7 Mother’s Day gift ideas: A guide


Written byMichelle Kemp

family giving gift to mum for mother's day
Want to treat them to some me-time this year? Mum, grandmother, or another special person, we’ve got the perfect gift or hamper filler for this Mother’s Day.

With Mother’s Day around the corner, you may be wondering what to get the mother figure in your life. 

Whether it’s your mum a grandparent, your dad, a guardian, or someone else who’s special to you, treat them to something they’ll really appreciate.

And what better than a Mother’s Day hamper, packed with wellness goodies? Discover seven of the best Mother’s Day presents below.

What can you put in a mum’s self-care basket?

If you’re planning on creating a self-care hamper this Mother’s Day, you might need some inspiration on what to put in it. Let’s start by delving into what self-care actually means.

Self-care looks different for everyone, but overall, it prioritises putting your needs first to keep yourself physically and mentally well.

Obviously, you can’t cover everything in a hamper, but you can include thoughtful gifts that will help your Mum or special one stay well and relaxed – even if only for a few minutes!

Think relaxing products for bath time, tasty treats, aromatherapy gifts, and lotions to help nourish their skin.

What do you give yourself for Mother’s Day?

Now the same goes if you’re going to get yourself a gift for Mother's Day this year.

You can go down the self-care route to give your body a treat for all the nurturing you’ve done over the past twelve months. Or you could tick off one of those items on your wish list…you deserve it!

What do you put in a self-care pack?

Let’s go through the basics to provide some inspiration if you’re stuck.

Try to think of how your special person likes to relax (if they get much time!) Would they rather lock themselves away for a warm bath or enjoy a cosy night on the sofa?
