade bowl is imported from Japan and the designs on them are just beautiful.
I am looking forward to using these and trying out a few of the Raman recipes in the book. If you love the look of these Ramen bowl’s you can see the full range of products here.
Personalised Map Jigsaw Coasters
These coasters bring a little bit of fun but are also likely to be used in most houses!
If you have decided against the Mum mugs as your mum has her favourite but are looking for a little gift that she will love, these coasters are the perfect gift.
They can be personalised for any address in mainland Great Britain and slot together like a jigsaw, whilst you can still use them as your coasters.
I loved these as I think they are quirky and fun yet practical at the same time.A day out with Red Letter Day
Sometimes your mum may have everything she needs however you probably still would like to make her feel special.
If you are struggling for ideas, why not treat her to a spa day out or maybe a facial at a local beauty salon?
Red Letter Day has a huge selection of gift ideas for you to pick from and there is something to suit everyone!
Hempz Aromabody Blueberry, Lavender & Chamomile Body Silk
If mum is a fan of looking after herself then this body silk is the perfect gift! The aromatic Blueberry Lavender & Chamomile fragrance helps comfort and relax the senses making it the perfect cream to use before bed. The blueberry extract is enriched with natural anti-inflammatory properties helps hydrate and renew skin’s healthy radiance
It smells amazing and it makes your skin super soft, this is a little touch of luxury I’m sure any mum will love!
Not everyone is a fan of alcohol or maybe you are avoiding it due to medical reasons or even pregnancy. Whatever your choice maybe there is the perfect alternative for those who are fans of the taste of wine and other sophisticated forms of alcohol.
This drink is a unique British-made natural, dry, sparkling non-alcoholic drink that contains the beneficial elements of Prelixir®, a unique blend of vitamins, minerals and amino acids which alcohol is known to deplete. This unique element means that Botonique is able to provide anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, alkalising, detoxifying and hydrating benefits.
So, if you are looking for a nice drink to share over that special meal on Mother’s day, why not check this out.
Ok, I completely understand at this point you are confused as to why I am mentioning buying your mum a pair of socks. However what if I told you they are super soft socks made from a sustainable blend of bamboo and cotton. More than that though with every purchase you are helping some of the most endangered animals in the world. For example, the limited edition Borneo orangutan socks I received would help to protect 80 square metres of Borneo rainforest habitat.
There are another 4 designs, with each one helping protect another animal. You can read more about the charities they support here.
They are also launching baby socks soon with the aim to protect some of the world’s most critically endangered baby animals. Head to their website for more details on this.
After a busy day running around, most mum’s would appreciate the chance to have a quiet evening relaxing in the bath in peace. Why not help her do this with this perfect gift set from Baylis & Harding.
This set contains a100ml body wash, 100ml hand & body lotion, 75g bath soak crystals and a white ladies dressing gown, everything you need for a little TLC. It not only looks amazing though, but it also smells amazing too and I know it will be a huge hit with any lucky mum to receive this.
Three Mills Reserve wine
If you are looking for a wine that won’t blow the budget this Mother’s day but is also low in alcohol, you need to check out the range from Three Mills Reserve. With 10.5% ABV, it is the perfect treat on its own or with a special meal.
Their range comes in white, red or rosé making it perfect for any variety of dishes you may be having and is perfect for all taste buds. Three Mills Reserve comes from over 50 years of tradition and craftsmanship at the winery and they know what they are doing!
This gift idea is a little different and a great way to treat your mum and give to a great cause too!
Taking place on the 1st June, The Supercar Event is raising money for The Children’s Trust charity, helping children with brain injury.
The event offers the chance to experience exhilarating rides in world-class supercars, as well as a wide range of fun-filled attractions and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. From helicopter rides to Caterham Sevens, younger guests can also have their first driving experience with the Stay Safe Driving School (age 14 and above).
It can be a great day out for the whole family whilst doing something for an amazing cause.
Personalised Mother’s Day Scented Diffuser
I love scented items such as candles and diffusers and this one is a great way for you to personalise it for your mum.
