Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate the important women in your life. From new mums to great-grans, it’s a chance to make a gesture to show that you care and appreciate everything they do.

Over the past 12 months, families up and down the country have found themselves separated by the Covid-19 pandemic. With many mums, grandmas and aunties missing their relatives, it’s more important than ever to remind them how much you love them. Uncertainty still surrounds whether we can get together with our families and it is possible that restrictions will still be in place on Mother’s Day, therefore now is the time to start thinking about what to gift your mum this year. Whether we can see each other in person, drop off a gift on their doorstep, or need to pop something in the post, it will be important to make the day as special as possible for our loved ones, whilst keeping each other safe.

Perhaps your mum has a sweet tooth, they are in need of some pampering, or love hand-made surprises? There are countless gifts which could put a smile on your mum’s face. But with so many options, how do you ensure that you’re picking the perfect pressie?

In this article we take a look through some of the best gifting ideas for Mother’s Day, including some DIY ideas if you’re feeling crafty and presents which can be delivered direct to their homes. You could even combine elements of them all to create a super special Mother’s Day experience.

Sweet hampers

Mums and nans deserve a sweet treat every now and again – and what better excuse than on Mother’s Day.

It’s been scientifically proven that there is a direct link between taste and memories. In fact, certain flavours and smells can transport you back in time to the moment you first experienced them. So why not take your loved one on a trip down memory lane with a hamper filled with retro sweets and chocolates.

Create your very own sweet shop experience from the comfort of home and surprise your mum with favourites from her childhood. Reminisce over traditional pick ‘n’ mix sweets including cola cubes, jelly babies and American hard gums, or enjoy old fashioned delights such as Sherbert Fountains or dib dabs.

The Awesome Hamper Company offers an incredible range of pre-made sweet hampers in lots of different sizes to suit any budget. Containing a variety of different confectionary (including individually bagged retro sweets), each hamper comes in its own wicker basket, which also makes a perfect storage box once all the sweets have been devoured (think of it as two gifts in one!).

Ideal for mums who have a sweet tooth.

Handmade florals

All mums love fresh flowers. Mother’s Day falls at a time when spring blooms are starting to appear and you’ll find an abundance of flowers in season including tulips and daffodils.

Instead of opting for a pre-made bunch from a florist or the supermarket, why not get creative and make your own bespoke bunch.

We suggest buying a few bunches of single stems from your local supermarket, and foraging for some foliage on your daily walk. Mix and and match the flowers and foliage to create your very own unique arrangement. Tie the stems with some twine, wrap in kraft paper, and complete with a flourish of ribbon. You’ll should be able to make a few bunches out of the flowers, so this is ideal if you are giving multiple gifts for Mother’s Day.

To make Mother’s Day extra special, why not combine your hand-made bouquet with a sweet hamper from The Awesome Hamper Company? They even offer sweet bouquets so mum could have a bouquet of fresh flowers AND a bouquet of delicious treats!

Relaxation station

Treat your mum to a moment of tranquillity by creating a DIY spa experience. We may not be able to enjoy a day at a spa at the moment, but there’s no reason why mum can’t make the most of some R&R.

Create a box filled with relaxing, thoughtful gifts, such as scented candles, a face mask, chocolate goodies or some essential oils, and if you have a music streaming service, why not create a relaxing playlist especially for her. The combination of different treats is sure to create a sanctuary of peace, providing mum with the chance to unwind, switch off and take a bit of time for herself.

Plus, if you’re unable to be with your mum on Mother’s Day itself, you can leave the gift box on her doorstep, so she can enjoy what’s inside it in her own time.
