Mother's Day Gift Ideas

With Mother's Day just around the corner, it's probably about time to think about picking up something for it. I'm always a last minute Mother's Day kinda gal, picking up a card on Moonpig or Funky Pigeon and getting it sent direct if I can't be there, or buying a bunch of flowers and cooking her a nice dinner. That's my usual trick, a dinner! But if you fancy buying a little something then I've got a few ideas here for you. 

Bon Marche contacted me a little while ago and asked if they could send my Mum a little Mother's Day hamper* and one of their beautiful dresses*. Of course I agreed, I'm forever looking for ways to pamper my parents and this was such a thoughtful way! My mum's not usually a dress wearer and saves them for more of a special occasion and I thought this one from their new Spring Collection, the David Emanuel Floral Print Side Pleat Jersey Dress* was perfect! Blue is totally her colour and so this printed number is definitely something she'd wear. It looks so nice on. The dress is so flattering and we we're actually really surprised how much we liked it! Like I said my mum is definitely not a dress wearer, so to get her in a dress and for her to like it is verging on a miracle and trust me I'm not lying, she really did like it! 

On to the rest of the bits in the hamper and they kindly sent a lovely blue scarf. Like I said my Mum loves blue and this is perfect! Super simple and I can imagine this looking lovely with a white tee and jeans. A nice addition and something I'd never think of buying her, so will keep that in mind for the future, and you all definitely should too! Something a little more practical and the umbrella too is a great idea. This cute printed one is perfect, nothing too 'out there' so it's really useable. My mum's already popped this into her handbag for when the inevitable rain comes out. 

Now of course, the gifts I'm forever buying my mum. Chocolate and beauty bits. I mean you can't go wrong with them right? Hotel Chocolat chocolates are that bit more luxe than the others we can pick up in the supermarket so it feels that bit more special and the 'for my Mum' detailing on the front just makes it that bit better. If in doubt, beauty-wise I always go straight to Sanctuary Spa as I know she loves it. She actually took a trip to the Spa back in the day and has been using the products for as long as I can remember. This gift set included a Body Wash, Cream and Scrub in beautiful beautiful packaging. 

This gift hamper was literally perfect and I couldn't have picked the things out better myself. Will be taking inspiration from Bon Marche for years to come. 

Like I said before though, these ideas along with the bunch of flowers or a dinner or meal out are perfect! Just a little something that I just know our Mum's will appreciate...  

But if that still hasn't quite helped you decide then I think this nifty little thing from My Voucher Codes will... 

What have you got your Mum for Mother's Day?
