Bed In Breakfast & A Bit Of Pampering

Bed in breakfast is an oldie but a goodie when it comes to Mother’s Day presents - plus it’s super easy! All you need to do is prepare her favourite breakfast - whether it’s scrambled eggs and toast, or pancakes - and serve it to her in bed (make sure to let her sleep in though). Don’t forget to include some fruit, freshly squeezed juice, coffee or tea too! If you want to make it a little more personal, you can pick out some fresh flowers and pop them on the breakfast tray in a little vase.

DIY Projects Mum Will Cherish Forever

Do your kids love arts, crafts and everything DIY? They could create something truly personal and unique for mum this Mother’s Day. A sweet card handwritten by your kids is a popular choice, and something mum would keep forever. Paintings and drawings also never go amiss - plus they’re perfect to pin to the fridge so mum can look at them every day! There are so many ideas for DIY projects out there, so don’t be afraid to get creative with your keepsake crafts.

Spoil Her With Something Small She’ll Definitely Love

Sometimes it’s the little things that can make your mum feel loved and adored. Elegant and minimalistic Mothers Day jewellery that she can wear every day or with her favourite casual outfit is definitely the perfect choice - especially if she’s obsessing over a current trend right now! If your mum loves yellow gold jewellery, then a simple pair of gold hoop earrings or an understated gold ring is your go-to. Does she stop and look at silver or white gold jewellery whenever she passes a jewellery store? Spoil her this Mother’s Day sale with a staple necklace, like this diamond pendant or this gold pendant.

Does her old watch need an upgrade? Spoil her with a stunning yet practical women's watch - so that every time she goes to check the time, she’ll be reminded of you. Does she love rose gold watches just as much as we do? We have earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces and much more that you can choose from! Giving your mum a wardrobe staple is thoughtful and sweet - it shows that you know her style and want to add a bit of colour or sparkle into her day!

Make It Personal With A Pendant

Pendants are the perfect gift for mum on Mother’s Day! The great thing about pendants is that you can make them completely personalised for your mum. You can choose her favourite women's jewellery metal (gold, silver, white gold or rose gold) and a pendant that means something special to her. Not to mention, you can get pendants engraved with a beautiful message that she will cherish forever!

When it comes to pendants for Mother’s Day, love heart locket necklaces are definitely a popular choice. If you have siblings, a necklace with two or three (or more) love heart pendants would be a very sweet gift for your mum, because the love heart lockets symbolise you and your siblings! If your mum is into simpler jewellery, a single heart pendant or a plain pendant that can be engraved is the perfect choice. Initial pendants are also personal and fabulous, so don’t forget about them either!

A Day Spent With Mum

Sometimes, your mum just wants to spend time with you. Brunches are a popular Mother’s Day outing, especially since the special day is on a Sunday. Delicious breakfast, coffee/tea and talking with you - perfect! Our personal favourite involves lots of coffee and plenty of delicious cake.

If your mum isn’t a morning person, then why not do something special for her in the afternoon? You could have a picnic in the park if it’s sunny, organise a home-cooked meal for her, or even take her out for dinner (and dessert of course). Whatever you choose to do, a personalised Mother's Day is sure to make your mum feel cherished and adored.
