With Mother’s Day not too far away, I thought I’d put together a collection of my top gift ideas for this year. Sunday 27th is the big day so now is the perfect time to make some plans and prepare some gifts. These are some of my favourite Mother’s Day gift ideas I have come across so far.
You could be treating your partner, mum, grandma or friend this Mother’s Day to make them feel special and I feel like these are all lovely present ideas.
*Disclaimer – We have been gifted some products mentioned in this blog post for review*
First up, one of my favourite places to get personalised gifts is Asda Photo Online, this year they have some lovely products that would be perfect to gift!
They have so much to choose from including photo cushions, photo canvasses and slate pictures which come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. They would be great to have a photo of you and mum or the grandkids on there! The website is easy to use and you can upload your chosen photos ready to be added onto your chosen products.
I’ve ordered from these guys a few times now and the quality is amazing. If you follow me on instagram @threelittlezees you can often see our giant photo fridge magnets in my stories when I chat in my kitchen, they are probably my favourite thing I’ve ordered so far.
If you’re struggling to find a gift, how about an experience for mum? Buyagift have hundreds to choose from on their website. You simply purchase the gift experience and can send this via email to them or you can receive it in a lovely box which includes the voucher and gift it to them in person. I thought an afternoon tea experience would be perfect to celebrate mother’s day. Let mum relax and have a nice treat! £34.99 and 465 venues to choose from.
I also thought the Treat Her Experience Box would make a fab present as there are 2955 experiences to choose from, this voucher includes a selection of afternoon teas, relaxing spa days and adrenaline adventures, some for one and some for two people. From glamping or wine tasting to massages, white water rafting and dinner with a view. They really will be spoiled for choice. £49.99
Are you gifting a new mum or a mum to be? My Expert Midwife have some really wonderful and useful gifts. I personally used this brand before, during labour and after birth and I really rate their products.
The Mum to be set would be great for those who are expecting and contains products that can be used before during and after birth.
The classic collection of award-winning midwife-developed skincare products features the best-selling Spritz for Bits alongside itch and stretchmark reducer, Fantastic Skin Elastic, perineal massage oil, Peri Prep Your Bits and natural nipple balm, No Harm Nipple Balm. For baby, the set includes baby bottom soother, No Harm Bum Balm. If that’s not enough, each set comes with a free e-book detailing weeks 20-40 of pregnancy and access to an expert webinar delivered by one of the registered in-house midwives, and a clear toiletries case, perfect to pack in a hospital bag.
This collection is perfect for all mums-to-be, supporting the journey from the second trimester or the start of the third, through birth, breastfeeding and looking after baby. Available from £78
The Just For Mum set supports the journey from the second trimester (or start of the third) through birth and breastfeeding. This midwife developed and curated set includes our bestselling award-winning products developed to relieve a range of challenges encountered during pregnancy, birth and into motherhood. The set includes: Spritz for bits (my goodness this is a game changer after giving birth), Fantastic Skin Elastic, No Harm Nipple Balm and Peri Prep Your Bits. Available from £53
If your mum deserves a touch of luxury and relaxation this Mother’s Day, why not treat her to one of ARRAN Sense of Scotland’s Hand or Body care gift sets. Available in ARRAN’s bestselling fragrances, Glenashdale, an uplifting blend of grapefruit and vetiver, and Glen Rosa, a soothing blend of fig and ylang ylang. These beautifully packaged sets are guaranteed to impress. £30 each.
I also think the After The Rain Wash Bag gift set would make a wonderful gift, something that mum can take away on a little break or keep toiletries in at home, it contains 300ml After the Rain Shower Gel, 200ml After the Rain Body Lotion, 15ml Eau de Parfum and a 40ml Hydrating Hand Cream to protect hands from the harsh winter weather. £60
Another lovely treat for mum could be some hand care, perfect for hard working hands (we all know how busy mums are) and I think these two gift sets from SEAMS beauty would do the trick! Their cream is instantly absorbing and made with 10 naturally active ingredients.
–Shea Butter and Allantoin – softens & soothes
–Oat Beta-glucan – intensely moistures
–Macadamia Nut Oil & Rosehip Oils – nourishes, restores
–Pro-vitamin B5 – hydrates
–Swiss Garden Cress – evens skin tone
–Hydrolysed Keratin – conditions nails
– Lavender Oil – calms
–A Biomimetic Lipid Complex – locks in moisture, supports the skins lipid barrier, protects
The Coutouriers Hand Cream set is £20 and includes 75ml of the hand cream and an organic cotton pouch. The Hand Supreme gift set is £40 and includes
- Couturiers Hand Cream 75ml
- Silk Touch Hand & Nail Oil 28ml
- Artisan Hand Sanitiser 50ml

This gift idea would be perfect for new mamas or mamas to be – from the UK’s #1 Leakproof Period Brand Modibodi. A leakproof breastfeeding bra that not only offers support but catches the spills from leaking boobs, absolute game changer! In my 7 years of breastfeeding, I’ve only now come across this and I think its amazing. SUPER comfortable and no need to worry about milk spilling out onto my clothing. £32.00
I also think the post-partum control brief would be great together to gift as a set. It’s a great all in one product as you can use it for the following benefits.
For: Postpartum bleeding, heavy discharge or light to moderate bladder leaks after birth
Feels: Like shapewear – smooth and supportive with built-in protection
Your Impact: Replaces disposable pads, liners & tampons = better for the planet, better for your body – Available for £30.00
Treat your mum or mother figure in your life to the teams stunning selects which include, super soft loungewear, cosy cable socks and seamless sports sets, in stunning pastel hues.
Pretty Polly’s Eco-Wear collection makes the perfect gift for the eco-conscious receiver due to their sustainable range of hosiery, seam-free underwear and leggings made from the first biodegradable polyamide in the world.
Renowned for being a trailblazer within the hosiery and underwear industry, the brand has been celebrated as being the one-stop shop for all hosiery needs and boasts a broad denier offering of 20-200.

Elytrum have some wonderful self care gifts for mums, their Soft Dry Body Brush (£16.00), which is suitable for sensitive skin or delicate skin areas. They also have their Luxury Long Back Brush with Cotton Cords (£22.00) which is a wonderful self-care gift for shower and bath, long back brush covers every inch of a body very easily and flexibly.
The soft body brush would be particularly suitable for women with mature skin who have a passion for skincare and self-care routines. All of their beautiful body brushes are 100% natural, made with sustainable plant fibres such as jute, sisal and coconut, and which are ethically handmade in Sri Lanka.
Now this next gift I wouldn’t suggest giving to your mum but if you are looking for something for your partner for Mother’s Day, then this is it. The Satisfyer Pro 2. Doesn’t really get more self care than this is they are looking for a little ‘me time’. With its air pulse stimulation technology, whisper quiet motor and a soft silicone head, the Pro 2 sets the mood to reach the peak of your desire. They can use it together with their partner or on their own. If you’ve tried it then you know and if you haven’t well, you should.
A better mum, a BetterYou? Another great idea for a gift could be some of these health suppliments, they have it all from vitamins to magnesium bath salts, perfect for relaxing. I really loved the look of the vitamin sprays – great to keep in your handbag/changing bag where you’ll see it and remember to take it!
The magnesium sleep lotion also screamed out to me, funnily enough, from the childrens range because what greater gift to a mum than for her children to sleep well at night and give her the little break that she needs.
There’s a noisy monster under Alexander’s bed. Baby T’s monster has a rumbling tummy.
Daddy has monstrous problems at work. But what about Mummy?
Join Alexander in his latest colourful quest to find the answer to the puzzling question…
Are Mummies scared of monsters?
Inspired by the style of Eric Carle and Lauren Child, Are Mummies Scared of Monsters follows Alexander on a quirky, colourful new quest, perfect for curious little ones with a playful sense of humour. Fransie’s previous children’s books have been hailed as “fun, bold and colourful” by Reading Zone, “beautiful” by BBC Radio and praised for having “quirky originality” from the Press Association. I think this would make a wonderful gift for mum of little ones to read together!
You could also be creative at home and make something homemade for mum with these lovely ideas from Bonne Maman.
Using empty Bonne Maman jars, make a luxurious homemade spa kit – the perfect gift for relaxation. The homemade beauty kit can include body scrub, foot soak and lip balm, all a different, beautiful scent. Or for another homemade gifts, try making these zen succulents
Or how about a delicious, edible treat to celebrate Mother’s Day? Make a batch of Thumbprint Shortcakes then stack and tie with a ribbon and present in a gift box with a jar of new Bonne Maman Hazelnut Chocolate Spread. Zesty Lemon, Thyme & Mirabelle Mini cakes also make a sweet and divine gift for your special Maman! A gorgeous filling of Bonne Maman Mirabelle Plum Conserve & delicious with a glass of fizz!
