Themes to try when buying a gift for your Mum
There are a few themes that keep coming up when looking at Mother’s Day presents – so let’s look at each of these in turn, as these may give you some gift giving inspiration as well.
#1 – Keepsake from little kids
A mum loves her kids, of course! – and so anything that they make, create, or is part of them, would be the perfect way to celebrate on Mothers Day.
Some great ideas for these would be: –
- Something with their fingerprint on – jewellery works well
- Artwork they’ve created – you can get this printed on a cushion and other things..
- Their handwriting on something – this makeup bag is brilliant!
- A card they’ve made themselves
- Record them on your phone doing a song, talking about why they love their mummy etc…
- A picture of them together
#2 – Help from older kids
Mums are busy, and time poor – in general.
And older children don’t necessarily have money to spend on a gift themselves – even if they want to get something.
So – making these two work together means that older kids could give the gift of time to their Mum, by helping them with something.
Some options for this would be: –
- Book of vouchers of tasks that they promise to do (make a cup of coffee, wash the car, clean the dishes etc…)
- Offer to babysit the younger kids if they’re old enough
- Promise to go to bed early one night so mum can have a movie night / date night / girls night etc…
- Offer to do errands for a day
TOP TIP – If you’re on a budget then you could make the book of vouchers yourself instead of buying one.
#3 – Adult children ideas
As an adult – getting something nice for a Mother’s Day gift means just as much to your mum – so take some time to really think about what they may like.
And it doesn’t have to cost much at all
In fact – a lot of the time, mums want to spend time with their children, and/or relax from the usual daily grind – so think along those lines and you won’t go far wrong!
Treat them to an afternoon tea with you, a day out, or sign you both up to a class to learn something that they love (candle making, perfume making, flower arranging etc…).
What does your mum love doing, and what can you do with her?
If you’re far away from her location wise – then spending time may be harder, but you can still create time together by getting on a video call and playing a game, having a weekly chat time set up etc…
#4 – A celebration of being a Mum
Showing your love for you mum doesn’t have to be completely personalised.
You CAN find some fantastic gift ideas that celebrate Motherhood – that feel personal to you as the sentiment is there.
Plus – they may not all be sentimental – you might find the perfect funny one instead!
Some ideas for these types of presents would be: –
- Mother’s Day Card
- Clothes (t-shirts or sweatshirts with slogans work well)
- Photo Frame
#5 – Anything personalised for your Mum particularly
Along the same theme as #4 – a perfect Mother’s Day gift idea would be anything that celebrates her as a Mum but also adds a more personalised touch – such as your birth date, your initials etc…
Similar items are available for this, including: –
I hope there’s something in this list that’s inspired you for your own Mother’s Day gift this year (or when getting them for your kids to give to their Mum!)
I know as a Mum myself that these would all be very well received – and are all thoughtful in their own personal way.
But whatever you’re doing to celebrate – have a lovely Mothering Sunday!
