If your mum is anything like mine (hi Mum!), flowers and chocolates just won’t cut it – so I’ve compiled a list of goodies to please mums of all types no matter how little time you have! It’s easy to get wrapped up in the cliché ideas that are thrown from every angle by card shops so I’ve tried to include some more unique ideas that should make mum’s day that little bit more special.
If you have forgotten and need a present in under 24 hours…
Two words, experience day. This is a perfect way to get an exciting present she’ll never forget in super quick time. You can browse a huge range of ideas from the traditional spa day to driving experiences (perfect if mum is more of a thrillseeker!). Here are some of my favourite ideas for various budgets:
If mum loves food…
If your mum is a big foodie then you definitely need to take her for brunch! There are so many incredible spots in London especially which make for the perfect morning out and if she likes the fizz then there’s always the boozy option available! This one is top of my list to visit soon… menu looks incredible and the restaurant itself looks amazing.

If you’re looking to get something with a more personal touch…
Sometimes Mum doesn’t want anything in particular, just something to show you put thought into the gift (and bag you some serious brownie points!) For gifts like this I always look to notonthehighstreet.com as so many things can be personalised, try some of these ideas and I guarantee you’ll put a huge smile on her face:
If you’ve got a big budget…
If you’re lucky enough to have money to splurge, why not treat Mum to something really special – here are some of my favourite picks:
Overnight stay at Alexander House Spa
Jo Malone bespoke gift builder
If you’ve got NO budget…
Like the personal touch above, sometimes you can make more of an impact by just putting a bit more thought into the gift and making something yourself. Try a few of these ideas which will save you a fortune but keep mum just as happy:
- How about buying one of these picture boards and pinning lots of memories as a keepsake mum can look at again and again?
- Or why not try baking some of her favourite goodies, try some of the ideas on my blog for inspiration like this, this or this!
Hopefully the ideas above give you at least something to start with when planning presents for Mother’s Day, even the little things count so there are no excuses!
