Here in the UK, Mother’s Day is on the 31st of March. Not too many days left. It is very nice that people buy me presents for being a Mum, and I do not wish to be ungrateful. But it would be nice to have a say in what I really need or want. Just in case anyone is reading (hint hint) here are some unique gift ideas for Mother’s Day. Or what I’d really like.

Unique Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

If you are anything like me, you hate buying and receiving ‘stuff’ just for the sake of it. If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know that I am on a bit of a decluttering binge. I already have so many things, that I do not need any more jewellery, handbags or shoes. I would much rather make some memories than have a new perfume (which I don’t need!), so I much prefer gifting experiences over things.

So what unique gift ideas for Mother’s Day would I rather receive?

A Trip to See Historic Places

I love history, and a great day out for me is visiting a castle, stately home or museum. A lovely gift for another Mum who feels the same would be a membership of English Heritage or the National Trust. Even on the worst of weather days a great time can be had. One of my favourite places to visit is York.

Maybe even a weekend away (with or without the children) would be a nice idea if the budget will allow?

A Day Experience

One of my favourite gifts to give or receive is the promise of a day doing something that I have never done before. Maybe a day learning a new skill or being creative? There are lots of experience days out there, and you could learn a new skill such as sewing, crochet, jewellery making or glass making. My gorgeous other half treated me to a morning session of pottery and ceramics last year, and we really enjoyed it.

Not into creative days? How about racing a supercar, or a session in a recording studio? (Actually I’d love this last one!)

Spa Day

A day being pampered is always welcome. I recently spent a day at My Little Farm Spa. and it was such a lovely relaxing and reenergising experience. Who doesn’t love a bit of self care?

I do realise that this could be a bit of an ask, and so some luxury spa products to do my own pampering is an option. My Little Farm Spa used Neom products like these from John Lewis.

Or maybe, if you have a bigger budget, you could buy a hot tub or sauna for your own use at home? (B&Q even sell portable hot tubs and saunas these days!)

Notebooks

Is there a mum who doesn’t need a list to remember all she has to do? I live my whole life by lists, and the older I get the more I realise that I need to write things down.

I love notebooks. As a writer and blogger I always carry one in my bag. My favourite ones are from Rifle Paper Company. They match my favourite fabrics. You can get a great selection at Waterstones.

 

 

 

 

 

Gift of Time

At the end of the day, we can all be on a bit of a tight budget. For those with very little budget, why not gift the best thing that you can – time? All Mums are time-short. There are never enough hours in the day for all we want to do. So why not pledge to do something to ease the burden for the next few days/weeks? Maybe you could

  • wash up every night for a week
  • do some other housework
  • offer a shoulder massage
  • take the children away for a few hours so that Mum can have some me-time.

Why not print out my template for your own personalised time gift voucher and place it inside your Mother’s Day card?

So, I hope that I have given you a few pointers towards unique gift ideas for Mother’s Day. Do let me know if there are any of these that you would love to try out yourself – and do get those hints dropped firmly into your love ones minds before the big day! Why not pin this post or share for later?

      I agree, memories make better gifts than presents in my book. Especially when people are hard to buy for.

    I’ve just had the child free weekend away so maybe I’ll go for the SPA day for mother’s day. I’ll start warming the kids up to the creating the space for me and perhaps sort something similar for my Mum too. #Globalblogging

      That sounds like a great idea. My mum is more into the history and day trips away. I hope you enjoy your day!

    These are some great ideas! Like the history one but not sure my wife would appreciate it so much. Will have to try something more relaxing I think #triuphanttales

    For Mothers Day I’m all about a lay in, long soak in a bath, musical movie on the tele and a meal out with my boys – not much but just a chilled day where I’m not the one doing most of the parenting!
    Thank you for sharing this with us at #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you back next week!

    oh gosh yes, I love notebooks! Pamper days are lovely too but as they’re so rare I’m learning to make little moments of relaxation happen each day. If you have a Weleda Wellbeing Advisor in your area you can book in a 1:1 skincare consultation which will include a min-facial using 100% organic products. No obligation to buy anything, we just love giving people a relaxing experience and a chance to find out about such a brilliant company.

    Great ideas. I think experience days make great gifts, I love buying experiences rather than things they might not use #kcacols

        Jo, these are all splendid gift ideas! I, too, as a mom, would love a gift that truly matters to me. Usually my children pick very well for me. I would love a weekend at a B&B! I live in the US, but, my dream is to visit the UK. Thank you for sharing all these lovely ideas!
