Mother knows best but we know better when it comes to the perfect Mother’s Day gift, and we think we have just the thing for you!
Mother’s Day is just weeks away and is the perfect time to celebrate our marvellous mums and show them just how much we love and appreciate them.
Flowers and chocolate are always a treat (especially if our friends across the road at The Sweetie Jar have made up a special box from their chocolate cabinet) but why not shake things up a little this year and give your mum something a bit different? Here are a few suggestions we think mums everywhere will love.
Definitely not a Disaster
One of our new favourite ranges in No. 11 comes from Disaster Designs and they offer a wide range of beautifully unique handbags and purses, as well as quirky homewares. Wanting something more specifically for your mum? How about the brightly coloured Ta-Daa Mum Pouch In Gift Box with fun star charm and tassel – it even comes in a gift box – or the matching Ta-Daa (Mum) Compact Mirror?
A Hug in a Mug
Simple but sweet, a mug can be a very meaningful gift – especially if you take the time to make her a hot cuppa! Some of our all-time favourite mugs come from Emma Bridgewater, with their hand-painted floral, hearts and polka dot designs. For something a bit more personal why not choose the boxed Pink Hearts Mummy Half Pint Mug or a Purple Pansy Mum Half Pint Mug?
Bring the Spa Home
Who doesn’t love a bit of pampering, so why not treat your mum to some lovely smellies? With ranges from Crabtree & Evelyn, Arran and Scottish Fine Soaps we definitely have you covered when it comes to this category. For something indulgent try the After The Rain Body Gift Set, tell her she’s a star with a You are a Star Soap in a Tin or choose one of our most popular picks like the Crabtree & Evelyn Citron Mini 60 Second Fix for Hands or Sea Kelp Body Essentials.
Pretty in Powder
A wide selection of funky accessories, including scarves, socks and gloves - search our full Powder range to find the perfect gift for a stylish mum. There is something for everyone – the animal lovers, the floral fashionistas and the luxurious ladies. Each item is beautifully packaged in a Powder gift bag or box too, so save yourself the complicated wrapping!
For the Other Wonderful Women in Your Life
Mother’s day is the perfect time to also show the other important women in your life how much you love them, so don’t forget about all the wives, grannies, aunties and mothers-in-law. Many of the ideas above would make the perfect gifts for them too, or alternatively maybe a Grandma Mini Scented Candle/Auntie Mini Scented Candle or a copy of the World's Best Mother In Law gift book.
Gifts are great but alternatively you could spoil your mum with a special treat. Why not get up a little earlier and prepare her a scrumptious breakfast in bed. If you have little ones they’ll love to help too, so get in the kitchen and come up with something tasty and fuss-free, like pancakes or scrambled egg on toast.
Surprise her with an unexpected day out. Treat her to lunch or dinner at her favourite restaurant or pack up a picnic and head to her favourite beauty spot, be it the beach, up a hill or by the canal. If it’s a rainy day why not relax at home and have a cosy movie day, watching all her favourites. If she’s too tricky to buy for, hit the shops with her and let her pick a gift she really wants.
Don’t forget to check out our Mother’s Day card collection too, all in time for Sunday 31st March.
Whatever you decide, remember the day is all about her, let her know you love her, and any gift will be the perfect one!
