Mother’s Day is the one day of the year when we get to show our mums just how much they mean to us, but deciding what to buy her can be tough. Sure, you could go for a generic gift like a gift voucher or a bunch of flowers, but the chances are you’re looking for a unique idea that will put a real smile on her face. With Mother’s Day 2019 fast approaching (31st March), we thought we’d round up some of the best gift ideas to give you some food for thought…
After a busy week at work, there’s nothing better than a relaxing pamper session at a luxury spa or hotel. Give your mum an excuse to treat herself and book her a manicure, pedicure, or massage at her favourite spa, and she’s bound to be happy. If you want to involved and spend some quality time with mum, then make it a girly night away, booking a hotel and organising a meal and drinks in the evening. Apps like Treatwell are great if you want to find the best local spa, and many offer packages or two-for-one deals to help you save money.
If you’re trying to be more conscious of the environment when buying gifts this year, then you should consider eco-friendly clothing, like the t-shirts available here at Ultra Tee. It’s easy to buy a novelty gift, like a teddy bear or a cheap jumper with a funny quote on, but there’s little point if your mum isn’t going to wear it, resulting in unnecessary waste and more harmful emissions polluting our skies and seas. Investing in a high-quality, long-lasting jumper or tee that reflects her style and personality is a thoughtful, useful gift, and the best part is that your mum will think of you every time she wears it. The hardest thing is choosing the best design!
Nothing says “I love you” like a box of gooey, delicious chocolates. Some might say this is a cop-out gift, but if you’re able to find an indulgent box of luxury chocolates you know your mum will love, then why not? There are so many artisan chocolate brands to consider, like Hotel Chocolat, Choc on Choc, Holdsworth, Charbonnel et Walker, and Prestat, and flavours like salted caramel, brown butter, coconut milk, chai, and superfoods are particularly popular right now. Can’t decide on the perfect chocolate box or flavour combination? Head to your local chocolatier or bakery and ask them for a taste test - we promise we won’t tell anyone!
Whether it’s night cream, a face mask, or serum, treat your mum to some high-end skincare products that she wouldn’t typically buy herself. Last year, we rounded up some of the best eco-friendly vegan cosmetics brands, with brands like CutECOsmetics and Tropic Skincare going above and beyond to protect the environment and deliver the best cosmetics. Not sure what your mum would like the most? Have a nosey through her makeup drawer when you’re next at hers and stock up on some of her favourites - it saves her a job and she’ll be grateful!
Finally, consider a fail-safe gift that will make your mum smile. All women want to smell their best, so why don’t you stock up on a bottle or two of her favourite perfume? This gift is about showing your mum that you notice the little things. Buying her the perfume she wears every day may seem predictable, but it’s a special treat that will mean the world. If she likes to try new things, then buy a miniatures gift set, and she’ll be able to choose a new favourite scent.
There you have it - some of the best gift ideas for Mother’s Day 2019. Whatever you choose, we hope you have a fun day with your mum and that she feels loved, indulged, and special.
