Top tips for Mother's Day gift ideas
In the UK, Mother's Day is held on the fourth Sunday of Lent; exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday - it usually falls in the second half of March / early April.
Often it feels as though Christmas and New Year is barely over before the shops are declaring the imminent arrival of Mother’s Day, causing people across the land to rack their brains to think of the ideal gift for their wonderful mum, mother in law, step mum, foster mum, grandma, aunty or whomever they think of as a mother figure (and sometimes that’s Dad!) without resorting to the same old things.
Finding inspiration for gift ideas on birthdays and Christmas for our mums alone isn’t always easy so when Mother’s Day rolls around, we can sometimes find the creativity reserves running dry. There are the usual suspects that feature on most people’s lists when thinking about presents for the first lady in our lives and for many mums, that’s just fine.
But it needn’t be the case! There are plenty of options for more heartfelt gifts that also provide a departure from the norm so why not try to go a little extra this year and see how impressed she is.
