With Valentine’s Day gone, it’s time to start thinking about spoiling that one other special person in your life; your mum. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, on the 31st March, getting in early on gift ideas is sure to save you a last-minute dash to the shops the day before. If you’re hoping to get your mum something a little different than the usual flowers and chocolates, there are plenty of options out there to really show your mum that you care.
For the Pampered Mum
What better way to treat your mum this Mother’s Day than with some new pampering products. Mums work hard, so they deserve all the me-time they can get. Rather than just going for the usual bath bomb or soap option, look instead at her favourite makeup brands and maybe get her a new shade of lipstick for example. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more luxurious, buying her a bottle of her favourite perfume is sure to make her feel appreciated and loved.
For the Adventurous Mum
Not every mum is into the whole afternoon tea thing. Some mums like a little more excitement and adventure in their lives. If you’re looking to give your mum the gift of fun, why not give her an experience day that she will always remember. Something activity based like ziplining or sports car driving is sure to satisfy the daredevil in her. Alternatively, something a little different, like a hot air balloon ride, will sweep her off her feet!
For the Foodie Mum
If your mum is a food fanatic, avoid that boring box of chocolates and instead take her on a cooking course. This is a great way for the two of you to spend the day together and both learn something new while you’re at it. If you’re looking for something a little less expensive, take a look at her cookbook collection and buy her one she doesn’t already have. She’ll love trying out the new recipes, plus, this shows that you have taken an interest in her hobbies.
For the Home Décor Obsessed Mum
Whenever you go around to your mum’s house, you always spot something new. Whether it’s a new cushion or a candle, this mum is always adding to their home décor collection. With Mother’s Day falling just after the official start of Spring, why not get her something like an outdoor tableware collection to use on those long summer nights that are hopefully approaching. For something a little more personal, opt for a beautiful photo frame with a family picture in it. This can sit on her mantlepiece or office desk and will add a heart-warming touch every day.
