Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Thursday 01st March 2018

Good old mum. She does do a lot for us from tidying up our mess and looking after us when we’re ill as children to offering advice to helping out when we need it as grownups. That is why it’s only right that come Mothers Day she gets a special present and is reminded of just how appreciated she is as let’s face it, we may not always remember to tell her.

It can be tricky to know what to buy her though. She’s your mum and most mums tend to have everything they want, or tell you they don’t want you to spend your money which is no help! That’s why we have come up with a great guide to help you out and pick a gift that not only lets her know how much she means to you but spoils her too.


Clintons is a great place to browse for the perfect gift as well as the perfect card. What about a Willow tree ornament for under £40? There are a vast selection of figurines to choose from which means you will be able to find one that best suits your mum and your relationship.

Or if your mum prefers candles then Yankee have an array of scents and candles of all sizes, some of which are on offer for Mothers Day such as Peony.

Smaller items such as personalised wine glasses and teddy bears make a great present from smaller ones and there are plenty of gift choices for grandmothers too.



Every woman loves perfume so why not indulge mum this year with a luxurious new scent? Jimmy Choo ‘Blossom’ is a new edition; described as a modern floral fragrance and designed with ‘the life of the party ladies in mind’ a perfect Mothers Day gift for mums who are young at heart.  Another new fragrance is Caroline Ferrera’s ‘Good Girl’ which is described as both ‘freshly light and moodily dark, designed to capture women’s complexity’ this perfume also comes in a stunning high heeled shoe shaped bottle for the ultimate wow factor.

Staff in the Perfume Shop are well trained and always helpful so will be able to help you decide on a perfect scent should you have trouble deciding. Gift wrapping is also available.



What better gift to get the mum who has everything than a beautiful bouquet of her favourite flowers? Nothing says thank you for being a brilliant mum more than the thought and attention that goes into putting together a special floral arrangement so why not brighten up her day with an order at Bernard Chapman; there are plenty of choices from a country garden hand tied bouquet to a vibrant gift box so whatever your mums taste or personality there will be bouquet to suit.



Is there an old TV series your mum always loved or a classic film? Perhaps she keeps saying she wants to update her album collection or has a few stand up comedians she enjoys. Whatever she’s into you can guarantee to find it at HMV and they always have brilliant offers on too such as 2 DVD’s for £20 so be sure to keep an eye out.   


You could give mum something extra special this Mothers Day and treat her to a new piece of jewellery. H. Samuel has an extensive range of beautiful gifts aimed at spoiling mum from beautifully designed rings to exquisite necklaces and bracelets. What’s more, you can buy a gift that really shows how much you love her and appreciate everything she does and save yourself a few pennies too as H. Samuel currently have many items in the sale! Best get shopping!


If you’re still undecided then you could opt for a gift voucher from one of our many stores and let your mum choose her own gift. From HMV to Simply Brows and Beauty, there is plenty of choice so why not treat your mum to the gift of treating herself.

To make Mum feel extra special you could also cook a Mothers Day lunch so that she can put her feet up all day and relax. Tesco always have great food deals as well as recipe inspiration so you can find something easy – but tasty – to make everyone. Accompany lunch with a bottle of prosecco to wash it down and finish it off with indulgent dessert to ensure mum will feel well and truly spoilt.
