For those of you not in the UK you might not know that Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 31st of March (as opposed to May, in North America). With it fast approaching you might be feeling unprepared. But, there is still time to secure that perfect gift — check out our Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide to find the best presents to buy for the occasion this year.

Keepsakes and Jewellery Gifts

Instead of the usual Flowers and Chocolates, why not get something for your mum that lasts a bit longer, something she can keep and cherish. If you know the type of jewellery she already wears, you can probably take a good guess on the sort of pieces to buy — keep the receipt just in case!

Check out Angelic Diamonds for stunning diamond rings and stylish drop earrings, guaranteed to put a smile on your mother’s face for the occasion. Take it to the next level with their bespoke service, bringing your ideas to life with their expertise and 3D technology.

A Girly Getaway

Although your instinct might be that your mum wants some ‘alone’ time, one of the best gifts you can give is some time together. Mother’s day is the perfect time to do a short getaway just the two of you.

If she’s a nature lover, why not take her to one of the most stunning counties in the UK? Visit Breamish Valley where you can stay in one of the Northumberland cottages with a hot tub. Relax with a glass of bubbly and explore local villages and countryside walks.

Or, if walking isn’t her thing, why not spend some time together at a spa? Book in for an afternoon tea for two where you can have a good catch up and do some relaxing together, a treat for the both of you!

Thoughtful Accessories

Sometimes the most thoughtufl gifts are the most useful gifts. Wouldn’t it be nice to see your mum using the gift you gave her all the time?

Birdcage umbrellas are perfect for the UK’s unpredictable weather. The shape of the brolly gives extra protection from the rain and a transparent dome canopy is great for being able to see what’s ahead. Pick one in her favourite pattern or colour to put a smile on her face.

If she’s always checking in with her friends online, why not get her a personalised phone case? Create a unique design that matches your mum’s personality and fashion and surprise her on the special day. Or, you could get a phone case with your favourite photo of the both of you printed on so that she can see a picture of you two every time she brings out her phone!

Gifts for the Home

Another thoughtful gift idea is to help fill your Mother’s home with wonderful gifts from you, so that she sees them and remembers how much you care.

One idea would be to get her a  digital photo frame. Upload your favourite photos to an SD memory card or USB stick and let your mum sit back and enjoy the slide show of all the memories. This is also a perfect gift for grand mums who would love to see lots of pictures of their family!

Most mum’s love to have their home smelling lovely, so consider a luxury candle. Jo Malone has an extensive range of fancy for-the-home candles with unique smells that you won’t find anywhere else, and candles last a lot longer than flowers.

Tasty Treats

Tried and true, chocolates are usually a favourite gift on Mother’s Day, sometimes you just want to treat her to something she can indulge in.

If she’s a vegan, you might usually struggle to get her something sweet that she’ll enjoy but have you thought of vegan chocolate? You could also make her a vegan Sunday dinner as an extra way to gain some brownie points!

Gin has been growing in popularity over the past few years, so your mum is guaranteed to love a luxury bottle for herself. You could treat her to a new pair of gin glasses to complete the perfect gift!

Whatever you end up getting her, it’s always the thought that counts. Spend some time, write a note, or tell your Mum just how much you love and appreciate her this Mothering Sunday!
