Beautiful Mother's Day gifts
We all want to shine a light on our mum on Mother’s Day. It’s the perfect time to let her
know how special she is and how much she means to you. You might want to thank her for all of her support and wise advice. You can of course opt to give her the classic bunch of flowers, but you could choose to surprise her with a special, original gift.
This year’s Mother’s Day may be the very first for your wife or girlfriend; a beautiful moment to reflect on motherhood. It may be one of the most common jobs in the world, but it’s also one of the most special. We feel that mums truly deserve a whole lot of praise for all that they do.
For the gastronome mothers
If your mum loves spending time in the kitchen cooking up a storm and creating the most delicious dinners and treats, she may enjoy a personal gift that can be used in the kitchen. Here are a few of our tips:
- an engraved chopping or serving board featuring her name or a sweet message
- a printed apron featuring photos of great memories
- a set of printed oven gloves featuring photos of your favourite moments
- a personalised recipe book, in which she can keep all of her cooking secrets!
For the first Mother's Day
Mother’s Day is an extra special moment for brand new mums. If you’d really like to make a great impression as a new dad, our advice would be to go the extra mile. Start with a nice breakfast in bed, and then add a great gift.
, such as a pendant engraved with your child’s name, a beautiful canvas or poster featuring her favourite photos or a cute baby romper that says ‘Happy First Mother’s Day!’ and your child’s name. Add some personalised chocolate
for the perfect finishing touch. That will be sure to put a big smile on her face.
For the laid back mothers
Some mums just take it all in their stride. They are your rock, always there to offer a shoulder to cry on. This is often accompanied by a nice glass of wine or a cuppa and some sage advice. For this type of mum, we would advise a beautiful engraved wine or tea glass
, featuring her name or a sweet message, along with some tasty personalised chocolate
A lovely wall clock featuring a photo of the two of you is another cool idea that symbolises the great times you spend together. If she’s a real lover of tea and biscuits, you could go for an engraved tea box or a printed biscuit tin.
For the very best grandma
Where would you be without your grandma always looking out for you?
Don’t forget grandma when it comes to Mother’s Day. We have a few ideas of how to show her that she’s incredibly important to you. All you need is a photo of those she loves most in the world; her lovely grandchildren. Found a photo? Great! Why not add the photo to a set of coasters, a biscuit tin, a serving tray or an enamel mug. Lots of practical ways for grandma to enjoy the photo!
For the mother who has everything
Some mums will say they have everything their heart desires and cannot possibly think anything they’d like as a gift. For these mums, we’d suggest going for something that is less about the gift itself and more about the intention, showing her how loved she is. We all know a photo can say more than a thousand words, so select the best photo(s) you have and create a canvas, poster or a birthday calendar.
Spread a little happiness
We’re all happy when we are given gifts. But giving gifts is just as nice, sometimes even nicer, than receiving them. This is especially true if the gift is personal. We feel that the most important thing about gift giving is to show the recipient that you care about them and have made an effort. Giving someone a lovely personal gift allows you to spread a little happiness. At YourSurprise, we call this ‘The Art of Giving’.
