#ad these products were provided in exchange for featuring in this Mother’s Day gift guide. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I have to admit I do like Mother’s Day. Even if they don’t always go to plan, hubby is good at making me breakfast in bed and the grem always makes me a pretty card. I’m not as fussed about getting presents but it is nice to be spoilt and have some time with my girls (and this year maybe boy too!!!)
I love to come up with some ideas for Mother’s Day and here are some lovely ones for you to have a think about or perhaps to request for yourself. I have quite eclectic taste for sure!
1) The Book of Mum from The Book of Everyone
These books are so original and cool! I had one for my husband for his birthday and he absolutely loved. Each page is packed with facts and little nuggets of information. You can also personalise little bits so it special for your Mum this Mother’s Day, including the colour of the book.
If you choose a soft back book, they retail at £23.99 and this increases up to a deluxe edition at £39.99. There is also the option to record a personal message too, to make it extra special.
It’s such a different idea and really lovely.
2) Socks from Society Socks
If you are anything like me, I never buy socks, EVER. I end up wearing the same ones for years, so socks will always be welcomed as a gift for me.
Look no further than Society Socks.
Society Socks offer a men’s socks subscription service and gift sets for women. However for each pair sold, a pair is donated. So you receive 2 pairs monthly and 2 pairs are donated. The socks are custom-designed and the brand supports homeless charities across the USA and Canada.
Sock subscriptions start at £44 for three months. A women’s subscription is to launch soon!
3) Protein Balls from The Protein Ball Co
This may seem like quite a unique gift for Mother’s Day but as someone who a) trains and b) is quite often permanently hungry, I knew these protein balls would be a perfect gift for me.
The Protein Ball Co. is actually a subscription, £22 for a one off box or £18 a month, if you decide you would like regularly. Each bag contains 6 and some are vegan, others made of whey protein. Each bag contains 6 balls and they come in a variety of different flavours, including lemon and pistachio, cherry Bakewell and peanut butter and jam.
The balls are all gluten free, wheat free, vegetarian and contain no soy, GMO’s or added sugars. A perfect snack and each have 10g of protein.
I bet you know a few health and fitness Mums who would love a box!
4) Coffee from Extract
I’m not a huge coffee drinker but my Mum likes the odd cup and I know so many Mums cannot even function without a cup of coffee to start the day!
Extract Coffee Roasters supply all sorts of amazing flavours in whole bean or ground varieties. You can even get a monthly subscription. I decided to choose cast iron espresso and original espresso both priced at £6.95.
They smell amazing and would make a lovely gift for a Mum who loves their coffee and may need that caffeine hit. Well, we Mums are often very tired!!
5) Maternity Leggings from Love Leggings
Do you know any ladies that do not wear leggings at some point? They are the most comfortable clothing ever and so versatile. When I was offered a pair of not just leggings but maternity leggings from Love Leggings I was thrilled, as totally running out of clothes in my last few weeks of pregnancy.
I chose a pair of long black maternity leggings which retail at £13.50.
Love Leggings have loads of choice for your leggings needs including for general wear, sports, children and tights too. They come in varying lengths and colours and are very reasonable priced.
Practical and stylish!
6) Moroccan Hammam Spa gift pack from Vie Naturals
I love anything spa related, as I get to go to one so infrequently! I was very keen on trying out the Vie Healthcare’s NEW Moroccan Hammam Spa gift pack. It is currently on Amazon for £18.95.
The set includes Beldi Black Soap with Eucalyptus (200g), Rhassoul Clay (200g) from the Atlas Mountains and Argan Oil (50ml), all sourced from Morocco. This gives an authentic Hammam experience, one of the oldest cleansing traditions in the world.
It’s a lovely set and a a really unique gift so make your skin feeling amazing. Brilliant for any Mums who like a bit of luxury and the feeling of being on holiday.
7) Treats from The Mighty Fine Honeycomb Dip
From Mighty Fine and available as bite-size chunks to share (or not) and a snack bar, this light and delicate treat is not only made from the most natural ingredients but also vegetarian and gluten-free.
The light & crisp honeycomb is made with British honey and covered in a variety of the finest ingredients from luxurious dark chocolate to salted caramel, so there’s bound to be a favourite for everyone.
- Belgium Milk Chocolate 30g bars £1 & 90g dips £2.50
- Belgium Dark Chocolate 30g bars £1 & 90g dips £2.50
- Salted Caramel 30g bars £1 & 90g dips £2.50.
We tasted these and they were scrummy. I have a feeling if I give to my Mum my step-Dad will be stealing! My hubby pinched quite a lot.
A delicious gift for your Mum!!
8) Underwear from Modibodi
Period and leak proof underwear means no more sanitary towels or tampons, which saves money and and is great for the environment. These undies come in a range of colours and styles. Each pair are made with natural fibres and are only 3mm thick, for comfort. They are made with moisture wicking material which absorbs quickly and leaves you odour free.
Prices start at £18.
9) Red Letter Day Experience
I love an experience day and to be honest since having the little ones, I don’t feel I get enough time to go and do something with my Mum. This is where a Red Letter Day Experience may be perfect. Also, you may not be keen on buying a material item as a gift and would prefer to do something, that involves quality time with your Mum.
There are so many choices, including spa days, afternoon tea, hotel stays, driving experiences, jewellery making and dining out to name a few! You have 10 months to book after receiving your experience and there are free exchanges.
Personally I love an afternoon tea and will be hoping to take my Mum out for one, after my little baby is born. I’ll be able to get that little glass of fizz that comes with it!
10) Three Mills Reserve Wine
Although, as I write this I am still pregnant by Mother’s Day I am hoping to be able to have a little tipple. These wine varieties from Three Mills Reserve Wine are a lower alcoholic, at 10.5%. This may be perfect for me when it will have been a long time since I had a proper drink!
Three Mills is named after the old three tower windmills that used to be adjacent to the Norfolk winery. There are red, white and rose varieties and all three are vegan and vegetarian. Perfect to enjoy with a Mother’s Day meal.
You can purchase these from Asda and B&M and they are priced at around £3-4.
11) Quilted Hanging Toiletry Organiser from Ellis James Designs
I love to organise my toiletries. Now and then I go a little crazy and want to be more organised and make sure what I am keeping is what I am actually using!!
This is the same when I travel. I don’t like having my products rolling around in my bag, as I have had some bad experiences when certain things have leaked everywhere!
This quilted Hanging Toiletry Organiser from Ellis James Designs is perfect for me! You can purchase it on Amazon for £26.95. It has a large capacity and can fit all of your beauty accessories, cosmetics, shaving kit, shampoo, hair dryer and straighteners fit with ease. It’s 12 x 9 x 6 Inches in size.
12) Hand painted wine glass by Designs by Lolita
I adore anything bright and colourful and combine it with a glass of wine, then I’m in heaven. I knew my Mum would be too.
This stunning hand-painted wine glass from Designs by Lolita is perfect for Mums to tell them how you feel and also to raise a glass for them on Mother’s Day. It retails at £19.95.
Each is hand-painted so there will be some slight variations. It comes in a presentation box and is hand-wash only
Designs by Lolita have many other designs for other occasions such as birthdays and Valentine’s Day. They also provide different glasses such as cocktail and gin glasses. So much choice and they are beautiful.
I can’t wait to give to my Mum.

14) A Dumbo Mug from Paladone
I am so excited for the new Dumbo film to come out. I loved the original as a child, so any merchandise for me would be a fabulous gift.
I was sent this beautiful Dumbo shaped mug from Paldone and I am very chuffed with it, so much, that I am keeping it for myself! These are available to pre-order now.
Paladone have such a variety of unique gifts to chose from, including Disney, Harry Potter, Marvel and Nintendo.
Check them out!
15) A Slogan Tee from Ada and Alfred.
I am always so impressed when busy Mums set up their own businesses and work from home. The dedicated and time this takes is amazing and the products are usually so original and unique. Buying a Mother’s Day gift from a small business is always so personal in my mind.
Ada and Alfred is run by Mum of 2 lovely boys, Alex.
There are so many cool slogan tees and sweaters to choose from, all helping you get through the amazing, exhausting journey that is motherhood! The designs are funny, relatable and inspiring.
Ada and Alfred also stocks kidswear.
I was sent this fab slogan tee. It just defines what being a Mother is all about. It is available in white, graphite or olive green. Other specifications include:
- 100% cotton.
- Ribbed collar.
- Taped neck.
- Shaped side seams.
It retails at £14 which I think is really reasonable! If you want to support Ada and Alfred this Mother’s Day, head on over.
I hope my guide has given you some ideas of how you can treat your Mum or to be treated yourself!
Have a lovely Mother’s Day!
