Gift inspiration for Mother's Day and other Special Days for Mums

Mother’s Day is fast approaching (it’s on 14th in the UK ina 2021) and it’s got me thinking about what would make a great present for mums. Personally what I would like best are the things money can’t buy and aren’t even possible: sleep, lottery win, my children to spend a whole day doing what I ask first time... Failing that I’ve been searching Etsy to create a wish list of gifts that I would love to receive for Mother’s Day, my birthday or just to be shown that I’m loved. So if you are looking for inspiration of what to buy for your mum or the mother of your children check out these ideas. All products are from UK sellers.

Gift Ideas for Mums on Mother's Day


Jewellery always makes a lovely gift, but throw in some personalisation and it becomes something extra special and unique. I love this necklace from schnuggleshq which you could personalise with the initials of each child.

Alternatively if it’s likely there might be more children in the future, but you still want something personalised you could choose a necklace like this from Elmeray which can be personalised with a special message.

For a more classic approach (and for faster delivery because you don't need to wait for personalisation) you could choose a stylish handmade bracelet like this one from WildNora.

For women that don’t wear much jewellery, a keyring is a good alternative: we all have keys! DollyBirdUK have a great selection of personalised key chains including this Mama Bear design.

Another traditional gift for Mums is a bunch of flowers and while I absolutely love getting fresh flowers I always find it sad how quickly they die, even when they are in a pot (I'm not very green fingered). A great alternative is quality fake flowers like this beautiful posy in a jar from FlowerStudioShop.

Keeping on the plant theme, these planters from DimensionalDesignsGB are great for succulents or cacti and they look modern and sleek. I love that they are 3D printed and the bottom section works as a tray to prevent over watering. All 3 colour options look amazing.

Surface space is a premium in our house, but I love to have pictures up on the wall. These prints from GameleoStudio would make a great addition to the wall and they are cheaper than a family portrait, while still having a personalised touch.


Or for something completely different how about turning your family into custom peg dolls by PeggyAndPip. Does this family look familiar to you at all?
