Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2019 – Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day
March is here which means it’s spring and it’s soon time to change the clocks! It also means Mother’s Day is coming up soon! This year, Mother’s Day is on Sunday the 31st of March which means we still have a few weeks to plan how to celebrate our mothers. Most mums only wish for 5 minutes’ peace or “nice children” as my mum always said when we were little but it’s nice to treat your mum to something special on Mother’s Day anyway — something just for her to enjoy.
Here are some of my favourite gift ideas for Mother’s Day 2019:
- For the mum who loves interior design
If your mum loves interior details, she’ll love the selection of lights, electric candles and lanterns that are available from www.lights4fun.co.uk. Lights4fun is a family business based in Yorkshire that offers decorative lighting for your home and garden, the majority of which are made by hand too.
I have a lovely Black Marble Bower Table Lamp & Bulb from them and it’s so pretty and gives of a lovely and cosy light.
- For the mum who’s always out and about
Mums of young children usually need to carry a lot of stuff with them when they go out. A mother’s bag needs to be large and filled with all the magic stuff she needs to entertain, feed, water and clean her kids on a day out… Scaramanga is a vintage bag, accessory and interiors retailer and they have a great selection of bags suitable for people who love practical and stylish bags for busy days out.
Scaramanga’s Canvas Shopper Tote is a new design that is very versatile and large enough to fit everything you might need for the family on a day out. It’s made from distressed hand dyed canvas material which is very durable and has two sturdy leather handles.
To make this bag an even more special gift for Mother’s Day, you can personalise it with an embossed bag tat. Choose from 2 fonts and gold, silver or bling embossing.
- For the mum with a sweet tooth
A chocolate treat is a classic Mother’s Day gift that is always appreciated! A box of chocolates is a choice that many go for but what’s better than a box of chocolate? A giant version of a chocolate bar, of course!
CoolStuff.com is a shop that offers the most innovative, cool, and fun gadgets on the market and they continuously work on having the newest and most exciting gadgets in their online shop. Of course, they have lots of brilliant suggestions for Mother’s Day gifts and one on my favourite ideas is the Gigantic Chocolate Toblerone which makes a great chocolate treat that lasts a lot longer than a box of chocolates…
The giant Toblerone looks amazing and is a lot of fun too. The box is a perfect supersized replica of a Toblerone filled with 48 pieces of 35-gram Toblerone chocolate bars! It’s the perfect gift for a mum with a sweet tooth to enjoy over a few weeks or months.
- For the mum who deserves a breakfast in bed and a lie-in
One thing many mums wish for is the chance to have a lie-in in the morning and having someone else make breakfast for the family while they enjoy a calm breakfast in bed… For the perfect breakfast in bed, choose the mum’s favourite breakfast foods (my current obsession is almond croissants and lots of coffee!) and present them on a beautiful tray like the Brushed Gold Drinks Tray from VonShef. It’s a really versatile and stylish tray that can be used for serving drinks or foods or for decoration around the house. We use ours on top of our footstool to create a table in our living room too.
- For the mum who loves beauty
If you’re treating a mum who loves beauty and skincare products, then a gorgeous cosmetic bag from Wilful Ink would make a lovely gift! I have the Gallinule Bag and the design is amazing!
The bag is a great size for your favourite beauty products but can also be used as a pencil case or simply to store all those small essentials in your handbag to keep it a bit more organised.
All Wilful Ink products are made in England and all the designs are hand illustrated in ink and watercolor. The designs and colours are stunning and also available on wallpaper, fabric, art prints and homeware products.
- For the mum who loves cosy nights in
Deyongs is a family run home textile company that has been around for over 170 years and specialises in high quality bedding sets, sheets, luxury bath towels, throws and more. One of their very luxurious Hudson Throws would make an amazing treat for mum this Mother’s Day, especially is she’s the kind who loves to snuggle up on the sofa at the end of the day.
They’re available in a stunning range of colours and are such impressive and luxurious quality — thick, warm and super soft to keep mum cosy when relaxing.

- For the mum who loves holidays in the sunshine
If your mum or the mum you’re treating this Mother’s Day loves travelling then a sand-free towel from Tesalate would make the perfect gift. Tesalate have a stunning range of sand-free beach towels that are ultra-compact, super absorbent and rapidly drying — perfect for travelling, beach holidays or even the gym. The innovative design means that sand does not stick to the towels, even when wet, making them ideal for sandy holiday destinations.
