I can still remember Mother’s Day from last year. We were at the start of the lockdown and I felt a little better knowing what was going to happen, after a week of uncertainty and loss of control. My hubby bought me a hoody and I had breakfast in bed. That hoody became my safety blanket for the whole lockdown; I lived in it and even now when I wear it, I think back to those days last year.We may still be in lockdown for Mother’s Day 2021 too but I think with a little light at the end of the tunnel, things do feel a little easier I love putting together my Mother’s Day gift ideas, as have received some lovely things.
Hope they give you some ideas, if you know you are going to get a treat.
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Just reading that sentence makes me so excited. It has been so long since I have had a spa treatment. This amazing Spa Day and 55 Minute Treatment and Afternoon Tea from Buyagift would make a Mum very happy!

Marine Miracle Cream from Transformulas
I have a liney face. I blame my Dad’s side of the family. I know there isn’t a lot I’m going to be able to do about that but every little helps right?
I was pretty keen to include any face cream with “miracle” in the title. I’m sure many Mums would be happy with this Marine Miracle Cream from Transformulas. Rich in marine algae, giant sea kelp and sea salt extracts renowned for their transformative skin enhancing properties. With continued use, skin looks and feels firmer, fine lines and wrinkles are minimised and skin is more cushioned and softened. Sounds pretty good! This RRPs at £69.
I was also sent some Marine Miracle Eyezone which RRPs at £34. As specified online,
“Minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness with our nutrient-rich repairing eye concentrate. A lightweight texture with a acutely powerful formulation, a combination of our hero signature marine plant extracts and five times ultra-concentrated 5x ALDAVINE™ which is proven to increase cell regeneration, hydrates and moisturises, de-ageing and smoothing the skin around the eye area for a visible difference.”
I’m looking forward to testing these out!
The Amazfit GTS 2e
I love tracking my steps and health. Mainly so I can compete with my husband but also for my own peace of mind.
I was therefore VERY excited to be offered an Amazfit GTS 2e to include as part of my Mother’s Day Gift Guide this 2021. There are so many amazing features to this. It has a 1.65inch HD AMOLED screen, which is comparable to the latest smartphones! It is available in Argos and currently retails at £99.
I chose a lilac purple variation. Some of the features include:
- Monitors Blood Oxygen Saturation levels
- All-day heart rate monitoring and a warning for abnormal levels
- Stress Level Monitoring
- Sleep Quality Monitoring
- Voice Assistance and call answering
- 90 in-built sports modes
- Waterproof for 50 metres
- Extended battery life
- Of course tracks steps, calories, allows you to track the weather and allow you to set timers and alarms.
I’m getting to know the Amazfit GTS 2e but so far I love what I see and will be looking forward to using it back in the gym when the time comes.
I was of course most impressed by the amazing screens you can choose. I’m a huge colour and cartoony style fan, so I loved this immediately! There is so much choice to suit your style.
Surprise Figurine by Willow Tree from Willow Tree Gift
I love Willow Tree figurines from Willow Tree Gift and have a couple already. I remember we received one when we got married and I kindly was gifted another for a previous gift guide. This Mother’s Day I was thrilled to be sent this Surprise Figurine.
It retails at £22 and is really beautiful and has a height of 14cm. Perfect as a surprise gift for someone. The figure includes a gift tag with sentiment ‘A bouquet of wonderful wishes’.
Willow Tree offer figurines for so many occasions and can mark the birth of a child, symbolise love and family.
Peter Rabbit Bamboo Travel Mug by Beatrix Potter from Enesco
I’m hoping we are going to start travelling a bit soon! Even if it is just down the motorway to see a friend! A travel mug is always a useful, eco-friendly thing to have. I love this Peter Rabbit design on this bamboo travel mug from Enesco.
It retails at £16.99 and is made from mixed materials: The inside of the mug is made from stainless steel, with an outer Bamboo wrap and a plastic lid. The lid of the mug has a movable section suitable for drinking. It is 17.5cm tall. It does need to be upright at all times.

I’m a big fan of jewellery but I also like something unique and that has meaning to it. When I was offered to feature an El Camino bracelet in the guide I was very keen. These are perfect for travel-loving Mothers (when we are allowed to travel!).

I love it, as it’s really unique!
The Tired Mama Gift Set From Hot Tea Mama
I remember how tired I was when I first had my babies. I remember the lack of sleep and just wanting to relax and chill the moment they were asleep.
It includes 1 x Mother’s Are Magic Mug, 1 x Night Owl Tea, 1 x Get Up & Glow tea. Get Up & Glow is a caffeine free boost when another coffee might lead to heart palpitations. Night Owl tea helps to ease an anxious mind and aid deeper sleep.
Hot Tea Mama stocks a range of speciality teas and mugs, to aid breastfeeding, relaxation and even labour! They have some lovely gifts for the new mama, the mama to be and perfect for Mother’s Day too!
Blossoms in Spring Illuminating Day Cream from Little Butterfly
I love a decent face cream for the day; a lovely base I can put some make-up on (well if I’m wearing any, as not really right now!).
“Lightweight yet highly effective, our organic-certified cream works to counteract hyperpigmentation, uneven, fatigued or dull looking skin. With youth-boosting bio-actives, botanical extracts and vitamins, it offers intense hydration, promotes cell recovery and renews from within – unveiling incredible softness, smoothness and glow.

OGGS® Zesty Lemon Cake
I love cake. My whole family loves cakes and I know a lot of Mums would love some on Mother’s Day this year! I was very happy to feature an OGGS® Zesty Lemon Cake.
This lemon spongecake filled with a lemon frosting. Made with sustainable palm oil, it is also suitable for vegans. It is available in Waitrose.
Gym Leggings from MFB Activewear
I love leggings and especially funky designs, that I can wear in the gym. I was really excited to be sent a pair of gym leggings from MFB Activewear.
I chose these Luscious Leopard leggings in a size 10. They retail at £37 and made from super soft recycled material; 75% Recycled Polyester, 25% Elastane. The leggings range in sizes from 6 to 22 and a 3 inch waist band which stays up well. There is a zip pocket, suitable for most phones and for every pair sold, a tree is planted.
I was so impressed. I usually have issues pulling leggings on, as they can feel tight but these fit perfectly. I can’t wait to get back to the gym!
Dight Women’s Waterproof Parka from TOG 24
I’ll be honest, I’m not the most practical person at all and I often don’t think about a good waterproof or wellies. This is actually ridiculous too, as I have been spending quite a lot of this winter outdoors.
When I was offered an item from TOG 24 to include in my guide, I really loved this Dight Women’s Waterproof Parka. It currently retails at £100, as reduced. The colour is rose pink and beautiful. It is designed to keep you dry and warm and has a shaped hood that can be adjusted by toggles. It has large flap pockets and 2 secure zip up pockets in the chest. The inside is padded and quilted in a contemporary wave-pattern design that feels luxuriously cushioned and warm. It also carries the iconic TOG24 Yorkshire Rose badge on the sleeve. The coat is 100% polyester.
As specified online:
TOG24 stands for “Truth Over Glory Everyday”. We’re not about the “Glory” side of the outdoors; Planting flags on mountains or skiing down sheer ice walls, we’re about the “True” outdoors that everybody can be involved with; walking with friends to the pub or skiing with the family to a bar.
They stock all clothes and accessories to help you enjoy being outdoors.
Lounge Leggings from Love Leggings
I actually wonder when I will ever stop wearing leggings to chill in, as well as the gym after this lockdown. I am a huge fan of Love Leggings, as have featured their products before. They have a great range including leggings for fitness, everyday wear, leggings and maternity. They are soft, comfortable and completely non-see-through.
This time I was after a pair of black lounge leggings for everyday wear. These retail at £30 and come in sizes 6-38. They are ribbed with a high waistband and they have 4-way stretch fabric which moves with you for the ultimate in comfort and coverage. They are designed to fit and flatter.
I love them! They are soft and comfortable. I could easily run after the kids in them too.
A Luxury Twines Selection Box from Rope Source
Twine can be brilliant for crafting and for the Mum who loves to craft, would make a lovely gift. I’ve used twine for scrapbooking and card making in the past.
These Luxury Twine Selection boxes from Rope Source retail at £8.94 are made from a chunky cotton twine, a thicker alternative to the standard baker’s twine and are 100% cotton.
The Rope Source stocks a large selection of rope and twines, so worth a nosey of you love to craft.
I’ve received some truly lovely bits this 2021 for Mother’s Day and I hope this guide has given you some inspiration too!
