The most beautiful Mother's Day gift ideas
Look at that, it’s almost May! And you know what that means...Mother’s Day is coming soon! Which means you’ll have to start thinking about the perfect Mother’s Day gift ideas. Although it’s important to love and cherish your beautiful mum everyday, sometimes an entire day dedicated to making her feel special can mean the world to her.
Our mums do a lot for us - they scared away bedtime nightmares when we were young, taught us how to be strong even during the tough times and have always been there for a much needed hug. This year, say thank you to your mum in a thoughtful and caring way with our great gift guide. Keep reading to see all the different ways you can spoil mum - from diamond bangles, to DIY projects and more!
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 everyday! 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 jewellery that she can wear everyday 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, then a simple pair of gold hoops or an understated yellow gold cubic zirconia 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 with a staple necklace, like this sterling silver diamond pendant or this white gold radiant diamond pendant.
Does her old watch need an upgrade? Spoil her with a stunning and yet practical watch - so that every time she goes to check the time, she’ll be reminded of you. Does she love rose gold 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 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 hearts 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 hearts 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!
Not to mention, you can also get a personalised pendant for mum with our collection of ‘mum’ pendants! With ‘mum’ featured on the pendants already, they’re the perfect gift for Mother’s Day! Everytime your mum wears this pendant, she’ll be reminded of you.
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.
Jewellery for the mum who has everything
If your mum is quite the fashionista, you may be a little lost on how to spoil her with gorgeous jewellery! Don’t worry, we’ve got the perfect gift for her with our Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Pearls, pearls and more pearls! You can never go wrong with pearls - they’re timeless, classic and oh-so chic. Pearls have been adored for centuries and for good reason too.
