Date for your diary: March 11th!
The day to celebrate your mum and be celebrated if you are one.
I don’t think it should be an occasion where you break the bank, but instead find thoughtful gifts that show your mother you care.
Need some ideas?
Then step this way….
Home made gifts are a great way to show love, natural health and beauty provider Naissance, offer a range of gifts and make your own kits which would suit those who want to give special hand-made gifts to the women in their lives this Mothers Day. Most are priced at under £20, so are good value for money and they look great visually!
- Make your own lip balm kits
- Make your own bath bomb kits
Lip Balm kit: £16.99
The ‘make your own’ kits are an ideal gift for mothers day as they work as a luxury treat but are also an easy and fun activity to make with children.
Continuing on the personal theme, check out these gorgeous personalised poems
, created by the lovely Kat. Kat uses her talents to write personalised framed poems. All you need to do is provide some background info on the person they want the poem for and she writes it into a poem and frames it.
It’s totally bespoke for each person.
I LOVE mine! Which is under wraps until I present it to my mother in a couple of weeks.
The gift of Flowers…
Flowers are a traditional Mothering Sunday gift, the downside to them being that they don’t live on forever.
In contrast, Vases do.
Add a real piece of sophistication to your bouquet by gifting your mother a Dartington Crystal Vase.
Having recently celebrated their 50th anniversary, Dartington Crystal have years of experience in creating high quality glassware and their vases are example of this.
Beautiful aren’t they – are something that can be treasured forever.

Unique clothing creations
Love Tree Design
have some incredible gift ideas for mothers day. You can shop for treats for both mother and child.
This is my new favourite sweater! You can adapt it to the year of your child’s birth. Mine reads 2006!
It is soft against your skin, and just reminds you how much you really are in love with your children (even though I could gleefully run away from mine at times.)
With a whole section on Mother’s Day
, you can find something for everyone in this beautiful boutique.
Head over to Parks Candle to get a beautifully packaged gift, that contains a sweet sensation of smells for you to burn in your home.
This gorgeous wild Fig, Cassis and Orange Blossom tot set is stunning and will delight any mother in March.
Wild fig is uniquely sweet and fruity, but with a piquant note. It can be mistaken for mint, but betrays this with a richer, earthier overall tone more similar to jasmine. It is widely considered to be a calming fragrance.Cassis (blackcurrant) blends in easily, adding a sense of youthful exuberance and speaks of harmony and balance.
Orange blossom combines with the fig and cassis tones to add spice to the mix, adding beautiful balance to the overall effect. The sprightly scent is reminiscent of Mediterranean foliage and lazy Sunday afternoons in the sun.
These tiny candles are all hand crafted and formulated to hold their scent for years, so they will remain as fresh as the day they were poured, ready when you are.
The Parks Wild Fig, Cassis and Orange Blossom 3 Tots Gift Set ships in a presentation-quality gift box.
Continuing with making your mum’s home smell perfect, have a look at the Room Diffuser and candle from the Mummy Bee collection. Made from natural ingredients, protecting bees and their habitats, creating smells that beautify your home.
The Mummy Bee collection is perfect for a new mum or mum to be.
Other gift ideas can be seen on the site, but here is a taster….
Creating a hamper of treats
A great idea for Mother’s day is to group a selection of small gifts together to make a beautiful hamper of goodies; you can include;
This beautiful Fired Earth Black Tea & Jasmine 2 wick candle. I have one sitting on my hearth and it is beautiful and smells divine. If you share my candle obsession you want to get one of these for your home.
The scent was created by blending amber, labdanum, cedar, patchouli, spices and geranium with a slight twist of black tea. Featuring essential oils such cedarwood, clove leaf, eucalyptus, geranium, guaicwood, lemon & patchouli, this scented candle oozes luxury in both looks and scent.
Any hamper worth its salt needs to have a little bit of gin in it!
Compliment a sweet smelling house, with an all-natural, holistic Ayurvedic beauty product. I have recently become a huge fan of the smoothing cellulite body lotion. Beautifully rich in pure ayurvedic herbal extracts. It contains active ingredients that are traditionally used to maintain the natural microcirculation and the tissue drainage. Perfect to add some luxury to your hamper.
No hamper can be complete with chocolates!
Guylian belgian chocolates are the only choice for my family!
A hamper can also include some great healthy boosts, ensure your mother is getting her vitamins, by gifting her some! NutriZing
has a great range and is dedicated to providing people with high quality health and nutrition supplements for an all-round healthy life.
Complete the hamper with a touch of relaxation, found in this Arnica Bath O.
As a luxurious dual-purpose balm, it’s perfect for pouring into a bath to create a gorgeous fragrance that will help busy mums to relax and unwind after a hectic day. The natural properties of Arnica montana extract and sweet scents of Lavender and Grapefruit essential oils are ideal for calming senses and melting away tension.
It’s also enriched with Evening Primrose and Sweet Almond oil making it the perfect pampering treat.
